I'm trying to empty my water heater and am having some issues with the "flow" of the water. I've turned off the water to the tank and hooked up the hose, turned the black knob and nothing. I called the manufacturer and she said to turn on a faucet in the house to help add pressure. Nothing. So, I turned on all of them and I'm getting a little...but it's going to take FOREVER to empty at this rate.
I can get the water to empty faster if I turn the water valve on a smidge, but that defeats the purpose since I'm trying to empty it. If I turn it on I'll never know when the tank has emptied.
I don't have the original instructions but we think the tank is 2002-2005.
Am I missing a step?
Is it normal for it to be this slow?
