Tell me about my water heater:


What surprised me was the price ($169 installed). 50 years later the calculated value is $1,270.00 (according to one website that calculates that sort of thing).

Tell me about my water heater:


My guy quoted $950 to install a new Bradford White one. Of course we are talking a 10 year product here instead of a 50 year one ha.

Not only do I have to decide whether or not to pull the trigger on a new one, but whether or not I should have him take the old one with him or cut it open to see how much copper is in it.

Oh come on. You know you got to keep it and cut it open to let us know.

We want to know, we want to know.
