Shut Down Water Heater

TO AVOID DAMAGE WHEN YOUR WATER HEATER IS LEAKING:

1) TURN THE GAS OR ELECTRIC OFF:

GAS: Twist the dial on top of the thermostat from the ON to OFF position

ELECTRIC: turn the power supply off to the water heater at the circuit breaker

2) TURN THE WATER SUPPLY OFF

Twist the handle on the water valve, above the water heater clockwise until it stops. If water does not stop, turn off the main water valve.

3) DRAIN WATER HEATER IF NECESSARY TO AVOID WATER DAMAGE

Attach a garden hose to the drain faucet connection at the bottom of the water heater. Run the other end of the hose to a lower location where hot or rusty water won’t cause damage.

4) PULL HANDLE UP ON RELIEF VALVE to allow air to enter the heater
