There are many reasons why there's a bud blast but the most common, in my understanding, is low humidity. Can you give us more info? Humidity, min temp, light levels, etc?

I agree 8 bar (120 psi) is too much for a house water line. Here it is around 3 bar (43 psi).
If something bursts at 8 bar it might be dangerous.

I assume you have a garden...drip systems typically operate at 2 bar...you could have a water tank 2 meter high and get that pressure. A reducing valve it's easier but that's just a thought.
