Hydrostatic Pressure Relief Valves

Performance Under Pressure

Hydrostatic pressure relief valves ensure that concrete tanks don’t float from the excess groundwater beneath them. Floating tanks can lead to serious cracks and other major issues. The increase over hydrostatic pressure that occurs from rising water tables triggers the opening of the pressure relief valve, allowing water to enter the tank and preventing it from floating.
