After finishing the HVAC project at the lake house, I had assumed I’d be done with appliance and plumbing work for awhile. As is often the case with home ownership though, my main house in Verona had other plans. I received an alert from my SmartThings water leak sensor that there was water in the basement.
When I investigated, I found standing water and water coming out of the water heater.
It’s been a weekend of cold showers until the new water heater shows up tomorrow. Thankfully though, the heater was still under warranty, so it will be fairly inexpensive to replace.
