Exercising The Relief Valve

There are several ways you can exercise the relief valve on 2521 and
2531. First, you would set the relief valve to what ever pressure you
would like, lets say 120 psi. The first way to test the valve would be to
simply throttle up past the set pressure of 120 psi. and wait for the
valve to confirm its opened. The next way to do it would be to have
the tank fill valve open, which should be open when you are setting
the relief valve, and close it quickly. The relief valve should open and
close as you open and close the tank fill. Rotating the pilot valve
clockwise and counterclockwise as the valve opens is the third way.
And the final way to do it, and only 2521 or with any Waterous relief
valve, you can use the "on-off" switch back and forth to exercise the
valve.

Board: Firefighters Made Errors in Fighting Deadly Weston Fire
....."We know there was a delay of 5 minutes of pressurized water to the fire line at the side
door, which also delayed entry into the building. The cause of delay was an incorrect
pumping procedure," said Kenny Clemens, president of the West Platte Fire Board. The
board asked the Riverside, Missouri, Fire Captain Dave Johnson to review the video to
study the department's procedures......

"The firefighter that was assigned the pumping the fire was not 100 percent familiar with
the apparatus, and the error occurred," said Capt. Johnson, who says that by his
assessment, it took over eight minutes for water to be put on the fire.
