Cleaning Hot Water Heater
I keep thinking that I asked this question once before (---terminal CRS) - but with Spring fast approaching I can anticipate same problem that I've had before. My water heater will invariably be loaded with a greyish gunk that will clog all of the faucet nozzles untill I let it work through by removing the nozzle diffusers. This occurs after I switch the by-pass valves back to normal and let the tank fill (---having drained it for winter.) It helps to leave the outside tank drain unplugged for awhile during the re-filling process - but that doesn't cure the problem 100%. Is there a good way to clean the tank through the drain hole? My thinking is that this condition may have developed due to the previous owner simply filling the HW tank with anti-freeze along with the rest of the system - rather than using the by-pass and draining the tank???
