Pressure Relief Valve

A pressure relief valve (PRelV) is a type of valve used to limit pressure surges within the water main system. A pressure relief valve is designed to open when a preset maximum pressure is reached. These valves are also known as Safety Relief Valves.

For information on choosing type and size of a PRelV, refer to WSA03 2002 Water Supply Code of Australia.
