Yes… Robinson Iron CAN restore that old cast iron water heater! It’ll be just like new!
At least, it will LOOK that way!
Our team has re-created and restored a lot of historic pieces, but never before had we attempted refinishing a water heater. However, the good people at Rheem asked us to give this antique they had a shot.
We cleaned the oxidation off of the cast iron, removed old paint from the copper and thoroughly rehabbed the entire piece. Once primed, we carefully put all pieces back onto the water heater and highlighted the raised areas and wording in gold paint.
The ol’ beauty may not be functional, but it will rest proudly in a new office build for Rheem as a tribute to water heater days gone by!
