    We don't really know.

    The original post mentioned a ruptured tank, and alluded to a tall installation with the "vertical lift" comment.

    Why not check the prv and be sure? You're already there with a wrench in your hand.

    It's basically the same thing. You have to know your static fill pressure befroe you can charge your tank.
