Hot water heaters can crack and leak due to sediment buildup within the unit.
So, what does this mean?
Just like any other appliance or area in your home, hot water heaters need to be cleaned. Over time particles and minerals within your water will settle and begin to buildup around the interior of the unit. This buildup can also coat the heating element, which can lead to corrosion. Drain your water heater once a year to clean the interior and remove particle buildup. This will decrease sediment buildup and prevent cracks and leaks. It can also improve the performance of your unit, saving you money to operate the unit.
What happens if your hot water heater has a breakdown? At MAX, homeowners and farmowners policies have Equipment Breakdown coverage available. Talk to your MAX agent or contact us for more information to add this valuable coverage to your policy.

We hear a lot about the causes of accidents while driving. And while intoxication, medications, lack of sleep, mobile phones, etc. are all very large reasons for accidents, the greatest reason of all, and it ties in to the others, is lack of attention. Or, we could say, lack of mindfulness. So, since we all drive a lot, here’s a few things you could do to increase your own awareness while driving:
- As you get into your car, take three deep breaths and say to yourself, “now, I am driving”. And you can strengthen your mindful life by doing the same thing when you arrive at your destination – another three deep breaths and an affirmation of what you are going to do now.
- Do the same breathing at any stop sign or stop light and look around and center on where you are. Oftentimes I have driven someplace and don’t even remember the route I took – kind of frightening!
- You can literally bless other drivers wishing them wellness and happiness. Remember as we do it to others, we do it to ourselves. I have found my bad moods (to say nothing of my driving safety) to be vastly improved when I do this. When I am at my best, I also try and smile at other driver’s impatience and wish them well. And that improves my own health rather than ‘competing’ with other drivers or letting them irritate me.
- Look around and concentrate on what is happening, what you are seeing, what is going by you. That develops awareness. Just noticing is a powerful way to increase our brain’s attentiveness and literally transforms the neurons.
Many times it is easy to tell ourselves ‘we don’t have time’ to practice awareness and mindfulness. Most of us drive to and from work and even those of us who work from home drive many miles in a normal week. Not only do we increase our (and others’) safety by practicing in the car, we can change our brains!
