|Elongated Hex Nipple|
|The Valve is firmly screwed into the wash-out plug-hole|
|The handle is reached from the off-side|
preferably with a long reach extension
|Not a good place to be when the valve is opened!|
Important Note: The boiler has four washout plug holes at 90 degree intervals. For washout purposes, only the three actual plugs should be used. Only under extreme circumstances should this valve and its hex fitting be removed. The result would be that it will not be able to be tight and in the correct orientation after refitting due to wear on the threads when it was tightened up previously. Thus, it has to be a fit once and leave well alone item.
