That gas line looks like a home owner installed it... Copper, no drip leg, shut off valve @ gas control and a union to connect it all.... There is no way a city inspector would pass that here..... What's the top looking like cuz I'm sure there's plenty wrong going on up there...

Yeah, it shouldn't have passed here either. It is natural gas. I wasn't asking a literal question, I know how I WOULD get it drained. But the fact that someone felt good about installing it this way when they had a choice AND the inspections dept that ALWAYs gives me and my guys grief about little BS stuff but passes hack work like this = unfair.

Rhetorical questions don't exist in the PZ.

I have my doubts that this water heater was even inspected. Too bad you did not show us any pics of the exhaust venting. Also, the copper gas line would fail here in Michigan, and I see no sign of a drip leg.

When this heater allegedly 'passed' inspection, did they leave an inspection sticker on the jacket of the heater?

Also, even though the drain valve is facing the wall, I cannot find where it would be a code violation (Even so, I'd NEVER install a WH w/ the drain valve that close, facing the wall) But to answer your question, there are many ways to drain that water heater. The way the drain valve is positioned/facing - Poses no challenge whatsoever to a professional plumber.

I would not bother draining it at all. I'd just call Dunbar to carry it out for me.
