This customer had a hot water heater from Rheem and the date of installation was 1984. That was 33 years ago. We installed a new Rheem Hot Water Heater and if the new one performs like this, the customer will not need a new tank until 2050.
This is one reason that we install Rheem hot water heaters. They seem to outlast the other brands.
BTW, the hole in the wall and other plumbing, is not our work. We cleaned up the old work and installed a new hot water heater.
