Corrosion is one of the most common issues that plague water heaters. The good news, however, is that you can effectively prevent corrosion from building up in your heater just by following a few easy steps. In our many years of providing quality water heater repair in Wilton, CT, we at JNR Plumbing have helped numerous clients keep their heaters in tip-top shape.

Here are a few things you can do to stop corrosion buildup in your water heater.

Observe Regular Maintenance

Maintenance is the most important thing. You need to maintain your hot water tank properly and regularly to avoid issues that can force you to have a water heater replacement–particularly damage due to corrosion. It is very important to keep an eye on it so that you don’t run into any major trouble down the road. Have it checked at least once per year by a certified plumber.

Drain the Tank

Unless you have a tankless water heater, you will need to drain your water heater regularly as part of your maintenance scheme. Doing so will keep minerals and calcium deposits from accumulating and settling in the tank where they can cause damage down the road. This is particularly important if you are situated in an area that has rich mineral deposits in the water.

Check For Knocking Sounds

Loud, banging sounds such as knocking or popping are indicative of mineral deposits in the water heater tank. The sounds are a result of the minerals hitting the walls of the tank. In addition to the noise, minerals can also make your water heater smell bad and you will need immediate water heater services.

By following these steps, you can keep your water heater corrosion-free. For top-quality water heater services ranging from water heater installation to maintenance and repairs, turn to JNR Plumbing.
