Why is my hot water heater leaking from the copper pipe on the side?
I'm most interested in knowing if this is something that I can repair myself quite quickly or if I need to replace either the heater or some part on the heater.The water heater is a Power Miser 9 (30 gallon); model 153.337363. It looks like it may have started leaking only in the last few days. We only noticed it this morning. We've been using the heater a great deal in the last 60 days. The amount of leakage filled up a 5 qt pan in 20-30 minutes. The
water is leaking directly onto the basement and there is no drain, so it's puddling on the floor. I believe this may be the discharge pipe.
