Even though you can't afford it, I would suggest calling a plumber. The fact that the original problem was never fixed, could have caused an element to start leaking, and if so that would be the cause of the water, not a leaking tank. An element can be fixed fairly inexpensively. As far as repairing a leaking tank, you would have to take it completely apart to find where the leak is and then put it back together again before you could see if the leak was fixed. Figure on spending about three days at least doing it.

: My hot water heater kept shutting itself off for a period of time. Now it is leaking from under the hot water heater. Does this sound like a problem that will require replacement, or can this be fixed? If it can be fixed, how would I do this? I read an article that said something about applying "liquid rubber". Will this help or solve the problem, or would this be a waste of my funds. I am really needing an inexpensive fix due to budget constraints. Please help!
