Water Heater Pearland TX

How to Drain an Electric Water Heater?
1- Turn Off Power
Before you do anything else, you must first turn off the power to the water heater. This is done at the electrical panel by disabling the circuit breaker or fuse powering the water heater.

2- Turn Off Water
Next, turn off the water supply to the water heater. You should find a water shut-off valve at or near the cold water inlet pipe at the top of the tank. Turn the valve clockwise to shut it off.
If you cannot find a local shut-off valve, turn off the water supply to the house at the main valve.
3-Ready the Drain
The drain cock at the bottom of the water heater tank is a silver or brass colored valve with a threaded end. This is where water comes out of the water heater and you need somewhere for the water to go as you drain the tank.
You can either place a bucket under the drain valve or attach a garden hose to the threaded end of the valve. Run the garden hose to a floor drain if you use that option.
4-Open the Pressure Relief Valve
You will then need to locate the water heater's temperature and pressure (T&P) valve so you can relieve pressure from the tank. It is either on the side or the top of the water heater. Look for a valve that has a tube leading downward.
Flip the lever on the T&P valve into an up position to open it.
5-Drain the Water
With all safety precautions taken, it is time to drain water from the tank. Some drain valves have a handle. Others have a short handle-less stem with a slot for a flat blade screwdriver.
6-Close the Valve
Once the draining is complete, close the T&P valve by flipping the lever down and close the drain valve by turning it clockwise. Empty the bucket or remove the hose.
7-Turn on Water Supply and Power
With the tank drained, you can perform any maintenance required. When the repair is complete, or if this was just a maintenance flush, turn the power and water supply to the water heater back on.

Fresh & clean water is a limited resource While most of the world is covered in water, salt water can only be drank after desalination which is a costly process. Incidences such as droughts further restrict access to clean and fresh water, which is a sign  that people need to take steps to reduce water consumption and save as much water as possible.
why ?
For three reasons, people should do their best to preserve water. The less water people use or waste, the less polluted the clean water. In some situations, the use of excess water pressures septic and sewage systems, contributing to groundwater contamination when untreated, dirty water streams into the soil from the sewage system.
Water conservation reduces energy consumption and can even save money for households.  The less water a household uses, the less their water bill will cost them Appliances use water, such as washing machines and dishwashing machines, also use considerable power.
Water conservation also allows towns and regions to prepare in the future for more effective use of water resources. If most of the clean water in an area is lost, there will be no water for future generations to use,  which mean that the city will need to find new ways to produce clean fresh water which will increase the taxes you will pay
How ?
  1. Toilets use around 30% of your total water use in the home. The amount of water they use can be decreased by switching your old toilet that uses 3.5 gallons of water to the newer model that uses 1.28 gallons of water 
  2. Reduce your shower time 
  3. Check for leaks 
  4. Change your old appliences with new energy efficient ones
