    Geyser 200kpa

    Anyone know if I can replace a 400kPa geyser with a 200kPa geyser provided I change the pressure regulating valve?
    thanks for your input!

    Yes you can, as long as the pressure valve matches the maximun cylinder pressure. You might notice a difference in shower pressure but I doubt it will be a problem.

    according to what i know, if the pressure valve has a lower kpa rating than the geyser its still OK
    but the reverse is not advisable

    safest would be to have both pressure valve & geyser with same kpa rating.
    A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
