Homemade Water Heater Tank Rinser

Check it out. Had a spray nozzle with threads on it - cut and attached an old hose from a washing machine. The smaller diameter of the hose allows it to get inside the water heater tank. Works like a charm at flushing the water heater! (Pic is sideways for some reason...)

Nice job! Do you get enough pressure to help remove the calcium build up on the inside of the tank?

Yessir! The smaller hose restricts the flow giving it decent pressure. There was PLENTY of sediment that came out when I used it...and i kept using it until the water ran clean out of the tank. I was thinking about using a hose clamp and an old air hose fitting to create even more pressure, but I donít think I could get the hose clamp through the drain hole in the tank.
