If the water is coming up, it may be a leaking tank. Have a plumber check it and if it is a bad tank it is under guarantee and Lowes should give you a new heater. You may, or may not, need your original purchase receipt.

: I noticed a leak on top of water heater. Replaced the CPVC 3/4" connector 4 times now, varying degrees of tightness, teflon tape, thread putty. Still have the leak as soon as all faucets are closed and pressure starts to build. Not a squirting type leak, but just a puddle rising from the bottom of the connector on top of the water heater. ? It is a Lowe's model at least 4 years old. 50 gal electric.

: Is there a leak somewhere under the top cover of the water heater?
: Should I just invest in a new hot water heater?
