Don’t believe everything anybody tells you. Sediment buildup is usually harmless to people, but hard on water heaters. Draining water heaters doesn’t help much to control sediment anyway. Flushing them with a curved dip tube does, but not many people know to do that.
It’s highly likely they are going to replace the old water heater with another just like it. The same type has been made by everybody for the past 60 years.
Why did this Hydro guy take it upon himself to come tell you all that? Was he trying to sell you something? Sounds like he pretty thoroughly scared you. Why?
