If you really don't want to call a plumber for such a simple job, you may be in for a big education! It is not very likely that the water heater does not REALLY have a shut off, it's more likely that you haven't been able to find it. You can do the same job by simply turning off the cold water to the entire house, unless of course.....there isn't a shutoff for the house supply either.


: Hello,

: I am going to replace the heating element on my Reliance 501 water heater. I went to shut off the water to the tank so that I could drain it, and I cannot find the shut off! I have located the Cold In, Hot Out, all all the other major parts of the tanks "anatomy". This seems ridiculous, but is it possible that there isn't a shut off?

: I look forward to any advice that you can offer as I REALLY don't want to call a plumber for such a simple job.

: Thanks!
: Johanna
