I propose an experiment for the Florida inspectors. They could repeat the tests done by the relief valve manufacturers that show the explosion produced by water heaters when reliefs were not used. This time they can do the experiment with a 3/4 relief line trapped with a gallon of water in the line. You might be able to convince them to stand behind a barrier during the experiment.


Sounds interesting.

What would be a good way to go about setting that up?

Has anyone done any testing with the T&P line full of water?
