Andy, shut off the water to the house and open up your outside hydrants and get rid of the pressure. Then put a hose on the water heater drain and let a qt or so out and unscrew the expansion tank. This tank should be screwed into a tee on reinstallation. You may want to put a brass nipple and a 1/2" ball valve before the tank. Easier to work on in the future. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
