Noticed this morning there is a little water under the water heater. Also heard water running outside. Seems hot water running out the overflow pipe on the outside of the house.
Turned off the water heater and the main faucet outside. the water stopped running outside. With the heater off turned on main water, water now runs out of overflow outside. Why?
I assume I need a new water heater. Called around to plumbing places around here. They want $695 for a 40 gal LP WH and $150 to install.
HD and Lowes want $288 + tax for a 40 gal water heater. Lowes said it was a Whirlpool didn't ask HD probably the same. My gas co. says if I buy one from some place else, they will install for $150. My gas company wants $595 for a 40 gal water heater plus $150 installation.
The WH I have now is a 30 gal Hedges installed by gas co. 12 years ago.
My question is does anyone know about Whirlpool WH. Hard water here in Fla. 1 person house not a lot of hot water used.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
