“I had Harris Plumbing install a Navien tankless water heater for my home and was very pleased with the workmanship of the installation. Jef was very thorough and his main concern was to make sure the job was done right. [Harris Plumbing] is a very courteous group of employees and I definitely made the right decision contacting them to do the work in my home.”
Hot Water Heater Maintenance
In addition to installing new hot water tanks, we can also help to maintain the one you have to extend its lifespan. Your hot water heater should be checked every year, including flushing it out and testing the elements to make sure they’re still working at maximum capacity, because if they’re not, you will pay more for hydro and your water will not be as hot as it should be.
This includes possibly replacing the sacrificial anode, which is a rod inside the tank that is there to corrode first so that the tank interior and fittings won’t. If the anode is eroded (or completely gone), the inside of the tank will rust out. If the tank rusts out, it will leak quickly or the bottom could completely fall apart causing a flood. If you are asleep or not home to notice this and turn off the water supply to the tank, the water flow will just keep trying to fill the tank and a costly flood will happen.
Having professional plumbers drain and clean your hot water tank every year will prevent sediment from forming. If sediment gets too high, it can completely cover the bottom element, leaving only the top one working. That again means wasted hydro and money with warm water that’s not hot, and you’re running inefficiently, not to mention the sediment taking up room in the tank, thereby reducing your hot water capacity.
At Harris Plumbing, we have removed hot water tanks from homes with up to 12 inches of sediment inside! It takes two men to remove it due to the extra weight, and that is also an extra cost to you, so servicing your hot water heater annually is important to save you money and save your water heater for a long and efficient lifecycle.
