Thank you for this post! We were camping this weekend and noticed a ton of water coming out of our NEW hot water heater's pressure release valve. A ton, like the waterfall you describe.

Thanks to your post I'm getting a new pressure release valve now!

Just saw this thread- relief valves are notorious for leaking. At work we had to check them in houses by flipping the lever monthly. On a very regular basis they would not reseat properly and had to be replaced. So we had our maintenance crews carry spares. I always mean to throw a spare in the AS....

Glad we can be part of a solution. I will look for a place to buy a spare, and put it in my tool kit.

And if it leaks you need to change it. It leaks down on the wiring and the ignitor and will cause corrosion and failure to ignite. I changed both the thermostat (went to and adjustable one) and the pressure relief and it was a very good change. I also had to clean the ignitor base and put in a new screw so that it was grounded.
