Your Edmonton Water Heater and Its Importance in a Boil Water Advisory
"How does your water heater in Edmonton play a role in this kind of situation? For consumption, water must be boiled to make it potable, once cooled. Water heaters can be tapped to help save time in boiling potable water as hot water boils faster than cold. The statement that “cold water boils faster” is a myth. The hot water tanks Edmonton homes usually have need to be drained once the water advisory is lifted. You’ll need to empty the water pipes to get the safe, clean water pouring in again. To do this, you’ll have to turn the hot water tap on and keep it on until the water running from it turns cold. The aim is to get the stored water to drain from the heater so it can refill with safe water."
