Enclave Potential Plumbing Issues

We've observed several houses where there is a slow, gradual leak at the backflow preventer.  The cause is a deteriorating shutoff valve (located in the basement of your house).  We recommend that you have a plumber check the valve; it likely needs to be replaced before it fails completely.  A failing valve could cause significant water damage, especially if it goes unnoticed for a while.

In the course of repairing one valve, an owner reported that his pressure regulator was also defective and needed to be replaced.  Denver Water supplies a great deal of pressure to the houses in the Enclave.  Most were fitted with pressure regulators several years ago.  While you have the valve work done, you should have the regulator checked as well.  Too-high pressure could cause damage to appliances and plumbing equipment.

Here is the list of addresses we've noted the dripping:
