        Comments about Watts 3/4" LF223 Lead Free High Capacity Pressure Valve:

        This unit regulates the water pressure feed to our motorhome. Previous regulators reduced the flow to a trickle but this one provides excellent flow while regulating the pressure to my new setting of 40 psi. It is a bit bulky and heavy for this use. We are happy to put up with the size and weight for this flow.

              Comments about Watts 3/4" LF223 Lead Free High Capacity Pressure Valve:

              Put in a lawn sprinkler system but wasnt getting the flow needed. I had to open the previous prv wide open to get my sprinklers to work but was putting it at pressure above 100psi. With this new prv I am able to set it at 60psi and get all the flow I need for the sprinklers to work.
              Wish it had a mesh filter screen built into the body. Had to buy that separately and it took up more piping space that I didnt have.
