That is just the opposite of what I do and have done for years on the rare occasion that the relief valve seeps.

My house at Toronto had the same issue of water dripping slowly from the tap, what I did was just consulted a professional in commercial plumbing and mechanical services, Professional Plumbing Services in Toronto | Green City Plumber who sorted out the problem by replacing the valve connecting the tap as there was some sort of trouble in the valve which made the water to drip slowly rather than the normal speed. Hope they can help you too.

Slow drip from hot water tank release valve

The issue reported here was weeping at the pressure release valve. Household hot water heaters don't normally blow off their pressure valves (although it's there in case it's needed). These small RV units heating 6 +/- gals. in a tight space may weep a bit as indicated. It can be stopped or reset from time to time.
