Questions & Answers

can I place bricks underneath the water heater to keep it off the floor?

will leak detection still work if heater is on top of bricks
Asked by: Purr24
I wish I had installed mine on something instead of just directly in the pan. If there is a leak and it is not raised some water will soak inside the unit and trip the leak detection long after you fixed the leak and dried everything up. A little water split down the side of the unit will trip the sensor.
