I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding.

The average life expectancy of a hot water heater is 8-12 years. The life of a tankless water heater is more than 25 years. The traditional hot water heater is past its life expectancy and the tankless water heater is still within its life expectancy. 

Washer & Dryer: Life Expectancy
