Works fine!

By Ernie

Comments about Watts 1-1/4" 174A Relief Valve (30lb):

This product works fine as intended. This product replaced a different model valve, that had a slow drip, amounting to a full bucket of water per day. When I called customer service and explained the problem, they identified that I had replaced my original valve with one that was insufficient and that this new relief valve would do the trick. It sure has. I am pleased with the purchase.

Comments about Watts 1-1/4" 174A Relief Valve (30lb):

There is not a lot to say about a relief valve other than is meets requirements or it does not and it works or it does not in this case it does work and it meets the requirements . In this case this valve is just what we needed and it was at a great price.

Works well until spring wears out

By Gaston

Verified Buyer

Comments about Watts 1-1/4" 174A Relief Valve (30lb):

I've noticed that the spring on this product will wear out and it'll start passing water at 25psi, then 20, then 15, etc. The part looks well made and works fine when new but I wish it would last longer than 2 years.

Replacing 20-year-old valve which had begun to fail. This was the perfect fix for my hydronic system and far better price--even with shipping--than I could find locally. Thanks!

Works as it should

By Dan S.

Comments about Watts 1-1/4" 174A Relief Valve (30lb):

Exact replacement for a leaking pressure relief valve on my Weil McLain boiler. Original was over 20 years old! I replaced my expansion tank durring the same service with a recommendation from a professional. Glad I did as I determined my expansion tank had a slow leak as well.

Replaced in the summer so bleeding system was much easier. Suggest a comprehensive boiler check BEFORE heating season.

Have a boiler furnace for heating the home, the pressure relief valve started to leak continuously, needed replacing, so I ordered a new one from Pex. It arrived quickly, installed the same day, and everything works as it should.

  • Q:

    can the 3/4 174a relief valve(30lb.)be installed on any btu/hr. boiler but not to exceed 650,000 btu/hr.?
    Asked on 1/16/2014 by reddog from greenup,il

    1 answer

    • VERIFIED BUYER

      A:

      Yes. That 650kBTU limit is just where the boiler size dictates a larger
      outlet for the Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) connection. In other words, don’t
      put a reducer on your 1-inch PRV connection just so you can save a few bucks
      by using a ¾-inch PRV.

  • Q:

    my current valve (same as pictured) is still leaking at approx 30 psi. I just changed the expansion tank which I believe was bad (was leaking water out of the schrader valve). Are these valves adjustable so that it will not leak, or should I just replace it? Also, can the problem be the Pressure Reducing Valve?
    Asked on 11/10/2010 by Pete from NYC

      A:

      This valve is designed to open up at 30# water pressure. NOT adjustable. Look at the feed valve for your problem. If yours is circulated hot water, it should operate at around 20#. Sounds like the feed valve (fresh water supply to system) is charging your system to at or near water line pressure.

      Answered on 6/25/2012 by Tom from Moorestown, NJ
    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      There is no adjustment on this valve. Your pressure reducing valve should be set around 12-25 PSI.
