I'm redoing my plumbing with copper tubing and Shark Bite fittings. Am I making a poor decision by not reinstalling a water pressure meter? I think my flow resistor does the same general thing.
You're better of replacing your plumbing with pex tubing & crimp rings & fittings. It'll be a lot cheaper & easier in the end. Skip the built in pressure regulator & use an inline version at the spigot in the campground. These are easily replaced when they fail.
