P. C. Water Pressure Problem
Posted in the Valley Forum
#1 Apr 24, 2013
Anyone having problems with water heater pressure relief valves (Pop-Off Valves) or other plumbing problems that may be due to extreme water pressure from the Phenix/Smiths water system please post the nature of you problem, when you noticed the problem and the general location within the city or county! It seems that people are reporting water pressure ranging from 120 to 190 pounds of water pressure which is causing lots of problems in the north phenix city area along summerville road. Some are reporting water damage to homes because of over pressure on plumbing fitting and plumbing pipes!
Plumbers dont come cheep so if the city has cost you money for repairs by all means make them pay for the repairs!

We are also off North Summerville Road, but what we have experienced is excessive water bills twice in the last 3 years. During the periods of excessive use, the usage has been listed at 280 gal/hr - on the order of a garden hose running full force. One time for about 8-9 hrs and another time for about 6-7 days! We have no evidence of water running on the ground, a washer valve being stuck, or even a toilet running, yet the meter said that much water passed through. Anyone else experience anything similar? If so, please post.
