Unhappy Toilet goes South

While at a Cookoff a few weekends back my toilet valve for no apparent reason other than age decided to start leaking. Normaly when I am away I turn my pump off. This time however with guest staying I did not. I entered late in the evening to another supprise wet rugs and a small geyser. My only real need at a Cookoff is a shower before bed. NOT happening on this night. I have purchased the replacement part for the Tethford make I have and thought hard about a complete replacement. My need of expertise would be, if any one knows of any sure fire way of prevention. I bought the same part so at some point in the future this will happen again. I will most likely install a shut off on the supply line like at home. Hey the next time I can shower. Keep the dust on your boot

Were you "Dry Camping" on on city water?

Many of those valves are only rated to 60 PSI, if you hit 'em with city water, often 80 PSI, sometimes higher (Where I'm parked they have measured 120 PSI) it can blow the seals on the valve.

That's the bad news (A good WATTS regulator, such as I have in line, really helps here)

The good news is: Simple to replace the thing. At least on my SeaLand model 111 it is.
Home is where I park it!
