Northern Virginia plumbing company 4FastPlumber shares maintenance tips for storage tank water heaters. The company stated that this was a public service announcement, intended to benefit homeowners, maintain the appliances, and encourage safety.

Woodbridge, VA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/11/2018 -- In a recent public service announcement, 4FastPlumber shared several maintenance tips for storage tank water heaters. The company stated that most homeowners in the United States own conventional storage water heaters. The company also said that it was sharing these maintenance tips in order to help homeowners increase the lifespan of these popular home appliances while also increasing safety.

The first maintenance tip that 4FastPlumber shared was that the pressure release valve of conventional storage water heaters should be inspected regularly. The company indicated that this valve is used to relieve water pressure from the water heater's tank. The company went on to state that homeowners should always make sure that this important valve is functioning properly. The company said that this inspection can consist of turning the valve manually to ensure that it is not sticking, but rather opening and closing with ease.

4FastPlumber also mentioned that the water heater's storage tank should be flushed regularly. According to the company, this is to ensure that sediments do not build up in the tank, as these sediments can prevent the water heater from functioning properly. 4FastPlumber mentioned that a hose can be used to clean out sediment by way of the drain outlet, after opening the pressure valve and drain valve on the water heater.

4FastPlumber also shared that the anode rod should be inspected and replaced if corroded. The company stated that this rod pulls all of the corrosive elements out of the water, preventing the tank from rusting. When the rod itself becomes corroded, it stops functioning properly and will need to be replaced. Further information regarding water heaters and their servicing can be seen at

4FastPlumber concluded its announcement by giving some company information. The company shared that it is a family-owned business, and has been serving Woodbridge-area residents for over twenty years. 4FastPlumber went on to indicate that its services include pipe repair, gas fitting, sewer line repair, plumbing upgrades, and renovations—along with several other plumbing services. The company also mentioned that it employs master plumbers and gas fitters who are fully licensed in Virginia.
