    GET A PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE INSTALLED JUST PAST WATER METER.

    If you a water pressure regulator for the main line coming into your house, you should be able to adjust the water pressure. 110 PSI sounds pretty high.

    Sounds like you need to add a pressure tank to your set up.

    Danny and Ana are correct. I have never heard of a pressure tank. There is an expansion tank on a water heater, but that has nothing to do with reducing your water pressure. The pressure regulator is inside your house beside the meter on the incoming pipe.

    We just had this done; exactly what Danny said.
