In response to Re: Leaking TP valve on new gas H2O heater

: : I just (3/8/99) installed a new 50 gallon gas water heater and it is leaking about a gallon of water/day from the TP valve. The booklet with the heater states that this requires attention. Any suggestions?

: Dean you may need an expansion tank on the hot water line. did you have this problem with the old heater? Dale


Thank you for the reply Dale.

The old heater had the problem of a leaky TP valve for about the past year, BUT NOT prior to that. Is it normal to not need one (expansion tank) and then all of the sudden need one?
