Decided to top off my Great White tank today to test my set-up with the one-way foster fitting. I started off with 3500 psi in the tank and planed to fill to about 4200 psi. The first time I filled I went from 3500 psi to about 4000 psi in about 12 minutes. I added my chilled water to my 5 gal. bucket started the water pump then the compressor. At about 9 minutes I had the burst disc pop off at about 3900 psi. The water temperature was still at about 45 celsius so pump was not over heating but I believe as other have mentioned these Yong Heng burst discs are just not calibrated right for the pressure. I went ahead as others mentioned and just doubled up on the burst disc replacement. I don’t think this will be dangerous as I have the set-pressure model and always stay in the area to monitor the compressor and the other pressure gauges. Bill
