RE: [APD] Re: Heating water for water changes
"Metals can build up in your water heater. You're probably OK if you flush
it a couple of times a year. Otherwise, your fish can suffer depending on
the metal content in the water that comes from your water heater.
I'm puzzled by all this concern over water from a water heater??
How exactly do metals build up in a water heater? Keep in mind that a water
heater (at least mine) is constantly being flushed with new water as you use
hot water. It's not like its always the same water sitting in a metal
container being boiled over and over again for years. :-) In any case I
have a hard time imagining a water heater slowly "dissolving" into the water
I have never "flushed" my water heater. I don't even think my water heater
has a "flushing" function.
Never had a problem in 20 years of fish (and plant) keeping...
Just my two cents!
