How to Maintain Your Water Heater

  • Flush the Tank: Sediment can accumulate in the bottom of your water heater tank, causing it to work less efficiently. Regularly flushing the tank once a year can help remove this sediment and keep your water heater running effectively.
  • Inspect the Pressure Relief Valve: The pressure relief valve is an important safety feature that prevents your water heater from exploding from too much pressure. Inspecting it once a year and releasing it can help ensure that it’s in proper working condition.
  • Check the Anode Rod: The anode rod is responsible for attracting corrosive elements in the water and protecting your water heater tank from rust. Inspect it once a year, and if it’s worn down to less than six inches, it’s time to replace it.
  • Insulate the Pipes: Insulating the hot and cold water pipes near your water heater can help reduce heat loss and reduce energy consumption.
  • Schedule Professional Maintenance: It’s recommended to schedule professional maintenance services every year. A licensed plumber can inspect your water heater, perform necessary repairs, and offer recommendations to extend the life of your water heater.

  • Can I repipe my home myself?
    While it is possible to repipe a home yourself, it is not recommended, as it can be a difficult and dangerous process. Repiping a home requires working with water and pipes, which can easily lead to accidents if not done correctly. It is best to leave this job to the professionals.
  • What should I do if my water pressure is low?
    If your water pressure is low, you may need to call a plumber to have your water pressure checked. Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a clogged water filter or a leaky faucet. It's important to address low water pressure as soon as possible, as it can lead to water waste and increased energy costs.
  • How often should I clean my drains?
    It is recommended that you clean your drains every six months. However, if water is backing up into the tub, sink, or toilet in your home when you flush it, then you need to call a plumber right away to clean the drain. If water backs up into your sink then it's probably coming from your shower and vice versa. Cleaning out the lines will prevent water from backing up into your home.
  • What is the best way to clear a clogged grease drain?

    There are a few effective ways to clear a grease-clogged drain.

    • Use boiling water and dish soap to break up grease buildup.
    • Pour water mixed with baking soda into the drain, then pour vinegar on top of it to get a chemical reaction that breaks down grease.
    • Drain cleaners can also remove water buildup and hard water scale.
    • Plumbers recommend using a water-powered mechanical drain cleaner to clear clogs altogether. These machines are easy to use and clear away any type of clog quickly.

    For a badly clogged drain, you may need to hire a professional plumber that can clear out the drain with special equipment.

  • What are the different water heater sizes?

    Water heaters come in a variety of sizes, and the size you need depends on how much water your household uses. Here are some general water heater size guidelines:

    • If you use less than 40 gallons of water per day, a 40- or 50-gallon water heater will be large enough.
    • If you use between 40 and 80 gallons of water per day, a water heater with a capacity of 60 or 80 gallons will probably be required.
    • If you use over 80 gallons of water per day, an 85-gallon water heater should provide an adequate supply.

    Note that these are general guidelines only; how much water your household actually uses may vary. To be sure you have the right water heater size, consult with a plumbing professional.

Signs That Your Water Heater Needs to Be Repaired or Replaced

  • Lack of Hot Water: If you’re not getting enough hot water or it takes a long time to heat up, this may indicate a problem with your water heater.
  • Strange Noises: If you hear popping or banging noises coming from your water heater, it may be a sign of sediment buildup or other mechanical issues.
  • Water Leaks: Water leaks around your water heater tank may indicate a crack or a loose fitting.
  • Rusty Water: Rusty or discolored water coming from your hot water tap may signify that your water heater tank is rusting and needs replacement.
  • Age: The average lifespan of a water heater is 8-12 years. As your water heater approaches this age range, it’s important to consider replacement before it breaks down unexpectedly.
