Water Heater shutdown instructions

TURN OFF GAS OR ELECTRICITY

-Gas-

1

Turn the gas supply off.

2

Rotate the dial to the off position.

-Electric-

Switch the circuit breaker for the water heater to the OFF position.

TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY

Turn the handle on the water valve CLOCKWISE until it stops. If the water does not stop, turn off the main water valve for the entire house.

OPEN THE RELIEF VALVE

Flip handle so it is sticking straight out or up. (CAUTION: Scalding hot water)


-Leaking Water Heater-

Turn off the cold water line that feeds your water heater. This valve should be directly above the water heater. If it does not shut off completely, turn off the main shut-off valve to the house.

Gas Water Heater

The gas line for a Gas Water Heater is a black or yellow pipe that connects to the water heater gas valve (the box near the bottom of the water heater with the temperature selection dial). The gas valve typically has a red handle. Turn this valve 90 degrees to shut it off.

Electric Water Heater

Shut off the circuit breaker for the Electric Water Heater in the electrical panel.

If the leaking water is not running to a floor drain, connect a garden hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the heater and run it to the nearest drain. The drain valve will have either a handle like an outside faucet or a screwdriver stop, in which case you will need a flat screw driver to open the valve.
