The water is not hot because it is cold water that is expanding when it is heated. You need an expansion tank on the cold water line into the heater to absorb the presure build up.

: i just installed a new natural gas hot water heater, instal was a snap. the pressure relief valve drips, i even get a steady stream of water from my discharge pipe every time the heater is heating water. the water being discharged is not hot. do i just have a faulty relief valve that needs replaced or is their another reason this could be happening?
