Water Heater Flush & Tune Up

Water Heater Flush and Tune-Up in Salt Lake City, UT

Having your water heater flushed and serviced at least once per year is recommended to ensure the system is working properly and prevent minor issues from developing into major problems. Over time, sediment can build up within your water heater and cause performance issues if left unresolved.

Schedule your annual water heater flush and tune-up in Salt Lake City with Friendly Plumber, Heating and Air.


Why Do Water Heaters Need to be Flushed?

Whether you have a traditional or tankless water heater, sediment, calcium, and other minerals can accumulate in your system, reducing your system’s efficiency, increase your energy consumption, and leading to more serious problems like decreased water pressure or even a complete breakdown. Completely flushing the water heater’s tank will remove the sediment and minerals to restore system efficiency and performance. 

Having your water heater flushed annually can prevent serious trouble from ever occurring. Schedule services in Salt Lake City, UT with Friendly Plumber, Heating and Air today.


Water Heater Tune-Up Checklist

During your water heater tune-up, we will discuss any concerns you may have with your system and properly investigate the issue. From there, we will typically perform each of the following services to keep your water heater running properly:


  • Inspect the water heater for any leaks
  • Check temperature and pressure release valves
  • Completely drain the water heater
  • Flush the tank with a cold water supply
  • Test the system’s heating element
  • Check the anode rod
  • Change the system’s flange gaskets
  • Refill the tank and test for hot water


If it has been a while since your water heater has received a tune-up, do not put it off just because things are running well. Neglecting maintenance can eventually lead to a complete breakdown, causing you to replace the system earlier than you would otherwise need to, so call today to schedule your water heater tune-up with Friendly Plumber, Heating and Air.
