How To Flush a Hot Water Heater?

Plumber

To keep your water heater running at peak efficiency, it is essential to maintain it.

Over time, dirt, minerals, and sediment can build up in your hot water tank. This could cause your heater to be damaged or need to be replaced.

Regular maintenance will prevent the buildup of sediment and prolong the life of your water heater. If you don’t maintain your water heater well, it could lead to the following:

  • Weakness of hot water
  • Heat and efficiency will be affected
  • Your water heater’s lifespan will be reduced and may eventually fail.
