Find the leak. If it's just the drain plug leaking, see if it has a rubber hose washer in it - could be a simple fix. But if the tank itself has a crack or hole in it, go to any home improvement or hardware store and get clear GE silicone (not latex or silicon/latex caulk). Thoroughly clean and dry the plastic around the leak. Apply the silicone. If you can force a little into the crack or hole itself, do so, then run a thick bead of silicone over the leaking area and spread it out gradually so it feathers out to about 1/2" on all sides of the leak. Clean your fingers or tools with paint thinner. Let it dry a full day before you test it out. Good luck!

How do I find the water leak in Emerson insinkerator H770-SS


The use-and-care manual says that the 'product will eventually fail,' and to install a drain catch pan.
The product has stainless steel tank with 3 year warranty. 1-800-558-5700.
The manual does not show parts diagram, element, or anode rod. This indicates that operation is inside a sealed 1-piece unit not meant for repairs.
High clorine content of water, and hard water, and water pressure over 80 psi will adversely affect any tank heater, and shorten lifespan causing probable leak.

Turn off power:
If you can remove cover from H770, then inspect 750 watt element for possible leaking. Then replace with new element of unknown type if element is leaking.
If leaking is coming from the tank itself, then the unit cannot be repaired. This is true for all tank water heaters.

I have a Rheem 40 gal. tank that is leaking water front the top where the vent stack is. It is pouring out. Can it be repaired?


A leaking water heater cannot be repaired, assuming it's the tank leaking and not nearby water pipe.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-heater-leaking.html

First thing is to protect your property from catastrophic tank failure where tank ruptures and water runs until it is shut off:
Tanks are under pressure when they are hot.
Close cold water shut-off located above tank.
Turn control knob to 'pilot' so pilot is lit but burner will not turn on.
Open hot side on tub for few moments to relieve tank pressure.

Now your property is safe.
You need a new water heater.
In mean time, gas water heater makes 41 gallons hot water per hour.
Shower used 5-9 gallons hot water.
Bath uses 10-15 gallons hot water.
You can turn on water heater for short stretches and limp by until you get a new heater.

Leeking water from bottom


I wrote a page on leaking water heaters with resources and information:
Page lists things to check.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Water-at-bottom-of-water-heater.html

Also run hand over tank to find warm spot that says where leak is coming from
A rusted tank cannot be repaired.

If your tank is rusted out, it might burst open and flood the area.
Hot water inside tank is under pressure.
Turn off heat source to water heater.
Turn off water valve located above tank.
Open tub faucet on hot side and relieve pressure from tank.

You can limp along with a leaking water heater by turning it on when hot water is needed.
For example a shower uses 5-9 gallons hot water.
Turn gas water heater on for 15-20 minutes.
Turn electric on for 20-30 minutes.

My Rhem Ruud G76-200 water heater leaking from below? Can this be repaired?


If it is actually leaking from the bottom of the heater, then it cannot be repaired. Have you looked to see exactly where the water is coming from? Sometimes a leak at the top of the heater, will then leak through the insulation and out the bottom. Another possible source could be from the temperature/pressure relief valve leaking and coming out of the down pipe that goes near the floor or drain. Try to find the source of the leak. It is not practical or safe to repair a tank that is leaking.

Leaking fuel tank at seam under tank


That is the easiest leak to fix. You have to get a can of POR brand, tank repair. Remove the tank, drain it, dry it, I think you have to wash it with soap and water, dry it again, they give you instructions, mix up the paint, pour into the tank, let it cover the whole bottom, sides, and seam, and top too, and make sure you don't clog up any lines or vents, wait for it to dry, you will have the nicest looking finish inside your tank, hard as a rock, and will never leak again. I did my rust bucket Harley, the whole tank, came out beautiful. Then my Ducati sprung a leak right where yours is, and I did the same thing. It works great. Try POR.com.

My 2000 Frontier v6 has a small leak or 2 at the top of the gas tank. can this be repaired or do I need a new tank? thanks


If the tank itself is leaking, replace the tank. If it is a seal for the fuel pump or other, replace the seal.
