Water heaters are one of those devices that comes under the heading of “a good servant, but bad master.” Correctly maintained, water heaters provide hot water on demand – one of the truly delightful perks of modern living – without adding to a home-maker’s daily labors. A storage water heater is a large tank with a heater, truly it is a simplistic device were it not for a physical attribute peculiar to water: it’s molecules change size with its temperature. Steam, a natural by-product of heating water, expands creating pressure. For this reason, water heaters come with safety valves and emergency plugs which allow the excess pressure to escape harmlessly. Water that flows through water heaters tends to have a certain amount of sediment and mineral content. The sediment builds up, and the mineral content can sometimes create acidity. The anode rod, a piece of zinc, attracts the acidity helping to prevent it from attacking the lining of the tank and causing pitting. A service visit will check burners, valves, and the anode rod. It will take care of flushing out the tank and removing sediment.
