Totally doing this! I pop this plug out many, many times every year before and after winter camping events. when its cold, those sharp sheet metal edges and pipes will tear at you!

When one drains a hot water tank, one should stick a hose inside after and flush out mineral and calcium particles from inside the tank. This will make the tank last longer.

What else can be said, you guy's have all the right idea's. It is a pain in you know what to get too, I also use a small adjustable wrench and work slow. I also do not over tighten when replacing.
