EVEN THOUGH IT'S 40 DEGREES, SPRING IS HERE!

And let the ritual of spring cleaning begin... but here's a tip for all year round from one of our Home Warranty Companies. Something to think about! 

“Failure is simply the opportunity to
begin again more intelligently.”  Henry Ford

Home Maintenance Tip 
Keeping Your Water Heater Fit

Most people don't give much thought to their water heater - they just turn on the faucet and expect hot water to come out. Water heaters are relatively maintenance free, and you can keep your water heater in peak operating condition just by performing two
simple maintenance tasks every six months: test the pressure valve and then flush the tank.

If the pressure release valve is not operating properly, the tank can potentially over pressurize and explode. Flushing the tank prevents sediment build up, which can reduce your water heater's energy efficiency and clog your water lines. Consult your owner's manual or other maintenance guide for instructions on how to safely perform these maintenance tasks. Visit OLD REPUBLIC and click on the QUICK FIX TIPS link in the Homeowner's Section of their site for more information.

If you have any homeowner tips you'd like to offer, please email Charlie@TeamSouthBayRealty.com  and we'll post for everyone. 

Happy Spring! 

p.s. You might want to invest in a hot tub for "after Spring Cleaning" to treat your aching back!  I purchased a FreeFlow Spa about 5 years ago and I love it.  Lots of good deals right now.  Shop around and get one that is "self-contained" like mine.
Call if you want some tips on on tubs.
