Are you on a well?

If so you need to get out of that house right now and go somewhere else.

If not, then you can turn off the power to the tank at your breaker box, close the gas line (if that's what you have), then hook up a hose to the tank and drain it off.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 41713542


Don't want to burn out your water heater.
Make sure to shut off the power.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 40176500


Precisely. It shocks folks who have never had a power/water outage when it happens, but when it lasts more than two hours, it ratchets up their anxiety.

When that happens, people don't think about the consequences of their actions. Since there is either an electrical element that heats the water or gas that is ignited (again electrical) and then burned to heat that volume of water, then one shuts off those things to be safe, if one draws that water to use for drinking water or cleaning.

Save all of your discarded water and don't use clean water since it is so limited to flush with. Flush with the waste water.

GLP must really, I mean really suffering from lack of doom for this to get pinned.

Should make a thread, "WTF, GLP has no doom to report"
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 36710191


GLP is currently experiencing doom inflation. The unfortunate consequence of printing too much doom is, the more doom you have the more you need.

Re: Just got calls from two neigbors saying they don't have running water...
They were asking if mine was out as well - just checked multiple faucets and it is all good here, but this is very strange. One neighbor is right next door, 200 feet to the west. The other is about a quarter mile to the east. We all have city water.

This is is SE Pennsylvania (Berks county specifically).

And wonderful - as I write this, my wife just called out saying ours is out as well now. WTF?

sounds like you got a water main break close to your area

Also remember if you drain it, then it must be filled back up with city water before heating it back up. Otherwise you'd burn out the electrical element (if it's electrically operated).

Gas hot water tanks either must be manually re-lit or they have a electrical igniter when a button is pressed while the gas is on.

As a prepper of many decades, the humorous thing is:

1 A person experiences a water outage and then decides that notifying the GLP community is important.
2. Versus a prepper who would calmly make two calls, then go buy some water, check the hot water tank, and be completely calm and relaxed.

Priorities, Hoss. Stabilize a situation then report in.

As a prepper, when everyone else is eating cold soup, I'll be having fresh baked bread, canned peach jam, and completely at peace with a hot meal. Everyone will be safe and snug and warm.
