We have a brand new rheem 40 gal elec water heater, after installation we have water leaking from the base of the relief valve, pooling up in the plastic fitting and making it way over the side all over...


Water heater should be set in a drip pan.
Otherwise, put 1 gallon bucket under TP release pipe to catch water.

When you say relief valve, I assum you are talking about brass valve located on top of tank or near top of tank. This is TP valve and a pipe connects to this valve and runs down to within 6" of bottom of tank. TP valve has a small lever on it.
If you are talking about tank drain valve located at bottom of tank, then add a comment.
Following information is for TP valve.

Dripping TP valve can be caused by 3 different thing:

1) Obstruction inside TP valve. Open TP valve for a moment to flush away particles and slowly lower lever back down. See if water stops dripping, if not, then replace TP valve

2) Defective TP valve: replace TP valve. Turn off electricity to water heater. Let heater cool for several hours so you do not get scalded. Close shut off valve located above tank on cold side. Open tub spout to relieve pressure, open tank drain or open TP valve and empty water below TP valve level. If TP is located on top of tank, not much water has to be drained. Tank is under press when hot, so be careful. Put teflon tape on new valve and install with big pipe wrench by turning clockwise until TP valve is very tight.

3) Overheating tank. TP valve is temperature-pressure valve. If tank water is over 150 degrees, the TP valve starts drizzling hot water to relieve tank pressure.
Lower tank pressure two different ways:
a) turn down thermostat

b) install expansion tank on incoming cold water line

Worcester combi gas boiler 3.5 highflow is constantantly dripping water at the external flue position over flow pipe


water vapour is one the main products of combustion of gas. With a standard efficiency boiler, upon initial heat up when the flue is cold this vapour can condensate on the inner wall of the flue but should stop once the flue heats up, to stop this condense dripping back on to the heat exchanger the flue should be tilted towards the outlet and thus on initial heat up water can drip from the flue. with high efficiency (condensing) boilers, condensation will occur in the flue and secondary heat exchanger during normal operation, dispense of this condensate is accommodated for in the boiler and therefor the flue should be tilted towards the boiler, if not the flue will drip constantly.

Leaking braided water line from under spout LITTLE GOURMET


you will have to get a replacement from the manifacture,, they will send it to you, call them tell them wich one it is hot or cold they may have diffrent threads then again they may be the same,,,can you get the threaded part out of the faucet, you will need an extractor, you can get this at a hardware store, it has a rubber seal so you can only tighten it so much, get it ot try again but be gentle,, one thing I found after doing plumbing for 34 years if you snug it and it leaks you can always snug it some more if you over tighten it you can't do anything but replace it,,,, good luck let me know how it goes

Have a pheem 15 gallon electric hot water heater that i am trying to install and I do not know where the side mounted tpr value and pipe assembly gets tied into or does it just floats their until pressure...


the t-p valve is for pressure release, if you have to much pressure it will spout off, you need to chck the pressure comming into it should be no more than 75lbs, the tp valve has a rating of 95lbs,, it is not to do anything but just sit on the side of the water heater and should install a drip leg {section of pipe} this is for safety, when it goes off it will be hot water nd this makes it so you can get close to the water heater to shut off the supply

THE INSTA HOT HEATER KEEPS TRIPPING THE BREAKER?


Hire an electrician.  The breaker needs to be replaced or the wiring in your house is not able to handle it.  I believe most need 2-30amp breakers.
