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.

We had a new HVAC system installed. We have used Hobaica for several years and have always had a very positive experience. Special thanks to Andy Hobaica and Jorge Valenezuela for the making this such a smooth process from HOA approval to final installation!

I am new to the area and have never worked with Hobaica before but glad I did. Ryan Waters was prompt and very professional. He answered any questions I had and was thorough. I will definitely call Hobaica again for any AC, heating, and plumbing needs moving forward.

Professional and personable service from the on-site estimate with Andy to the completed install with Jorge and a 2nd tech. I purchased a new, 2 stage heat pump and scheduled for install 2 weeks later. Techs were on time, professional and nice to work with. They were extremely proficient and fast, due to their length of experience. Although the install was just completed today, I am very satisfied and do not expect any problems with either the unit or services provided. Highly recommend.

Over the years, Hobaica has installed two great HVAC systems on our home. So when our daughter bought her first home and needed service, we chose Hobaica. Technician Simon Peterson came out, assessed the unit, performed maintenance, and provided detailed alternatives to improve things. He communicated clearly and patiently and was a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.
