Question about Water Heaters
It is from 2004 new. I live alone so its not like a whole family is using it constantly. Also I had that corrosion rod replaced in it 2 years ago since we have kinda hard water here.
Put a brass garden hose cap over the dripping drain valve.
Call the plumber.
Absolutely the plumber should take care of this for you since the cap has to be tightened pretty tight.
Comment back and let me know what happens.

you can remove it but this will not fix your problem, you must cut the cold side pour in about half gallon of bleach ,drain heater of a gallon and a half first, then pour in bleach wait one hour then use as normal. you will have a bleach smell for some time but this will make the egg smell disapate.try this it worked for me.

Stop wondering, replace the thing and your troubles will be over. Your troubles are inside the tank and not worth even giving it another thought. Go for it!

You are going to have to drain it anyway. So drain it and take the old one with you to get a new one. In case you don't know turn the breaker off before you drain it. If you don.t you will melt the heating elements. They get too hot out of water.

A 10 year old water heater is at the end of its life expectancy. No sense replacing a gas valve to have the tank rust out next month. I'ld replace the whole unit. Also, install a drip pan, under it and a WAGS safety device. Any water in the pan and the WAGS will shut off he Water and Gas. If your water heater has an expansion tank near by, replace that too.
