Repair a cold water leak at the bottom of my water heater

Hi -

If your water heater is working (ie: making hot water) then most likely your heater isn't leaking. Rather, the leak is coming from the cold water supply and running down the tank where you see it at the bottom of the tank. A working tank that is leaking would produce a leak of hot water - not cold. You should carefully check the cold water piping for a leak, drip or stream of water and make the required repairs.

My hot water heater is leaking from the bottom

Well Faith, you're probably going to have to give us more info before we can get too exact, but I can tell you if it's leaking from the very bottom then you're going to wind up with a new heater soon. It's the only part of the heater that can't be repaired, plugged, welded, etc. When it starts leaking, that's the kiss of death.

Leeking water from bottom

I wrote a page on leaking water heaters with resources and information:
Page lists things to check.

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.

To conserve resources with next heater:

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.

I own a Rheem Power Vent with powerglo ignition system - model # 21 vp50-1 50 gal, serial # rn 089d06577 ---i've noticed water on the floor around the water heater, i thought maybe the tank was rusting out...

The plastic drain valve is a possibility. Also the Temperature/pressure relief valve is typically piped close to the floor if there is a drain near by. People tend to ignore water heaters. The TPR valve really should be excersized annually. If it won't re-seat, then it should be replaced. Second the tank should be partially drained annually to drain any solids that have accumulated in the bottom over time. If you don't do this frequently the drain valve can become almost impossible to operate.
