Is this unit shared with other households? 83 gallons is a lot.
I would say that a 40 gallon fast recovery gas or electric should take care of the needs of a family of 4 or so.
If you do this, you will notice a big change in your utility bill!

If the water heater itself is leaking it most likely cannot be repaired. If it's leaking at the presure/temp relief valve it could possibly be dangerous and needs immediate attention. If it's the pipes leading to the water heater then it's most likely worth repairing. If the tank is old and rusty it's best to replace it. If it's fairly new it might still be under a manufactures warantee. The last I knew Rheem had warantees up to 11 years, depending on the model water heater. With out actually looking at the water heater it's almost impossible to give a more definite answer, I hope this helped.

If it is leaking out the top it would be best to replace it. just check the fittings and make sure they are not leaking and running in the heater. Try to dry it up as much as possible if it is around any fittings.
But if you can see it's coming from the tank it would be best to replace because it will need replacing later even if it could be plugged temporary now.

At the controls there should be a knob that says " Pilot"... "ON" Turn the knob to pilot and hold it down while lighting the pilot lite. Keep holding it down until it gets warm enough that when you leave it up the pilot stays on. Once the pilot lite stays on on it's own turn it to on.
