water heater properly drained?
Posted by Matt C. on February 05, 2004 at 14:23:02:
Getting a smell (not sulfur) from the hot water throughout house. Very noticeable. Tried to flush the hot water heater, but it does not seem to empty all the way. Tried a few itterations of "flushing" by opening the cold water and other methods, but I can never get all of the water out. I can tell because the flow stops out of the drain, but ever once in a while I hear a bubble float to the surface inside the tank. Any ideas on how to get this heater emptied/cleaned? Thanks!
