To Preserve the Label Information


When looking for service instructions a few years later, the first thing often needed is the information on the product label or on the paper work supplied when new.
An example is the elusive information on lavatory and kitchen sink faucets. That label or brand name may have deteriorated until not legible or fallen off and blown away in the wind or the paper work supplied has been re-purposed into a mouse nest.

To preserve that information I photo either the label, paper work information or sometimes both and enter that information in a picture folder of that year.

Pictured is a water heater label in which the heater was replaced in 2005 after 22 years so I can delete that unless I want to keep long term records.

Yes
The picture is an actual photo of the label on the water heater.

When idiot manufacturers put a label on the back side of an appliance such as a washer, dryer etc. and you would rather not pull it completely away from the wall to read or photo, take a picture using a mirror and flip it at your computer to right side up.
