Toilet: Water valve leak

Recommended Posts

The water hookup valve leaks when hot water is just about up to temp, it seems to quit when the water gets up to temp & the heater shuts off - it doesn't seem to leak if the heater has to kick back on. Could it be pressure build up in the hot water tank? Has anyone ever had this problem &/or can you help Me?

Turn off your water source (pump or city water) open the hot water tank relief valve and let about pint to drain or what ever will. Close valve turn on water, fire up heating element. Check your HWT MFG WEB site. If contues to leak, replace the valve.
