It is normal and desirable this valve allows a small quantity of water
to escape during the heating cycle. However, if it discharges more
than a bucket full of water in 24 hours, there may be another
Try gently raising the easing lever on the relief valve for a few

This may dislodge a small particle of foreign matter and clear the
fault. Release the lever gently.
Steady flows for long period (often at night)
This may indicate the mains water pressure sometimes rises above
the designed pressure of the water heater. Ask your installing

EXPANSION CONTROL VALVE RUNNING
If an expansion control valve is fitted in the cold water line to the water

instead of the temperature pressure relief valve on the water heater. The
benefit is that energy is conserved as the discharged water is cooler.
NO WATER FROM THE HOT TAP
No flow of water from the hot tap may indicate a restriction in or failure
of the cold water supply to the water heater. Check for water flow at
other taps and that the cold water isolation valve (refer to page 32) is
