Do hot water heaters require maintenance?
A plumber should be called to service your hot water heater once a year.
An annual tune-up extends the life of the appliance and raises its performance.
The kind of maintenance your hot water heater requires, however, depends on the model.
Hot water heaters with tanks should be cleansed yearly to avoid sediment accumulation at the bottom of the tank.
The majority of the time, you can accomplish this on your own.
Simply shut off the cold water supply entirely, allow the sediment to build in the tank’s bottom, and then open the drain valve to let the water out into a pail for collection.
The valve must remain open until the water runs clear.
A hot water heater plumber should be contacted right away if you detect a strange odor while the water is draining or if it is still hazy.
Limescale can accumulate in your water pipes but sediment buildup is unavoidable if you use a tankless hot water heater.
White vinegar can be used to flush the tankless hot water heater to dissolve calcium and limescale buildup.
However, because every tankless hot water heater is unique, it’s crucial to adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions when you do this.
To service your hot water heater if you don’t have the instructions, you need to contact a qualified plumber.
How to Recognize a Failing Hot Water Heater
