Element Cleaning or Replacement The heating elements in the water heater will require periodic cleaning. The frequency is determined in part by the quality of the water in your area. Refer to the manufacturer’s literature for step-by-step instructions and drawings, or contact an authorized service company. Pressure Relief Valve At least once each year, manually operate the pressure relief valve. Stay clear of the discharge line to avoid injury. Refer to the manufacturer’s literature for diagrams and detailed instructions. Safety Keep the area around a water heater clear of stored household items. Never use the top of the water heater as a storage shelf. Water Temperature The water heater temperature is preset by the manufacturer. Century Communities nor our subcontractors alter this setting. If you require a higher water temperature, you will need to adjust it. The adjustment of the water temperature is not a covered warranty item. This is your responsibility.
TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS: NO HOT WATER
Before calling for service, check to confirm that:
• The water heater breaker on your main electric panel is in the on position. (Remember if a breaker trips, you must turn it from the tripped position to the off position before you can turn it back on). • The temperature setting is not too low. • The water supply valve is open. Refer to the manufacturer’s literature for specific locations of these items and possibly other troubleshooting tips. Even if the trouble shooting tips do not identify a solution, the information you gather will be useful to the service provider you call.

Homeowner Care and Maintenance Before trouble shooting your gas water heater, check for the odor of gas. If you smell gas, call your gas supplier immediately and have them check for leaks.
