Maintenance Tips

1. Flush your water heater every year (or more often). New installations automatically join our Flush Reminder Program. We will call you every year on the anniversary of your water heater install to remind you to have it flushed.

2. Check the pressure reducing valve every six months. This valve regulates the water entering your home from the municipality. Your home water pressure should be between 45 to 75 PSI. Pressure above 75 PSI can damage your home plumbing system and cause your water heater to leak prematurely. This will not be covered by the tank warranty.

3. Add safety upgrades. These include:

  • Tank Pan
  • Expansion Tank
  • T&P Relief Valve
  • Earthquake Straps
  • Water Leak Detector
  • Carbon Monoxide Detector

4. Check your plumbing for leaks and cracks. Add food colouring to your toilet tank to check for cracks in the porcelain. Inspect the drains under your sinks to check for any ageing or cracks on the plastic pipes. Test your fixture shutoffs by turning them counter-clockwise to ensure that they can properly control water flow to your fixtures. Read more tips on our blog.

What Our Customers Have to Say!

“I recommend Water Heater Rescue to everyone. With several plumbing issues, my spirit and budget were stressed. They saved the day. I received exceptional customer service, reliable technical services, and all for incredibly reasonable rates. They are professional, friendly, and ethical at all fronts. I’m so pleased to recommend their services. Thank you again, Valerie! and the team at Water Heater Rescue!”

Alisha K. • Home Owner

“My power vented water heater suddenly stopped working and needed replacement. Water Heater Rescue was able to quickly give me quotes and options over the phone. Their prices were on par or better than other companies and they were able to install the heater sooner than other companies. Water Heater Rescue had great customer service, and also called me prior to the apt to offer to either come 30 minutes early or at the scheduled time, whichever I preferred. We now have hot water again and the price was exactly as they quoted.”
