20,000 WATER HEATERS ARE NEEDLESSLY REPLACED EVERY DAY!
The top two causes of water heater failure are:
#1 - Bad Anode Rod
Sacrificial anode rods protect internal components of a water heater tank from corrosion, and should be replaced every 3 to 5 years to assure ongoing corrosion protection.
#2 - Scale & Sediment Build-up
Heat inside a water heater tank causes minerals like calcium to come out of solution, resulting in scale and sediment settling and hardening, degrading heater efficiency over time.
