Water Pressure Issue

Page 2 of 2  


Because they are basically in the same location, the problem obviously is in or near that location. The simple (and first thing a plumber will check) is the strainers on the faucets and crud inthe valve at the toilet.
An expansion tank will not do a thing for the problem. They are used as "overpressure" protection on a sealed system (well or house with a one=way valve on city water). They also cure water hammer if they are near the source of the 'hammer'.

shh...I know that. ;-) In fact, I posted the link the the pdf instructions on how to clean a toilet valve.
I'm just waiting to hear from either of the 2 posters who think an expansion tank will solve this particular problem.

I figured you did but...
I also am waiting with baited breath for the explanation. Should be good. Probably not as good as Gary Slusser was. Haven't seen anything from him for many years. Last I heard of him was my post pointing out (for the umpteenth time) the pressure outof thetank is the same regardless of the pre charge. Sudden silence at that point as if all the hundreds of possts trying to get it through his thick head finally sunk in.
