How to drain a gas steam boiler?

Rate this Entry
I just had a new gas steam boiler replaced and would like some guidance on how to best drain the system. I had wanted to run a hose directly to the basement cleanout trap through the knockout cap, perhaps by having the hose permantly connected to some type of cover for the trap in place of the knockout cap. I was told that is not the proper thing to do and that I should not keep removing the trap cover to drain the tank. I do not have another floor level drain in the basement. Since the hose needs to be below the surface of the boiler drain, it makes it difficult to even put the hose into a bucket and then walk it to the sink. Is there an easier way? TIA
