Hi all. I looked at the water heater and it had rusty water dripping from that top screwed on plate thing and it smelled like something was/had burned. I called Scooter (our friendly appliance repair guy) and he came right out. Seems the water heater had developed a leak at sometime and now the whole thing is burned up (more unofficial lingo…sorry). Bottom line is that we need a new water heater.
Just wanted to update y’all.
