While Hubbard Plumbing specializes in a number of different different services, including water heater installation and repairs, we encourage our customers to perform regular maintenance on their hot water systems. As with any other major appliance in your home, your hot water heater requires regular preventative maintenance in order to prevent major failures. Performing regular preventive maintenance on your hot water system can help you avoid frequent costly repairs and helps extend its lifespan. One of the most important pieces of maintenance to perform on your water heater is to flush it out every so often.

In order to keep your water heater functioning properly and to avoid a malfunction, you will want to take some time to flush it out. Typically, you water tank should be drained about once a year. Minerals, along with other debris and sediment, can build up inside your water tank and if left unattended, they can reduce the efficiency of your water heater. More importantly, the build up of this sediment will eventually cause it to completely malfunction. Draining your water tank every so often can help mitigate the build up of these particles so your water heater runs more efficiently for a longer period of time.
