I'm not a plumber, but here is my thought: If the leak is coming from a threaded fitting to or from the heater, you could use it. But that's not likely. Usually when a water heater leaks it's from something inside the heater, mostly a damaged trank. Or maybe corrosion. Regardless, the tank then has to be replaced. Of course if it's under warranty, you should contact the installer.
Yes. If the pipe is over 1-1/4" I would also apply the tape AND an approved Pipe Joint Compound over top of that.
Yes, functionally this will work. Our first choice will be the yellow PTFE tape which will indicate for an Inspector that the line is a gas line. Only difference is the color of the tape and sometimes a slight difference in density.
