Chapter 8 HQS Administration Plan 7/1/09 Pg. 8-30 states...
“Remember that a blocked or plugged pressure relief valve can have
the effect of turning a water heater into a very powerful bomb. There
are instances when an exploding water heater blows, like a rocket, right
through the floors and out through the roof of a house.”
