    My water heater has water that is pooling at the cold water inlet and, I thik, the access to the anode. The "insulation" is wet around these areas. The cold water line does not appear to be leaking. It is CPVC plastic. Does this mean the water heater needs to be replaced?

    If there is no leak AT the pipe and/or connection, then yea, the heater is shot.

    Is it a gas fired water heater or an electric water heater?
