Hi I posted a question about 2 weeks ago on a leaking wilkins vacuum pressure breaker. The breaker was spraying water out the top. Bought a wilkins repair kit and replacement bonnet.
When I saw the new bonnet at the store I could tell the old one was clearly damaged. It was bent upward.Now I understand why the canopy was cracked amd I had such a difficult time lining its screw holes with the bonnet.So I assume by the time I had the system winterized last year(done later than usual in Nov here in NJ),water had already froze in the system.
I replaced all the above and water is still spraying out the top of the breaker. Don't know if the placement of the poppet in the spring is the cause. I placed the spring in first and then sort put the poppet in it.
The breaker body itself shows no cracks or signs of leaking.
Any suggestions are appreciated. Am ready to pull out my hair.
