Mr. w. I vaguely recall the drain plug was VERY small 1/4-28 or some such. I seriously considered replacing it with a valve as Mr. X suggests but I felt, and I still do, that the largest drain hole I could put into a 1/4" bolt (new valve body) would be in the neighborhood of 1/8" so VERY slow drainage. The ONLY option in my case would be to drill the drain hole larger, re-thread and put in a suitably large valve. I wouldn't dream of doing this with the pump in place and it isn't quite enough of a PIA (yet) to take the pump out and do it properly...Yup, anneal the copper washer and re-use.
