    Oh fantastic! Water heater leaked and flooded the floorboards! Can't wait to see how bad the damage is.

    So, what's the verdict, @Nifty?

    Did the unit leak or did the safety valve blow? There are bases for water heaters that will handle a water leak for a while.

    Spouse always has complained the bringing water into a house is the worst thing Man ever did. . . just asking for problems.

    The unit leaked and needed to be swapped out. :(

    I tore out a bunch of the soaked floor, replaced the boards, and installed the new water heater.

    Red, I definitely agree with your hubby! :confused:

    Hahahaha, indeed! That's why we tore out a bathroom last week and intend to tear one out next week Water!

    In the newest case, tenants didn't know how to use a shower curtain. The first week after they moved in, the flooring was trashed and they complained the basement ceiling was leaking. Go figure!

    Haha the leaking and water all over the home is a daily soap. After the renovation, everything is under control.
