You have sure signs of Water heater rusting out. I would say because of the age of your unit 10 years is pretty max and if not now inthe very near future. I would put a garden hose to waterheater hose bibb and try to drain and catch water and if ther is an abundance of red or dirty water I would consider replacement.

SOURCE: Is the American Standard G50T
Generally, they are a your normal low end hot water heater. I have seen American Standard units last up to 20 years (like mine) with not problems, and I have seen them not last three years before the tank ruptured.
We have more calls on the Rheem and Brandford Whites than American Standards as far an minor problems.
Pros: Cheap; reasonably reliable; parts readily available.
Cons: Not energy efficient; tank quality - flexible.
When mine goes would I replace it with another American Standard? No, I would install the Bosch tankless water heater.

Sounds like an old water heater, full of rust at bottom. maybe coming to end of its life. Think new if over 7 years old. Did you replace anode rod? Probably shot also. Good Luck...
