2 years, 2 different kinds of water heaters, 2 flooded apartments. Last time I was fortunate enough that all the leakage went out the door, but when it happened two days ago it flooded my bedroom and closet during the night. Yeah, that was fun...I step out of bed onto the carpet, squish...what the hell? who peed on the rug? wait..it's everywhere... Basically, whoever is out there designing water heaters, I don't know who you are, but I'm not impressed.
