How Often Should You Flush A Water Heater?
A water heater requires regular maintenance. One example of maintenance a water heater requires is flushing. Over time water heaters build up sediment, calcium and minerals in the bottom of the tanks. These lead to the heater not being able to properly heat the water as well as leaking from the base of the tank. It is recommended by most water heater manufacturers and plumbers to have a water heater flushed once a year. Doing an annual flush will prevent this sediment build up and avoid all the potential problems that come with it.
Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement
Sometimes, when your water heater stops working, a few simple repairs are enough to get it back up and running. However, in other instances, it might be necessary to replace your water heater altogether. If you think there might be something wrong with your water heater, you don’t want to wait until an emergency—like a burst water heater tank—strikes. Instead, call Universe Home Services at the first sign of trouble. We’ll be there promptly and can help you determine if you need water heater repairs or if you should replace the water heater altogether.
Common signs that you need to replace your water heater:
- The water heater is 10-12 years old or older
- Frequent, recurring water heater repairs
- Reduced efficiency/not enough hot water
- Loud, unusual banging or rumbling noises
- A leak or suspected leak in the tank
Other issues, such as a lack of hot water, sediment buildup, or rust-colored hot water from your taps could be signs of a relatively minor issue. It’s best to have a water heater repair professional take a look at your water heater to determine if repairs will be enough to solve the issues you’re dealing with.
