Question about Sewing Machines
That process can be very difficult if you have not done it in a long time or have never done it.
Hopefully your plumber installed a shut off valve on the cold water pipe you will need this.
Also make sure you have a new relief valve handy, you will probably need that also.
First turn off the cold water to the haot water heater and also shutoff the gas ore electric to the heater.
Then hookup a hose tot he drain at the bottom of the tank. Open the valve and relieve the pressure. The you will have to lift the handle on the relief valve to allow air to go in to the tank so the water will go out.
When the tank is empty, you then need to alternately run cold waterinto the tank and then drain it out until you get only clear water out of the tank each time you do this. You do not have to run a lot of water in at a time, A half minute shot each time will do the trick.
When the water runs clear when draining the tank is clean.
Close all valves and change the reief valve, because it probably will not seal again.
If **** plugs up the drain valve, you may have to take off the hose and use a wire to clear it or even repalce the drain valve.
This is a slow and long process to do it right.
