Do you have any advice for people relative to buying or using pressure relief valves?
Purchase the type of relief valve for the application of the vessel that the valve is installed. Example : air tank ( relief valve intended for air service) or hot water heating boiler (relief valve intended for hot water service) etc.

Sizing a pressure relief valve to make sure of flow rates is vital before purchase, also Material spec is very important i.e carbon steel , stainless steel etc.

Buyers must not do search for what they may feel are equivalent to specified valve.

Ensure spare parts availability and after sales services.

Check relief flow capacity not just pressure setting.
