Plumbing Maintenance – Water Heater Flush
Why do you get the oil changed in your car? Well, it gets dirty. It improves your gas mileage. It keeps your car on the road longer.
Do you take care of your water heater too? Yes, your water heater should be flushed once a year. If you’re like most, you’ve never even thought about it.
Flushing your water heater will help it last longer and save you money on energy cost by restoring the efficiency of the water heater. Plus, you’ll get rid of the sediment in the bottom the tank. If you have a 15-year old water heater that’s never been flushed, we might find up to 8 inches of sediment! Think about that. Eight inches of sediment means 8 inches LESS of hot water. Plus, your tap water is being heated in a tank with calcium, scale, rust, dirt, and iron. Would you heat water in a tea kettle that had those things in it? Oh, and rotten egg-smelling bacteria can also grow in the tank.
Yuck! Sign me up now to have my water heater flushed!
