water pressure reducing valve

Posted By: Rob Gibson

Hello there....

A couple of days ago I started to hear a light pulsing sound in my plumbing system. I can hear it mostly in the water supply line to the icemaker on the fridge. You can also see the water slighly pulsing when I turn on any faucet. Every once in a while it will stop. I called the water company and they said that the water pressure coming into my house was 90-100 psi, which they say is normal in my neighborhood. The water company says that it is probably the water pressure reducing valve which I believe is attached right before the main shutoff valve. It looks like a round valve with something in the middle that I believe can be twisted to adjust the valve. The pulsing sound stops as soon as I turn off the main valve into the house. How can I check that the valve is faulty without calling a plumber.

I hope that you can help me....

Thanks

Rob
