Water Heater Shut Off Instructions – Electric or Gas

Both electric and gas water heaters can be turned off by following the steps below. Use the diagram to find out where each step is done on the water heater.


Electricity: Switch the water heater's circuit breaker from "ON" to "OFF."
Gas: Turn off the dial at the top of the thermostat.

(2) TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY. Turn the handle CLOCKWISE until the water stops coming out. If turning the handle doesn't stop the water, turn off the main water valve for the whole house.

(3) DRAIN WATER HEATER. Connect a hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the tank. Place the other end of the hose down low and let the rusty, hot water drain somewhere it won't hurt anything. Open a hot water faucet in the house to let air into the tank.

(4) OPEN THE RELIEF VALVE. Turn the handle so it sticks out straight or up. BE CAREFUL, because boiling hot water could be let out

Do It Yourself Maintenance Tips

Regular maintenance is key to keeping your water heater in top condition. One simple tip is to drain the water from the tank every three months to prevent sediment buildup and improve energy efficiency. But be sure to turn off the power before doing so, or you risk injury.

If water is leaking from the bottom of your water heater, this usually means there is a crack in the tank inside, and you will need a new water heater.
