One of the best things San Francisco area homeowners can do to extend the life of their water heaters is to periodically drain their tanks. This post will go over how to drain a water heater and how it can keep yours running smoothly and efficiently.

Why is it important to drain a water heater?

Over time, it’s common for water heater tanks to build up with sediment that is normally suspended in the water. This sediment can decrease your water heater’s efficiency and be damaging to different parts of your unit. You can greatly extend the life of your unit by draining your water heater at least once a year and getting rid of that sediment.
