      Gravty maks the water flow downhill. Yuo might need a tank to letr water expand as it heets up.

      pull the little plastic cover from around the factory installed drain and check the threads, as well as the factory installed T and P valve, anode rod and maybe where the gas valve is screwed into the tank. ..sometimes even the factory screws up!
      and check the discharge of the T&P valve because of thermal expansion…
      I think thats what NICK is saying…HAHAHA!
