You bought a high-performance electric water heater, you installed it, and now you have slipped slowly into the stage where you wonder what you should do (and what you should not do) for your new purchase to last as long as possible.

One of the most common problems affecting the operation of a water heater is limescale deposits on the electrical resistance and on the boiler`s body. You will feel the main symptom right on your skin – the water no longer heats up properly.

To avoid this inconvenience, the integrity of the magnesium anode must be checked periodically. Also, after prolonged use, the deposits can also affect the lower part of the tank; in order to remove the impurities, the water heater must be cleaned and maintained by plumbing contractors Denver pros periodically.

Protecting against variations in electrical voltage is another highly important measure you must take in order to extend the life of your water heater. It is common knowledge that fluctuations in electrical voltage endanger any electrical equipment, all the more so in the case of water heaters connected to the socket. If the power often stops in your area, or there are fluctuations, we recommend that you purchase a voltage stabilizer.
