We will discuss the importance of water heater flushing and how our approach can help your system perform better.

What is a Water Heater Flush?

A water heater flush is a routine maintenance task that removes sediments and mineral deposits from the tank. This process typically involves draining the system to eliminate debris that can settle at the bottom over time. A water heater flush improves the efficiency and performance of the appliance by preventing sediment buildup. This buildup can hinder heat transfer and reduce the heating element’s effectiveness. 

In a routine tank flush, the technician begins by shutting off the electric or gas supply to the water heater. Once the unit cools down, they find the drain valve at the bottom of the tank. They will use the pressure relief valve to empty the contents of the tank and let the water flow out.

Once all the water comes out of the tank, the technician can now flush the tank. By letting water run through the tank, mineral deposits and sediment will flush out. After the water has flushed the water heater enough times, the technician will close the valves and turn the water supply back on.

Why a Water Heater Flush is Important

  1. Maintaining Energy Efficiency:

Our team recognizes that sediment acts as an insulator, impeding the heat transfer process within the tank. Through a tanked water heater flushing service, the technician removes this layer. Allowing your system to operate at peak efficiency. Significant energy savings and a reduction in your utility bills ensue.

  1. Extending Lifespan:

Sediment buildup often contributes to corrosion, a common culprit behind leaks and premature water heater replacements. Regularly flushing helps prevent corrosion, ensuring your water heating system enjoys an extended and productive lifespan.

  1. Enhancing Water Quality:

We prioritize the quality of water that flows through your home. Sediment in the tank can impact water quality, leading to strange color and unpleasant odors. Flushing your system eliminates debris and sediment, providing you with water that’s not only hot but also crystal clear.

  1. Preventing Clogs and Damage:

Sediment-related clogs and damage are potential headaches for homeowners. Flushing prevents plumbing issues and safeguarding the overall health and performance of your water heating system.
