A leak from your T&P relief valve means that there is either a problem with the valve or there is excess pressure inside the water heater due to overheating. An overheating tank may be a serious problem. The valve will need to be replaced, which should be done by a professional to determine if the leaking valve is a safety concern. If you'd like to have a contractor take a look at this, we can help you find one, here.
