Hydrogen gas can be produced in an operating water heater

 

 

that has not had water drawn from the tank for a long period

 

 

of time (generally two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is

 

 

extremely flammable. To prevent the possibility of injury

 

 

under these conditions, we recommend that the water faucet

 

 

be opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink before you

 

 

use any electrical appliance that is connected to the hot water

 

 

system. If hydrogen is present, there will be unusual sounds

 

 

such as air escaping through the pipes as hot water begins to

 

 

flow. Do not smoke or have open flame near the faucet at the

 

 

time it is open.
