How do I drain the water tank


Anon, Make sure gas or breaker(power) is turned off to the Heater so it will not come on during draining,connect a hose onto bottom valve of water heater, run hose to a floor drain and insert, turn your water main off so as not to fill tank while draining, open water heater drain valve, water will then drain from attached hose into floor drain until empty. For water to run faster you may open a near by hot water tap, this will allow air into tank as you drain it, do not forget to turn this tap off before refilling tank. You then can turn main back on for a bit if you would like to do a flush of sediment from the bottom of tank.
See links below for more instruction and video.

How to maintain a Water Heater


A water heater can last you many years if you take proper care of it. Every few months, you should check your water heater for leaks and flush it out to avoid buildup of sediment inside the tank.

Before draining and flushing your water heater, turn off the gas or electrical power and let the water cool down a little. Close the incoming water valve, and attach a hose to the drain valve to run the water into a large bucket, or to a drain or the outdoors.
Open the drain valve, and turn on one hot water faucet somewhere in the house to let in air. When all the water has drained from the water heater, turn the cold water valve on and off until the water from the drain runs clear. Then close the drain valve and the hot water faucet, open the cold water valve, and turn the water back on.
This is also a good time to test the temperature-pressure relief valve, which keeps pressure in the boiler from building up too much. Lift or lower its handle. Water should drain from the overflow pipe. If it does not, call in a repair professional as this could result in a potentially dangerous situation.

How to install a Water heater


Step one removal of the old one start's with turning the power source and water off to the water heater.
Once power and water is off connect a water hose to the drain on bottom of water heater to start draining. Open the drain and the hot side to a faucet to help water drain quicker.
Once drained and new heater their to go back in. Remove old one and reinstall new one.
Connect wires and water lines to new heater and turn water on first to heater once everything is connected.
Let water run til you get all the air out of tank and water running from hot side on all faucet's throughout house before turning power on to heater.
Once all air is out of tank and water flowing from all faucet's you can turn power on to new heater and about 30 to 40 minutes you should have hot water.

Standing water in dishwasher


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.
