How to Flush Your Water Heater

Over time, sediment and minerals can accumulate in your water heater, reducing its efficiency and potentially causing damage to your water heater. Flushing your water heater out once a year can help to remove these deposits and keep your unit running smoothly. While hiring a professional to flush your water heater typically yields the best results, you can do this process on your own. All you need is a hose, a bucket, and some free time. 

Below is the step-by-step process for flushing your water heater:

  • Turn off the power or gas supply to your water heater and allow it to cool for several hours.
  • Shut off the cold water supply valve to the water heater. 
  • Connect a garden hose to the drain valve located near the bottom of the storage tank. Make sure the other end of the hose is in a safe location where water can be drained out without causing any damage. 
  • Open the pressure relief and drain valves to drain the tank. 
  • Once all the water has drained, turn on the cold water supply valve and allow the water to run for a few minutes to flush out any remaining sediment.
  • Close the drain and pressure relief valves and allow the tank to fill with water once again. 
  • Once the tank is full, turn on the power or gas supply to the water heater and wait for it to heat up again.
