Portland Plumber: Important to Flush Out Your System

At 3 Mountains Home Services of Portland, our licensed journeymen plumbers are prepared to repair or install tankless as well as standard tank water heaters. However, of the two, we will almost always suggest that our customers choose tankless water heating solutions.

We do this because, with over a decade of experience, we know what works best for our Portland customers. It’s a recommendation we are confident making and feel good about. Here’s why tankless water heaters are the superior choice:

  • Improved water conservation
  • More energy efficient
  • Lower monthly utility bills
  • An endless stream of hot water (no running out)!
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Longer lifespan; better long-term investment

Owners of standard or conventional water tanks have to worry about potential leaks that could cause major household damage. These standard systems maintain a tank full of water that may more easily lead to corrosion, rust, and sediment build-up.

It’s not that tankless water heaters need not be maintained—they do, but they are easier to manage and present far fewer worries.

How Often Should Tankless Water Heaters Be Maintained?

It is industry standard that tankless water heaters be professionally inspected on an annual basis. Remember that we use our water heaters every day; multiple times a day. A once-a-year inspection isn’t too much to ask for such a primary household fixture. The number one tankless water heater maintenance effort is flushing the system.

What is Flushing?

Flushing removes sediment build-up so that only the cleanest and freshest water pumps through the system. Do-it-yourselfers can take a crack at flushing their water heaters, although we always recommend seeking professional guidance.
