Signs Of A Faulty T & P Relief Valve

The job of the temperature and pressure relief valve on your hot water heater is to release excessive pressure from the steam build-up inside. However, if you have been hearing bubbling noises in the hot water heater and/or your faucets have been releasing dangerously hot water or steam, your temperature & pressure relief valve may be defective. If this is the case, turn down the water heater's temperature and allow the water to cool before handling the issue.
