hot water boiler

hi, i have been working on this 3 zone hydronic boiler .
the relief valve is blowing by after it exceeds 30lbs. and then in reseats it self(as it is designed to do) . the temp.controler is set for 180degree's ,which it is maintaining. i just recentlly replaced the water regulator. and the relief on the water make up line is not blowing . what do you think may be causing the system to over pressures and blow the relief periodically like this ?.
