What maintenance is required?
Over time, both tankless and tanked water heaters accumulate minerals from the water supply. Like your tanked water heater you must flush and remove these minerals. They build up the heating chamber and will reduce the efficiency and life of your tankless water heater. We recommend you service your on demand water heater at a minimum annually.
