Loosen the stem retaining nut with an adjustable wench. Open a faucet or two and let the water run while adjusting the pressure regulator. Turn the valve's stem counterclockwise to increase the pressure and clockwise to decease. Tighten the retaining nut when you are satisfied with the water pressure.

    I went to the website of the pressure regulator valve in my home to find out how to do it right and their instructions said to loosen the stem retaining nut and turn the valve stem clockwise to increase the pressure and counterclockwise to decrease the pressure. I'm not saying you're wrong, I am merely saying that the direction to turn the valve stem may vary based on the model.

What regulator does a empire model 115 15000 btu take?


The regulator on the heater probably is not but is probably a device to prevent the heater being used unless the gas pressure is high enough and also serves to prevent air entering the gas line and also serves to arrest flashbacks.

The standard propane low pressure regulator is 14" water gauge but the heater might need a high pressure regulator. The best way to decide which type of high pressure regulator to use, because there are several, is to use an adjustable regulator.

After installing the adjustable regulator the pressure is increased until gas can be heard to be flowing and the heater lit. The regulator should then be adjusted to produce a clean flame of the correct length and then the regulator adjustment locknut should be tightened.

If the heater is to be used indoors it is important to ensure there is plenty of ventilation and the emissions are checked by a gas engineer.

Blew off regulator knob


Parts can be ordered form www.toolpartsdirect.com. Air regulator should be adjusted with very little air pressure in the system. If you are adjusting the regulator with full tank pressure, you are overworking the plastic parts within. Over time, water will rust parts inside of the regulator. I would order the complete regulator. You could also remove the regulator part of the manafold and use full pressure to the quick connects. If you need to regulate the air pressure down a bit, purchase a universal regulator and install quick connect fittings. Male fitting to air in and female fitting to discharge port. Install this regulator to one of the quick connect fitting on the a/c. Good luck

How do you adjust the pressure on a watts regulator to increase the flow of water?


Turn it clockwise to increase pressure on a watt's pressure relief valve. You will have to gradually adjust and check pressure till you get it to desired pressure. You don't want to exceed safe pressure due to damaging water lines or fixtures.

How do I set my water pressure regulator.


On the top of the regulator is a stem/threaded rod with two nuts on it.

Loosen the bottom nut and that will allow you to turn the stem, which adjusts the pressure.

clockwise usually increases pressue, although I have encountered PRV's (Pressure Reducing Valve) that decreases pressure with a clockwise turn.

When A PRV starts malfuntioning, they often cannot be adjusted and need to be replaced or rebuilt.

Switching from natural to lp gas


Hi, The gas jet is too large and the gas valve needs adapted for lp gas. Lp gas has more pressure so the jets are smaller. Any appliance parts store should have the kit needed to adapt the gas valve along with the jet. The valve pressure will also need to be adjusted using a cheap water column gage also available at the appliance parts store. Check with them on what the pressure needs to be in your area. If the regulator is part of the lp it should be set right. If it is part of the fryer, set up for natural gas, and there is no lp regulator, it will need to be adjusted and or replaced with an lp regulator. Gas companies are usually very helpful with such things because they are concerned about gas safety. Good luck.
