Well, there is no dumb question, so you’re off the hook! :cool:  Whatever the city water pressure is, is what you get.  Find a water pressure gauge that you can screw onto a hose bibb.  It should read from 0-200 psi. With that, you can check pressure and know what’s up.  Putting pressure on the heater is simply done by hooking up the garden hose and leaving it turned on.  Do make sure all air is purged from the tank.  You don’t want a big volume of compressed air trying to blow things up!

Larry, help me out with this one. I thought compressed liquid was more dangerous than compressed air. When Mythbusters eliminated the T&P valve on a water heater and turned the heat to “high” that thing blew through the floor, the ceiling and the roof! Just curious….
