Water heater drain plug - 2005 Classic 30
I find that the plastic drain plug on our HW heater is a bit of a pig to get in and out when we winterize as it is not very accessible. The gas line for the burner runs in front of it.
It would be nice If I could replace the pipe plug with a small ball valve as a drain but I suspect there isn't enough room to fit one in due to the gas line clearance issue - looks like I might have maybe 1 3/4" clearance between the end of the threaded tank fitting and the gas feed line.
Just wondering if anyone has managed to replace the plug with a valve, and if so, any tips or suggestions?
Thanks ............ Brian.
