Ensure you have a 350kpa Pressure limiting valve installed | Orbit Plumbing

The importance of a 350kpa pressure limiting valve is paramount for some plumbing products and appliances. Especially when it comes to dishwashers and refrigerators. According to Orbit’s Plumber Frankston the majority of fridge hoses are not rated to be able to handle the higher pressures that comes from the main water supply line running through or underneath your home.

When this is the case our Somerville Plumber is best off installing a 350kpa limiting valve. This secures your house from flooding and if anything was to happen down the path which is unlikely, your insurance would investigate the cause and take into consideration whether or not this limiting valve was installed or not.

In the case of a dishwasher it normally depends on what the dishwashers installation requirements are. Usually if you have a dishwasher that allows a hot connection it is more likely that a 350kpa limiting valve would be required although there are some dishwashers that require this valve on cold connections as well.

Our Mornington Peninsula plumbers will always install a 350kpa pressure limiting valve where required to ensure that your fixtures are installed correctly and to the Victorian Building Authorities plumbing regulations.
