Water tank replacement or repair

Hey guys. I have a water heater about 18 years old and have a bit of a leak. What do you guys think, replace or repair? I am leaning towards replacing, just b/c the tank is old. While I don't want to spend unnecessary money, maybe it'll just be a matter of time.. Also, any recommendations for companies in the Markham / Richmondhill area? Thx.

Replace it. I am not even sure if you can fix a leak on a water heater (it might be wrong though) but at 18 years do not spend money to fix a leak. That tank had a good life, let it rest in peace now.
Try not! Do or do not, there is no try...
