Two Simple Ways to Make Your Water Heater Last Longer
Water heaters are responsible for many conveniences of the modern home. Warm soothing baths, hot showers, and hot water to clean your dishes and speed up cooking are just some of many ways your water heater makes your life easier. These units are not cheap and cost between $900 and $3,000 for a residential unit with repair work costing anywhere from $350 to $600 depending on severity of damage.
Besides cost, the inconvenience of a broken water heater means having to take cold showers, something that’s just uncomfortable.

Perform a Flush
Before beginning the water heater must be powered off from your fuse box and your water supply should also be off. While it may sound like an easy DIY process improper drainage could cause damage to your floors or the valves on the heater and cost you more money to fix. Contact a licensed plumber who has the necessary tools and experience to safely flush your heater.
