AWARNING
HYDROGEN GAS: Hydrogen gas can be produced in a
hot water system that has not been used for a long period of tlme (generally two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas
is extremely flammable and explosive. To prevent the
possibil;ty of injury under these cond;tions, we recommend the hot water faucet be opened for several minutes at the kitchen s;nk before any electrical appl;ances
wh;ch are connected to the hot water system are used
(such as a dishwasher or wash;ng machine). If hydrogen
gas ls present, there will probably be an unusual sound

faucet is opened. There must be no smoking or open
