Yes. It should be srping loaded to remain closed. Air should not leak out of it unless you pull on the vale ring to deliberately release air. Check the air is not espacing at any of the joints around the relief cutoff valve. You can spray water or a mild soapy solution on all the air connections and if one is leaking it will cause the solution to bubble.

Seal all threads with teflon thread sealing tape.

Leaking around Pressure Switch. Ordered & replaced switch but still leaking


Some pressure switches have a valve that reliefs the compressor head pressure when the motor stops and closes the head pressure relief valve when the motor runs.
There is a check valve that keeps air pressure from coming back to the compressor head and the relief valve.
I think the check valve is leaking tank pressure to the relief valve and compressor head.
The check valve is where the pressure switch mounts on to and it mounts threaded on to the compressor tank.
Try replacing the check valve

Why is water leaking continually from relief valve


The valve probably has a bad washer. You can replace the valve easily

Unable to locate what I think is the pressure relief valve located under the on/off box. looks like a small needle valve but leaks air constantly. any ideas?


If it leaks constantly until the tank is empty or very low, the problem is most likely a leaking check valve. The pressure relief valves mission is to empty the pressure line between the chech valve and the sylingers to facilitate unloaded restart of the motor. The check valve is usually mounted directly on the tank an connected to the large copper tube from the sylinders as well as the relief valve through a smaller and thinner tube (often nylon). Empty the tank, unplug the power and open the unscrew the cap of the check valve and retreive the spring and the valve disk and inspect for damages, foreign objects or replace if needed. Refit it and test run the compressor. If your problem is that the relief valve leaks only while compressor is running and just after it stops, the problem is likely to be the relief valve itself. This is usually an integrated and rather delicate part of the pressostat (pressure, on off switch box) and you may need to replace it as a unit unless you can clean it by pressurized air or gently dismantle it for inspection and cleaning or removing foreign objects or dirt.

Pressure releif valve leaking


Hot water pressure relief valves serve two functions. The first is to remove high-pressure water from the hot water tank. The second function is to act as a high temperature valve to remove water that exceeds a predetermined point for the valve. Both of these relief settings are preset at the valve factory. Many pressure relief valves will come with a metal tag that identifies these release points. If you're attempting to remove the hot water heater pressure relief valve, pay careful attention to ensure that you replace with the correct valve.

Your hot water heater has a pressure relief valve safety mechanism. When pressure inside the water tank exceeds certain limitations, the valve opens up to allow the pressure to be released. A faulty pressure relief valve will not release excess pressure, which could cause extensive damage to your home. You should test the hot water heater pressure relief valve once every six months to ensure proper operation. If the pressure relief valve fails the test, replace the valve with a new one immediately

Locate the pressure relief valve on your hot water heater. The pressure relief valve has a lever handle on top with a drain pipe attached to it. The pressure relief valve is most often on the side of the water tank toward the top. Newer models of hot water heaters have the pressure relief valve on top of the water tank.

  • Inspect the area around the pressure relief valve for signs of leaking water. If there is leaking water near the relief valve connection, replace the relief valve. If no leaking is evident, proceed with testing the pressure valve.

    Examine the area below the pressure relief valve drain pipe. Most water heater closets either have a drain in the floor below the pipe or the pipe is inserted into another pipe to direct the water out of the home. If the end of your drain pipe is not in another pipe or there is no drain in the floor, place a bucket under the drain pipe to catch water when you test the pressure relief valve.

  • 4

    Pull the lever handle on the top of the pressure relief valve up with your fingers. A working lever will lift up without difficulty.You should begin to hear water going through the drain pipe. Slowly release the lever to shut off the pressure relief valve. The pressure relief valve is good. If you did not hear water running through the drain pipe, lower the lever on the pressure relief valve and replace the valve. If the lever is difficult to raise, do not force the lever. Replace the pressure relief valve.


  • Now with all that said if you have a closed loop water supply system and you have a pressure vessal/expantion tank it may have gone bad and is making the TP valve leak. you can call your water provider to see if you have closed loop system.

    The motor runs continuously and the pressure is low. What are the possible causes for this?


    You haven't given any model number information, but typically on any air compressor if it won't build pressure, either you have a leak in your piping, tank, hose or the compressor cannot move the required cfm of air. Could be a valve problem or piston, relief valve? Do you hear any air leaking. There are som many different models from cheap throw away compressors to thousands of dollar models.

    WILL NOT BUILD UP AIR PRESSURE PAST 20 LBS.


    Check to see if air is leaking past 'pressure relief' valve. It's probably leaking and that's where all the air is going.

    COMPRESSOR RUNS, FILLS TANK, AND THEN LEAKS OFF ALL THE PRESSURE. WHAT IS GOING ON?


    Is the air "leaking" from the pressure relief valve? If so it is either faulty or it is doing what is supposed to do. The pressure relief valve is there in case the pressure switch fails.The tank could blow up if the pressure switch fails, so the pressure relief valve is there as a secondary measure to insure the tank does not receive too much air pressure. Assuming your gauge is operating properly, watch the gauge to see if it reaches the maximum pressure (check your manual to find the maximum PSI) or if it goes over the maximum pressure. If it goes over the maximum pressure then replace the pressure switch. If it the motor stops at the maximum pressure, replace the pressure relief valve.

    Relief valve constantly releasing water.


    lower your thermostats a bit. If your temperature is set to the hottest setting, then chances are no relief valve will do
