Neglected Oil Fired Hot Water Heater, What Now?
Guys, I bought a house with a 9 year old oil fired hot water heater. It is working fine, but it turns out that it has not been serviced or flushed since it was installed! I assume that I should have a professional check the oil burner, right? Should I also flush the tank and check the corrosion rods? (That seems like an easy DIY task, is it?) I've been told that flushing the tank at this stage may invite more problems than it prevents so appreciate any professional advice.
