If you do anything, it should be to "flush" it by connecting a hose to the bottom valve and then opening the valve to permit any localized debris to be washed out. This, or actually draining the tank, will only remove accumulations near the valve so its benefits are subject to interpretation.

: I was reading on another website about water heaters that its recommmended to drain your water heater but it didn't give a reason why and also how frequently. What is the purpose of draining your water heater and how often, if it is necessary, should you do it. Also when you do drain it do you let it empty or not? Thanks!
