The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men…

Last week, we finished looking up all the entries in the water heater contest, and placed a phone call to the lady whose water heater came out on top to let her know that she won! She was SO excited, and so were we – our first contest was in the books and we got to make somebody’s day! So we filmed the short video that we released last week and scheduled a crew to go out and prep the water heater for replacement.

Maybe we got a little too excited, because when our crew arrived they discovered an error that originated in the office during the review of entries and skewed the age of the water heater and made it NOT, in fact, the oldest among the entries we received. In famous cartoon dog words: “Rut roe…”

Our Plumbing Manager, Rob, knew there was only one right thing to do. So we’re giving away TWO brand-new water heaters! Our originally announced winner will still receive the prize, and so will the owner of the actual oldest water heater (and yes, this time we sent someone out to double-check before making the announcement!).

So congratulations to the Seminole family of Springfield, and the Scott family of Aston on being the winners in our first Oldest Water Heater Contest! Thanks again to everyone who entered or was cheering on someone who did, we really enjoyed the opportunity to interact with so many of our customers and it turned out to be a great learning experience as well!
