A pressure reducing valve in Singapore is a regulating valve that maintains the exit pressure of a fluid at a specific lower level than the incoming pressure. Its purposes are to reduce the fluid pressure, as well as to dynamically control the flow rate that varies because of load deviations. Our plumbers in Singapore can provide further details on what a pressure reducing valve consists of.
Selecting the right pressure reducing valve in Singapore
When choosing the appropriate pressure reducing valve in Singapore, there are different aspects to be taken into account, such as:
• Type and size of the pipe;
• The maximum pressure of supply (depending on the municipality - a plumber in Singapore can provide more information in this regard);

• Water demand, in gallons per minute (GPM) or liters per minute (LPM).
When selecting a pressure reducing valve in Singapore, the size of the valve is not the only determining aspect. A plumber in Singapore recommends you to make sure you read the valve instructions in order to ensure it can meet your specific needs.
