Is Your Air Release Valve Seat Defective?
Remove the bellows assembly and using a flashlight, look inside the air valve housing. If it is dirty, take a damp cotton swab and clean the seat.
Then, inspect the air release valve seat for wear & tear. If it is cracked, torn or chipped, it will need to be replaced
This can be a very difficult procedure. The Air Release Valve Seat can be difficult to install if you have the factory original Air Valve housing. When Pelton Crane made these housings, they included a little lip inside the housing to hold the air valve release seat in place.
And that lip is what makes the procedure so difficult. It gets in the way of installing the new seat. It will take some patience to complete this repair.
But, we have Good News. The lip has been removed on the replacement Bellows Air Valve Housings we offer here. So if you are short on patience and/or time......just replace the entire housing with the right one for your unit. It comes With The Bellows Air Release Valve Seat Already Installed and Subsequent Replacemetn is a Breeze!
