If you think about it, unless you open a hot water tap inside, how is air gonna get into the hot water tank to replace the water. Even then you have a big drain hole and small pipes.

Popping the relief valve gets you an air hole almost as big as the drain hole.

Hot water heater

Good info everyone is providing regarding operation of the traditional tanked hot water heater. I decided to go wtih a tankless heater. No bypass, no tank, just endless hot water.... Well, as long as you have propane. May be interested in my post #40 at this link.
