Expansion Tank on Water Heater

I just found a pin hole in the expansion tank on my water heater. Is it something I can wait until tomorrow or do I need to do something now.

You can wait until tommorow. The tank controls thermal expansion. I would probably turn the water heater to pilot until you get it replaced. You dont want the relief valve letting loose in the middle of the night.
