Why Do Water Heaters Need Maintenance?

Water heaters are like any other appliance and require adjusting, calibrating, cleaning, repairing, and replacing.

Over time, lack of maintenance can cause problems, including:

  • Sediment buildup in your tank
  • A failed seal
  • Anode rods wear out and cause rust to form

Annual water heater maintenance can resolve or prevent these problems before they cause significant damage to your water heater. In turn, the energy efficiency of your water heater will improve and reduce long-term repair and replacement costs.

How To Flush a Water Heater

Regularly flushing your tank is essential if you live in an area where hard water is prevalent. Hard water is full of minerals that can gradually fill your tank, which decreases the space available for water. As the tank fills, it makes it more difficult for your water heater to heat water.

Flushing out your water heater is a multi-step process that includes:

  • Shutting the gas and electricity off
  • Turning the cold water supply off
  • Opening one hot water faucet in a sink or bathtub
  • Attaching a hose to the drain cock at the base of the water heater
  • Positioning the hose to drain to a bathtub, outside drain, or buckets
  • Draining the water until it runs clear
  • Closing the valves and disconnecting the hoses
  • Reconnecting the water supply and refilling the tank
  • Closing the water heater drains
  • Turning the gas and electricity back on
  • Testing the system to confirm the tank is clean

Signs You Need To Maintain or Replace Your Water Heater

Most traditional tank water heater and tankless water heater problems don’t usually result in sudden failure. Often, there are subtle but clear indications that your water heater is failing and requires immediate maintenance. If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, we recommend scheduling a service right away:

  • Corrosion on the tank or components
  • Inconsistent heating capacity
  • Inconsistent water temperature
  • No hot water through taps
  • Discolored water
  • Cloudy water through taps when running hot water
  • Leaks
  • Gurgling or bubbling sounds from the tank
  • Noxious odors
