The range of normal residential water pressure is from 30 to 80 psi. Ideally, the pressure should be set between 45 and 60 pounds in most residential plumbing systems.If the pressure rises too high particularly above 80 psi, plumbing fixtures and appliances (primarily water heaters) could be damaged or leak excessively.

House water pressure should be around 50-60 psi.

For normal usage, no, not necessary. Higher pressure puts added strain on fixture water piping.
