Ensuring Practical, Safe Working Water Pressure:
Municipal and private water companies use pumps & pumping stations to boost water pressure in the supply mains. This enables adequate water supply for fire-fighting and for high-rise buildings to overcome the loss of pressure as elevation increases. These pumps & pumping stations also maintain water supply to water towers and supply tanks. Pressure in water supply mains can exceed 200psi.
Most plumbing codes require water pressure reducing valves on domestic systems where the municipal water main’s pressure exceeds 80psi.
Higher pressures could rupture pipes, damage fixtures and injure the people using them.
Ever heard it said: “The cheap comes out expensive in the end?”
This especially applies in the plumbing trade!
The image below is of two 1.5″ tubular slip nuts, I haven’t found a house yet without one. They make the seal under your sinks to the drain pipes.
(Right) is a cheap plastic one, notice the huge crack.
This resulted in a damaged wood cabinet, damaged wood floors, stinky, gross drain water all over the place & an unexpected service call from the plumber.
(Left) is a solid metal one.
Note: Sutherland Plumbing only uses the higher quality metal ones!
Had the original plumber invested about .50 cents more – all of this would have been avoided!

Here’s another 5-Star Yelp Review from one of our valued customers here in Portland!
December 10th 2017
After reviewing several bids and consulting Yelp and Angie’s List for reviews, we hired Sutherland Plumbing to complete our PRV and water heater replacement and could not be happier with that decision.
After our initial call to Sutherland Plumbing on a Saturday morning, Ti Sutherland – the owner, reached out personally that same day to check-in and schedule a time to have someone come to our home within 48 hours to take a look at our water heater and the issues we were experiencing. John and Cameron were the team that came out Monday morning. They were able to quickly diagnose the issue, get to work on the PRV, and prepare a bid for the water heater.
A week later they returned to do the removal of our old water heater and install the new one and I cannot say enough about their work! They are probably two of the most professional, courteous, hard-working individuals I have come across in any line of work or industry, and we will never use any other plumbing service again.
To add to our satisfaction, John asked if there was anything else in the house we needed them to take a look at, and he fixed our low pressure faucets that had not been supplying hot water in over a year and even greased the tracks of our garage door! To finish it all out, the Sutherland Plumbing owners sent us a hand-signed card thanking us for our business that arrived just a few days after completing the job.
This company not only knows what they are doing on the technical plumbing side, but they also provide next-level customer service on top of it all. You will not find a better plumbing company in the Portland metro area and we give Sutherland Plumbing our highest recommendation!
