How to Address a Leaking Rheem Water Heater from the Pressure Relief Valve?


James Thompson, Water Heater Repair Expert

If you are experiencing a leak from the pressure relief valve on your Rheem water heater, it is important to address the issue promptly to prevent further damage. Start by turning off the power supply and shutting off the water to the heater. Next, carefully inspect the valve for any signs of damage or debris. If the valve appears to be faulty or worn out, it may need to be replaced. However, if the valve seems to be in good condition, the problem could be related to excessive pressure in the tank. In this case, you may need to adjust the temperature and pressure settings on the water heater. If you are unsure or uncomfortable performing these steps, it is recommended to seek assistance from a professional plumber. The specialists at 5 Star Best Plumbing are highly skilled in water heater repair and can help resolve any issues you may have.
