The heater started leaking out the bottom, so I turned off the electrical power and shut off the water to the heater. Unfortunately, that caused the shutoff valve to start leaking too. The shutoff valve is located on the pipe just above the heater, so the shutoff valve is now dripping water onto the top of the heater.
Until I can get a plumber to sort all this out, are there any other steps I should take?
