I bought the fancy regulator too. In hindsight I dry camp 95% of the time. As my home water pressure is low, I'm still, nearly a year later. waiting to put the thing to use...

Go figure....

I started out with the Watts H560, but after a few months changed to the Watts 263A. The 560 worked fine, but the 263A has double the flow rate. I got the oil filled gauge on the 263A after having a gauge failure on the 560. I fulltime so the extra cost doesn't bother me a bit.

We've traveled throughout the U.S. and Eastern half of Canada. The only time we ran across high water pressure was out West. And even then the campground warned us to use a pressure regulator. Regulators do NOT increase the flow of water. They only regulate the pressure so that it won't exceed a preset PSI.
In regard to water filters we found this style works best with a carbon cartridge element. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...r-filter/12874 with this ground mounting bracket:

Happy trails,

Order online and have it shipped to the store free, or for another $10, you can have it shipped to your house. I realize that it's still pretty expensive, but if you camp a lot and your shower pressure isn't very good [like mine] it's worth the added expense. Menards part # is 0355020. All brass with an easy adjustment from 40 to 60 psi., hose fittings, and an easy to read gauge for dummies like me. Just a thought. Terry
Terry,
What PSI do you usually have it set at?

I set mine between 50-55psi.

The one I've been using [the walmart camco brand] is preset at 40 to 50 psi. More like 40. I just got the Watts yesterday and it was preset at 40psi. I will adjust it up to 55psi max, the same as my sureflo pump pumps. Did i just type that? Anyway, a little disappointed with the Watts as it contains .25% lead, and no where on their website, or Menards did it say that before I ordered it. I wonder if they all contain lead. I'll have to research that. Bob's right, regulators don't increase water flow, they just squeeze it a little. lol

I bought my Watts 263A all SS construction about 14 years ago, along with 3 rebuild kits. Transfered it from MH to MH, still working fine. Disassembled it a few times to clean it, about 5 years ago I added an ON-THE-GO water softner and haven't had to clean it since. I always set the pressure at or slightly above my pump's maximum psi rating.

We've been using the fairly cheap Camco pressure regulator like http://www.amazon.com/Camco-40052-Br...N%3DB003870V24. The Camco regulator sometimes squeals and clicks when we are using water. Does a quality regulator make similar noises?

Has anyone used a Valterra adjustable brass regulator with gauge ?
