    Default Access to Shutoff Valves is for Sissies

    At some point during the design process, somebody thought this was a good idea.

    Is that a shut off for a hydronic heat circuit?

    The big red handle that photo bombed my pic? Yes.

    Nick, I think you are making a big deal out of a mole hill. The valves are easily accessible and here is my step by step recommendation:
    1. Move water heater.
    2. Access valves.
    3. Replace water heater.

    Simple.

    My take on it is different. At no point in the process did anyone think.

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.
