    Riva RRFPR rr reference line?

    Just about to install my Riva RRFPR, as a static reg (NOT rising rate) but need to know about the reference line fitting. I only have the barb fitting for RR and not the vent fitting which should be used for static.

    I need to know if I should completely block the barb off and make it air tight or should a make a gauze filter over the barb to allow air in and out?

    Not sure what it needs to do, if anything when not used for a reference line.

    Thoughts????

    ps, no I dont have the original Riva vent fitting unfortunately !!

    You should block it... If running in non rising state

    Guy's,
    No poll needed on this one, You must leave the vent open. The Reg. will not work correctly if you plug it.


    Tornado34 if you need a replacement vent stone please contact us we do have them: part # 9833k18 and 11761-2-pkg

    Yeah, don't block it, it will mess with the diaphram and it won't regulate pressure as it should
