    Drain Welll Tank annually?

    I have a well and 4 year old tank. We tend to get a fair amount of sediment in our lines and the water is mildly hard. Should I be draining the tank periodically? Should I drain the electric water heater as well? If so, how often should this be done, and any special procedure to use
