Cool Trick To Finding The Age Of The Home You’re Working In

Here is a cool little trick a student of mine (who used to be a home inspector) taught me.

Many times you can pull up the toilet tank cover – flip it upside down and you will see the manufacture date of the toilet itself (you’ll see the year).

In many cases at least one toilet in the house may be original (doesn’t work on all houses of course) but it’s interesting little bit of info that is most likely nearly useless to you but perhaps it will make you seem really smart to someone in the future!
