Went to change "element" AFTER draining hot water tank using hose attached to drain nozzle at bottom of tank. Drained for almost an entire day. When I went to unscrew and changed existing element (bottom) on electric tank WATER came out like tank was still full.
I'm concerned about all the water that got between outer tank & inner tank and how to "dry out". I'm concerned about turning electricity back on. I'm concerned that I got over 3 pots of water after all the time taken to drain.
At this point on what I should & should not do?
