The pumps have two safeguards to prevent overpressurization:
An external pressure release valve can be opened to vent pressure manually before removing the pump from a container.
As an additional safeguard, an internal pressure relief valve automatically opens if container pressure exceeds 8 psi.
The pump is repairable
Do not throw this pump away. Properly serviced, the pump will last for years. See trouble shooting guide for common problems. O-ring replacement kits and other parts are available from your dealer should you need them.
