Leaks from the body of the valve itselfThe apec water system works great except for at the connection to the storage tank. I think there may be too much pressure for this little plastic valve to handle. I tried tightening this valve but it didn't stop the leak. I looked closer and the water was seeping out of the plastic of the valve around the base and not from around the connection. I ordered a replacement valve from Amazon and hopefully this will stop the leak.

easy to install but leaks if not carefulI purchased it and followed the steps to the best of my abilitys, it did fine for the first three hours but after the tank was full the back pressure caused it to leak and it flooded our home.
