I wrote “disco era”.

Once a water heater gets to a certain age, it’s kinda pointless to get picky about ± a decade or so.
Sort of like almost nobody puts 50 candles on a birthday cake except as a joke.

Next time you want someone to give you the correct info, try just asking instead of playing games.

The exact date does not matter in the context of my report. I did indeed write “disco era”. The ANSI stamp on label implies post 1979, but the serial number could be interpreted as the 23rd week of 1963 unit #113. I shared the photo in the spirt of lighthearted amusement, not to burden anyone.

I would guess mid to late 70s based on the vibe :slight_smile: My record is 1984 for a confirmed date. I look forward to seeing a groovy sticker

Based upon the BLOCK like letter “E” and the tails of the “G & Y” … I would place it as manufactured between 1978 and 1980. Then seeing the almost closed “C” it would likely have been produced on the early morning shift … between 7am and 8am.

I would have said the “Laverne and Shirley” era, just so I did not box myself in :smile:
1976-1983
