The first step is looking for leaks, then followed by checking the airflow. After that, it is time to test the pressure and temperature relief valve. That will be followed by assessing the anode rod to see the extent of its corrosion. The last step is to drain and flush the tank to remove the sediment. Preparation is necessary for this exercise. So, there are some tools that you will require. You will need a garden hose, 1 &1/16th inch socket, a bucket, a breaker bar, a screwdriver, a half-inch drive socket wrench, a wire brush, a multi-use cleaning brush, Teflon tape, and needle nose pliers. Once you have all the tools, you can now proceed to disconnect the water heater. How do you go about it? First, turn the gas supply off, or perpendicular to the pipe. After that, set the water heater to the pilot setting and turn the gas control off. You can shut off the cold supply. Do not forget that the water inside the tank will still be hot. Therefore, be careful when draining or accessing the tank.
