Plumbing Contractors Offer Water Heater Maintenance & Repair Tips , Norwood, Ohio

Hot water is a savored luxury, and to facilitate access, you need your water heaters to function well and stay in good shape. Here at Allied Reddi-Rooter, our plumbing contractors offer everything from water heater replacement to sump pump repair, and we provide service to the greater Cincinnati area. Our company's experts say there are steps you can take to avoid plumbing repair and ensure your water heater delivers the performance you expect.

Here are some tips provided by our plumbing contractors to keep your water heater in prime shape:

  • Keep The Area Around Your Water Heater Clear: If your heater is gas-fired, it will need oxygen to generate gas. Nearby clutter will impede the heater's ability to access oxygen. Reduced oxygen will result in inefficiency and may even damage the heater's burner chamber, necessitating a visit from the plumber and costly plumbing repair.

  • Drain Or Flush Your Water Heater: Use your heater's drain valve to drain a few gallons of water from the unit at least once a year. Utilize a garden hose or a bucket, and remember that hot water can kill grass—run the water to a location where it won't cause damage. If you notice lots of sediment and debris during this process, hire a plumber to provide a full flush.
  • Perform Annual Inspections: At least once a year, check your heater for leaks and corrosion in the pipes and valves. If you have a gas water heater, inspect the gas line for corrosion and wear. Scrutinize the thermostat and the area surrounding it in your home. If there is black residue or charred metal, that indicates combustion issues that require plumbing repair.
