Ack...My Water Heater Sprung a Leak






This should be a minor catastrophe but alas, it is in my Stampin' Space in the basement!!! I had so much stuff out and around, some in plastic buckets but some on the carpet and yes, the carpet was soaked! Guess where my new boxes of catty's were! If you guessed on the floor you would be correct! Good thing for strong boxes and good catalog material. No harm done! Whew! I know my stampers are relieved. Here are a few pix of the disaster and the mess that has ensued. Now I am going to have to pull out the carpet and get something else for the floor. $$$ On the bright side, our schools ended today and I have the weekend to clean up before the post planning days. Guess, what? I am siting here in all this chaos stamping. Stampin' Up! take me away!

I feel sorry about what happened to your water heater. Just a week ago, a friend of mine experienced the same problem, and she's dying to use her jacuzzi now! LOL. Anyway, always take note of your manufacturer's recommendations, guidelines, and instructions when you need to have it repaired, as well as for its proper use and maintenance. By the way, you’ve got an adorable card there, Judi!

You didn't mention the problem of your water heater. Why did it leak? Have you spotted damaged pipes or cables that caused it to leak? There might be some corrosion in some areas of your water heater. You might want to check it out. By the way, how long have you been using your water heater? If you're using it a long time ago, it might be getting old.

Even the smallest leaks can be troublesome. Just look what happened to your basement! Good thing your stamping materials didn’t get damaged with the water. And from the looks of things, it was a lot of hard work fixing the leak and cleaning the basement. Anyway, why did your water heater suddenly start leaking? It would be a good idea to inspect your water heater regularly, so that you can avoid problems like this from ever occurring again.

Judging by these pictures of your water heater, it looks like it’s new and in good condition. Well, this just shows that even if it looks great, your heater can still have problems. It’s important that you perform regular water heater maintenance to keep your heater running properly and efficiently. Simple maintenance procedures are a great help to keep it working at optimal performance for a long time.
