Removal of 5" sediment
Posted by Jody on February 15, 1999 at 00:05:26:
Never flushed Rheem 52 gal, 5500 wat,t single element unit. Drain hole plugged with sediment. Let water drain out slowly through the element hole. Sediment up to element. How can I get this much stuff out now? Is there a trick or special flush/pump rig that I can rent and use through the element hole? Help!!!
