Our Water Heater Maintenance

Close view of a plumber's hands as they begin maintenance on a water heater.

When you request water heater maintenance, we’ll inspect your water heater and identify issues that need addressing to avoid unexpected breakdowns. Whether you own a tankless or traditional water heater, our technicians can perform the services you need.

During your appointment, our plumbers will:

  • Drain and flush the tank (if applicable) to remove hard water minerals and sediment
  • Check for leaks and other issues
  • Inspect the connections, electrical components, and the pressure relief valve, which is a source of leaks
  • Adjust the water temperature and pressure valve (T&P) to ensure pressure can escape if necessary
  • Inspect and possibly replace the anode rod if it shows signs of corrosion as it attracts mineral deposits
  • Verify accurate thermostat settings are between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit

Water Heater Maintenance FAQs

When should I schedule water heater maintenance?

We recommend scheduling annual maintenance. If you live in an area with hard water, have a professional flush your tank twice a year to reduce sediment buildup.

Why is my water rusty?

Brown or rusty water is a sign of sediment buildup in the tank. Other signs it needs a flush include foul odors or strange noises during operation.

Can I flush my water heater myself?

While a water heater flush only takes about 60 minutes, we highly advise hiring a professional to perform this maintenance task.
