Get it checked

I'm with Jay, get it checked. The condensation theory
is a little hard to buy (though I don't claim it's
impossible). As soon as hot water is drawn out, cold
water will begin to enter. The cold will mix with the
hot, then as the temp. drops, the burner comes on.
It seems unlikely that the entering cold water
(which, again, immediately mixes with the hot water)
would be able to chill the outside of insulated
an tank sufficiently to produce condensation; though
maybe if the heater is in a heated humid area - maybe.
The splashing sound is troubling since he tank is never
empty and cold water is internally piped to the bottom
of the tank, i.e. the water inlet is always under
