Why You Still Need To Flush Your Tankless Water Heater

You’ve invested in a tankless water heater and may have thought that you no longer need to flush your water heater, however, the same calcium and magnesium sediment that builds up inside a water heater tank over time can also build up in a tankless heater. Over time, this sediment can disrupt efficiency and reduce the tankless heater’s lifespan. Flushing a water heater with a specific cleaning agent can remove buildup and restore optimum performance.

How Often Should I Flush My Tankless Water Heater?

The quick answer is at minimum, once a year to keep things flowing properly and decrease the likelihood of premature replacement. Hard water areas may require more frequent flushing as mineral build-up can accumulate quickly.
