I have water in the junction box on top of my hot water heater and into the electrical conduit leading to the hot water heater.

I do not see your earlier post with photo.

The problem could be the conduit.....
-disconnect the conduit and wires from water heater
-run wire into a junction box set lower than top of water heater... -then run another #10 wire from the junction box up to water heater...
-So if water is coming from conduit, it will accumulate into junction box and not in the water heater wiring cavity.

Next thing....
... a water softener can cause rusted tank.
-Softened water adversely affects anode rod...
-causing anode rod to deplete faster...
-once anode rod is gone, then tank begins to rust.
-Here are details for checking anode rod each 2-3 years:

Water heater leaks

You have to replace water heater.
But you can buy-time if leak is small by turning heater off except when you need hot water. This will give you 30-60 days to shop and find best heater.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Leaking-water-heater.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-install-gas-water-heater.html

To prevent tank from rusting in this manner, inspect and replace anode rod each 2-4 years, and keep water pressure below 80psi.

I have a warrior glass hot water heater.model number 71-305.serial number r 0590822159.wattage 240 volts ac only. 30 gallon.the water pressure is low.drained tank to clean out.still having problems.any...

Buy a pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.

Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
This will tell you if the pressure problem is before -or- after the water heater.

If problem is before the water heater, then the shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
If problem is after water heater, it could be in the hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.
