If you’re a knowledgeable do-it-yourselfer, flush your hot water heater tank annually (check the manual for specific instructions) to remove lime and deposits. These minerals build up over time and impair the functioning of your appliance. If you’re not confident doing the job yourself, have your plumber do it. It may not seem like much, but this simple task will keep your water heater in good shape for many more years.
