Water heater

The most common overhead-plumbed water heater hookup is. Before you can connect the new heater, the old one must be removed.  First, turn off the heater. Next, drain the heater. Open a hot water faucet to allow air into the system.

 On a heater, separate the vent pipe from the draft hood. The hood should lift off after you remove the sheet metal screw that holds it. After checking that the pilot light is out, disconnect the line at the heater and cap it.

Next, remove the heater from its water piping. If the pipes are connected with unions–removable threaded fittings–take them apart with a pair of pipe wrenches. Pipes without unions must be hack-sawed off. A pipe/tubing cutter will also do the job. The old heater can now be removed and disposed of in an approved manner.
