I think there is a problem with the rear dump valve on my escape. It seams that the spring is weak or something because when the thing gets close to full it starts to leak. I have made sure the gasket doesn't have any sand or anything on it, and the only other thing I can think of is the spring isn't strong enough. so, I was wondering where I could get a new spring for it, or should I just send it back to zeagle?

Maybe the seal is bad. send it back of have an authorized shop replace it. It's inexpensive.

This is actually marchand; I am just using JahJah's account for no reason.

I already checked the seal: all the rubber is good.

Are you sure it's not the overpressurization relief? If the bladder gets too full it will automatically dump air until it isnt over pressurized.

It's supposed to bleed at some point - but if you feel it's doing it too easy, you can unscrew it, and just stretch the spring a bit.. then put it back in. That's all there is too it.

It definitely isn't overpressure relief because the thing isn't even full when it starts squealing.

Larry, Thanks for the advice , I'm going to try it right now and see if it works.
