PRV releasing

Howdy Kev... what's the pressure in the tank when the PRV lets go?

If it's lower than the cut out pressure of your compressor, replace the PRV.

If it blows since the air pressure in the tank is higher than the normal cut out pressure, it's likely your pressure switch.

If the pressure is so high your PRV is letting go, that's dangerous. Get it fixed fast.
