Water Heater Inspection
A regular inspection schedule from our professional Charlotte-area plumbing team helps ensure that small problems don’t turn into expensive disasters. Our thorough inspection of your water heater involves checking for wear and tear on the unit’s heating element and other components. We also ensure pipes are clog-free. For gas water heaters, we keep the gas lines clear and operating smoothly.
We keep no secrets. Here are some of the most important benefits of water heater inspections and preventative maintenance:
- Increased amounts of hot water for you and your family.
- Extension in the lifespan of your water heater.
- Drain valve clog prevention.
Water Heater Tank Cleaning
Whether you do it yourself, or include it in your next water heater maintenance here in Charlotte, water tank cleaning is key to the longevity and efficiency of your water heater. Accumulating sediment is the number one cause of water tank leaks.
Cleaning the tank involves properly disconnecting the power and the water supplies, draining the tank, slowly pouring in the proper cleaning liquid, resting the tank, then rinsing and refilling the water heater.
Many of our customers prefer to leave water heater tank cleaning to us, but we’re happy to accommodate whatever combination of inspection and maintenance tasks that works best for you.
