Water heater element replacement FAQ

Can I open the water heater relief valve to drain the tank?

Yes you can but its not recommended. The relief valve handle
is spring loaded, if it snaps shut it could damage the valve.

Why do you recommend opening the kitchen faucet instead
of the faucet nearest the water heater?

When you drain and fill an older water heater there will be a lot
of calcium deposits, rust and sediment flowing through the water
line. If a faucet stem becomes clogged the kitchen faucet is the
easiest to work on.
