(1) TURN OFF ELECTRICITY OR GAS:
Electric: Switch the water heater circuit breaker from the ON position to the OFF position.
Gas: Turn the dial on the top of the thermostat from the ON to the OFF position.
(2) TURN OFF WATER SUPPLY. Turn the handle on the water valve CLOCKWISE until it stops. Turn off the main water valve for the entire house if it does not stop by turning the handle.
(3) DRAIN WATER HEATER. At the bottom of the tank attach a hose to th drain valve. Position the other end of the hose to lower place and drain rusty, hot water to an area that it will not cause damage. Let air into the tank by opening a hot water faucet in the house.
