Drain Your Water Heater for Springtime Care
Do you have a single-storage type of tank? If so, chances are you’ll want to drain your tank. This simple springtime care act can help flush out residual sediment and minerals, which can block your heater from effectively performing its job to the highest standards. Not sure how to drain your specific tank? Check into the manufacturer for instructions on how to do so!
Ensure Your Water Heater Isn’t Leaking
Perform a visual inspection of your water heater when spring arrives. A visual inspection involves looking over the exterior, ensuring that there are no leaks underneath of your tank, and checking for cracks on the surface of the tank. If no visible cracking or leaks are present, you’ll still want to schedule routine maintenance about every two years. If cracks or leaks are visible — contact Mahon Plumbing immediately for repair!
Do Not Repair Yourself
Lastly, do not ever consider repairing your water heater on your own if it is showing signs of failure. Doing so can result in considerable damage that may be even more costly to repair. Rely on the experts at Mahon Plumbing to provide you with a professional evaluation of your water heater’s condition and a solution for repair or replacement instead. In the long term, this can save you from considerable costs from additional damage that may occur from shoddy workmanship.
