Water heaters are often left running for years without attention, making them easy to overlook. However, a few minutes of water heater maintenance on a yearly basis pays off by extending the tank’s life and ensuring that your water heater is efficient and safe.
Drain your tank and remove debris. Check your anode rod on a regular basis, since it is a crucial component of the water heater. If you detect a leak in your water heater, it might be due to a loose drain valve. Tighten with a wrench until sufficiently firm.
Every six months or so, most home owners should clean their water heaters, yet if your water is particularly hard, you may need to do it more often. Depending on the mineral content of your local water source, flushing your hot water heater every few months might be required.
