In this manner, how do I turn off the gas to my water heater?
All gas appliances have a separate shut-off valve, and it's usually found within a few feet of the appliance. To find the gas shut-off valve on your water heater, simply look for a single handle, which is usually located at the bottom of the unit. To turn off the gas, turn this valve clockwise.
Also, do you have to turn off hot water heater when turning off water? Water is turned off, water is drained somewhere in the house, to relieve pressure. In rare circumstances, you could also get a buildup of dangerous pressure if the relief valve were to fail. So, yes, please turn off your water heater when you turn off your water main.
Herein, what does a gas shut off look like?
Houses with natural gas have a main shutoff valve (Fig. A) located just before the gas meter. This valve, often called the street-side valve, is normally a rectangular nub (Photo 1). When the long side of the nub or handle is parallel to the incoming gas line, it's open and the gas is flowing.
Can a water heater explode?
If the temperature is set too high or the pressure relief valve of a water heater malfunctions, a water heater can explode. This can happen with a gas or electric hot water heater. Although it is unlikely for water heaters to explode, when they do, they operate much the same as a rocket.
