I needed to replace a broken UWF valve for my Polaris. Even with the restrictor valves inserted, I can feel water coming out of the black relief valve. Is this normal behavior, or is it broken or encountering too much pressure?

could be - is it trickling out or gushing out? have you checked for obstructions in the gears (something tangled up in the wheels), back up valve functioning correctly (if present)?

No water comes out of my valve. Here's decent video (
) that shows how you take it apart to clean it... which could be the problem if it's not the valve.
