When It’s Time to Call a San Diego Water Heater Repair Expert
It’s easy to take water heaters for granted – until they break! That’s why it’s important to contact a water heater repair technician at the first sign of a potential malfunction. If you’ve asked the following questions about your water heater, it’s time to call a repair technician from Anderson Plumbing, Heating & Air:
- Why is my water heater making that knocking sound?
- Why does my water heater pilot light keep going out?
- Why is there standing water under my water heater?
- Why isn’t my hot water heater getting hot enough?
- Why is my water heater fluctuating between hot and cold water?
- Why does my water heater keep shutting off?
Even if your water heater isn’t showing signs of a serious malfunction, you should schedule routine maintenance at least once per year for a professional water heater flush. If there are more than three people in the house, consider a more consistent maintenance schedule – such as once every six months.

How to Flush Your Water Heater
Flushing your water heater at least once per year can extend its life and save you money on costly repairs or a replacement. This is what the process looks like:
- If your water heater runs on electricity, turn off the circuit breaker. If the water heater is gas turn off the pilot off. (Your water heater will absolutely die if you do not do these steps!) Wait for at least one hour, depending on how high your water temperature settings are. The hotter the water, the longer it needs to cool down.
- Take your garden hose and attach it at the bottom of your water heater's drain valve.
- Place the other end of the hose where you want to drain your water heater.
- Shut off the cold-water pipe (This is located at the top of the water heater).
- Drain the water heater by opening the drain valve at the bottom. (There might be a handle, or you may need a screwdriver to open this valve. This can take several hours if the water heater hasn’t been flushed in a long time!
- When the water is clear or stops draining from the water heater, then turn on the cold water. This will pressure flush all the sediment like the minerals out of the tank. Do this for several minutes (or longer if the water heater hasn’t been flushed before).
- Close the drain valve at the bottom of the water heater.
- Disconnect the hose and make sure nothing is leaking.
- Let the water heater refill. While doing so, turn on the hot water in your kitchen sink to release any air from the line.
- When the tank is completely full, turn on the electricity or gas again.
With any complicated plumbing process, we recommend contacting a professional plumber to flush your water heater for you. Additionally, the more people who live in your house, the more often you’ll need to flush your water heater.
