Damaged water heater pipe
With everything going on in your day-to-day life, it may be easy to forget, but leaking hot water heaters can lead to many horrible problems.
The most common and obvious problem that can be attributed to a leaking hot water heater is water damage to the surrounding floor and walls. This sitting water and an oftentimes warm garage creates the perfect environment for mold growth, which can cause various health effects. Another major problem that a leaking hot water heater can cause is flooding in the basement or crawl space, which can ultimately weaken the foundation of your home.
