What is difference between pressure and flow?
Flow is a measure of air output in terms of volume per unit of time. Pressure is the measure of force applied on an area. The common units for pressure are pounds per square inch (PSI), Pascals (Newtons per square metre), etc.
How can I increase water flow in my house?
Now, if the gauge shows that the entire house has low water pressure, then try adjusting the pressure-reducing valve.Look on the main supply pipe near your water meter for a conical valve that has a bolt sticking out of the cone.To raise pressure, turn the bolt clockwise after loosening its locknut.
Does an orifice reduce flow?
Orifice plates are also used to reduce pressure or restrict flow, in which case they are often called restriction plates.
How do I know my orifice size?
If you don’t know what size that tiny hole is, spend $4 on a small drill bit set and use the shank end (the opposite end from the cutting end) as a gauge pin. The largest one that will fit in the hole is your orifice size.
