      My water heater did not have a TPR valve installed. When I called someone to install one they could not get the plug out. They installed the TPR Valve on the hot water pile just above the tank. Is this legal?

      I didn’t even know you could buy a heater without a T&P.

      Your “plumber” also needs to invest in some larger pipe wrenches.

      As for it being legal, legal is different from safe.

      around these parts (east coast) you could buy a w/h without a t/p up to about 2 years ago (home centers longer)and i’ve seen at least one installed with the opening plugged
