SOURCE: leaking pressure relief valve

what is the water pressure on the cold side? You may need to install a pressure reducing valve at the water heater inlet to reduce inlet pressure and keep pop off valve from opening when not needed.

How to change out copper piping from release valve


If the release valve referred to is the pressure release valve, then a water leak out the attached vent pipe is an indication that the valve is failing. To change the valve, the water must be allowed to cool (turn off AC power or gas) and the water level inside the tank must be lowered (drained) to below the level of the pressure relief valve. Once this is accomplished the vent pipe is unscrewed from the relief valve and the pressure relief valve is unscrewed from the water tank. A new pressure relief valve with a sealant on the threads, is then screwed and tightened into place with the outlet port facing downward. The vent pipe is attached to the new valve and the tank refilled with water. A hot water facet must be opened to allow air to exit while filling. Upon becoming full (water will begin to flow from facet), turn off the facet and restore AC power or gas, therefore allowing the water heater to heat up. When the first hot water is utilized there may be some air expelled from the facet.

How do I re seal around the pressure release valve on a ge8s06aag water heater


The model number you have doesn't match anything and you don't say exactly where on the valve it is leaking so you are going to get my straightup advice. If the valve is leaking around the pin or lever it probably should be replaced for safety purposes. On the off chance that it got fiddled with by accident, or the tank is pretty old and has gotten corroded or you have mineral deposits, you can flush it.
Make sure the discharge pipe is properly connected and will discharge hot water outside safely, raise the lever on the release valve, by pulling the lever to the up position, make sure water is flowing out the discharge pipe and then re-close the valve by lowering the lever back to the flat position, flat side down. Be careful the lever may have gotten a little warm. If it is still leaking around the pin, it needs to be replaced. If the valve is leaking from the base where it attaches to the tank, the discharge pipe will have to be "sweated" off, the valve removed and re-doped which is not usually a job for a homeowner.

The water is out flow.After the system runs. It is keep dripping a while then stop. It can be filled up that bucket a day


The water heater is equipped with safety device called a pressure relief valve. This valve is designed to open automatically when water pressure inside the tank becomes too great.

The relief valve should have a lever on the top. Lift it / push down on it briefly and it will allow water in the tank to flow through it (and out the pipe into the bucket). By allowing water to flow, will clear any debris caught between the seat and seal that may be causing the leak. If the valve continues to leak after doing this, the valve should be replaced. In most areas, this type of work is required to be performed by a licensed / qualified plumber.

Good luck!

Gas ignites flame but water is not getting hot


You have gas water heater with working burner.
But not getting hot water at faucet?

1) Bad faucet cartridge. Test for crossover. Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Crossover.html


2) Is there hot water inside the tank? Open drain valve and check for hot water.

3) Drips and leaks: Turn off all taps and put ear against pipe and listen for water leak.
Water leak can run all the hot out of tank.

Water is dripping down one of the 3 feet under the heater. Does this mean it needs replacing?


make sure that the water is not coming from the over flow tube or the drain valve at the bottem of the tank first. If it is not then yes there is an internal leak and the tank should be replaced

Cold water ok, no water flow from hot water lines.


Bypass valve incorrectly set
obstruction or dirty tank
plugged line - lime or other! does cold flow into tank ok?
Tank is split water going somewhere you can't see - this should be obvious.

There is not really anything to obstruct the flow normally so there
would have to be an obstruction somewhere. Lime, junk, garbage etc build up .
On my coach I have lots of pressure on the cold side so hot would have to have the same unless there is an obstruction into or out of the tank. If in the bypass position you have sufficient flow than the lines are ok and the problem or obstruction is in the tank itself. Drain the tank, leave the bottom plug out, open up the pressure relief valve. Turn on the water and see if you get a lot of water draining from the drain hole on the tank. There should be a lot of water coming out of the drain hole. If so that tells you that your getting sufficient flow into the hot water tank. If so your problem is the water getting out of the tank. Like a clogged return line or an obstruction from the water tank to the faucet. A dirty scale lined tank can do a number on tank water flow. Also check to see if the water is going somewhere else, your tank could be split and you just can't see where the water is going!

I have a propane hot water tank that in discharging the hot water out the relief valve (Champion energy saver series)


possible problems not knowing age of unit the
control valve could be sticking open allowing gas to continue to flow until high limit is reached and shuts down valve another possible problem with the newer style back flow preventer being install by water companys the rapid heating and expansion of the water over pressures the water system causing releif valve to pop open and reclose most water heater manufacters are recommending instalation of an expansion tank to allow the growth in volume of water somewhere to go is valve constantly leaking or only during heating cycle if you could supply additional information does unit only leak when heating
or is steam expelled when releif valve opens
t-stat not opening gas valve sticking partially open
bad high limit bad pressure releif valve no expansion tank to allow for thermal expansion if steam is present and unit is boiling water inside replacement of water heater for safety concerns,would be reccomended if only water and pops couple of times water temp not over 140 degrees after most hot water has been used out of tank and is reheating most of capacity probably lack of expansion tank as the releif valve is the final safety device on a water heater is of great concern
the temp control gas valve or high limit are supposed to shut unit done long before the safety limit of releif valve is reached

No water pressure in bath tub after turning off hot water heater


It could be back flowing into the hot water heater tank which is not full because of the leak. Even though the valve is closed on the cold water entry side, there is probably no valve on the exit side. That is how it is returning to the tank.
