    Re: Draining Water Heaters

    SHAAAAZAM!! What a great idea! Which gives me another idea...on Gas water heaters, why couldn't you unscrew the thermostat and drain from that opening?

    I seem to get the water heaters in a garage, you know...the nasty buggers on a stand that refuse to drain. A rig like you're talking about could save lots of bucket time!

    Back when I was young(er) and foolish, I used to manhandle the (full) tank to a place near the floor drain and break off the drain valve.

    Wanna guess why I don't do THAT anymore?
