This 12 year Rheem made it 1 year past the warranty period. These longer warranty tanks do not have a longer life expectancy than standard 6 year tanks. We were actually called out to replace this tank over a year ago and recommended that they let it ride until it started to leak.
AO Smith water heater installed in this Merriam home. The water pressure was 100 psi so we installed a PRV to lower it to 70 psi. There was also an issue with an outside hosebibb which we were able to fix. When the water was turned back on one of the faucets started to leak. We replaced a seal inside the faucet free of charge to the HO.
