water heater

tpr valve. does the tpr valve have to be visible 6 inches from the bottom of the drip pan in the same room? or can it go out to the exterior and terminate within 6 to 24 inches from the ground?

If it is an older installation, it can go outside. Here is Florida it can still go to the outside, but they want it to be visible near the water heater, so they have developed a coupler system to meet the code (which does not function properly but makes them happy)

well this is a new home that i bought. And i thought that it suppose to be in the same room to… thanks
