Hi all - first post.
I'm an IT guy, but can do some no-brainer type activities - changing toilet, shower heads, replacing faucets etc - nothing that requires touching gas or sweating any pipe.
I removed an old toilet & shower head (doing some bathroom tiling & green board in my shower). It took me a few days to get the toilet in and in that time my TPR on my gas hot water heater started leaking. I have a bowl under it just in case, but it was filling it up in a 24-hour time span.
The TPR valve was replaced in July 09, and had been fine until the toilet removal.
I put the toilet in, but not the shower head & then read something, somewhere about 'if you haven't done any plumbing or renovation work, it's probably a bad TPR.' I temporarily put the shower head back in, ran hot water out of all my outlets - and it seems as if the dripping has lessened. Coincidence? Think it'll stop all together?
Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks!
