Question about Rheem 50 GAL ELEC TALL Water Heater 6YR SC 83VR522
Is the water pressure on to the heater? If the water has been turned off the heater will not drain unless you open another valve to allow air to enter the heater as the water drains out. You can do that by turning on any hot water faucet in the house or by opening the safety pressure valve located on the top of the water heater. If that does not release water, check to be sure your hose from the heater is not kinked anywhere. If pressure is on to the heater and water does not come out, you will have to take some more drastic actions to drain the tank. You may have to actually remove the faucet at the drain and dislodge calcium build up in the bottom of the tank. If it is that severe, I think I would just leave it alone rather than take a chance of damaging the unit.
