What happens to the plumbing. When you shake the water heater? I would be concerned.

Thats like please check the oil in my car but dont use the dipp stick ! LOL Pull the valve covers off instead ! They have to give you more reason then NO dont use the method staring you in the face. Your supposed to open them once a year to drain out the dirt at the bottom.
