Preventive Maintenance Services For Water Heaters & Tanks

Hot water tanks in our area typically have a 12-15 year lifespan due to the prevalence of hard water in our water supply, meaning water that is high in dissolved minerals such as calcium and magnesium. While hard water can provide both benefits and problems to humans that drink it, over time, the minerals inside produce a considerable amount of wear and tear to the inside of your tank, especially to the anode rod.

Like any other part of your home, your hot water tank needs ongoing maintenance to keep it working effectively. Luckily, the pros at Hot Water Heaters Now have all the tools and know-how to keep your hot water tank healthy for as long as possible.

Once we’ve determined the scope of the repairs required, we’ll visit your home to complete maintenance. Most procedures involve flushing the tank and maintenance to the anode rod in order to prevent corrosion. First, we empty the tank, refill it halfway, empty it again, then refill it again. This process typically takes about one hour. We will then perform maintenance on the anode rod. If necessary, we will replace the existing anode rod with a new one.
