The valve should only be for a safety. It should not be used as a bleeder valve as it is not going to reseal consistency. If it is opened manually or automatically on a regular basis or occasionally it will get progressively worse and the spring is subject to corrosion. A devise to allow for expansion will work or allowing air into the system but using a relief valve as a bleeder is going likely to be problematic.
