Hey all,

My dad and I installed a new 30 gal hot water tank, gas. Everything went well except for one thing.

When taking a shower or using the hot water, you can hear the water heater fire up. Then if you listen to it closely, it sounds like water is dripping inside the tank onto the flame. Sorta if you took a pot and put it on the flame with no water, then put a drop of water in the pot. Thats the noise.

I'm not sure when it stops but it does stop when nobody is using the hot water.

What's going on? Internal leak?
