Hi George,

The point of putting the pressure reg after the filters is to improve the flow thru the filters with increased pressure. The idea wasn't originally ours, we read here on IRV2 a couple of years ago of someone else doing that to improve pressure in the coach. Our pressure reg is a Watt house regulator and can be seen on our website.

Now, perhaps I wasn't as detailed as I should have been when making that statement. It is important to have a high pressure hose and that your connections before the regulator be able to "take the pressure". 200 PSI hoses can be gotten at most larger RV rallies.

Now having said that, there are a couple of places where we do use a small reg at the faucet. One place is a park in Newcastle OK that has near 200 psi and another in New Mexico comes to mind. However other than those odd occasions, we do not use one at the faucet. Let common sense be your guide.

The problem is not presure it is flow. The first thing you have to see if you have a built in presure reg. and if you do you have to remove it because these things are very restrictive. Then go to the hardware store and get a whole house reg. and fittings to put it in line with your hose. I put mine at the fauset to protect the hose and have it set at 55#
