Did you know that it is recommended that you flush your water heater annually? As water is pumped into your water heater, so are sediment, dirt and other minerals. So, flushing your water heater gets rid of these extra “ingredients”. If left unchecked not only can it make your water heater work harder but also allow your tank to rust and slowly be eaten away until you need to replace the entire unit which is very costly yet easily preventable. So, go get that hose, bucket, and gloves and flush your water heater.
