I'm sure REW will chime in about repairing his neighbor's leaking hot water tank using just mud and grass from his garden.

Stay tuned ! ! !

My electric cold water heater leaked when I was about 2 months from having natural gas available.

Welding stopped 1 leak, but a weak spot started leaking a week before gas was available.

During that week I worked out every day at the YMCA, mostly for the hot showers.

Any time that a leak is found in a water heater - turn off the water inlet and the water outlet to the water heater and live your life.

If you choose to just continue on with no hot water - fine. The closed valves on the heater will prevent water damage in the locale of the heater.

If you decide to replace the heater, by all means carry on.

If you decide not to replace the heater, the turned off valves on the heater will insure that no damage is caused by the leak.

If there are no shut off valves on the heater - "shame on the person that did the heater installation."

Please replace - do not repair the heater.
