Extend The Life Of Your Hot Water Heater


I’m all about DIY here at SHTFPreparedness. Why hire an expensive professional when the job can be done inexpensively by yours truly. Much like changing the filter on your HVAC unit, it is a good idea to regularly maintain your water heater annually.  Family Handyman recommends

  • Test the water pressure of the tank
  • Drain the tank to flush out sediments buildup (be careful, the water will be extremely hot!)

This will extend the life of your water heater and cost you a lot less money in the long run!  You can be sure I’ll be starting this weekend on my checklist.
