    Interesting, but not what I was mentioning. How do these traps prevent/address pressure from building up in the tank? If hot water doesn't have anywhere to go, (no open faucets, can't go back into...
  3. Hot Water Heater - hot water expanding back into cold pipes

    When I run cold water at any faucet, the water gets hot after a few seconds, then gets cold again. I checked for crossed/touching pipes, and heating/defrost devices. None found.

    So I figure that...
