Unless you need water pressure for sprinklers, turn OFF your water
main, turn OFF the gas, turn OFF the water heater. When you turn
your heater back on, follow the directions on the tank, it's usually
Its only a week the tank wont cool to room temp for maybe 3 days, id
just turn it down. Be sure to turn off the water incomming main
incase a pipe breaks, that can ruin a house in days. I used to leave
for 3-4 days and turn off my tank, it was electric and still had maybe
80f water after many days. 140f costs alot more money than 120, I only
heat my tank to what is needed for a hot water only shower.
