When the water heater is hidden away in a small closet in the back of your home, it can be easy to forget how important this appliance is to your daily life. Well, you only forget until the heater is not working correctly.
As experts in the water heater field, we know that routine maintenance and care are necessary for your water heater to continue to work efficiently and safely. Most water heaters will last years, but neglect can lead to severe issues and potentially complete system failure.
In order for your water heater to avoid serious problems, we recommend two options. The first option is to minimize corrosion. Corrosion is the number one reason most units break down. You can mitigate corrosion in your water heater by looking at other aspects of the home’s plumbing system.
For example, a water softener will help reduce streaks, calcium buildup, and other gunk in your water heater. This buildup of minerals and other deposits from hard water can lead to corrosion and leaking. Most water heaters have an anode rod.
This rod reduces the corrosiveness of water. It attracts particles in the water and is a crucial part of extending your water heater’s lifespan. The anode rod should be replaced at least every two to three years.

Another critical maintenance service is routine water heater flushing. This service is one of the best ways to ensure your water heating system continues to function efficiently. On average, a water heater should be flushed every two to three years.
The timing of the need to replace the anode rod and flushing service makes it ideal to do both simultaneously. Both of these services pose a risk for personal injury. Our technicians have the skills and experience to complete both of these jobs safely and efficiently.
