    Your right on the money! I don’t belive the house has a PRV either. I called the city to ask where they checked the water pressure in the street at. They told me at the fire hydrant, which is 150 feet or more away from the meter. I told him I suspected a broken feed pipe from the cities water main to my meter. He argued because there was no sign of water surfacing in the area. After questioning my diagnosis, he decided to take another look. The cities pipe WAS broken! And so was the storm drain pipe. The water simply ran under the road to the collapsed storm drain pipe. They dug it up and repaired it, now I have 61PSI static pressure at the house. This has been going on for almost a year!
    Thanks for everyone who took their time to reply.
