There's millions of houses in the USA with hot water heaters that are electric and gas. Never heard of a bad one yet. Yours could be bad right now and you wouldn't know it until your flying high. Wonder how often people actually check their relief valves? Why should this case be any different. I would be more concerned with the casing than the relief valve. When was the last time you checked yours? And even if you check it that don't mean it will blow when needed.

My point exactly. What happens if his tank is weakened and blows before the relief valve opens? Had an air compressor tank blow before the relief valve opened and it did about $25k damage to our house in Bolingbrook, IL

To answer your question, it does come out as one unit, but if it is extremely swollen, you might has issues getting it out as it is pretty tight.

I was referring to your point about the relief valve being defective.
