If you are thinking that changing the relief valve had something to do with the pump now running continuously, it probably has nothing to do with it, unless you had water spraying all over the place and the controls got wet.

Are you sure the pump wasn't running all the time before you changed the relief valve?

Why did you change the relief valve?

The pump runs when one of the thermostats calls for heat.
Has one of your family (or visitors) changed a setting?
Did you accidentally change a setting while working?
