Hot Water Tank Service & Maintenance

Many hot water systems have never been flushed.  Why is this important?  Metal oxidization occurs inside our tanks which in time leads to a build-up of corroded metal (rust). So what does this mean for you? 

The built up rust will weaken your tank, poor water quality, failure of heating elements due to clogging and can cause overheating and lead to burnout.  What can we do for you? One way to extend the life of your water heater is for our certified plumbers to flush away any sediment buildup from your water heater once a year. In doing so, this improves the quality of your homes water system and assists with your tanks longevity and operational efficiency.

Also many manufacturers recommend that you periodically drain a tank water heater to flush out the sediment. If you have hard water, periodic flushing of the heat exchanger to remove hard-water deposits is necessary.

Let the professionals at Gas Heater Specialist assist with flushing of sediments from your water heater.

Lighting and Flame Failures

Flame failures can occur for many reasons but most often occur because of electrical issues or gas issues due to debris or soot build up on the burner. In all cases, these problems should be addressed immediately as they can damage the unit.

Anode Replacement Process

Replacing an anode is not a job to be carried out by an inexperienced person. Hot water tanks contain scalding hot water and steam and are connected to the electricity or gas supply. This work should only be performed by licensed and experienced plumbers.

Why replace your Anode?

An anode is a highly reactive metal component inside your hot water system which protects it from corrosion by attracting electrolytes more strongly than the rest of the hot water system. We strongly recommend replacement of your anode every 3-5 years
