Our home is now a year old, and our water heater is leaking from the top. I’ve removed the PRV pipe and put teflon tape around it, but the leak remains. If water is leaking from the top, where is it coming from?
The leak was detected at the top, but does not seem to be coming from any of the fittings. Water was first visible around the holes for the pipes to connect to the heater. None of the couplings seem to be leaking water from a connection, so I have no idea where the water is coming from. The builder is/was not local, so I don’t know who the sub was on the job, just the manufacturer.
