boiler blowing off

hi i have a 5 year old peerless boiler that is blowing off the relief valve at 30 psi.
i have already replaced the water feed regulator to no avail . this system uses a super store indirect water heater with its own blow off valve.

the second blow off valve on the boiler keeps blowing off. i checked the schrader valve on the extrol model 30 P/n 9015a186 expansion tank, and have no water coming out. i reset the pre charge to 12 psi and tonight i noticed a small pinhole leak on the back underside of the tank near the water fill pipe. could this hole be my problem or should i look elsewhere. i know the tank needs to be replaced

Please punctuate your post as it is all run together and makes no sense when i try to read it.

Just slow, not stupid.

Good chance its the tank causing the problem.

Bladder tanks can not be properly recharged while connected to the system.

Unless there is a shut off valve, and vent valve between it and the system.
