What is the TPR Valve on my hot water heater for?

Temperature and Pressure Relief (TPR) valves are found at the top of storage hot water heaters. When the water heats and expands inside the storage tank, ready for you to use, the job of the TPR valve is to relieve the pressure by allowing a little of the water to escape. The valve protects the tank and ensures the safe operation of the water heater.

Small amounts of water will normally discharge from the valve & drain line while the hot water system is heating; however, if it’s a continuous trickle or a heavy flow, you have something else going on!
