T&P Valve Test Handle

A client of mine removed his hot water tank T&P valve test handle. He was afraid the kids might play with the handle and burn their feet. Does anyone see a problem?

Only if you test at an inspection. I don’t want it to stick in the open position so I don’t operate them, just see if they are there.

Yes. Children old enough to reach a TPR valve should be old enough to be taught not to play with it. Recommend replacing parents with ones that can teach responisibily and disipline.

Gotta luv it well stated.

Kids can be taught responsibility…and they can be disciplined. They cannot be taught good judgement…kids will be kids…

Tony N. Let me baby sit for about one month and I will show you good judgement:p :slight_smile:
