: Is it easily possible to replace what seems to be a leaky drain valve
(slowly dripping) in a hot water heater tank? Is that what's pictured in my link? Is it even worth it when the top of the tank is corroded (although it seems to be coming from the pipe
and not eating thru' the metal at all) like this
? This thread
says don't mess with it. And right, you know: T'anks for the help.

Bonus question worth one No Prize: Why is it that there seems to be no pressure relief valve
on the H2O pipe that feeds the tank, nowhere to divert the water to a hose or a drain? Is that replaced by the lower valve I'm talking about?
