Your water heater is one of the most-used systems in your Hill Country home, and just like your heating and cooling system, your water heater needs annual maintenance to keep it operating at peak performance. Over time, sediment (the matter that settles and builds up at the bottom of the water) can build up within your water heater which causes performance issues, and if left unaddressed, can lead to early system failure.
Whether you have a standard or tankless water heater, sediment, calcium, and other naturally occurring minerals will accumulate in your system. Since the water in the Hill Country is naturally high in calcium and magnesium, our water is typically hard. In fact, Texas has some of the hardest water in the country, and when you have harder water, the rate of sediment buildup in your water heater increases. As part of our annual water heater maintenance services, we will flush the system to remove as much sediment as possible.
While we are flushing your water heater, our licensed plumber will inspect your system to determine the condition of the components and check for safety issues.
This vital water heater service will help keep your system operating efficiently to increase the availability of hot water, decrease energy use, help ensure safe operation, reduce breakdowns, and promote longer water heater life.
If you are not 100% satisfied with the service we have provided, we will refund all of your money. If our technicians smoke or swear in your home, are not drug tested, do not wear shoe covers, or leave your home without cleaning up, you do not pay for the service.
Although a tankless water heater does not have a 40-75 gallon tank of water (which, by the way, is the perfect place for sediment to build up), water does go through the system, and as it passes, it leaves particulates behind that will cause a sediment buildup. Sediment buildup is even more damaging to tankless water heaters, as it collects on the components that heat your water.
