buying 1 1/16 socket for water heater drain removal?

I need to get a 1 and 1/16 socket to drain my water heater (Suburban SW6D). I THOUGHT I ordered the right one from Amazon but it ended up being the Camco socket for residential water heaters at 1 1/2

Where did you get your 1 1/16 socket, and does it really matter as long as I get the right size? (6pt vs 12pt, deep vs regular)

That 1.5" socket should work for the element should you ever have to replace that . so store it with the other .

Menards.

Home Depot, Lowes, ACE, any hardware/Lumber store should have what you need.

My LP line runs right in front of the drain plug so I have to use a box end wrench.

Just a plug...not Anode ? Old TT with just a plug was same way. Box wrench only. New TT with Anode I remove with a socket.

6 pt or 12 pt kind of depends on how firmly it is in.
