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.

You can get a sudsy water solution and brush it on all over the place especially around joints and look for a leak via tell tale bubbles. If it is the water heater that has the leak there aren't too many places where you can have the leak and it should not be all that hard to check out.

Hi we have a Ruud monel gas water heater, size 72-60 type m tank size 60 .. problem is pilot light is on but heating burner not igniting , NO HOT WATER


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you have a defective gas control, thats the big metal unit, with the dial on it, it needs to be replaced, no repairs can be made to it.

THIS IS A GAS PRODUCT, INCORRECT REPAIR CAN CAUSE A EXPLOSION, AND DEATH CAN OCCUR. IF YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER TOOLS SUCH AS MANOMETER AND LEAK DETECTORS, I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT A SERVICE COMPANY
