Can a hot water heater T&P valve be used on a hot water boiler? The boiler currently has pressure relief only.
Thanks

    NO, water heater tank relief valves have too high of a pressure setting, maybe 150 PSI. at that pressure your boiler could launch itself as a missile thru all vertical layers of your house.

    30 PSI is the max for most residential boilers. Pressure relief only. Temperature is controlled/monitored by 2 or more safety devices internal to the boiler system.

    Don't just match what was there, go to the manual, put in the one it calls for, if you have any question at all in your mind....does it have a low water cutoff...
