The key for tank water heaters is to make sure every component is tuned upbefore a winter storm. If you’re preparing for a freeze, you should drain your water heater by following these steps:
The location of your water shut-off is essential knowledge as a homeowner. Still, if you’ve never had to use it, then the detail might have fallen off your priority list.
Homes with basements or crawl spaces usually have the shut-off valve inside at the front of the home. If your home is on a slab, your main valve is likely to be near your water heater or in your garage.
Another possible location is in a water meter box near your street. You’ll need a water meter key to open the box. Once opened, turn the handle 90 degrees clockwise to shut off your water. If you have trouble locating your water shut-off valve, don’t hesitate to call ABACUS at 713-766-3605
