Any help getting an age of a Clayton and lambert hot water heater? Just curious at this point.
My guess would be 2012 but it sure looks older than that.
Ancient, probably original to the home.
You’re joking right? Just because you see a 12 in the SN you honestly think it was manufactured 9 yrs ago lol ?
And your guess?.. yup I thought so ZERO. I have no information on this water heater and I’m not familiar with the brand. So when was in manufactured?
Well, if we’re guessing, I’d say 50+ years old.
It’s old. Old enough I’ve never seen one.
The home was built in 1958. I’m guessing it’s at least that old.
21st week of 1927
They waited 31 years to install it.
It sat in the supply house for 31 years
Just wanted to see what would happen.
I guess I’m not good at playing WAFI… … …
FWIW, any time I see a metal manufactures data plate I known it’s more than 30 years old. Many times the unit is 40 to 50 years old. All I or my client needs to know is that the unit is way past it’s design life and replacement should be anticipated.
I would agree, However most likely this old WH (Work Horse) would outlast any (replacement) unit manufactured today.
Agree… especially when the metal data plate and manufacturers medallions are affixed with ‘screws’, and then later followed by rivets, ie. 1960s-1970s!
