I inspected a Rheem water heater yesterday with the following serial nimber - C-0460-12717
Following the format in determining the age of a Rheem water heater I came up with April 1960. This thing is so clean and in pristine shape on the exterior. But I notice there is no plug on top, and the vent hood feels heavy like cast iron or steel.
Any comments? The man who lived at this house, I'm told, always took care of everything or had it serviced religously. It seem like this thing can last another 20 years.
