      I am about to install a new dishwasher and am not sure if I need to install some sort of water pressure valve on the cold water line to a dishwasher? Are there any other requirments ?

      your gonna run a COLD water line to your dishwasher????
      (hope you bought one of those expensive ones with its own water pre-heating elements!)

      Your house pressure should be fine for installation of a dishwasher as long as you dont live in a high pressure area and your pressure regulator is functioning!

      You can put a water hammer arrestor somewhere on your water system if your worried about the selenoid.

      Here in Australia,

      It is cheaper and more effective to run your dishwasher on the cold service.

      In California we prefer clean dishes.

      Just messin with you bungie…

      I can see your point if your water heater is too far away for it to be of any use…

      but a lot of cheaper dishwashers dont have pre-heaters.
