High Water Pressure

I live in a house built in 2002 (No septic tank).I have been hearing strange sounds in the pipes any time water is running through any part of the house for the last few months.I have also had master bathroom toilet block up twice over the same period of time. Now I have water soaked on part of my lawn outside my master bedroom, possibly due to some leak.I have had a couple of sprinkler heads break due to high water pressure (more than 110psi), according to a repairman for the sprinkler system. Few of my neighbors have had similar problems. Can high water pressure cause all of this?Can pressure regulator solve all of these problems?Thanks.

Yes and yes.
The water pressure in your home should not be above 60 psi or it can cause problems. Your irrigation system should be able to handle higher pressure, but check the manufacturer's recommendation for pressure on that system.
You need to install an adjustable Pressure Reducing Valve after your meter to control this excessive 110 psi water pressure.
Good Luck!
