I guess I'm wrong but I was always under the impression that the small air pocket was just above the relief valve.

I think some one needs to school me cause I have been flipping my valve for years to bleed all air out of tank and have never had it leak afterwards.
I just filled mine up last night till I had a steady stream with pump on and then shut it.
Its not leaking yet.
I do the same for city water but I open valve before turning on.

I have heard this so many times from so many people that I have never once questioned it. My relief valve does not leak; ever. I typically just pop the lever until water comes out and I am done. Releasing the lever stops the water from coming out.

What threw me was the valve leaking after a new one was installed.

I looked up the manual for my Suburban HWH and think you guys are on the right track with the air bubble.

I learn something new everyday...

I think there might have been some debris of some sort still present that might have gotten into the new one also.

Problem Solved!!!
I was the pump...when I had disassembled the pressure pump and then re-assembled I put all five screws in on the pressure switch side of the pump not knowing that the middle bolt is the pressure adjustment. Since I had screwed it all the way in the little diaphram on the inside could not actually shut off power to the pump, so the pump kept pumping and pumping till it could not physically pump anymore, which was more than the relief valve could hold.
When I figured out was happening I backed out that middle pressure bolt and VOILA the pump shut off and relief valve is acting normal. Only thing left to figure out is how far to have that pressure bolt in.
Thanks for everyone's help!!!

Brad
