If you were to look at Flagstaff from a hot air balloon you would see just how many hills there are around town. Putting a house on the top of a hill does not stop the water department from bringing water to your neighborhood, but it does have a side effect for everyone else...high water pressure. You might think that high water pressure is a good thing, but it can cause a lot of problems. Like running out of hot water too fast, leaking faucets, running toilets, water splashing on the bathroom mirror when you turn on the faucet and even water pipes that just exploded at the worst time.
It is easy to check water pressure yourself. You can buy a test gauge similar to mine at the hardware store for about 10 dollars. Sometime the water company will come and check if for you but do not expect them the fix the problem. The Flagstaff Water Department only supplies water and rarely is it ever supplied at a safe pressure. We help people all solve all kinds of water pressure problems.
