    I've read this thread from beginning to end a few times over the years. I'm having a similar problem and end up having to change valve every 5 years.

    How come when he installed a new valve the first time it didn't fix the problem but the second new valve did? A bad new valve?

    I'd bet more on a bad or weak connection somewhere which didn't get tweaked -- or not enough -- the first time and did the second.
