Keep the gumment out of my kitchen!
Reader comment on: Compliant Faucets
Submitted by Andrew Terhune (United States), Dec 16, 2015 09:31
I am replacing plumbing fixtures in a home where water is fed by gravity from a natural spring. But it's only 25psi, and there's no way so far discovered to manipulate gravity to increase the pressure. Because the EPA's regs specify that fixtures use no more than 2 gallons/minute at 60 psi, the major manufacturers have told me that their fixtures are all designed to work well at 60psi; at 25psi you effectively get a trickle. The alternatives are: spend $1500 (and use electricity) for a booster pump, or be content with a trickle.
I find it interesting that many of the same people who rant against the government interfering in our bedrooms are perfectly content to let it interfere in our kitchens and bathrooms. Why not be consistent and get it our of our homes?
