Remember- relieve water pressure first!

It has been about 9 months since I put in a new anode rod in the water heater. Getting ready to take a long trip so thought I would pull it out and flush out the water heater. I pulled my unit out of storage and put the socket on the rod and began to remove it. Next thing I know- WHOOSH! Covered in water and alkali. I hadn't thought that there might be water pressure from over three weeks ago when I last put away my unit. So head back inside to take ANOTHER shower. It did a good job of getting all that sediment out. 😉

I try to limit my showers to one a day, but there was this one fall day I was getting ready to pink the lite well lets just say there is quite a bit of pressure there.....

Good advice for this time of the year....

Are you recommending this method to evacuate the sediment.
