Should there be any water coming back out of the hot water side of the water heater when disconnected?
I just changed out a leaking hot water heater. After shutting off the inlet side of the water heater and draining the storage tank, water continued to flow down out of the outlet hose. I figured this was residual water left in that side of the system and it would stop when it all drained out. It continued for several hours at a constant rate. Is it normal for water to cross over from one side of the system to the other? If not, should it be fixed? and why?
Is the leaking mixing valve causing any problems? Does it need to be fixed?
