It sounds to me like you need to replace the relief valve and your shut off valve. You may be able to get by with a good cleaning if you have a problem with mineral build up on the seats.Thank you.

Water dripping from blowpipe


It is normal for water to drip out sometimes from the pressure relief valve outlet pipe. If it drips continuously then open and shut the pressure relief valve several times so the pressure relief valve shuts off properly.
If this does not fix the dripping problem then the pressure relief valve is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I have a 21v407 Rheem water heater that is leaking from the top relief valve. The leak i believe, is from under the valve. what is this problem. and how do u drain this thing?


Shut off the water supply valve over the heater. Shut off the electric or gas to the heater.
If you have any house or basement water valves below the level of the heater, open them and open a valve that is higher to vent it.
If necessary, open the drain at the bottom of the heater and using hose or buckets, lower the level below the relief/thermostatic valve. Be careful, the water is hot and softens even heavy hoses.
Once the water level is down, unthread the downtube (if there is one) from the discharge of the relief valve, unthread the relief valve from the heater and either dope/tape the threads or replace the relief valve.

Write back with any questions.

Pressure releif valve leaking


Hot water pressure relief valves serve two functions. The first is to remove high-pressure water from the hot water tank. The second function is to act as a high temperature valve to remove water that exceeds a predetermined point for the valve. Both of these relief settings are preset at the valve factory. Many pressure relief valves will come with a metal tag that identifies these release points. If you're attempting to remove the hot water heater pressure relief valve, pay careful attention to ensure that you replace with the correct valve.

Your hot water heater has a pressure relief valve safety mechanism. When pressure inside the water tank exceeds certain limitations, the valve opens up to allow the pressure to be released. A faulty pressure relief valve will not release excess pressure, which could cause extensive damage to your home. You should test the hot water heater pressure relief valve once every six months to ensure proper operation. If the pressure relief valve fails the test, replace the valve with a new one immediately

Locate the pressure relief valve on your hot water heater. The pressure relief valve has a lever handle on top with a drain pipe attached to it. The pressure relief valve is most often on the side of the water tank toward the top. Newer models of hot water heaters have the pressure relief valve on top of the water tank.

  • Inspect the area around the pressure relief valve for signs of leaking water. If there is leaking water near the relief valve connection, replace the relief valve. If no leaking is evident, proceed with testing the pressure valve.

    Examine the area below the pressure relief valve drain pipe. Most water heater closets either have a drain in the floor below the pipe or the pipe is inserted into another pipe to direct the water out of the home. If the end of your drain pipe is not in another pipe or there is no drain in the floor, place a bucket under the drain pipe to catch water when you test the pressure relief valve.

    Pull the lever handle on the top of the pressure relief valve up with your fingers. A working lever will lift up without difficulty.You should begin to hear water going through the drain pipe. Slowly release the lever to shut off the pressure relief valve. The pressure relief valve is good. If you did not hear water running through the drain pipe, lower the lever on the pressure relief valve and replace the valve. If the lever is difficult to raise, do not force the lever. Replace the pressure relief valve.


  • Now with all that said if you have a closed loop water supply system and you have a pressure vessal/expantion tank it may have gone bad and is making the TP valve leak. you can call your water provider to see if you have closed loop system.

    Hello Put a bucket under the relief valve and lift the lever up and snap it closed.Maybe it is not seated correctly.If not change it out.Also if the new one acts up you need a cold(domestic)water expansion tank(EXTROL) in the cold water pipe.

    Water Heater Keeps Going Off


    is there a check valvle on hot water side of heater,a flow restriction of some sort, water pressure to the heater, a filter in the line, line pressure in the heater kicks out burner, when you turn on the water, line pressure drops, heater comes on, when you turn on water in other part of house, heater should not fire, so there has to be a check valve somewhere,in heater?

    Water is flowing continually from the relief valve of my Rheem water heater. What can I do and can I turn the water off?


    Is the relief valve in the open position, try closing the relief valve.
    To shut the water off you have to shut the main water supply off were it comes out of the floor in your basement.

    Water comes out of the water dispenser in a trickle. Side by side model, icemaker in the door. Water filter was just replaced; water was only coming out in a trickle before replacement. Model 106.57033602


    Sounds like the solinoid valve in the back of the fridge is not closing all the way.usually located at the the bottem right. replace the valve. It will have a 1/4 inch plastic hose line attached to it. shut off the water source first, then remove the valve, be sure to write down the model and serial number before you go to a appliance shop.

    Water dispenser no longer dispenses water. Ice maker still works


    Has it stopped completely or just slowed to a trickle. If a trickle you need to replace the filter. If stopped either the feed line to the fridge has been pinched/shut off or the internal line has frozen, or the valve is no longer functional.
