How do I install a water heater?

The steps to install a water heater are pretty basic, however the actual installation is not as easy as the steps make it seem!

  • Shut-off water and gas/electric supply to the existing water heater and start draining the water out of the tank
  • Disconnect the existing water heater from the water, gas/electric supply and remove the vent
  • Move the old water heater out of the way and replace with the new water heater
  • Reconnect the water supply, gas/electric supply, vent system
  • Turn the new water heater on and check for any leaks
  • When complete go each faucet in the home and open to remove air from the water lines
