Leaky Water Heater Expansion Tank
Plumbing leaks are a common defect.  In the photos above the expansion tank on the water heater is the source of the leakage.  Visible corrosion at pipe fittings is a common indication that the fitting is leaking and in need of replacement or repair.  

Expansion tanks such as this one are a common source of leakage due to the weight of the water-filled tank that is mounted on top of the piping without adequate support.  As a result, the pipe is forced to bear the weight of the tank and leakage results.
