  • H2O heater ??

    Greetings!

    I have a basic water heater maintenance question: How does one change the TP valve on a water heater?

    I'm guessing:

    1] turn the heater to pilot - it's a gas fired unit
    2] turn off the cold water supply
    3] connect a hose to the drainage bibb
    4] run hose to a heat safe drain and let'er rip
    5] open hot water faucet(s) in the house to let air into the system
    6] while draining or after draining is complete, swap out the TP valve

    Have I missed anything? I'd like to prevent any geysers in the basement if possible.

    Thanks!

    there is a recent thread about this subject in the General Plumbing Discussion area on this forum.
    You should find answers there.
