Insects like to crawl up lines and build nests that cause blockages. Mud daubers are especially bad about it around here.

I wasn't blowing air up the low point drains for hot and cold water. It was the fresh water drain which also looks like a low point drain but is the fresh water drain. I pushed up the drain a coat hanger wire and felt a blockage and after going up and down for awhile it went up and drained the tank. I filled it and drained it and everything is fine. There must be some debris that blocked it.


That's awesome, glad you figured it out.

Also, the people building these things don't much like to clean tanks out after installing them and also have a nasty habit of dropping fitting cutouts back into the tank instead of pulling them out. How many of us have read about this when a black/grey tank won't drain?
