How do I remove sediment from my hot water tank? In this episode of Repair and Replace, Vance shows how to do a deep flush of a water heater. Also you'll learn what to do if the tank isn't draining properly. Without regular tank flushes, sediment can accumulate on the bottom of the tank and can act as an insulator, reducing the efficiency of the water heater.
