It's designed to burp water occasionally.

There are rubber seals inside of the 765 that seal when pressurized. Opening the inlet valve slowly won't allow enough pressure to build in order to seal the gaskets. If once the gaskets seal, it continues to leak from under the "bell" then the gaskets maybe cracked or weathered.

Thanks Wet Boots. Why would water dribble out of the canopy the first time I tried, and then pour out of the vent the second time? Just trying to understand. Thanks again. :)

The bottom arrow points at a drain opening that was used to connect air to winterize the system. You should be able to thread in a plastic plug.

I went to start up my system today, and noticed water coming from the top of the BVP. I then went and moved the ball valves for the inlet and outlet. I realized after some more research that this was not necessary. :S Anyway, once I went to start the water through, water was pouring from the bottom (see red arrow). Did moving the ball valve to close then open get it frozen in the closed position? I'm guessing that this will require the BVP to be replaced? Any assistance would be appreciated.
