    You need to find some way to let air into the unit to finish draining the tank !

    If you have some type of pop off safety valve what we call here a temp/pressure relief

    valve, that you can pop open or remove to allow the tank to finish draining or open the

    cold water taps in the house with the main cold water valve shutoff ?
