Re: Replace TP valve or water heater?

said by TheSMJ:

I'll still plumb the incoming cold water in through the drain port to cut the dip tube out of the equation

Why? THis just seems rediculous to me and cannot understand why one even consider this.

Agreed. OP's water heater was manufactured during the period (1995) when faulty dip tubes were rolling off the line. Not likely to experience this failure again.

I would agree that it's a waste of time under normal conditions, but since the current water heater is already set up this way, why not?
