Water Heater Maintenance

July 29, 2009



Hot water is something we tend to take for granted. The average life of a conventional water heater (a water heater with a storage tank) is approximately 7 years. Although individual components may quit working properly, the leading cause for replacement is due to ruptured or rusted storage tanks.

What can be done to maximize the life of a water heater?

Flushing the Water Heater
Temperature & Pressure Valve Inspection
Anode Rod Inspection
Dip Tube Inspection
