    Re: Water pressure too high after using hot water

    I replace the T&P without incident (just got the floor a little wet).

    Turned the thermostat back up, and the pressure built up to near 150 again... but this time, the T&P valve opened up.

    The old T&P is below. Not that I've ever seen an 8 year old T&P before, but this one looks pretty corroded.

    Now I'm going to contact the plumber on Monday and see if I can't get him here sooner then the end of the week. In the meantime, I'm gonna have to keep letting the pressure off in the sink after we use hot water.

    I'll post again after the expansion tank is installed to let you know how that goes.

    Thanks again for everyones help!!! If you guys ever need computer help, please PM me.

      I think it was cool watching you work through it.Good luck with your plumber.

      I'm thankfull for your thanks to the guys.A lot of people don't appreciate the efforts these guys put into someones task in need of help and even go so far as being rude when it gets challenging.

              Anytime Adam, hope you guys had a good time tonight. I was going to go but had a couple of jobs today, and the thought of driving three hours in the rain on the freeway when we are waiting for snow wasn't appealing. Next time for sure........Rick

                I can breath already!
                THAT was what we were mainly concerned with...extremely dangerous when a T&P doesn't work.
                The expansion tank is next in priority.
                As for your offer...not so fast, we can definetly use some helpful advice on internet marketing, PPC, and whats "in" as far as web pages...etc.

                      At this point Bens gonna hafta watch every word he types in case it was used on that thread...for example, he typed the word "the" numerous times there..so use of that word might be construed as referrencing that thread...Ben, sorry...no more "the" in your dialogue.

                              Fronty doesn't even bother me anymore because I believe he actually has some medical or social disorder(not joking). I think it's pretty sad and pathetic so Fronty, please get help. You have had some long term underlying issues that flared up in our conversation. I hope you get the help you need.

                                Sounds good to me. Just don't copy other people. My point isn't following him here; it is they fact that he won't let it go. I have chose to ignore him. I realized this morning that every time I see him reference me, I laugh and shake my head. I actually find it amusing. I should find humor and be flattered that I affected someone so positively. Seriously, I could write a whole thread on psycho Ben and you would think he is crazy. I had a few friends read through his threads, pms, and such not telling them that I was fronty. They all thought this guy was a stalker. Nobody here knows the full story except Ben and I, which is a little scary.


                                EDIT: I went back and deleted all of my threads. This wasn't the proper venue to handle it. I should have contacted Josh the webmaster or called the police.
