How do you install a hydrostatic relief valve?

A hydrostatic relief valve is placed at the bottom of an in-ground pool. Its purpose is to open when excessive ground water pressure builds up allowing the ground water into the pool. These valves are most important during construction or when the pool needs to be drained. While the pool is empty, there is nothing weighing the pool down. It is at this time the pool vessel is most vulnerable. Without a hydrostatic relief valve, high ground water pressure could lift the pool out of the ground. The hydrostatic relief valve is installed upon installation of the pool, or when renovation work is being done. It is secured into one of the main drain ports. A pebble tube is required to prevent the hydrostatic valve from clogging.
