The water pressure from the city was only 70 psi. The PRV was removed and the house was setup to be on an open loop system. Thermal expansion tank is not required on the open loop system.

A new PRV was installed to lower the water pressure to 75 psi, thus creating a closed system. A thermal expansion tank was installed on the new water heater. The main shutoff was also replaced as the old valve did not completely shutoff the water.

Barely enough room to install a thermal expansion tank behind the full port ball valve. You should always replace old valves with brass free fittings.
