    Same one I use also set to 15 lbs. I plumbed mine with a gauge and used air to set the relief pressure on it than hooked the water hoses back up, haven't had any problems since.

    I have always used the one that Rex, Teague, CP sells. It's smaller than that McMaster one and seems to do the job.

    I use the larger one so it'll release more faster

    Right! If you are running a lot of HP, the 1/2" valve can back up pressure. We always recommend and use the 3/4" valves in our systems. .02
