Do you see water leaks around your pressure relief valve? Temperature and pressure relief valves should be tested at least every 6 months. The valve is important as it protects your water heater from extreme pressure that could cause serious damage. The pressure valve allows the water to escape when it gets a bit too hot under the heater’s collar, so to speak.
A small leak of water during heating is usually normal, but if you’re concerned, give us a call. What you need to look out for is continuous dribble from the discharge pipe, and when this happens, letting some water out by raising the lever may fix the problem – you see sometimes dirt gets lodged inside and by discharging some water you may be able to fix it. If that won’t work then give us a call.
If you see a steady or heavy discharge of water from the valve then we probably need to replace the pressure valve.
