Most tankless units have a life expectancy of about twenty years or more. Hot water heater repair is also easier with replaceable parts that may extend the life of the unit many more years. Periodic tankless hot water heater maintenance can also extend the life of the unit, and manufacturers recommend maintenance at least every 1 to 2 years.
Maintenance requires flushing the entire unit in order to remove built-up mineral deposits. A Hyde-Whipp professional is recommended, as the risk can be very high, and precaution is critical, especially if the unit was running prior to maintenance.
Since tankless water heater units are drinkable systems, chemicals must never be used for cleaning. Chemicals can linger inside the plumbing even after thorough flushing, and this can be potentially harmful.
