I need some clarification as to what you mean by a "pop off valve"

Expert:  Rick replied 1 year ago.

A "pop off valve" is not a plumbing term. I have a solution for you but until I know for sure what you're referring to I can't give you an answer specific to your situation. There are several possibilities.
