If you notice water pooling near your appliance take the time to do these four things:

  1. Inspect the device (valves, tank, pipes etc.) to visually locate the leak. Dry any damp spots thoroughly and check back in a few hours to see if they are damp again.

  2. Once it is obvious that the device has a leak, turn off the power source to avoid accidents.
