Question about Rheem 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 22V50F1
You buy a new water heater AND have a QUALIFIED person from your gas supply company or a qualified plumber install it.
You bypass that valve and you're just asking to blow up yourself, your family, and possibly any nearby neighbors. They'll be picking up pieces of your house a quarter mile away.
As the other posters said, too, any means of bypassing this valve is in violation of all kinds of local, state, and federal laws, voids your warranty, and will definitely be found by the fire marshal when they try to determine what caused your house to suddenly explode, thereby ruining your chances at getting a settlement from your insurance company. They may even classify it as arson. All points considered, and no offense intended, it would be downright stupid given the safety implications.
Go to YouTube and search "propane explosion" or "natural gas explosion".
