What is the average life cycle of Rheem hot water tank?
Posted by Kay on December 19, 2003 at 21:56:25:

I would like to know what the average (if there is such a thing) life cycle/span of a hot water tank.

I have: Rheem 50 RUUD Professional Grade tank (50 galon, gas). It now produces less than half of its capacity, and, it was installed just over 7 years ago. (I had an extended warranty that covered 7 years, but it expired about 23 days ago.)

Is it normal for this kind of tank to end its life cycle at 7 years?

Thank you for any input.
