Annual Inspection and Maintenance Services


For an appliance that is relied upon every single day, conventional water heaters do not receive much attention until they malfunction and stop producing hot water.  Even if your water heater resides in an obscure location and very quietly satisfies your hot water needs, it does not mean that the appliance is completely maintenance free.


With proper maintenance, the life of your water heater extends for years by retaining GPS Plumbing’s annual inspection and maintenance services.

Maintenance Service


When water enters the water heater tank, dirt, sediment and various minerals settle on the tank bottom.  Depending on the water’s quality, these superfluous "deposits" add up and quickly diminish the heating efficiency of the unit.  Lower efficiencies result in higher operating cost.  These deposits also stimulate rust production and are another cause of early water heater replacement. 


Having GPS Plumbing service the water heater at regularly scheduled intervals can optimize the performance of the unit, and significantly prolong its useful life.


Routine maintenance tasks performed include:


  • Draining and flushing the water heater to eliminate built-up sediment and minerals
