Frozen air valves will not operate and can be damaged. Thermally activated relief valves (typically supplied in 3/8 or '/2 in. 19 mm or 13 mml diameter) can be installed on the valve body t o release water and reduce the possibility of damage from freezing. The relief valve automatically opens when the water temperature in the valve falls below a set point (typically 35°F [ Z O C l ) and recloses at higher temperatures. Contamination Valves with top-threaded openings should be protected with a protective cap, U-bend, or elbow to prevent rocks, sand, and other particles from falling into the valve.
