I need to replace the temperature-pressure relief valve on my Sears Kenmore Power Miser 5 hot water heater, but the only replacement valve I can find has a longer shank than the original. The package says it is universal, but in the instructions it says to use the same shank size as the original, or else death may occur.
The temperature probe doesn't appear to extend as far into the tank as the original.
Is it safe?
