Worry Less about your Tankless; flush out the sediment

Tankless Water Heater Maintenance Toronto - Overtime sediment begins to build up in the system. The sediment acts as an insulator, reducing the transfer of heat from the burners to the water. The result is reduced energy efficiency and less water pressure due to a built-in “restrictor” that slows down the gpm when the water is not hot enough.

If the sediment build up is severe enough, it can actually form chunks and flakes. These large pieces of sediment can begin inhabiting key components such as the flow sensor, affecting its ability to accurately measure gpm.

Worse case scenario the system becomes so clogged with chunks and flakes that the unit can no longer be repaired and must replaced.
