I have a gas water heater that is nine years old. This weekend I noticed that the valve where you hook up a hose to drain? (bottom side of heater) was leaking. I tightened it up and the leaking stopped for a few hours but then started again. It is leaking about 2 cups/ 24 hours. The emergency valve does not seem to be leaking nor is the bottom of the heater.
Should I spend the money to call out a plummer to see if the heater can be repaired or do I call home depot and get it replaced?
