Hi. I purchased a town house last year. It is totally electric. My hot water tank is in the attic which I hate an am very nervous about the trouble it would cause if it leaked or burst. My neighbor experience this last month. Is there anything I can do to alleviate water damage if this were to happen in my home? What are the maintenance tips if any and are there any signs that it is about to burst before it happens?

There are pans that go under hot water tanks, and washing machines, etc hooked up to a drain so if it does leak it will not cause damage. I would also put a water sensor in the pan so if it was leaking you would receive some type of notification, through your phone????
