I might add, that if your tanks has a leak, or leaks, of sorts, then it's not a big deal to fix.
I had an older 85 TT and found mine was leaking water. So, I removed it and carefully removed all the insulation and then notice a few tiny pinholes and a couple of larger pinholes. Obvious indication of metal fatigue and age.
I use that product by Permatext called COLD WELD and started to cover the holes. Before coating I scratched it up with a fine grade sandpaper just for grip. I would make several over coat patches so to overlap each coat by 50%. I did this after the original coat had cured. Before re-wrapping the insulation I temporarily installed it, filled the water, turn it on as a water heater and waited, waited and waited some more. I drained it, filled it up again and repeated the process. I guess my overkill worked because it never leaked again. I removed the tank and re-wrapped the insulation and was a happy camper after that. Patience is a virtue. A lot cheaper than a new tank or an unknown used tank
