The Temperature/Pressure Relief Valve One of the most common code violations our inspectors observe in the field involves the Temperature/Pressure Relief (TPR) Valve on the water heater unit.
If the air pressure in the water heater space is lower than that in the vent, products of combustion might “spill” out of the draft hood and Water heater installations must comply with all applicable mandatory measures of the California Energy Code.
Hydrostatic working pressure of the water heater (150 psi = 1,035 kPa) and a discharge capacity not less than the water heater Btu/hr or kW input rate as shown on the water heater’s model rating plate. For safe operation of the water heater, the temperature-
Traditional methods of scrubbing and washing construction equipment can fall way short of satisfactory results. Daimer's new supreme-quality pressure washers emitting hot water and steam, and equipped with modern technologies can help in removing almost all types of dirt, grease deposits, and oil build-up which construction equipment can attract quickly.

And pressure relief valve on the hot water heater discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal expansion in a closed water system. Contact the water supplier or your plumbing contractor on how to correct this. Do not plug the relief valve outlet.

224 Water Heater – Midwest homes with poor water pressure. • Larger systems can handle two “major” simultaneous events (2 showers or 1 shower and the dishwasher, for example). • The volume of hot water delivered is directly related to the amount of
pressure increase in the water heater and system piping. This rapid pressure increase can quickly reach the safety setting of the relief valve, causing it to operate during each heating cycle. Thermal expansion, and the resulting

The temperature and pressure in the water heater is reduced when hot water is withdrawn from a faucet and cold water enters the tank. The increase in pressure from thermal expansion can also be reduced by water flowing back into the public water system.
Maximum working pressure of the water heater. The combination temperature and pressure relief valve must also have an hourly rated temperature steam BTU discharge capacity not less than the hourly rating of the water heater.
Age caused by water from the water heater, pressure relief valve, or related fittings where adequate provision to drain such water has not been made. Closet s without drains and carpet – ed areas are examples of unsuitable locations for any water heater.
