Briggs water heater date

Recommended Posts


Briggs Manufacturing was a subsidiary Walters Corp and was bought by Celotex around 1972. That year or the next, Celotex was sued by a bunch of folks for asbestos exposure and around 1990 - 1992, depending which reference you look at, Briggs declared bankruptcy. So, by anyone's estimation, it's at least 17 years old.

When I get one that old, I tell 'em that if they call me the next day to tell me the tank had failed since I'd left the home I wouldn't be the least bit surprised.
