    Default Cleaning the water heater drain pan line

    How often and what method should be used to make sure the water heater drain pan line does not get plugged up?

    Dump a pan of hot water into the drain pan, but what would plug it up in the first place?

    I think he/she is talking about the drain valve on the water heater.

    The question was about keeping the "drain pan line from plugging" not the tank drain.
