All kinds of mechanical systems require some kind of maintenance after a long run. It’s mandatory for the overall output performance, and well necessary if you want to keep it durable!
The same thing goes with the Hot Water systems, in which you can consider your Water Heaters too. Tips that I am going to share are super easy and will help you with extending the durability period of the machine too.
3 Super Tips for Maintaining Hot Water System
We tend to forget how much we are dependent on hot water; when it comes to cooking, washing, and bathing.
Like any other thing, we realize the importance of a that only when it gets damaged. Isn’t it? The same thing could happen with the hot water system. To avoid that situation, it will be better if you could take care of the following 3 things, at least once a month.
a. Check the pressure reducing valve of the water system.
It’s because of the pressure reducing valve that you can maintain a pressure control on the inlet side. If the pressure was not steady, then this could put in a lot of force on the internal lining. So, do a check on this and ensure that everything is running properly.
b. The Temperature Pressure Relief (TPR) Valve
The main purpose of the Temperature Pressure Relief is to release out the excess pressure formed inside the tank. If the TPR element is releasing out the pressure continuously, then this is a clear indication that something is wrong and you need to carry out water system maintenance.
c. Status of the Sacrificial Anode
There is a sacrificial anode which is placed on the internal portion of the water system. As the name goes, they are the sacrificing ones and keeps the water system protected from rusts. Once the anode starts rusting, it will spread to the machine which will simply make the water system useless.
Therefore, replacing and upgrading the anode is equal to keeping the water system safe from rust.
