    Really? 5 bar is good? I know anything after the PRV would be less than 4 but 2 seems a bit too low to me?

    doing?

    Not sure, I think its static, I take the valve and put it on the one tap, open the tap to test the pressure, then I go to the other tap clip it on and open the tap and test the pressure and that's how I got 5 on one and 2 on the other.

    A 400 kpa kwikot geyser will give you between 270 and 320 kpa.
    A static test is when no water is used on the downside . A dynamic is when you have another tap open somewhere.Theres a difference between flow and pressure.
