Why do water heater manufacturers recommend annual water heater maintenance?
The heating of water produces scale which can build up in your water heater then spread to pipes and fixtures. This is the primary culprit when your water pressure drops in a sink faucet, shower head and even your toilet fill valve. Scale buildup in your water heater can effect its functionality and lead to an early demise of the tank. Scale can also lead to deterioration of pipes as it sticks to the interior wall of your piping.
Tankless water heaters also produce scale. Because there isn’t a storage tank the scale will stick to the interior piping of the water heater and travel into your plumbing pipes.
We highly recommend servicing your water heater annually to help reduce the effects of scale on your plumbing system.

This is what scale looks like. It can be white or it can be brown if your water heater has started to rust.
