Hot water tank 78 boler 1700

While camping this last weekend my hot water tank started to leak. Is it possible to buy a replacement cast iron vessel? Can it be repaired, Or am I looking at a whole new unit.
Thanks
Dennis

Have you found where the leak is? It may be a loose connection or a split hose. No idea about getting a replacement tank but if it is a bad tank I'd replace the whole unit. Being the age of your heater a new model might prove a blessing for efficiency.

You might mention the make, model and age (if known) of your water heater. Can't say that I have ever heard of one with a "Cast Iron" tank.
