If you are paying for your water, I litre per hour is going to cost you. If the unit is 15 years old, I would seroiusly comsider replacing it buy, if it's just a bad valve, you could try to replace it. If it is cracked at the threads, it's time to replace it for sure.

Yes, Turn the knob on the gas valve to off. Turn off the incoming water line into the water heater. If you have a valve on the outlet turn it off too. Open the drain at the bottom of the heater to drain a little water from heater. You can then lift the lever on the temperature/pressusre relief valve to let a little air in to release the vacuum and let the tank drain. If the relief is in the side let it drain a bit longer so the water level is below the outlet. Be sure to re-install the down pipe on the relief valve on the new valve. You should drain the a few gallons of water at least once a year from your heater, and you should exercise your temperature relief valve once a year to be sure it will function. If your new valve leaks suspect your temperature control allowing the water to get too hot.

Water dripping out of drain line on my Rheem Water Heater


The T & P valve is connected to the drain and it may be bad causing it to drip. You could try lifting the lever and then closing it back on it to see if it will seal. Also check the thermostat for heat setting, but than likely it is going bad.

It is a pressure relief valve and normally last about 5 years or more before they need to be replaced. The purpose of this valve is to protect heater from building up pressure and protecting the home, It releases water once the heater reachs beyond the limit of the valve can handle.

It is a standard 3/4" thread and can be removed with a pipe wrench. Just turn power, water off and drain water down to just below where the drain is.

Lowes or Home depot shoul dhave one just ask for a pressure relief vakve for a Hot Water Heater. prices range around $15.00.

Dripping Drain valve on rheem water heater


If your water heater is 10 years old or more, it's much better to replace the entire thing before you start having additional problems with it. You MAY be able to drain your water heater and replace the valve with something more reliable, but, as I've said... if your water heater is old, this is just the 1st thing to go wrong. More will follow.

Rheem 50 Gal Hot Water Heater will not stay lit


On the back of the gas valve (where you turn the temp up) there is a stem that actually goes into the tank that senses the temprature of the water it could be dirty or buried in sediment depending on how old the tank is, or just bad. if the tank is over 10 years old i wouldn't bother replacing the gas valve, the tank is probably not far behind. A new valve will run around $100.00 maybe a little less. You wont find it at menards or home depot in stock but they may be able to order it for you. Menards sells rheem products or try you local plumbing supply house. REMEMBER TO RELIEVE THE PRESSURE ON THE TANK BEFORE YOU WORK ON IT. IF YOU CHANGE THE VALVE DRAIN IT FIRST!
