90% of the question is about the local water qualityWhen would you replace a water heater
I tried putting off replacing my AC until after labor day, but when all the freon they installed on a Friday was gone by Sunday, it was not to be.I'm proactive when it comes to things like financial planning, but
totally reactive when it comes to end of life of water heater, furnace
and appliances. The 3 times I've had to replace water heaters may
have been rushed but, far from traumatic, so I see no reason to
change. Any savings I may have had by getting things on sale would
be, I think, more than wiped out by replacing things that would have
lasted a lot longer.
BUT!! I really should start changing the anode. OK, I'll do it this year!
I am glad to see I am in such good company!!Mine is original to the house built in 2002.
I’m pushing my luck, especially with a weird problem that keeps reoccurring with it.
I should get around to changing it out sooner rather then later.
It hasn't been delivered yet, but they sell Rheem.What kind did you go with?
