SOURCE: turned off the hot water
It sounds like two problems.
Problem 1) Clog inside faucet or clog inside pipes at faucet
Remove supply tubes leading to faucet and see if problem is inside pipes or inside faucet.
My bet is clog inside faucet.
If you have galvanized pipe that meets copper pipe, this can be trouble spot.

Problem 2) Water heater leak ... you say tank valve is leaking? Is that cold-water shut-off valve? Or tank drain valve? Or TP valve?
If cold water shut-off is leaking, then replace shut off.
If tank drain valve is leaking, then check if plastic valve is cracked. If drain valve is cracked, then replace with a brass valve from Home Depot. If plastic valve breaks off, then use hammer and screwdriver to gently chip out the broken plastic valve. New valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe. If valve is just dripping, then put garden-hose cap over end of valve and screw down tight.
If TP valve is leaking, then replace with same temperature and pressure rating. New TP valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe.
Problem 3) If pressure is low all over house:
Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.
Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
Open faucet and check if pressure drops. This says if problem is inside pipes that enter house.
Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
This says if pressure problem is before -or- after water heater.
If problem is before the water heater, then shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
If problem is after water heater, it could be in hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.
Remove hot water line leading from water heater and check pressure. This says if problem is where hot water leaves tank.

The use-and-care manual says that the 'product will eventually fail,' and to install a drain catch pan.
The product has stainless steel tank with 3 year warranty. 1-800-558-5700.
The manual does not show parts diagram, element, or anode rod. This indicates that operation is inside a sealed 1-piece unit not meant for repairs.
High clorine content of water, and hard water, and water pressure over 80 psi will adversely affect any tank heater, and shorten lifespan causing probable leak.
Turn off power:
If you can remove cover from H770, then inspect 750 watt element for possible leaking. Then replace with new element of unknown type if element is leaking.
If leaking is coming from the tank itself, then the unit cannot be repaired. This is true for all tank water heaters.

Probably debris from old filter got trapped in the line.
If the insinkerator has aerator, take that off and flush out debris.
Otherwise, the line will have to be taken apart and blown out.
