Wonder what is the acceptable water pressure in the pipes that deliver water to your homes? Understand that overpressure can damage the piping system or even some water filtration systems. Sometime back, I had to seal up the water pipes that burst, partly because the old GI pipes begin to give way due to internal rust over the years. And more recently, I was told that the pipes in my house is most probably leaking (or had bursted). Overpressure plus leaky/rusty GI pipes = impending trouble?

Looks like I have to replace the existing piping and protect it from future disaster again. Any good recommendation appreciated.
