Stay safe – replace your temperature pressure relief valve (TPR)
Your hot water system’s TPR is a safety valve that stops pressure in your tank from getting too high. If heat or pressure builds up in your tank, the valve releases water to relieve pressure. If pressure builds up but the valve fails to work, your hot water system becomes a bomb ready to explode.
Manufacturers advise TPRs are replaced every five years or less to keep your system and your family safe.
