The heating of water in your water heater causes calcium carbonate to precipitate out and settle to the bottom of the tank. Also contributing to sediment buildup are any particulates that may be in your water supply like sand. Sediment is usually more of a problem in areas with very hard water. Sediment buildup depends upon what kind of water you have. In some areas there is virtually no sediment and in other areas sediment buildup can be significant. Regular flushing of your hot water heater helps prevent sediment build up.
