Is it as simple as attaching a hose and draining?
It is a gas heater, I assume that the gas needs to be turned off first.
I live outside Phoenix where the water is HARD, I am sure this heater hasnt
been drained since the house was new 6 years ago. It needs to be done I am
sure. Just want to make sure I do it the right way.
If you are just looking to flush the water heater you can turn down
the temperature, then turn the pilot light to the "pilot" position,
then wait for the temperature in the tank to drop enough so that your
hose won't melt before you can flush it. I don't drain it to flush, I
leave incoming water on.
