Question about Rheem 40 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 82VH402
My Rheem 29V 13ss gas water heater is issuing water from it's hot water overflow valve. What does this indicate? The only thing that might have affected perfomance is that we flushed the houses water supply just before this started to happen. Thank you
If by the hot water over flow valve you are refering to the T&P valve. It is activated by high temp. or high pressure. It is possible that when you flushed the lines it caused this to open. It is also common for these once open to get a little debris in them and cause them to continue to leak. Sometimes you can open and close them a few times and get them to reseal. Other times you have to replace them. Hope this helps.
