Sediment Accumulation In Tank Water Heaters
Traditional water heaters employ a large tank and system of pipes to heat and store water in your home. These tanks look like large metal cylinders and fill with between 30 and 80 gallons of water, heated by a mechanism on the bottom or inside. As the heat rises, your water warms and becomes ready for use.
Sediment accumulation is one of the most common thing that damages tank water heaters, especially as they wear out. During the process of heating water, limescale and other minerals build up along the sides of the tank and the burner. If these minerals are not removed out of the water heater with the help of water filtration, they create a sediment barrier that will remain on the burner and seriously influence your water heater’s operation.
