Question about Water Heaters
Not familiar with that exact heater but if it is an electric heater with a top and bottom element this may be the problem. Electric water heaters usually heat water off the bottom element. If a lot of hot water is used then the top one kicks in through the temperature controls. In some cases if the bottom element burns out, it will try to heat everything with the top element. This sometimes causes the water in the top of the tank to actually get too hot and it opens the relief valve. So you may have a bottom element bad. Otherwise your relief vale may need replaced or you have a sticking temp control making it get too hot.
