      In the USA standard water pressure can range from 35 – 80 psi, less then 35 a booster pump could be needed more the 80 a pressure reducing valve is required.

      Also proper water volume is needed for proper operation of the plumbing system, in the average home we need 12 – 15 gallons per mintute.

      You can have 100psi in a 1/4″ pipe and it will be enough to operate all the plumbing in a modern house because there is not enough volume.

      Don’t know about the U.K. requirements.
