Water Heater lasted 30 yrs.

Can you imagine a regular water heater lasting more than 15 years!  Well yes, I installed ours in 1981, been draining the unit all those years and I guess it has paid off. You might say big deal...not so expensive but I label everything around my historical house here in Fullerton inside and out.  Built in 1912 it has been a work in progress, firstly renovated in 1978 and now all the modern goodies except the outside looks the same (picture) well nearly. I love to educate my first time clients that doing these little things around the house like of labeling the hoses on the toilets and under sinks can save problems down the road. Washer and Dryer are the big thing as I've had hoses fail and flooded a client's home, big time.  Most city codes require that new hoses (gas or water) be fitted when installing any new appliance.
