Ask the Handy Woman!

By Kehli Mason, The Handy Woman, LLC

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this - you haven’t.”  ~Thomas A. Edison

I recently received a phone call from a client who noticed a small puddle of water under her water heater. She was understandably concerned since this was only a three-year old water heater. Generally with water heaters this can either be a bad sign, or a relatively simple to remedy repair. When I got to the job, sure enough, there was a puddle of water about the size of a dinner plate
