Water Heater Maintenance Tips for Virginia Beach Area Residents
Check the anode rod at least every 3 years.
The anode rod should be inspected every 3 years and replaced when it has shrunk to about one quarter of its original size. This is very important to avoid leaks in your water heater caused by corrosion of the tank.
How often you will need to replace the anode rod depends on how hard your water is. In most of Virginia Beach area, the water is very hard and your anode rod will probably need replacement fairly often.
Fortunately this is a fairly inexpensive plumbing repair, and can help extend the life of your hot water heater.
Important Tip: Does your water have a nasty odor? In many cases your anode rod needs replacement.
What about the temperature and pressure relief valve?
You may have heard stories about a hot water heater exploding inside a home or business! It is important to understand that a plugged temperature and pressure relief valve on your water heater can turn your water heater into a dangerous time bomb.
It is important to keep your family or business safe by having the T&P valve checked at once a year by a trained plumber.
Here are a few other problems you may notice:
- Strange noises coming from your water heater.
- Gurgling, banging or popping noises.
- Your water is not as hot as it used to be, or maybe there is no longer enough hot water during normal usage.
- Your hot water develops a smelly odor.
- Corrosion or rust around the bottom or top of your water heater
Another major problem that can be avoided with regular maintenance is built up minerals in the heater.
When was the last time you had your water heater flushed?
Hard water scale and mineral accumulations inside the tank or on your electric water heater’s heating elements greatly reduces the effectiveness of your water heater and can reduce its lifespan.
The best way to reduce build-up is have a professional flush it at least once a year. In some areas of Virginia, where the water is especially hard with high mineral content, you may need to flush the water heater more often.
