Flush Water Heater

June 22, 2011

If you have discolored or rusty water that comes out of the faucet when you turn on the water on the hot water side, then you would need to "Flush" your water heater. There is a small spigot/drain on the bottom of the water heater, hook up a hose to drain, and turn on the spigot full blast for about 1 minute.

If it is coming out of the cold water side or still after the flush on the hot water side then your unit may be bad or you could have some other problem that would require a plumbing contractor to repair. Hopefully a simple fix.
