Best Water Heater Buying Guide - Consumer Reports
If your water heater has a 12-year warranty and it’s been in service for 15, it might be time to get a new one. In homes with soft water, which can be tougher on water heaters because of its corrosive effect on the sacrificial anode, a water heater may fail within the warranty period.

If you haven't replaced your water heater in a few years, you'll find more choices—and more energy-efficient regulations—so do your homework. You may have to spend more up front for a model that will save you money over time.

Water heating amounts to nearly 20 percent of a home's energy costs. As the result of new efficiency standards, water heaters under 55 gallons will see about a 4 percent boost in efficiency, while water heaters 55 gallons or more may cut your utility bills by 25 to 50 percent depending on the technology used.

It’s wise to consult a professional or a manufacturer to fully understand the new regulations. Note: We don't currently have Water Heater Ratings, but are able to offer this buying guide, which contains helpful tips and adv

The Lost Lingo of New York City’s Soda Jerks - Gastro Obscura
Foppiano was a “soda jerk,” one of half a million employed at tens of thousands of soda fountains across the United States in the 1930s and 1940s. They had white coats, swift fingers, and even swifter tongues—indeed, their linguistic concoctions were as much of a draw as the sweet treats they served up. Foppiano himself, the paper reported, got a special shout-out in a university English course on American colloquialism after a professor ordered a large cherry coke and heard him shout back: “Stretch one, paint it red!”
