So, a male x male threaded bush is all you need? Is that pipe thread x hose thread? Does the drain spigot bend out of the way or does it have to be installed every time you drain?

This one attaches to the end of a garden hose, the plastic wand section is inserted into the open WH drain. The tip of the wand makes nearly a 90 bend allowing you to detect the stream down and around in the tank. The water carrying the sediment flows out the open drain while you work the wand around. The wand has some flex so it can be inserted past the gas line into the drain.
