Re: water heater leaking
The valve you're referring to is the Temperature/Pressure Relief Valve ( TPRV )

I have a sneaky suspicion your water pressure may have changed with the repaired water line. Check the water pressure ---- if it's over 65 lbs you might need a Pressure Regulator Valve ( PRV ) for your home water feed line.
Or you may require an expansion tank installed at the water heater.
