Water heater flush

Water Heater Flush & Safety Inspection

Water heater manufacturers recommend that a water heater tank flush 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 heater flush 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.

Why should I have my water heater flushed?

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.

Our AC blower motor broke twice since mid-June. Hobaica came to replace it twice since then. However, we noticed that our AC wasn't blowing enough air as it did previously, but all technicians from Hobaica couldn't figure out what was wrong with our system or even claimed that it was working properly. Our system could not maintain the set temperature during the afternoons and was constantly running, causing abnormally high electrical bills. Finally, after multiple technician visits, Binh T came and found out that the blower motor was not programmed properly and replaced it with a new one for the "third" time. Our AC is finally blowing sufficient amount of air from the vents!! Thank you so much, Binh T, for being professional and knowledgeable on this matter! We cannot thank you more.

Travis did a great job replacing the Moen cartridge in my shower. He even offered to install the escutcheon, stop tube and handle that I expected to do myself. I appreciated that. Travis is professional, does high quality work and is an overall great guy to work with. It was a job well done.

Travis did an exceptional job of installing my new WiFi thermostat and made sure everything worked before he finished the job.
