      My hot water heater has sounded like it has water running through it all the time…like it is constantly filling up. NOW it started leaking up at the shut off valve that comes out of the wall. Lucky me got to go out in the rain at 3:30am to shut the water off to the house….where is a man when i need one??? PLEASE HELP! Do I just need to change out the shut off valve or is the heater itself possibly bad????

      Do you have any pipes running underground, is your toilet running, and that valve sounds like packing nut is leaking, if so just needs repacking and tightened.
