Take it out once, drill and thread a valve into it and never need to fight to get it out again...

Idea stolen! THANKS!

BTW, it's 15/16" for the plug.

Be sure and remove the original every so often to was out any debris that can't get out that small drain.

I plumbed my drain with a small hose and a valve on the end so I can put the hose outside of the hot water heater and keep the mess outside of the hot water heater.

Yep 15/16" should do it. Due to the placement of the drain, I found it a pain to drain the tank, I also replaced the oem plug and added 12" piece of braced faucet hose with a valve on the end. Now it is easy to drain, but it does take a little longer to accomplish.

water heater plug

I've always replaced the plastic plug with a brass one from the hardware store. The plastic plugs eventually strip on me.
