That depends a lot on how much corrosion or mineral build up gets caught in the drain valve. If clear, maybe 10-15 minutes.
How much water should drain out of a water heater with a 50 gallon tank?
The breaker tripped for our water heater. Should I call a plumber to inspect it?
I can't drain my gas hot water tank using a hose because of the distance uphill to drain it. Will the tank empty if I only turn on the hot water faucet?
I have a brand new Bradford 40 gallon single element water heater. I installed the heater exactly as I should have, and filled it all the way up with water. I then turned the breaker on. I waited and waited, but it never heated the water at all. I tested the element and thermostat, and it had power and the correct amount. What can I do next? I have read something about the thermostat calibration.
My water heater stopped working. I replaced the thermostats and it was working for a day. Now it is not. Could that be because of a heating element gone bad?
My water heater is electric and in the top where the electric comes in I found water and rust. Is this normal condensation? It is 10 years old but water and electricity do not mix.
