Thanks guys. Just checking in with my housemates regarding costs. Will respond to all messages asap :)
This is the drain line for the Pressure and Temperature Relief Valve (PTR valve). You cannot cap this off. This will cause the hot water unit to over-pressurise and can result in the unit exploding. The PTR valve has most likely reached the end of its service life and needs to be replaced. I can diagnose this problem for you and replace the valve if necessary
