it is not a expansion tank. that seems to be the fad here lately it is your PRV. was your prv installed so you can observe the pressure on both sides of it ? incoming will be high and out will be the low replace the prv,,,this time, buy a WATTS prv and you wont have to change it again in 8 years
Quote: If I turn the hot water tank off and use hot water afterwards the pressure remains at 50. I've searched many forums and the consensus seems to be to install an expansion tank. My issue with this is I have never had this problem before it just started happening. You need the expansion tank IMO . The PRV may or may not have a check valve or the city may have installed a new meter w/ check valve preventing the thermal expansion event from returning to municipals water.
There is no where to connect before the PRV to check the pressure. I do not have the issue with the hot water tank turned off so how can that be the PRV when it's happening due to thermal expansion? Does the PRV allow pressure above it's setpoint to push back out to city water?
