Any plumber's in the Ozb smarts bank that can comment with my leaking HWS.
We have a gas hot water storage unit (16 years old) and I have noticed more than usual that the over flow pipe seems to be leaking more constantly.
It normally trickles out a bit and then stops.
I have used the relief valve to let a fair bit of hot water out, but it is still leaking at the outlet pipe at bottom once I close the valve off. Is this normal. Should it not stop dripping.
Might explaim my higher water bill last quater.
Plumbers with ideas. What's the likely cost of a new relief valve.
Thanking all in advance.
