Water Heater Woes!
Did the insulation around the tank get wet,,,inside the outside metal??Did that make sense?? anyway it could take a long time for the water to 'dry' out of a flood situation.Continue monitoring it to SEE whats what. IF its in an unfinished space with a floor drain that WORKS very little danger!!
Biggest question,,,does the valve at the top of the tank(pop-off) ,,,is that plumbed down to almost floor level?? OR just blow off to the side 5 foot high where it could burn or harm you or a child?? It helps in the sticky valve of NOT spraying the whole house area!!(or bottom of heater.) Its a DIY job at best,easy and cheap,,,make it so you can reuse that part on another replacement heater
