Question about Rheem 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 22V50F1
Our Rheem model 21V50-2 hot water heater seems to have a build up of particulate in the tank. As far as I know it has never been drained and/or flushed.
I don't know how to go about draining it. Can you give me some pointers?
Thanks in advance.
Hi first making sure not to burn yoursel switch of heater and drain down down water from taps this may result in causing an air lock dont worry ! at the base of the heater you have the stat and element housing first withdraw the stat then the element alowing any remaining water to drain when fully drained turn on your water supply to flush out and clean replace element and stat using plummers sealent or tape hope this helps

The cold water line should have a shut off valve on it. If it does, turn it off. If it doesn't, you may have to turn off the water at your regulator or at the street.
If your water heater is gas fired, turn off the gas valve at the water heater locaton. If it is electric, turn off the breaker controlling the water heater. before draining. have a nice day !!
