      Putting somewhere else in the line rather than right at the bottom like in a typical fashion.

        You are using an isolation kit right? If not you should. To be honest I don't think it really matters but your local inspector may have a different opinion.

          I was under the impression that a tankless doesn't need a prv. What does the inspector say about?

            They do not require t&P's for the standard install but they require the pressure relief. If you add a tank for a recirc. and then it is usually only installed on the water heater for that loop.

              Yes, but you should talk to local inspector first. Ever hear of a watts 210 valve? http://www.watts.com/prod_images/hi-res/210-5.jpg

              It is a valve that threads into where the T&P valve goes on a water heater. It stops the gas to the heater if the temp. gets over 210 Then you run the gas line to it and then from it down to the gas valve on the water heater. Then you have to put a relief valve somewhere else in the system to relieve the pressure on the hot line at a safe point. This is used when you have a water heater crammed into place with no place to safely drain the t&p to. So, Local code enforcement should allow you to put a relief valve somewhere else. Also a good idea to put write the location of the relief at the water heater or every other plumber that looks at it will bad mouth you.

                    They don't require a T&P valve but they do require a pressure relief valve like other boilers (rated above the btu demand of the unit).

                      The relief valve must be installed according to the manufacturers instructions. Whatever their install manual says, you do. Or, you loose in court.
