Hello all, it's been a busy summer but I was able to slow down and post a small water heater mod to finally get rid of the plastic drain plug. A trip to HD revealed a boiler style drain valve a 45 elbow and a close nipple. The install is very tight but now I can drain the tank without the use of wrenches and busted knuckles on the exhaust hood. It also has a water hose fitting on the end as an added bonus.
