      The T&P valve on my gas waterheater drips constantly,I replaced the valve with a new one of the proper rating. It actually started to drip worse then, until I lowered the temp setting a notch, which is not high to begin with. The previous owners had it in stalled in 1998, I would hate to have to replace a waterheater thats only 3 years old, is there anything I could try to fix this problem???

      Either you have a Pressure Reducing Valve on your supply line and do not have an expansion tank in the system, or your house pressure is too high and you need a PRV and an expansion tank.
