Jeff Stevens. I posted before looking for a combo prv / fill valve but the lead some one segusted wasn’t fruitful for my boat. Perhaps others will have the right threaded valve.

The combined prv/inflation valve was the Bravo Super Valve

Thanks jeffstevens,
They recommended C6 @ 5.5psi
I called my zodiac dealer. A new guy replaced the main tech guy I dealt with and he races with Futuras (taking a knife to a gun fight) anyway he over fills his main tubes past 6psi with no worries.
The original tech guy said to expect a rupture at any psi over 5.2psi. And that was pretty close to the 4.3psi recommended pressure.
Perhaps I've just been overly concerned. I'll just lower the pressure some for the drive home.
What's the worst that could happen.

hi pagick

it's been a big concern by some regarding tube pressure increase in hot weather i did speak to a well know tube manufacturer on here regarding tube test pressure and it's not much more than working pressure and has to hold that pressure for 24 hours + or - temp fluctuation i did do some maths a long time back and from memory an increase of 10 degrees C gives about 6% pressure increase which isn't a lot and dosnt get near test pressure, for me in all my 50 years of inflatable tubes ive always hit the tube with my hand if it rings it's up to pressure if the temp increases dramatically i dump some air and leave the dust caps off which is the secondary seal and allows a bit of air to dump unless your valves are leaking badly and never had any issues, over here in the uk ive found with my last two boats i pump up to pressure once a year and thats it i cover my boats too when not in use to keep them in the shade.
