Don’t Neglect to do Water Heater Maintenance this Winter

Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Most water heaters are not maintenance free and most people don’t maintain them. This can shorten the life of the water heater and can cause dirty water to come out of your fixtures. Sediment can build up in the bottom of the water heater over time and can give the water an off color, bad odor and bad taste.

Water heaters should be flushed annually and your pressure relief valve should be checked to make sure it is functioning properly. If there is a buildup of pressure in the tank and the relief valve fails, it could cause a serious problem including flooding and in extreme cases the water heater can explode.
