Replace PRV or not? Cost?
I posted a few weeks ago about the teperature and pressure relief valve leaking on the water heater. I got that replaced and so far so good. Paid $140 - $22 min service charge, min $85 - 1 hr labor and then the parts.
They tested the pressure coming in the house and its at 80, which I understand is the highest you really want coming in. They said the pressure reducing valve the builder installed was a builder grade and had failed. Its not at the water meter outside, but in the basement near the shut offs. TO replace it, inclduing parts and labor will be about $398.00.
I have a lot of other things competing for the money, so if its not absolutely needed I want to pass, but if its something that really needs to be done, I will.
What do you guys think?
