My hot water tank has been turned off for three weeks as I am away. Upon returning home, I notice some water in the bottom of the drain pan. What does this indicate?


I would never turn it off. Only down or to vacation mode. It may just be sweat. If the water goes away and stops in a day or two, it probably is. If not, you have a slow leak that will only get worse.
