What to do if your water heater fails:

On average, water heaters last 8-12 years before needing to be replaced, and even the best cared for water heaters will fail sooner or later.

1) Turn off gas or electricity.

2) Turn off the water supply.

3) Carefully open the pressure release valve.

*WARNING: Be careful of scalding hot water.

4) Drain the water using the drain valve.

When in doubt, call a plumber!
