Home inspection revealed that our TPR Pipe on the hot water heater was too short as it stops 18 inches above the floor. We need to fix it so that it is within 6 inches of the floor. I am hoping I can fix it by adding more copper pipe cut to length attached with shark bite push to connect fitting. Is that an acceptable fix? We are trying to avoid cost of hiring a plumber if possible.
Please note, the pipe originally comes out of the top of the water heater, so a straight tube replacement will not work unfortunately. Thanks!
