maybe a leak
 
the other day I was fixing drywall near my water meter and noticed the red triangle leak indicator slightly moving when the water heater clicks on. I checked it a few more times with all water in the house turned off and sure enough a little water flows when the heater goes on. There doesn't seem to be any water leaking from the 40 gal gas unit. Is this normal??

If you have an expansion tank near your water heater, the heated water may be going into it, allowing a little fresh cold water to flow into the heater tank.
