I use the Watts regulator from RV Water Filter Store: Standard Filter Canisters for Whole RV and regulate at 50 psi.

I have an older style with dual gauges, pressure in and pressure out.

I'm having trouble figuring out if I can use it. It seems much more stout than the Valterra version, but it says "Gauged version adjusts from 0 to 60 lbs. These valves are especially designed for units with self-contained water supply tanks"

????
I would be a bit leary of that. I have not seen a Watts regulator in that configuration before and the specs do not mention the flow rate. There are no reviews either.

I think you would be better off with a regulator from a reputable company that supports the RVing industry.

So it appears it is a real Watts regulator but they do not even list flow rate on their site. It is listed under their "small capacity" section. They do list the following :

Series LFH560 Mini Water Pressure Reducing Valves are designed to reduce incoming water pressure to a sensible level to protect plumbing system components and reduce water consumption. This series is ideal where a small economical package is required such as on special industrial process applications, miscellaneous plumbing applications and OEM equipment. Series LFH560 are suitable for water supply pressures up to 300psi(21 bar). The LFH560 features Lead Free* construction to comply with Lead Free* installation requirements.


LFH560 Lead Free* Mini Brass Water Pressure Regulators with Hose Connections, Water Pressure Reducing Valves - Small Capacity, Water Safety & Flow Control - Watts

Wow those other regulators get a lot more flow through them.

Watts New Lead Free Adjustable 263A-LF Regulator, but with stainless steel exterior parts kit listed below installed, 2" diameter 0-160 gauge, 4-4.5 gpm

Looks like that one is a winner.

This regulator IS on the site you reference and the specs ARE there.

Mine is more like this, Shop Watts 3/4-in Brass Female In-Line Water Pressure Valve at Lowes.com
except an older model.
I adapted it to fit on a water hose with brass fittings.

Are you guys concerned with lead-free regulators? RV hoses safe for drinking are lead-free, so shouldn't the regulator be the same?
