Easy Install

By Dave

from Massachusetts

Verified Buyer

Comments about Watts SB1156F 1/2" Bronze High Capacity Feed Water Pressure Regulator:

This was to replace my bad feeder. This works great and was easy to install. I did make an adjustment from the factory set 15 psi down to about 13 psi. I only have the 1 floor to heat. It works great.

Good so far...

Comments about Watts SB1156F 1/2" Bronze High Capacity Feed Water Pressure Regulator:

Used this to replace an existing pressure regulator that was clogged (same brand, with different hook-up). It fixed the no water issue, but did have to dial down the pressure after install.

Replaced an ancient unit that I didn't trust and suspected of leaking, raising the pressure, and burping the releif valve.

Watts Regulator Works Great!

By Picky Ricky

from Loda, Il

Verified Buyer

Comments about Watts SB1156F 1/2" Bronze High Capacity Feed Water Pressure Regulator:

Set My Watts regulator to keep my hydronic system to 12# cold pressure. As the water heater heats the water, the hot water expansion is absorbed into my Amtrol Expansion Tank. As it circulates through the pump, any and all air is expelled through my Webstone Air Separator. This system is working great.

Fit Right In - Replaced 30 Year Old Unit

By Dan

from Connecticut

Verified Buyer

Comments about Watts SB1156F 1/2" Bronze High Capacity Feed Water Pressure Regulator:

As mentioned, this unit replaced one that was at least 30 years old and fit right in perfectly.
Only caution I would give is that the regulated pressure was much higher than the advertised preset of 15psi. I had to drain the pressure off the system again, back the regulator all the way out, turn the water back on and screw down the regulator until I had the 15psi. If not for that, I would give it five stars.
