2.2.1 - Roof Drainage Systems

Downspouts Drain Near House/Garage

One or more downspouts drain too close to the home's foundation. This can result in excessive moisture in the soil at the foundation, which can lead to foundation/structural movement. Recommend adjusting the downspout extensions to drain at least 4 feet from the foundation.

Here is a helpful DIY link and video on draining water flow away from your house.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. However, if your tank has not been flushed for many years flushing it could cause a leak. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding.

Here is a nice maintenance guide from Lowe's to help.
