Aqua Go Safety relief valve leak

The Aqua Go safety relief valve worked fine last winter, but during de-winterization it won't stop leaking.

-Water pressure is less than 65 psi
-I flushed the valve, ran water through it for a few seconds several times
-I turned the valve lever many times to try to re-seat the valve

No joy. Any other things I may try before replacement?

I just talked to Truma, they said there is no fix for the safety relief valve. The entire unit has to be replaced

Not replaceable. So I would call Truma first. The last one I had this on...I can't remember what they did, but it stopped the leaking. In that case, I think it was pressure. I think 65 is still high for the Truma.

Water pressure is below 65 psi. It worked fine in December with the same pressure reducer on the same faucet.

But Iíll give it a try with just pump pressure.

I used Trumas service center search on their web site, found lots of dealers in Germany. Still looking!

Yup, that was me with leaking relief valve & it was the water pressure. I spoke with Truma rep, they were very helpful got me in touch with repair in my area (NM at the time). Luckily it stopped leaking when a pressure reducer was place in line. Good luck with yours, you could try putting a different reducer in line...just to see.

If it was mine I would try back flushing it with it open with some white vinegar (it is cheap, and I am cheap).
Use a plastic bag tied around it as a funnel to hold the vinegar in place long enough for it to work.
It may just be a build-up of calcium carbonate (Lime) from hot, hard water.

A lot of the time, you can just flip it open and closed a few times with water pressure present and it will dislodge any deposits on the seat.

I think its high also. I think on my house I have my pressure switch set on 30 on the bottom and 50 on the top. Cant remember but I know its well below 65..

I think everyone's thoughts on pressure are right. I tried the system with just water pump pressure and the pressure relief valve seemed to hold. I read in the Aqua-Go literature that 65 psi was the high limit.

Odd that my 65 psi pressure reducer worked just fine in January. It's advertised for 65 psi, but it is also 4 years old. Seems like I read somewhere that they do wear out & won't hold pressure accurately after a few years.

So, I ordered a Camco pressure reducer that says it regulates 40-50 psi. It arrives tomorrow & then we're off for a week in the Smokies

One aside: I talked to a Truma tech & he told me they were dropping the Watts regulator and going with a European brand that can be changed out.

Thanks for everyone's ideas, see ya'll at Anchor Down!

Happy camping.

Dave
