        I just installed a hot water heater and I have a leak coming out of the valve going to the output of hot water to the house. It is leaking minutely but I also noticed a decrease in water pressure. I wanted to know when I replace the valve, Should it be with the Y down to the tank or up to the house hot water lines?
