How to Install a 180 Thermal Relief Valve on Truckmount

While carpet cleaning truckmount installation for a 180 thermal relief valve isn’t rocket science, it does require a keen eye and a steady hand. So, let's break it down step-by-step.

Step 1: Turn Off The Truckmount

Before you even think about touching that valve, ensure your truckmount is completely turned off. Disconnect it from any power source and let it cool down for at least 30 minutes. This ensures you won't accidentally turn it on or get burned while working.

Step 2: Locate The Installation Point

The next step is to find the optimal point for installing your 180 thermal relief valve. Typically, this will be near the pump or heat exchanger. Look for a threaded port that matches the size of your valve. If you're unsure, consult your truckmount's manual or reach out to the manufacturer.

Step 3: Prepare The Valve

Before you attach anything, grab your Teflon tape. Wrap it around the threads of the valve, ensuring you cover all exposed areas. This is crucial for a leak-free installation. The Teflon tape acts as a sealant, preventing any water or air from escaping.

Step 4: Attach The Valve

Now, it's time to attach the valve. Put on your safety goggles and gloves, and grab your adjustable wrench. Carefully align the valve with the threaded port you identified earlier. 

Start by hand-tightening it to make sure the threads catch correctly. Once it's in place, use the adjustable wrench to tighten it further. But be cautious—overtightening can strip the threads or even crack the valve. Gently does it.

Step 5: Test The Installation

After installation, it's time for the moment of truth. Reconnect the power source and turn on your truckmount. 

Keep a close eye on the valve area for any leaks or irregularities. If you spot a leak, turn off the machine immediately and re-tighten the valve. If everything looks good, give yourself a pat on the back—you've successfully installed a 180 thermal relief valve on your truckmount!
