We bought a new humber just over a year ago and pressure relief valves were standard on dark colour tubes but an option on light colours . A year later and we're getting another new one and now over pressure valves are standard on all colours.
So I guess they're a good idea especially on dark colour tubes and save you having to drop a bit of pressure out on hot days which you invariably have to pump back in when the boat hits the water.

Excellent, thank you for all of you kind advise. I will be taking a trip to Ribcraft to buy the safety valves.

Thanks again,

Paul
