Water Heater Maintenance & Tune Ups
Hot water is a necessity, something you realize quickly once it’s gone unexpectedly! If your storage tank corrodes, leaks, or fails to heat the water adequately, you get cold showers, water damage, high energy bills, and costly replacements. These expensive problems can be avoided entirely by requesting regular water heater maintenance services by the experts at Blue Sky Plumbing & Heating!
Why You Need Water Heater Maintenance Services
Tank water heaters are currently the most popular model water heater in American households. They are so called because the appliance is a steel water tank with an attached heating element that ensures that your showers and sinks have enough hot water for washing and preparing food. Unfortunately, over time, these tanks become inefficient and damaged. And, more often than not, if your hot water heater stops working, the problem could have been avoided with a little bit of professional preventative maintenance.
At Blue Sky, our technicians can recognize potential problems during routine maintenance, perform minor repairs and tune-ups, and keep your tank heater working as it should.
Here are a few of the problems we look out for during a tank water heater maintenance service:
- Calcium Carbonate & Other Sediment: The first thing we do is drain the tank, flush out any residual sediment, and clean the tank. Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) can also coat the electric heating element, preventing the water from heating up enough. We can repair the element or recommend replacing it.
- Rust: Corrosion is always a problem where hot water is concerned, so our inspections always include a thorough check for rust on the tanks and anode rods. If we spot rust, we will take action right away to mitigate the corrosion and make appropriate repairs, which may include replacing the rod.
- Cracks & Leaks: These problems can sometimes be fixed if they are minor enough. However, if they have progressed too far, a replacement or tankless water heater model might be in the near future.
It is important to note that the above issues develop more often when water heater maintenance and tune-ups are neglected for too long. If your unit has gone without a professional check and it needs an emergency repair, the technicians at Blue Sky can offer you affordable water heater repair options as well, or they can speak to you about opting for a tankless water heater.

What can I put down my garbage disposal?
As long as you use enough water, you can put almost any non-fibrous food down your garbage disposal. This includes bones up to ½” in diameter, coffee grounds, eggs and egg shells, orange rinds, apples, and potato peelings. Most problems occur when you don’t use enough water and don’t allow the water to run for at least 10 seconds after the food disappears.
How do I know if my toilet is leaking?
Toilet leaks are more common than you might think. This can make your water bill sky-high and leave you wondering what is going on. Here are a few signs that your toilet is leaking:
- You frequently have to jiggle the handle to make the toilet stop running.
- You have to hold down the handle when to flush to get the tank to empty.
- Water runs over the top of the overflow pipe.
- You hear sounds of water running in the toilet when it is not being used.
- Water runs down the sides of the toilet bowl long after the toilet was last used.
- You hear the toilet tank refilling even though it hasn’t been emptied recently.
What is the best kind of pipe for my home?
Most of the time, we suggest plastic or PEX/PVC piping for your home. This material lasts for a long time because it doesn’t rust and is less likely to crack or break than some other types of pipe. Unless you are in a very specific situation, which our plumbers will discover, we highly recommend this type of piping for your home.
What is hydro jetting?
Hydro jetting offers a way to clean your drains without digging up your yard or pulling your home apart to access clogged pipes. Instead, we use a tool that sprays highly-pressurized water into your pipes. We control the pressure of the water and where it sprays, so we can remove your clog and clean your entire pipe. A hydrojetting tool has one nozzle that sprays forward and 6-8 that sprays backward. On the first pass, the reverse-facing jets propel the nozzle forward while the front one breaks up clogs. When we pull the nozzle back through the pipe, the reverse jets scour the edges of the pipe until they look like new. If your plumber thinks that hydrojetting is a good option for you, we’ll let you know and get the job done fast.

What kind of water heater should I get?
Most of the time, the type of water heater you get will be determined by the type of connections you already have. Unless you are highly motivated to change the type of water heater that you have, the best choice is usually to get the same kind that was installed before. If you are in a place to change the type of water heater that you have, gas is often the better option. It is cheaper and can heat larger quantities of water faster. However, gas water heaters are usually larger than electric ones and you cannot store flammable liquids nearby.
What kind of sink should I get?
When it comes to getting a new sink, you have many options. These include:
- Cast iron
- Stainless steel
- Enameled steel
- And more!
When our experts help you install a sink, we’ll ask you what you plan to do with it. Will you wash dishes in it regularly? Is it likely you will drop dishes or silverware in it? Then, we’ll ask you about your preferences. Do you want a large sink or a small one? Do you want a sink that sits on top of the counter or below the counter level? Once we know the answers to these questions, we’ll work with you to find the perfect kind of sink for your home. In general, cast iron and stainless steel are more durable than some other types of sinks, but they may require special care.
Why is my drain clogged? I’m so careful!
We believe you when you tell us that you are so careful about putting grease down your drains. Unfortunately, most people end up putting it down accidentally no matter how hard they try to do the opposite. When you rinse plates, bowls, pots, and pans in your sink, they often have a thin layer of grease on them. This gets rinsed down the drain with the rest of the debris from your plate. When this grease contacts a cold pipe downstream from the kitchen sink, it solidifies and attaches to the pipe wall. Over the years, even the smallest amounts of grease can build up and cause clogs. Don’t worry, though! Your Blue Sky plumber will get that clog out fast!
