Hi Everyone- I'm new to this forum and would be ever so grateful if someone could give me some advice on my water heater issue. I've lived in my home for 6 years and in the process of selling my home. The inspector came in and noticed some rust and corrosion on the connection of my water heater. The water heater is located in the attic and I live in Texas where it's hot and humid. He said that it could be normal but the Buyers want me to fix it. My question is do I need to replace my water heater or do I replace the connections or can I just get a wire brush and clean off the rust? TIA
