Question about Water Heaters
If it is the pipe leading in or out, you can repair it yourself with a torch and solder, after draining the pipes and turning off the gas.
If it is the tank itself, you will need to replace it. The tanks cannot be reasonably repaired, so replacement is your only option. Legally, you must call a certified gas fitter (or plumber with a gas ticket) to handle the removal and replacement.
I suggest shopping around yourself for a heater as prices vary widely, and plumbers generally charge more than a home improvement store like Lowe's or Home Depot. Have the heater on hand when the plumber arrives and it will be a very quick job.
