Broken Water Heater?

February 22nd, 2016 · No Comments

Water appears to be flowing out of the garage and down the driveway.  What’s going on?

I stopped by one of my vacant listings a few years ago and saw this same thing.  The water heater had cracked and water kept filling up and flowing out of the tank.  And…kept heating the water, which created a lot of steam and moisture in the garage.  Luckily I discovered it shortly after it happened.  The fuse was turned off, the garage door was opened, the water swept out, and the home warranty company was called right away.  Could have been a disaster with mold & mildew arriving in a day or two if undiscovered.  From then on, I suggest my clients turn off their water heaters in vacant homes.
