PRV identification please

I'm looking to replace the pressure relief valve on my AIRE 13D floor bladder. I've attached a picture. Do you guys and gals think it's a Leafield A6? The bladder and valve are about 10 years old.

You know who would know? Aire

My 2007 aire super duper puma had a bad PRV valve. Got a new one from Aire for free. Take it out and work the action in some soapy water, rinse off and let dry. Re-install. If it still leaks. See if Aire will send you one for free. I usually have to clean mine every couple years floating non-silty (PNW rivers). If you float silty rivers often then you'll have to clean it more often.

Use this link to a chart to find the proper valve. There should be a colored dot on the inside top of the valve. If you need a new one checkout rivergear.com. He is the US distributor for Leafield and will have the proper size valve.

Or even easier, call the aire shop on Monday with the serial number on our floor Aire Cell and they will tell you what you have and might even just send you another one if you are convinced it is broke. Aire service department: 800-243-2473
