    HW pressure release valve

    Has anyone had the hw pressure release valve go off? Quite a shock at 3 AM.

    Never have. I imagine it would scare the poop out of me at 3am. I know the hw heater doesn't have any user adjustments for water temp. I wonder if it could have been related to pressure from heat or just water pressure? Too technical for me. I'd try replacing the release valve as they're pretty cheap.
