Prolong the life of your water heater by having it drained and flushed.
Monthly Maintenance Tip
Why do I need to flush my water heater?
Just as your car needs routine maintenance, so does your water heater. Flushing your water heater gets rid of the sediment, calcium, and minerals that build up inside. If the heating element at the bottom of the tank is being blocked by sediment and other materials, then your water heater has to work harder to heat the water. Sediment build up causes damage and it is more expensive to leave it than to just flush it out on a regular basis.
How often should I flush my water heater?
It is recommended that you flush your water heater at least once per year to help prevent the potential problems that sediment can cause.
What problems can sediment and other materials cause?
Leaving sediment and other build up can not only cause your water heater to work harder, but if the build-up gets to be too much, you can start to see it come out of your faucets into the water you drink or into the water you put in the pots you use for cooking. It can even lead to even more serious problems such as loss of water pressure, pipe bursting or even the break-down of the water heater itself.
