Lifespan of a water heater

When we moved into our house, the inspector told us the average lifespan of a water heater is 10 years...and ours was about 10 years old. My planner hubs put it into the 2010-2011 budget and we hoped, maybe he is wrong and it last 20 years!

Well, we (and by "we" I mean Jarrett) came home last night to a wet basement from a broken water heater! It's failed us. And the inspector was right. 10 years on the dot.

However, if you are wondering, the worst part is not the money we have to dish out..but rather the ICE COLD shower I took this morning and will be taking tomorrow morning until it is fixed. Imagine the ocean in New England in May and add ice cubes and that's what it was like.
