The crawl space was all I had left to do at this morning's Nicholasville Kentucky Home Inspection, but I hadn't found the water heater yet. The crawl space entrance was kinda small but I've found an occasional water heater in the crawl space.
Figured that's where I might find this one and I was right.
There it was, the bottom covered in dirt, rusting away.
Here's a closer look. The ground is wet. Water rusts metal.
How long do you think this 12 year old water heater has left before it's don't work so well anymore.
Yup, the serial number tells me it's 12 years old. Serial number started with SE which, according to the manufacturer's website, Bradford White Corporation, makes it 12 years old.
Dig er out and start over!
We won't say anything here about the missing inspection sticker from the state plumbing inspector!
Funny thing is, the seller told the agent there shouldn't be any problems with the water heater as they just had it put in a couple of months ago!
A 12 year old water heater just put in a couple of months ago.
Somebody is doing some wool pulling.
Maybe later I'll hear the tale of who!
