What a great idea! I absolutely HATE trying to fight my way in to remove the drain plug. I never thought of this. Is there a standard copuling that screws into the tank?

I wanted to make that modification, but on my Atwood model water heater, there is not enough room for the components. I can barely get the nylon plug in and out.

drfif-- I almost went & bought the stuff to do it with, but glad I saw the pic because he went at a 45 deg angle after the drain hole, which I completely forgot about. Larry

It's a plastic 1/2" male pipe thread to 1/2" hose barb fitting. Purchased it at Menards, just like Home Depot. It did take a little searching in the plumbing department to find it. It even appears to made out of the identical material that the original plug was made from.
