No, water pressure is immediate. If you replaced the sink faucet you probably ended up with one of the "low flow" faucets that are being produced to save water. Sometimes they can be taken apart and "encouraged" to let more water through. if the valve had no been used in awile the gasket will stick when you turn it off and back on replace the valve with a quarter turn ball type valve and you wont have this problem again

How does a hydraulic pressure reducing valve work?

A hydraulic pressure reducing valve works by allowing hydraulic fluid to be released. This hydraulic fluid is then chambered separately until it is needed again. The valve is turned either left or right to either build pressure or take pressure away.

If you replaced both cartridges on a shower valve due to very low water pressure and still no water pressure you removed cartridges and turned water on and water pressure is good?

May be build up in the valve itself or the shower head.

I have a doubt in safety air pressure relief valve that is how to evaluate the performance of the pressure relief valve?

Make enquiry's with the manufacturer of the compressor and get the max pressure rating. Then let the pressure in the tank build up to that level. If it does not open get a new valve

Why is not valves in the arteries?

The heart controls arterial blood. It's pumping creates pressure. The last thing you'd need is a sticky or malfunctioning valve in an artery, because pressure would build up behind the stuck valve.

Does the main water supply have to be turned off and the pipes drained before you can turn the screw on the pressure valve to increase the water pressure in house?


What causes leaks in gas hot water heater?

Leaks can be caused by all kinds of things:Sediment in the water heater can cause the pipes and pipe fittings to erode or can build up around the pressure relief valve and cause a leak thereExcessive pressure can build up in the tank, tripping said pressure relief valveDrain valve can loosen and water can leak out from there

What is difference between pressure reducing valve and pressure relief valve?

pressure relief valve relief the excess pressure which is developed in the syatem, while pressure reducing valve reduces the pressure and supply it to the system.

Why does pressure build up in block and force motor oil out the rear seal?

your pcv valve or hose is restricted causing excessive crankcase pressure

Difference between pressure releif valve and pressure reducing valve?

A relief valve is in a system that builds pressure to make sure it doesn't build up too much pressure and burst the tank or line. The water heater has one, an air compressor has one, any thing that builds pressure will have one at some point. Pressure reducing valve regulates how much pressure is available in the line. Water line from the city may have 100 lbs. in it but there is a reducing valve right inside the house so that the pipes in the house only get 40 lbs. in them.

Can you install a blow valve to a non turbo corsa?

You can, but it'd be amazingly pointless. The blow valve is needed on turbo engines to release the pressure that can build up if the driver goes off the throttle quickly and the engine revs drops fast. W/o a turbo you won't get any pressure build-up so there's no use for a blow valve.

Why does the Shut off under sink leak after it is turned off?

If the valve is a multi turn valve, it is because the valve seat is no longer good. Replace the valve. It it is a quarter turn valve, it is because the mechanism that turns the ball is no good and the valve does not turn completely shut. once again, replace the valve.

Does the heater core have a pressure release valve?

no pressure release valve

What is the difference between pressure relief valve and pressure reducing valve?

nothing, its just terminology why A pressure relief valve is a safety device to prevent over pressure in such things as compressor receivers. A pressure reducing valve drops the pressure to the requirements of the user or tool. Such as a demand valve on scuba gear.

What happens when PC valve get stuck on a 97 Mitsubishi gst?

Pressure will build up and eventually it will blow your valve cover gasket, and you are going to have oil all over your engine.

What is the feed check valve of boiler?

The feed check valve of a boiler is on the line coming out of the boiler it is usually to prevent the water from going back in to the boiler its coming out of so it would build up excessive amounts of pressure which will cause the t&p valve to blow temperature and pressure

Is the pressure drop through a globe valve less than through a gate valve?

HECK NO the globe pattern offers the most pressure drop because of friction losses

What is a Pressure regulator valve?

A pressure regulator is a control valve that reduces the input pressure of a fluid to a desired value at its output.

What is high pressure valve?

A pressure valve is usually installed on water systems to prevent excess water pressure from destroying fixtures or other plumbing components. When the pressure exceeds the valve ratings the valve opens and releases water/pressure from the line.

Why does the pressure valve keep opening?

Too much pressure or defective valve.

What is the problem when there is no brake pressure when car is turned on?

The check valve for vacuum to your assist is leaking.Normal operation would keep vacuum in the booster,but when the engine is stopped vacuum drains out and you have no assist. Replace the valve.

What is the difference between a pressure reducing valve and a pressure regulating valve?

Pressure reducing valve reduces the pressure of fluid upto a predetermined pressure in this case downstream pressure will be obviously lower than upstream pressure but in case of pressure regulating valve it will regulate the pressure( either increase or decrease) depending on the requirement of system at that time.

Can a drity PCV valve cause misfire?

No, the only thing a dirty PCV valve will cause is a build-up of gas pressure inside the engine which make seals and gaskets fail.

What is wrong with a compressor that will only air up to 60 psi and not shut off?

I had the same problem but the compressor would shut down from over heating. It turned out to be the pressure relief valve leaking. Listen for leaks. I ordered a new valve but never installed it because it turned out that mine was just stuck. Once I freed it, it has worked fine since. Also : The compressor is not shutting off because it is not reaching the shut off pressure. Check for air leaks. If it will not develope more than 60 psi, it may be worn out.
