Essential Water Heater Maintenance: Enhancing Longevity and Performance

Anode Rod Comparison

Maintaining your water heater is crucial not only to ensure a consistent supply of hot water but also to extend its lifespan and efficiency. Here are the key maintenance steps every homeowner should consider:

1. Annual Flushing of the Water Heater

Over time, sediment builds up at the bottom of your water heater, ranging from minerals to rust. This buildup can lead to inefficiency and corrosion if not regularly cleaned. An annual flush of the tank helps remove these sediments, ensuring your heater operates more efficiently and lasts longer.

2. Checking and Replacing the Anode Rod

The anode rod is essential for preventing corrosion in your tank. Traditional water heaters feature a sacrificial anode rod, usually made of magnesium or aluminum, which corrodes over time to protect the tank. It's typically recommended to check this rod annually and replace it if it is more than 50% corroded.
