anode rod can help eliminate the odor problems. Dip Tube . If you notice any leaking around the Water Heater area, repair is likely necessary and may be suspect for replacement. Industry statistics show that the average water heater lasts 12 years.
Since a decaying sacrificial anode rod is one of the most common hot water heater problems, they are relatively inexpensive to replace. If, however, your water heater is leaking, it is usually due to a faulty T&P (temperature and pressure) valve or corrosion.
Check anode rod and replace Drain tank; replace tank if sediment build up is excessive Water heater is leaking (Caution: Do not confuse normal T&P operation as a leaking tank. If the puddle dries up, then look for a T&P problem.) Cold in or hot out joints
Use this guide to check a “Leaking” water heater. Many suspected “Leakers” are not leaking tanks. Often the source of the water can be leaking. *B. The anode rod fitting may be leaking. C. Small amounts of water from temperature-pressure relief valve

By water leaking from the water heater, pressure relief valve, or related fittings. Select a location as centralized of the water heater tank. The anode rod should be inspect-ed every year. If the rod is more than 50% depleted, the
If the valve is leaking, turn off the water heater, water supply and allow cooling action of the water heater tank or even the anode rod. Bacteria can also cause this. The best process to correct this condition is as follows: 1.
