Flushing Your Water Heater can be very easy or quite a difficult process. In some cases you can connect a garden hose and drain your water heater. In other cases this will have to remove a fitting from the water heater and siphon the water out. Lets get started. Step 1. Connect your garden hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the water heater. Step 2. Open the drain valve on the water heater. Here water rushing out? Check the end of the garden hose to see if water is pouring out. If the water is dribbling out it could take hours to drain. If the water is dribbling out then we need to go to step 3. If the water is rushing out then your drain valve is not clogged. Shut the valve off on top of your water heater and open a few hot water faucets inside your house. You may have to shut the water off to the whole house if your water heater valve is broken. Your water heater should completely drain in about 30 minutes. Step 3. Remove the TP valve. It’s the valve on the water heater that has a 1.5″ metal lift handle on it. See the picture of the TP valve displayed below. Note. In order to get the valve out of the water heater you will have to cut the copper pipe off. If you don’t see the copper pipe on your valve then proceed to unscrewing it. Step 4. Once you have the valve out feed a garden hose into the hole and begin a siphon. This will drain a tank much faster than if you try and wait for a clogged drain valve. Once the tank is drained you can remove the drain valve and clean it out.
