Water Heater Help Please!! Brandon White M1TW40

Hello all can i possibly get some help with my Brandon White M1TW40 series 40 gallon water heater that sprang a bad leak from the top hot and cold nipples.. I tried removing the nipples but the were so rusty that they fell apart.. Is there a nipple further down in the heater or should i just get a new one.. ?? Please any help will be appreciated...

How old is the heater? From what you describe, I think I would replace it.

I'd replace it too... if it sprang leaks in two places at the same time, chances are as soon as you fix them, there will be two more leaks... this time in the tank, that won't be fixable. Water heaters are 'disposables' ... the newer ones yer lucky if ya get 10 years out of them.

I moved your post to the "Water Heater" forum...
