There are several things that you can do yourself to prevent a water heater problem. Our Hawthorne water heater repair contractors cite several of these things when they respond to water heaters that have flooded utility rooms. Unfortunately it comes too late for those customers, but it's a boon for you. Our techs put together a list of preventative maintenance tips to follow:

Alt TextCheck the Temperature and Pressure Valve at the top of the unit. When you release the valve it should let out hot water. If it does it is working properly. BE CAREFUL, this water is scalding hot.
Alt TextLet a bucket of water out of the lower drain every 6 months. This will help clear sediment from the decaying anode on the tank interior.
Alt TextPeriodically check the outside of the tank and all connections for leaks. A small leak, caught early, can prevent major flooding damage later.
Alt TextConsider painting the area beneath the water heater with a waterproof paint. If there is a leak, this paint will prevent floor damage.
