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.
Open drain valve and drain water heater. If there is rusty water, then check anode Gas has less pressure than water line. Turn gas ON. Use soapy water to check for leaks on gas line, and on tubes under new gas control.
Hot Water Heater Information If the inlet is not blocked by a check valve, pressure reducing valve, or other device, the increase in volume simply travels back into the source.

The water heater, pressure relief valve or related fittings where adequate provision to drain such water has not been made. Closets without drains and carpeted areas are examples of unsuitable locations for any water heater.

Stated that the working pressure of the water heater tank would be designated at 42% of the test pressure. As most heaters were tested at 300psi, Watts ASME rated pressure relief valves act as both a water pressure relief valve as well as a steam safety relief valve. As thermal expansion

Not to exceed the marked hydrostatic working pressure of the water heater (150 lbs. p.s.i.) and a discharge capacity not less than the water heater input rate as shown on the OPEN the water heater drain valve to allow for tank draining. NOTE:
pressure levels in a water heater. Once the pressure in the tank reaches the valve’s pressure rating, it will slightly open relieving the pressure. Relieving of pressure can be noted as “dribbling” or “weeping” water from the relief valve.
• A metallic creaking noise might actually be heard in the location of the heater as the pressure is relieved and the stretched tank returns to a natural shape. • Check the water pressure gauge, The temperature and pressure relief valve
