        Fit Right In - Replaced 30 Year Old Unit

              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.

                    This regulator work as advertised. It was easy to install with proper tools and plumbing ability. It replaced a faulty regulator on my hot water boiler. The price was my main reason for the purchase from this provider.

                                A wonderful little valve. This beats most PRV's on the market for function and price. Has a quick fill lever for boiler systems too! Great valve...

                                            I have had to replace or clean out our feed water regulator (cast steel) every 5 + years due to build up of corrosion - I'm thinking & hoping that this one being all bronze will eliminate that.
