Nine year old gas fired water heater has developed a slow leak, but
enough to get the basement floor wet, at the hot water exit. Appears to
be the main tube running up from the heater, not the union above.
From other postings this sounds like the pipe itself is corroding.
Curious if there are any temporary fixes available that might give me a
few days until I have time to replace the heater?
Sorry, I can't do it all for you....Let your fingers do the walking.
But, as I said, a piece of sheet rubber about 1/8" thick and a couple of
screw band hose clamps will do the job too, and you can get those at any
decent hardware store.
