    Default Re: Why it is so important to maintain the TPR valve on your water heater

    I watched an episode of MYTHBUSTERS where they plugged the T&P valve and jumpered out the thermostat allowing the water to turn to steam . The resulting catastrophic failure of the water heater was like a bomb going off .
