leaky releif valve on gas Hot Water heater
Posted by John Brenchley on March 20, 1999 at 20:47:57:
I went down to the basement and found water leaking out of the relief valve of my gas hot water heater. I flicked the handle and it still continues to leak. We have relatively hard water here and I believe some buildup is partially opening the valve. First question is what causes the relief valve to release? The second question is if I have to replace the valve, what are the basic steps?
