Re: Atlantic Marine Hot Water Tank and Fresh Water Winterization

This hot water tank can only be drained through the cold water inlet at the bottom of the tank. This inlet has a non-return valve in it. To drain remove the in and out lines. Stick a piece of thick wire into the cold water inlet. This will allow the water to flow out. Make sure the "out" (hot) line is removed to allow air into the tank.
