My hot water heater works but when I try to drain it, nothing comes out. Can I do any repair for free?
Due to the economy, two options are out, calling a plumber and replacing the hot water heater. Are there any other options besides leaving the heater alone and hoping for the best?
As far as the pressure valve, I keep my heater at 115 degrees so maybe that's why nothing comes out.
The gas line is a shared line between the hot water heater and the furnace and in the middle is a pipe that goes down to the drain, so since I don't know very much, I assumed that must be the right line. After trying to look under the wrapper for directions I came across a white threaded piece which easily turned on and water came out. So after ten years of not draining the water heater, it actually works.
