Question about Water Heaters
Hello paul... these hot water tanks should actually get thorough cleaning every 6 months, most do not get a look until they don't work. Once you have all of the soot out of there use compressed air to clean each of the vents.
Next, clean the vent pipe and inspect that vent or chimney all the way to the roof and out. If it is needs a cleaning do so. The moisture can be a sign that the vent pipe is partially blocked.
Once all of that is attended to, then since the pilot is working, fire it up. The moisture you have noticed in there could be the result of a hair pin leak or 2. That small amount of moisture should not be a problem.
