    If I rotate the picture 180 degrees, I could take a sample. 😂

    Needs a sample valve in the bottom plug. Not a pipe plug.

    I came across the same thing on some transformers that were built for a local utility out here in California.

    You have to open the highlighted (yellow) bolted dummy cover for the drain valve
