I have a noisy check valve. The spring costs about $12 and the seat assembly is about $50. Which should I replace to quiet the noise? Thanks.

When I pulled the seat assembly, I found the rubber was badly out-of-round. Silicone lube didn't help. Next, I swapped parts from another valve and that didn't help either. Finally, I screwed the cap on with no guts and that made it quiet. So, I'll go with new innards and hope that works.
