Small vertical foundation cracks are normal as a house ages. They can usually be fixed using a quick-drying hydraulic cement, and sealed with a waterproofing paint. Horizontal cracks, however, can be a much bigger problem, often indicating significant shifting in the foundation.
If you ever have to install a new water heater, it is a good idea to purchase a water heater tub. This is basically a round, heavy plastic tub that the water heater sits in. The sides of the tub are about six inches high, and the tubs usually have a fitting to allow the connection of a short piece of garden hose to direct water to the drain. When a water heater fails catastrophically, the bottom of the tank rusts out and can potentially dump the entire contents on the floor, flooding the area. Even a relatively slow leak can cause serious problems if not caught quickly. These tubs are just a bit of inexpensive insurance.
