I just did it for the first time since it was installed back in '89...24 years ago. The water came out very clean to begin with and not a sign of I stopped after about 5 minutes or so, my basement drain was over flooded. Does this mean that i have no sediment? I am a widower, so it doesn't get much use as it would a family...perhaps that is why. While I am at it, I could use that drain with my garden hose, so i could water my plants in front of my house. The hose spigot is installed at the rear of the house for the small garden i have there and need. The problem is the water is hot to begin with, but it was cooling off plenty in the five minutes or so i was draining. Save me a lot of trouble and money to have a spigot installed in front of the house.

By using the hot water until it cols off enough to water your lawn is costing you a small fortune not only in water but a heck of a waste of energy. By having a tank cool because of all the hot water drained your risking tank failure from thermo stress.
