Water heater maintenance

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 need to flush the tank and inspect the anode rod each year..

To flush your tank, initially shut 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 not warm, use a garden pipe and pump to drain it. The water originating from the tank needs to be poured into a pail so you can see exactly what color it is. Dark water indicates there is a lot of mineral buildup. This can corrode your tank and cause problems with the temperature level. Refill the tank with tidy water and then repeat this draining process until the water is clear. Eliminate your tube and pump and switch on both the water and electricity so your hot water heater can go back to its normal functioning.
