Water wont stop coming out of the overflow part of the hot water heater. What should I do?
I think you're talking about your water heater's T&P valve. That is a water heater safety device and if water is overflowing from this part, you need to call a plumber ASAP. If you can, turn your water heater off at the breaker box while you wait for your plumber
