Default Some rust in water heater tube -- just blow it out with air!

The inner workings of the water heater got very dusty, so I took my compressor and blew air on it -- lots of rust came shooting out the tube where the burner blows hot flame into the heater! It took a few minutes of blowing, but all of the rust flakes eventually flew out.

I don't know if the rust is a problem -- I would have thought that they would make the tube out of stainless steel, since burning propane releases a lot of water vapor, I think.

Anyway, just a heads up -- perhaps we should use air routinely to keep that tube clean.
