IT IS NOT FROM DRAIN VALVE. I CAN'T SE WHERE IT IS COMMING FROM.
well more than likely its comeing from either your cold or hot side of the top of your tank
you can either drain it and replace the fittings or you can just buy a new tank if your gonna repair this i would throw in a new drain watervalve at the bottom but then again there could be so much sediment in the bottom of this plugging this up but that up to you how you want to repair this
CAN I TURN EVERYTHING BACK ON? HOW CAN I CLEAN SEDIMENT IF ANY?
CAN I GET BACK TO YOU LATER?
you say its leaking from the top is it wet by the electrical wires? before you turn the power back on remove the top plate and check to see that its not wet in there check that first ill be gone from 6.00 till about 9.00 i have to go get a MRI done
ALREADY REMOVED THE PLATES. INSULATION INSIDE PLATES WAS WET.TANK HAS TWO PLATES. TOP PLATE WHERE REST BOTTON IS, BOTTOM PART OF THAT PLATE PORTION, WIRES ARE UNDER WATER.
BOTTOM PLATE WIRES ARE DRYED.
I GUESS I SHOULD NOT TURN POWER ON? OR WATER SUPPLY
no thats not a good thing again its up to you what you want to do depending how your money situation is i would replace it 10 yrs is a long time for a water heater
MONEY IS AN ISSUE. IA HAVE VERY LITTLE. RETIRED ON FIXED INCOME. WHERE CAN I GET HELP? WHAT WOUL THE CHEAPEST COST ME? ANY IDEAS?
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP.
