Water Heater - Drain?
Posted by Trent Zirkle on February 27, 19100 at 23:02:45:
Had a plumber replace piping (exit from HW heater) due to a leak. He installed some type of valve on a nearby pipe to "bleed" the system of air that accumulated during the repair. He then removed ~10 gallons of really cruddy looking water from the newly installed valve to remove the air from the lines. The water got progressively clearer toward the end. However, our hot water in the house is still a moderate brownish color 4 weeks later. Any suggestions? Do I need to drain the heater? If so, can you give advice or point me to a previous message on how to do this? Very much appreciated. Trent
