    It would not be unusual here, but every place has different water chemistry.

    Label is too small to read, but the water heater looks very old. In my area it is unusual, but not unheard of.

    You are correct, sir. I stand corrected.

    I had a 2010 heater last week that was labeled installed this year. I reported both the manufacturers date and the "plumber's" label. Old stock is possible, I suppose, but 3 years in the warehouse? Not gonna happen.
