23 year old tank

23 year old tank

I’m replacing my hot water tank on Saturday, April 20/2019. I know most tanks don’t last very long maybe 10 years maybe a little longer if you're lucky. Well the one I’m replacing is a Giant and this year it will be 23 years old. I’m very lucky to have it last that long. The only problem is I’m having to adjust the knob to keep the water hot while in the shower. And I only drained it once since I moved in 15 years ago. The date on the tank is 95/09/06. I’m not looking forward to replacing it but don’t want to come home to a disaster someday. Hoping my new one will last half as long. And sorry but the new one is not a Giant. When I tell people how old it is they laugh and tell me how lucky I am it’s lasted that long.
