    Thats enough to piss a fella off. After installing a Boiler today, it was poppin the relief after shutting down. No I didnt think to check it at first, took me a good hour. Brand new Extrol 30 with 40 psi instead of 12. I guess from now on Ill check the new ones.


    You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel...

    A therm-x-trol charge snuck in.

    Blow it down, move on, put an air gauge on every new tank before you put it on the system...

    A few years ago I kept finding them with about 5 psi.
    I started checking them all after the relief valve blew on the first underinflated one.
    They've been right on after a few bad ones back then.

    Sounds like you got a X-tank for a water well, not a boiler. Supply house may have grabbed the wrong box. Need to make sure they give you the correct tank and as oil lp man said- verify pressure before turning into system. You're right, it does pi$$ a guy off when that happens.
    Don't confuse me with facts, my mind is already made up.
