      For several months my hot water has been discoloured red/brown. We have a 80 year old house with original plumbing but the HW is about 10 years old. How do I flush the gas HW unit ? What is actually meant by ‘Flush’ ? (empty all of it ? Or just some ? It holds about 300litres.) Thanks.

      Yep sure does empty it all out and wash it out using cold water through the filling pipe then flush it out again repeat the process until it runs clean.

      Sounds like tank might be going bad are rusting, flush it out and if it does again I would have tank checked out.
