Maintaining a Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters are both efficient and luxurious, making them a very popular choice in homes. The possibility for endless hot water is appealing to most people, but a lot of people don't know what it takes to maintain your tankless water heater to prevent scale build up and increase longevity. It's definitely not one of those products you can just install ad forget about it. The manufacturer recommends that you flush your tank every 6 months to a year, and instead of paying a plumber a lot of money to do this, Matt Risinger shows us how we can do it ourselves. Calcium deposits form on the inside of the tank causing a buildup that can change your tanks life from 20-25 years to 10 years. It's a pretty simple process, turn off the gas line, water line, and how water output. Relieve the pressure, and then hook up a hose and flush white vinegar through the system. Sounds simple enough, watch the full video and try it at home to increase your tankless water heater's life.
