Draining the Internal Water Tank of Your Keurig B150, K150, B155, K155, K150P, or B150P Brewer

Time needed: 10 minutes.

Learn how to drain the internal hot and cold water reservoirs of your Keurig B150, K150, K155, B155, K150P, B150P, K3000, K3000SE, B3000, B3000SE, or Keurig OfficePro Premier Commercial Brewing Systems.

  1. Unplug & Disconnect Your Brewer

    Ensure that your Brewer is powered off by unplugging it from your power supply. If you have your Brewer connected to a Direct Water Line Supply, be sure to disconnect the Brewer from your water supply before continuing to the next step.

  2. Remove the Access Panel

    Find the Access Panel located on the back of your Brewer. Using a screwdriver, remove the securing screw.

  3. Locate & Drain the Drain Tubes

    You should see 2 water line drain tubes: one for the Cold Water Tank and the other for the Hot Water Tank. Lower the tube leading to whichever water tank you wish to drain, remove the Plug, and drain the water into a suitably-sized container.

  4. Replace the Access Panel

    When draining is finished, replace the Plug(s) on the drain tubes and replace the Access Panel with the screw.

  3. Jennifer A Powell

    When I did this the cold water tube had some black residue up in it. Can that be cleaned?

      Hi Jennifer:

      The black residue is called ‘scaling’ which happens when the minerals in your water attach to the insides of your Keurig (this also can happen with your plumbing as well). To clean this we recommend using one of the readily available Descaling Solutions on the market, or you can simply use white vinegar. You can prevent this from happening in the future by installing a Direct Water Line Filter Kit. We recommend the PureWater Filters brand, as they specifically include a scale inhibitor in their filters.
