We take our water heaters for granted every time we turn on the hot water for showers, to wash dishes, and to clean our clothes. If properly maintained, hot water heaters can last between 8 and 10 years, with the newer tankless water heaters lasting even longer.

Why You Need Annual Maintenance on Your Hot Water HeaterHaving a professional plumbing company like Plumbing Concepts in Southern California service your water heater each year can extend the life. Here’s how:
- Tank Water Heaters – The tank-style water heaters gather sediment build-up that needs to be flushed from the tank at least yearly. Having sediment in the tank can affect efficiency as well as hot water quality by interfering with the heater’s ability to warm the water. Plumbing Concepts has factory-trained technicians to help keep your water heater in tip-top shape. By routinely replacing the flex lines and flushing the water heater to prevent corrosion, and so any issues can be detected and prevented before it leaks and causes damage.
- Tankless Water Heaters – Plumbing Concepts also offers the yearly maintenance of tankless water heaters. Since there is no tank, there is no chance for sediment to gather, however, these units need to have the lines flushed to remove the hard water and limescale build-up that often accumulates in pipes and prevents the water heater from working properly.
