How to Take Care of Your Water Heater
It’s easy to forget about your water heater until there’s a major problem. However, a little bit of preventative maintenance can go a long way in boosting your water heater’s performance and lifespan. To keep your water heater working optimally, follow these maintenance tips:
Flush Your Tank
Water is full of minerals and sediment, which can build up in your water heater tank over time. If too much sediment collects in your tank, it could clog or damage your system. Routinely flushing your tank can help remove the sediment and prevent a variety of malfunctions. To keep your water heater in great working order, you should flush your tank at least once per year.
Though it’s certainly possible to flush the tank on your own, the experts at All Pro Plumbing are here to help! We offer fast and affordable tank flushing services, in addition to other preventative maintenance that will keep your entire system operating at its best.
Check the Anode Rod
Anode rods are made from magnesium, aluminum, or zinc. They run down the length of your water heater tank to attract minerals in the water that would otherwise corrode the metal in your tank. Once the anode rod corrodes, however, it stops attracting the minerals.
To prevent the inside of your tank from rusting, it’s important to regularly check on the condition of your anode rod. You should replace your anode rod at least once every 3 years or if your current rod is looking overly corroded. Replacing the rod is a quick and simple process, but our experts would be happy to assist you during a routine maintenance service or system check-up.
Routinely Check for Leaks
From mold growth to structural damage, even a small leak can cause serious problems over time. Taking a few minutes every couple of months to check on the condition of your water heater will help you identify leaks and other issues before they can grow or cause a full breakdown. If you notice that your tank is leaking, then you should contact a professional to get prompt repair services.
Insulate During Winter
Cold weather takes a toll on your entire plumbing system, and your water heater is no different. This time of year, it has to work twice as hard to maintain the same comfortable temperature. Insulating your tank during winter will not only prevent your system from overworking, but it will also increase energy efficiency and reduce your monthly utility bills.
Get Routine Professional Service
The best way to keep your water heater working properly is to invest in routine service from a qualified expert. Certified water heater technicians know how to inspect each aspect of your system to identify potential problems before they can cause a full breakdown. Your water heater should get professional attention once per year, or if you notice any signs of damage or poor functioning.
