In response to Re: Water Heater: Pressure release valve
The relief valve could have a problem and is releasing the water improperly, which means it would require replacement. Or the water heater could have a major problem and the valve is just doing what it is supposed to do. Either situation will have the same symptoms so you will either have to check all the possibilities or have a plumber do it.

: For 3 days in a row I have had a large amount of water coming out of the preesure release valve on my hot water heater. Does this indicate a problem? Or is the release valve just doing its job well?
: The hot water heater is about 2 years old.
