Many public buildings such as hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, restaurants, personal residences are at risk. Any building that
uses a stored water heater is flirting with disaster if the system maintenance is ignored. Plumbing systems have changed due to
code requirements to keep the water safe for drinking! Thermal expansion is addressed in an assortment of literature but  the vital
Combination T&P Safety Relief Valve is mostly ignored. The T&P Relief Valve protects the public by venting the water heater if
pressure builds up and this avoids a steam explosion which rockets the water heater through roofs.  Schools must perform Safety
Valve Re-Inspection to ensure safety by following manufacturer's literature. It's the law!
Water heater emergency safety valves must be maintained.
