Removing Limescale

The water around Indianapolis contains significant levels of dissolved calcium, iron salts, and magnesium. This makes our water some of the hardest in the region. As these deposits build up within your tankless water heater, they will diminish the unit’s efficiency and ability to deliver the steady streams of hot water you desire. As the deposits build up, they will lead to longer burner cycles, which will generate unnecessary wear and tear on the unit. In turn, this will shorten the lifespan of the tankless water heater.

Thus, it’s important to regularly remove the limescale deposits from the tankless water heater. This requires applying undiluted white vinegar to the tank and following the manufacturer’s instructions on how to purge the unit of limescale. In most cases, the process is straightforward and takes very little time at all. Once the tank is cleared, screws, fittings, and other fixtures should be reattached, and the unit will be ready to go again. Because it is a common problem, we also recommend installing a water softener to reduce the number of deposits in the future.

Inspecting Hoses

A leaky hose can create a real mess which is why it is crucial to regularly check hoses for damage and signs of leaks. Stopping a small problem early is always better than waiting to solve a bigger problem later. Hoses can also become blocked. If you are experiencing diminished water flow with no obvious signs of leakage, it is possible the hose has become blocked and will need to be flushed or replaced.

Lighting the Flame

Flame failure messages and system overflows are no fun. These problems can occur for many reasons. System overflows often happen because the system is being asked to deliver more hot water than it is designed to produce. Flame failures often occur because of electrical issues or because of soot buildup on the burner. In both cases, these problems should be addressed immediately as they can damage the unit.
