Maintain your Tankless Water Heater, or ELSE!

If you have hard water and use a tankless water heater, sooner or later you WILL need to flush your unit.  If you follow this simple routine annually you will get the full 20+ year life from your unit.  Otherwise, it’s an early death for sure.  Feel free to ignore this if you have a water softener or otherwise have soft water at your house.

Supply list:

5 gallon bucket ($5)

2 gallons of White Vinegar ($10)

Submersible Ulitity Pump 1/6 to 1/3HP ($50-90 Here’s a link to the one I use from Amazon) 

Set of Washer Hoses. ($10-15 Amazon link but you can buy these anywhere.)

Total time for this process should be about 90 minutes and it will save you a ton of hassle and money from getting a clogged system from boiler scale. 

Hope this helps!
