I recentely had to install a thermal expansion relief valve in my house to meet code. I chose the Watts Governor 80 which installs inside the toilet tank.

With- in an hour of flushing the toilet, the tank fills to the overflow pipe via the thermal expansion valve and contiually runs water into the bowl. Is this normal, for the valve to continually release water, or is something wrong and I'm wasting water ?

I understand this valve is suppose to relieve pressure above 80, but 24 hours a day ?

Thanks for any input as there is not much info. on this device on the web !;)

Have you checked your homes water pressure?  80 psi is not uncommon for many homes.  Take a gauge and place it on the hose bib where the water enters the home.  Do you have a regulator on your inlet?
