In Response To: heat (tony)

hi. I had the same problem, and it is definitely due to air in the line.A solid such as water cannot be compressed but air can be.When you opened that line and installed your new radiator you left air in the line that the water pressure is compressing to the point it opens your relief valve.If this problem started when you put in the radiator, then the problem lies there.If there is a bleeder on the radiator then bleed the line of all the air. If not then Go to the highest pipe point and install a simple bleeder into the line, and bleed it of all the air. That should fix it.

P.S. changing from half inch pipe to three quarter pipe will not change the pressure.The pressure is determined by your water supplier.Good luck----jerry
