MLA-RA9 leaking

Posted: 3 years ago Quote
There appears to be a small hole near the threads that screw the adapter on to the 1/2 riser. This hole shoots out water stream when system running. I have 12 of these adapters so far and only this one does this.
I disassembled the unit and it seems that this is part of the pressure regulator.  There are three other adapters on this same zone.  They do not do this. I have flushed and cleaned it and no luck so far. Any other ideas ? Weak spring maybe ?

Hi JDUNN,
What causes this leaking out of the release hole on the MLA-RA9 is typically there is dirt or debris on the diaphragm of the pressure regulator.  Try opening the top and flushing and cleaning out the interior pieces.   If this does not work then the piece of dirt and debris has rubbed on the surface enough to cause permanent damage and the unit will have to be replaced if you do not want the unit to continue leaking.
If you have any further questions on this please call us at the factory 800-654-4086.
Have a great day!
