    Re: Empty old w.h. Faster ?

    In all my time I've never once had to pump out a water heater. Blow out the sediment with the house pressure and let her go. By the time I'm set up with the new one it's empty.

      Only time I use the pump is second floor installs where there is no near by floor drain. Run the pump hose outside and let it rip. Ones with proper floor drains I just do as you do blow it out and then let it drain while I set up.

          glendale puts you in a good location for all of us. maybe we can go indoor skydiving at universal since it's around the corner.

          lets keep in touch and plan on a big day o fun.

          indoor skydiving? That must be one tall building. LOL.

          I used to collect vibration data on axial fans and would have to be in the air stream occasionally. OMG! I used to sweat being hit by a foreign object in the airstream which was some ridiculous speed.

          Do you know if they have filter racks inline to protect the users?

            geno, i don't believe they have anything more than a heavy mesh screen. but they dam near strip search you before you get suited up. they have lockers that you store all your stuff in and they keep the key till you're done.

            this is a newer design with the fans up in the ceiling and they suck the air, then recirculate and blow it down and around. anything falls below and it pretty much stays below.

            the old original design from vegas around 27 years ago was the prop from an airplane was below you. anything falling into it and it explodes.

            the universal studio one is all clear acrylic and everyone can watch. if i'm not mistaking it's 4 fans generating 800 hp. in a 10' diameter x 30' tall tube. here is a link to all the indoor centers in the world. SkyVentureCorporate Website - Tunnel Locations

            iflyhollwood is the one at universal studios. not cheap, but lots of fun.
