Maintaining a water heater only requires a beginner skill set and a couple of hours. A few simple steps are all it takes to extend the life of your water heater.
Why It Needs Maintenance
You don’t notice how often you use hot water until your water heater breaks. By maintaining your water heater, you can prevent a dreaded replacement. A few things that you will want to check regularly are the pressure release valve, the amount of sediment in the tank, and the anode rod. Before beginning your maintenance if you have a gas heater, turn off the gas valve that feeds burner and if you use an electric heater look for the breaker to turn off electricity.
