Tankless Water Heater Care & Maintenance

Check the filter for debris every six months to one year

Checking the filter on your tankless water heater is easy. Begin by simply turning off your water, and then locate your filter- it's typically below the cabinet, on the inlet fixture. You'll need to unscrew the plug- don't worry if a little leftover water drains out- then check the filter for debris, wipe it clean, and put it back. Voila, you're done!

Perform a flush every six months to two years 

Periodically flushing your tankless water heating unit keeps it free of any damaging mineral build-up. While the cleaning agent used for flushing tankless water heaters is simply a white vinegar solution, the process is more complex than filter cleaning and requires some special equipment. Many homeowners find it much more convenient to simply leave this maintenance task to a professional Fort Worth plumbing service. 

What To Expect From Professional Maintenance Service

If you call in a professional Fort Worth tankless water heater maintenance technician, they'll perform both a filter check-and-clean and a system flush. While checking and cleaning the filter will take only a few minutes, the length of time it takes to perform a system flush on your tankless water heater will depend on the quality (hardness/softness) of your water, and how long it's been since your last maintenance flush.
