Water heater maintenance

Your water heater is the other major home appliance in the basement. This valuable gadget controls the temperature of the water in all of your sinks, bath tubs and showers. In order to keep your bathing and dishwashing routines comfortable and not too hot, you'll need to sometimes do some upkeep on your water heater. To keep yours running and in great condition, you'll need to flush the tank and examine the anode rod each year..

To flush your tank, initially switch off the electrical power and water to the heater. Then wait several hours for it to cool. When you can touch the tank and is not warm, utilize a garden pipe and pump to drain it. The water coming from the tank needs to be poured into a pail so you can see what color it is. Dark water suggests there is a lot of mineral buildup. This can rust your tank and cause problems with the temperature. Refill the tank with clean water and then repeat this draining procedure until the water is clear. Remove your hose pipe and pump and turn on both the water and electrical power so your water heater can go back to its regular performance. You'll wish to let everybody in your household know that they will lack warm water for a couple of hours before hand. For water heater repair work issues, call Midwest Plumbers.
