Water Heater Flush

Water Heater Flushing & Safety Inspection Service

Water heater manufacturers recommend that a hot water heater flush service be performed annually. In some cases, failure to properly maintain your water heater can result in a voided warranty. Failure to flush your water heater regularly can result in large deposits of sediment build up, which could lead to poor water quality higher energy bills and premature water heater failure.

Do you need to flush your hot water heater?

Yes, you need to flush your standard tank water heater on a regular basis. All water has some amount of mineral that can accumulate in a tank. Therefore, flushing a water heater helps to:

  • Remove sediments that can build up and harden.
  • Improve the water heater’s efficiency.
  • Lengthen the unit’s lifespan.

Tankless hot water heaters also need to be flushed, but the process is very different. Contact the experts at Hobaica to learn more!

How often should you flush your water heater?

Typically a hot water heater should be flushed once a year. Depending on where you live, your water could be harder than normal and it might be beneficial to flush it more often. For questions, we are here to help! Contact Hobaica today!

How much does it cost to flush a water heater?

Typically, you can expect to pay between $75 – $100 to have a water heater flushed by a plumber. This service typically includes an inspection and maintenance of the hot water heater that will help it to run more effectively and efficiently. For a more accurate estimate or to learn more about this service, contact Hobaica today!

What does a water tank flushing service consist of?

A hose is connected to your water heater tank and the water in the tank is emptied. Next, the tank is filled back up with fresh water. In the process of doing this, sediment and other buildup inside the tank is cleared out, leaving a clean and clear surface for the heating of the water. In most cases, rods, ventilation and other important parts can be inspected during this process.

How often should I flush my water heater?

Similar to changing your car’s oil, your water heater needs regular maintenance in order to provide top performance. A water heater flush clears out sediment and minerals, such as calcium and lime, which usually builds up at the bottom of the tank and often impede your water heater’s performance. The water heater works harder and requires more time and energy to heat the same amount of water, while subsequently shortening the life of the system.

No matter what your water heater needs, Hobaica has the knowledge and plumbing expertise you’re looking for. Call us at (602) 633-9555 for expert water heater services today.

July '22: Welp, of course the older AC goes out in the Phoenix summer on a long holiday weekend but Hobaica saved our holiday! Called the emergency line and they were able to get a technician (John M) on site within 2 hours. John was very helpful in explaining the situation and helping evaluate the options, very knowledgeable, informative, efficient, and of course top notch customer service.As I've used Hobaica twice in less than a year on two systems, I'll be relying on them in the future for electrical, plumbing, and HVAC needs.Nov '21: Of the 5 - 7 separate HVAC companies that came to give a quote, they were the only ones to provide more than one option based on the specific needs of the space and its use.My only criticism is regarding specifics of installation that I now have questions on, that should've been hammered out beforehand.

J. Miranda was so helpful and replied to our request right away! Called other places for emergency repair on our AC and they wouldn't be able to send someone for 3 days! Anyone who lives in AZ knows waiting that long is not an option especially during the summer! J. Miranda was friendly and took the time to explain what needed fixing. Will recommend! Thank you again!

Great experience receiving estimate. Quick scheduling of service. Knowledgeable service techs. Most importantly, they delivered peace of mind, which can't be purchased.

Great guys to work with. Knowledgable, efficient, professional.A follow up concern we had about our new unit was responded to quickly & well. Nothing wrong with the equipment, but it was retested and we were educated more about our new system by our tech.

Grayson Vu was a very knowledgeable and professional service tech. He was on time and took his time checking things out. He even recommended something to improve our air flow and comfort. Great company and great rep!

John and Jared came out today to take a look at my air conditioning unit. I live in a condo where I can’t see my unit but noticed some water dripping from the roof. They weren’t just on time, they were a little early which helped free up the rest of my day.They found that the system was running as it should be and let me know that the water was dripping because the condensation line was disconnected. Super easy fix with a little bit of glue, and they did not create worry where there was none just to add to the bill.As if that wasn’t good enough, they were incredibly nice and easy to talk to. Not nice because it’s required- just really genuine people. I was not expecting to have such an easy and inexpensive experience in Phoenix during hot, muggy monsoon season. Thank you both for making my day!

We recently had our air conditioning go out on Tuesday and on Friday a new unit was installed. The service has been fantastic. Could not have asked for a faster more friendly company.Zach and Gio were amazing in getting the unit installed and walking us through the new thermostat.

Grayson came out and was on time, and very nice. He took extra time to diagnose a potential problem, and even re-secured some wire mesh (to keep birds out) that had been blown off from the wind. He answered all my questions, will do business with hobaica again.
