In response to Re: Temp/pressure relief valve
: I have a gas water heater and last night I noticed that I had hot water continuely running out of the temp pressure relief valve pipe. I turned the inlet water off and it stopped, other than replacing the TPR valve what else could it be and how can it be fixed.
: Thanks for your help.

There could be a few reasons for this; the T & P is defective, excessive water pressure in the system, the need of a thermal expansion tank, or the water heater relief valve is releasing because of excessive water temperature, (which would be rare, 210F).
If replacing the T & P doesn't stop the problem, seek the help of a professional, for your own safety.
Good Luck. e-plumber
