The important role of Temperature & Pressure Relief (TPR) Valves

TPR Valves | Hot Water Geelong | Tomlinson Plumbing

The TPR valve on your hot water heater protects the tank and ensures the safe operation of the unit.

When the water heats and expands inside the storage tank of your hot water heater, 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.

Temperature & Pressure Relief (TPR) valves are found at the top of storage hot water heaters and 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!
