Answer: "Upkeep administered in periodic, regular intervals can optimize the performance and significantly prolong the life of a water heater. Routine maintenance tasks include: Draining and flushing the water heater twice a year to eliminate built-up sediment and minerals. Testing the pressure relief valve to ensure it is in good working condition. Before you begin any work on the water heater, remember either to turn off the power supply or to set the gas switch to the pilot position. "
