Temperature & Pressure Valve



The Temperature and Pressure Valve (T & P) is the water heater’s primary safety apparatus. The T & P valve is designed to release the pressure to prevent an explosion in cases of extreme temperature or pressure within the tank. T & P valves should be tested annually and replaced according to manufacturer specifications.
