Avoid Water Damage
Old water heaters, especially if not periodically flushed by a trained service technician, can leak. To avoid damage, follow these steps:
- Turn OFF gas or electric. For gas, turn the top dial from the on position to off. For electric, turn off power at circuit breaker panel.
- Turn OFF water supply by turning the handle clockwise until it stops.
- If necessary to avoid damage, drain the water heater by attaching a garden hose to the drain faucet of the water heater. Be careful, water may still be HOT.
