We have a gas water heater that is 15 years old. Is it normal for there to be a hissing noise coming from the relief valve? Also, the pipe that is hooked to the relief valve is hot. I don't remember it being this way before. Do I need to call a plumber?

We live in California. The pipe through the wall leads outside. And yes, I recently discovered that there's hot water draining out in our flower bed. A plumber is coming in the morning. Thanks.
