Water heater pressure relief valve
Posted by Sue on July 08, 2004 at 15:54:12:
I live in a condo above another condo and need to protect from flooding from water heater. Two yrs ago I had a plumber install a new heater (6yr tank 1 yr control Bradford White) and drain pan patched through the air conditioning drain. Yesterday the relief valve went and almost flooded me and my downstairs neighbor. The plumber said I put the temp too high on the heater. Also the drain did not work. He replaced the pressure valve with a 180 one. Should I get a better water heater? Should it go so hot it blows the valve(it had gone to 150 degrees). What about the drain pan? Can anyone help? Thanks!
