|In response to Re: Water Heater Leaks|
: Can I replace the drain valve on my gas water heater or do I have to replace the whole thing. If I can, how do I get it out? i've tried and obviously am too stupid to accomplish this feat.
The drain valve can be replaced by unthreading it counter clockwise. It is a good idea, to have the new one on hand. The pipe thread is 3/4" MIP.
by the way, you may want to consider how old the tank is and decide first, if you call in a plumber, if it is worth it to install the new drain or to replace the tank at that time. You will be about halfway to a new tank.
