I think the OP has it figured out. He has been opening the wrong drain valve.

Well last night I opened the white spigot valve (w/o problems) and water started to drain out but very slowly. Previously I had opened the low point drain and water would shoot out as if under pressure (maybe just discharge head). Thanks again everyone.

Mine drains slowly also. Like several hours. It is a small diameter valve. Your low point drain valve may have had some water pressure behind it from the water heater or accumulator somewhere.
