I would hope the relief valve is wasted, since I would never reinstall one on a new water heater. And most tanks come with the T&P installed these days.

: Gary:Replace the T&P valve, if it still contiues to drip occasionly install a thermal expansion tank. The tank will provide a buffer when water expands after beeing heated. I suspect that your water supplier has placed a double check valve at your meter to comply with a Federal mandate to control water quality.
: The T&P valve and the tank will not be wasted money, you will be needing them when you eventually retire your present water heater.
: Merry Christmas.......Bud.
