Whether you’re a new homeowner or you’ve been at your New Jersey property for a while now, don’t forget to schedule your water tank service. At Ackerson Pump Company, we understand that scheduling that appointment usually isn’t at the top of your to-do list. However, if your water tank has issues down the road, you may find yourself wishing you’d better maintained it.

Water Tank Service

What’s the point of water tank service?

Your water tank has a life expectancy. It will not last forever. In fact, most things in your home (well. . . in your life, really) need preventative maintenance to be at their best. Just like you (should) go to those once-a-year physical exams with your family doctor, you should also stay on top of your water tank’s health by getting it serviced.

How often should I have my water tank serviced?

Because there isn’t a hard-and-fast rule when it comes to water tank service, here’s what we tell most of our customers: Get your water tank serviced every two to three years. (Check out our blog about service schedule for more details.)

What happens at a service appointment?

During a routine water tank service appointment, you can expect our technicians to:

  • Replace the gauge, release valve, or switch (as needed).
  • Check the overall functioning of the water tank and suggest upgrades/repairs (as needed).
  • Replace any other parts that are past their prime.
  • Air charge the water tank.

The technician should also be able to give you a head’s up on the overall condition of the water tank. That way, if repairs or a future replacement is in order, you can start planning ahead.
