There should be a shut off on the cold water line at the tank. If not, you have to shut the whole house off.

Turn off the water, you do not need to turn off the heater itself.

Same as any hot water heater. Turn the gas valve to off.

Turn it off at the fuise box, whyheat water when your not there

YES and No Yes if you are going to be working on the gas water heater and No if you are working on a cold water line and if you are working on a hot water line you can shut off the gas or electric to the water heater so in case your water heater drains but what I usually do is just turn the water heater's water supply valve off.

It's not a bad idea to turn off the water heater especially if it is electric. It will consume power the whole time you are gone to keep the water hot and wastes a lot of electricity.

Yes. I would. If you are replacing the hot water lines, it is also a good time to drain the hot water heater and get rid of all the junk at the bottom of the hot water heater. That should be done once a year. Your hot water heater must be off when you do that, your hot water heater should be off when you drain your hot water heater. You will see boiler scale come out of your water heater. Leaving the boiler scale in your water heater makes it less efficient. It makes it harder to heat your water. It is the same as throwing money down the drain. If you want to give your money away, you should give it to the Salvation Army instead of the Utility Company.

Yes there is supposed to be a shut off on the cold water feed to tank. It is recommended you shut of the breaker for power or gas supply to heater first. there should not be a shut off between fixtures and hot water tank on hot side.

Without having a stop in the run you'll have to turn off the system, unless...If it is the hot water side you can turn it off at the water heater.

Over time, sediment can build up in your hot water heater, degrading performance and greatly shortening its lifespan. Cleaning out your hot water heater is a fairly easy project. First, turn off the gas or electricity to your heater, hook a garden hose to the boiler drain and turn the cold water inlet valve on. Turn on a hot water faucet in your home. After the water drains, turn your cold water inlet valve back on. Keep the hot valves on and run water until it runs without any air before you turn on the electricity or gas.

The thermostats sense the heat and turn off and on accordingly.

Turn off electric to water heater, depending on style, gas water heater may need electric turned off to it also. Turn off gas for gas water heater. If unfamiliar with removing and installing water heater, call a plumber.

You first have to get to know your water heater. Some people can turn it on for two hours and have enough hot water for two days. Any time the water heater is turned off the consumer is saving money.

I would`nt... It serves no purpose. If the water is off there is no pressure when you turn on the tap, hot or cold, so you would be heating water you can`t use.

Yes, make sure you turn off power to the water heater. Also shut off the icemaker. No. Just turn it off. Just remember to turn it back on before you open any of your inside faucets. And you also need to turn off the hot water heater.

There is a safe and slow way to do it, by turning off the water to the heater and removing both vacuum breakers and then opening the drain valve to the hot water heater. You can now drain it, which can take about one hour. However, depending on where the hot water heater is positioned, lets assume above a bath or outside installation, you can turn the hot water off and open the flange on the face of the geyser and drain it in about one minute.

First find the water inlet pipe, normally the one closest to the ground. Before it enters the water heater there should be a valve with a round head or cross head, turn that clockwise till it stops.Ensure that you aren't turning off the gas supply if your hot water heater is gas fired.your hot water heater will retain a little pressure in it, so you will need to turn a tap on to relieve the pressure.From the heater.Above the hot water (outlet side of the tank) there should be a valve such as a ball / gate and in some rare cases a globe. If the installer was not a professional then you may have to shut the in let valve located on the cold water side of the tankTurn off the valve and this will cut off the H/W supply to the building.

It will keep the water hot as long as the electricity or gas is on. If it's going to be off more than a day, turn the breaker or gas valve off.

your car gets warm............ or hot........

Turn off to replace or service. Turn off if away from home for extended amount of time, such as vacation.

Turn on your bathtub or shower hot then turn it off at last turn on your hot water for your sink. Hope this helps!
