Recommended Posts

This switch that is on the wall close to the laundry plumbing was turn off and I turn it on to see what it turned on.

I looked around and could not see any light that it turn on.

It turn out it controlled the power supply to the water heater which was in the store room behind the laundry.

It does not look like a 240 volt switch.

You would have to remove the cover to know for sure.

One of the switch in the photo is 240 volt, Can you tell the difference?

We don't have electric water heater here but if we did I'd insist in having a disconnect switch nearby to service it safely or have a means of shutting it down in the event of an emergency.
