In response to Re: Hot Water Heater Leak
:most of the time around here if you have an electric water heater you are in the country and on a well or a local water co. and 8-10 years is normal for a tank to leak, time to replace it.

I have a Bradford White 80 gal Electric Hot Water Heater (model M-I-80R5SS-12). It was installed with
: our new house in 1992.

: Under the heater there is a circular cutout that is about 4-5 inches in diameter. Water is leaking
: from some type of insulation that is covering the cutout area.

: Any ideas on what may be causing it and what it would cost to replace or fix it ?

: Thanks.
