In order to keep your bathing and dishwashing practices comfy and not too hot, you'll have to sometimes do some maintenance on your water heater. To keep yours running and in excellent condition, you'll have to flush the tank and check the anode rod each year..

To flush your tank, first switch off the electrical energy and water to the heater. Then wait numerous hours for it to cool. When you can touch the tank and is no longer warm, use a garden pipe and pump to drain it. The water coming from the tank needs to be put into a bucket so you can see exactly what color it is. Dark water implies there is a lot of mineral buildup. This can rust your tank and trigger issues with the temperature level. Fill up the tank with tidy water and after that repeat this draining procedure till the water is clear. Remove your pipe and pump and turn on both the water and electrical power so your water heater can return to its normal functioning.
