Well, if you’re a DIY enthusiast, flushing your tankless water heater is as easy as taking a walk in the park. Luckily, Google has lots of how-to information on this section.
What should you do in case of leakage?
Tankless water heaters don’t store any water in them. They heat water on demand. As such, water leakage is near impossible. However, after several years of usage, it is possible that the piping and joints may start leaking. This means that despite the fact that it is rare for these tanks to leak; there are chances of leaks.
Mostly, in case it happens, tankless water heaters leak from the bottom or along the connections. It may seem not a big deal at first. However, as time goes, the leakage may turn out to be catastrophic if not taken seriously.
Tankless water heaters have higher efficiency than their standard counterparts that use energy continuously to keep their water tanks hot. The sweet spot with these models is that they rarely develop problems. However, they are also susceptible to technical hitches. In this article, we discuss these hitches and also guide you on how to fix some of the problems all by yourself. We also tell you when you need to get a professional on board. Shall we?
