Complete Mechanical, Inc., can help with your hot water tank service in Lake Stevens. Your hot water tank is a complex piece of equipment – although it usually requires very little attention. Although it might look like a large cylinder that is standing quietly in a closet, it has a variety of parts.
Of course, the main part of a water heater is the tank, unless it is a tankless heater. It is the largest part of the water heater. Over time, the inner chamber can become pitted and slowly filled with calcification or sludge. The correction for this is to drain the tank, and flush it out, then to change out the anode rod, a piece of metal that extends into the tank. This rod helps attract the acidity of the heated water to help prevent pitting. The release valves and the emergency plug should be checked to make sure they are functional. The thermostat should also be checked, and the heating system, whether it gas or electric. If your water heater uses gas, this is also a good time to check the gas pipes. This is a process that involves spraying joins with a solution that will bubble if there is a leak.
