    If you took all that out why not just saw off the nipple or drill a hole, or bang a hole to drain the Old HW Heater ?
    I think you should rethink who you call names before you "Dance with the 500# Tank again". ~(_8^(I)

    78 next month, and I ALWAYS "waltz" the old heater out of the way so it can drain while I install the new one, unless the heater is on an 18" pedestal.
