we have a 1995 electric ao smith water heater,the drain plug is leaking from inside the heater,the drain plug is plastic,and needs to be replaced,we have tried putting a channel lock on it ,to loosen it ,with no luck,does this type of drain plug have threads on it,or is it some how permanently installed,the replacement plug we bought, has threads on it, does any one out there know how to solve this issue,we sprayed WD40 on the plug ,to help loosen it up ,still no luck, the whole drain assembly needs replaced,not just the handle, thks for any suggetions
