Question about Rheem 40 Gallon FVR NATGAS Low WATER HEATER 6YR 22V40SF
The pressure relief valve is going bad causing water to run out of drain line. They are easy to replace and they are a standard 3/4' threads. Turn power off and drain water down till no water comes out of drain if you lift the lever on the relief valve.
Lowes or Home Depot will carry a replacement for this heater. The T & P valve is a safety feature that will open if the pressue get's to high due to high heat in heater. With this you would get a blast of hot water running out.
T & P valve start to go bad they start dripping and evenually can not hold water back. This is a early sign for you to replace before it goes to running out.
