Forum Title: water heater relief valve question
the pressure valve on my water heater is leaking. plumber is coming tomorrow but I want to stop my water loss as much as possible until he can get here. Will it hurt the heater if I turn off the water supply to the heater?the pressure valve is higher than the upper element so I don't think it will hurt anything (water level shouldn't go below that) but I wanted to check

Done. Water temp seems normal but you're right...Better safe than sorry. Thanks

For your safety, turn off power to the tank and shut off water to the tank

^what he said. It is entirely possible that you have a dangerous situation occurring that the valve is protecting against.
