What kind of tank, well pressure tank, hot water tank, etc. Pics would help us. Can be anything from leaking pipe connections to a leaking tank. Water heaters often leak at the T&P(temp & pressure) valve, and whne the tank rusts through, from the tank itself.

Hold it closer to the screen so I can see it better. If you can not find the leak and your standing there, how can we?
Post a picture of what you have.

Few people with an actively leaking WH tank have time to post on forums.
Especially follow up questions.

Your time will (almost always) be better spent heading down to the store to buy a new WH.
The "3 Main Things": Same size you have now. A brand name you recognize. 12 year warranty.
