Why weren't these tips posted before ????
Drop the temp and pressure ???? No, I wanted to get a bath with hot water and then attempt to hold my thumb over the hole until that got too hot so I removed my thumb.... you see where this is going...............
Never thought about the little valve.
I think I will be doing that to each vent this summer when I do the rebuild.
Great great advice. That is why I love this forum so much.
