Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

These small 120 volt heaters have to b disconnected from the piping then dumped out to drain. I'm assuming this model, like almost all of them, only has piping connections on top
