Home Maintenance #1: How often do you drain and flush your hot water heater?
Wait intell issue arises
I know you are supposed to but I have only drained them when I was replacing them. At that point they are usually full of rust where the drain is. Don't know if that runs throughout the tank.
Every few years.

I’ve never done it
