When we leave our cottage for two months, we intend to shut off the water
someone said we should NOT shut off the water unless also shut off the gas
water heater, too.?? Any help or advice appreciated.thanks RichG
There is no safety reason to shut off the gas to the heater;
it won't siphon itself empty.
You could set the gas control (thermostat) to "PILOT" or "VACATION";
that will keep the pilot lit and the water at minimum temp.
