Canuk and JackShack provide good insight and info.

Bledsoe should follow their points & check out the water heater rescue sight.

i.m. plummin and McDaniel are throwing out all kinds of speculations without first researching the issue.

Before spending big $$$ on expansion tanks, etc. & doing a lot of work that won't solve the problem, bledsoe has to find out WHY the problem exists.

Well speaking on my own behalf ... I was just guessing ( speculating) ... whether or not the suggestions were correct .... I can't say.
I'm thinking the critisisms here are on the harsh side.

Hi, you most likely have a check valve on the inlet side of the water heater. Mine is about 2' up from the water heater. I had to cut out the drywall to gain access. (Backflow preventer)
