Great job on the UDS. I just finished my 6th. I love making and using them! My UDS's will hold 275 with 2 nipples capped off and the 3/4inch ball valve about 90% open. You'll get it dialed in!
You may be having a problem because of the height of your ball valve intake. I have heard some people have had problems with that. I have mine at foot level and that is how I control it.
