    Talking Poor Cat

    Can't have a BM without the possibility of getting scalded to death.

    Redneck emergency drain pan maybe?

    I never thought about it until I saw your picture. Will a TPR valve work the same no matter what its orientation? Obviously a bad one will leak no matter what its position, but will it function as intended and will its service life remain the same?

    The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.

    That shouldn't be a TPR valve. It may just be a pressure relief valve. TPR should be installed into the water heater tank. I'm sure the valves would work no matter the orientation, but it would be hard for the valve to drain down hill all of the way if it was starting out upside down.

    Sure looks like a TPR.

    That is a TPR.

    That damn cat should be tied up and held in place under that sucker...

    I can't stand a damn animal that will make a public desplay of licking their own arse then hawk-up a hair-ball!!! Well, duh!

    I still like using them for garage door testing...

    It is a T&P, it should be a pressure relief only.

    Unless that is the only T&P, in which case it is in the wrong place and will not work as designed or intended.
