Question about Whirlpool Water Heaters
I have a Vanguard 6E704 - 30 Gal Gas Water Heater that I have had for a long time but still seems to work fine it produces plenty of hot water for all of my washing and bathing needs.
My question is for sometime I have noticed a Crystalized material (Greenish or Lime in color) forming on the top of the water heater that appears to be originating from the Vent Opening on the top of the water heater.
What might this material be caused from and what is the best solution for removal of the material and cleaning and maintenance on this product.
Thank you in advance for your quick response.
You need a new anode rod in the water heatr. You will probably be looking at a new heater soon.
