yes u have to have a expansion tank dont matter what county or state when a BPF...they did this bc your city or county must have upgraded their water supply system which may cause higher water pressure and so had to do that for your house just in case in philly these are required and should be at 60 lb of pressure for water

It is widely known on the interwebz that water expands as it travels through steel pipe. Steel expansion tanks are only required when water is delivered via steel pipe.

The capacity of the tank shall be one U.S. Gallon per foot of steel pipe through which the water travels.
