Having a functioning, healthy water heater is crucial to the comfort and health of homeowners. Hiring water heater maintenance and making water heater repairs when needed is essential to adequate housekeeping. We’re going to go over some general steps to how water repair is conducted.
If you want to extend the life of your water heater, it’s imperative to order maintenance for it at least once a year. A beginning step to maintaining your heater is to check for leaks and make sure airflow is not being disrupted in any way. Then, you’ll want to test the pressure and temperature relief valve.
There are just a few materials you’ll need for keeping your water heater in good shape. Among these are a garden hose, a bucket, a 1-1/16″ socket, a 1/2″ drive socket wrench, a breaker bar, a screwdriver, needle nose pliers, Teflon tape, and a few cleaning wire brushes.
