It looks like to me that maybe AO Smith makes it because the Sears Power
Miser 12, 80 Gallon looks very much like the AO Smith Conservationist 80
Gallon. The specs also match up fairly well.
Thanks in advance for your knowledge, wisdom and recommendations.

Well Look at out Gubberment as you say and ask me as we get every dollars work
of product we buy with bidding out the jobs and contracts to the lowest bidder.
We bidded out the space shuttle to the lowest bidder and bid out the $4.00
O-Ring that blew up the space shuttle years back.
The Next time you get on air plane. think about this. Every engine , nut and
bolt was bid out to the lowest or cheapest bidder. Now if the plane crashes , do
worry for the companys that bid that low made a lot of money to buy good life
insurance on a crash and have to pay your family for not seeing you again.
Yes, It is good to give the job of taking care of your life to the cheapest /
Now Perce , For real the federal government does not take the lowest bidder in
most all bidding. they throw out the highest bid and the lowest bid and pick
from the middle bids. They are not stupid at all either for they know what the
top bid and lowest bid is coming from.
Having worked on the program I can tell you that STS (the acronym for
the shuttle's official name, the Space Transportation System) has always
been a cost reimbursement type contract, not a fixed price one. The
winning bid on most subsystems is awarded to the contractor who
demonstrates the best overall solution (considering technology, life
safety, maintainability, and yes, cost) for a given component.
Many of the systems we sold to commercial airframe manufacturers were
purchased because they were the most accurate for navigation, saved
fuel, had lowest maintainability cost. Purchase price has some
influence on the purchase decision, but it isn't the only criteria.

Find the model number. The first few numbers (usually with a period or
space after) of the model number designate the manufacturer.
