We have recently rented a house and it has normal taps fitte, and a normal overhead water tank, but the water pressure is very high. The water comes out with so much pressure, that if I am trying to rinse anything it makes water spray everywhere. What could be the reason?
Its a normal plastic 500 lt overhead tank, and it doesn't have a cap to close its top. It is not sealed and pressurized. There are no pressure regulators, and there is no water heater in the system. It's just a fill and use kind of tank.
For water flow, a 1.5 in. pipe is fitted to its bottom. There is a check valve, and its turned full open. The tank is fitted on the 2nd floor (25ft above ground level). We fill the tank with bore \ well water with the help of an electric pump. When we open any tap, water pressure is very high.
What could be the reason?
