Get Proactive About Prevention

Follow some of these maintenance tips in order to keep your water heater not just running, but performing well and for years to come:

  • Believe it or not, many homeowners don’t know exactly where their water heater is located. If you have recently purchased a home and have yet to locate your water heater, take the time to do it now. That will also give you the opportunity to make sure there is a clear path and no debris nearby.
  • Now that you know where it is, make sure you know how to turn off the water supply. This will help you in the event of an emergency.
  • Drain or flush your water heater each year. This helps it perform better and also helps you determine if there is any sediment buildup.
  • Schedule a complete inspection each year, too. Let a professional make sure that everything is working the way that it should be. This is the perfect time to make minor adjustments or repairs that will help your system perform better.

If you really want to take good care of your water heater, make the company you call for service be Franklin Plumbing & Drain Cleaning. We take this line of work seriously, including offering the best possible service to every customer we work with.
