Cold water goes into the water heater at the bottom and hot water comes out the top. When the external water supply is not connected (i.e. no hose connected to the water fill), what keeps the water from running out of the water heater and out the fill opening?

A check valve built into the city water hose connection.

BTW, it's not a dumb question. If we don't ask, we won't know!

No such thing as a dumb question; only dumb answers.

Wow Ted, I new you were all knowing but I didn't realize you were God! I will certainly treat you with the respect you deserve from this day forward.

Now can we expect you to fix all of WRV's problems?
I, for one, will be praying that it is so.

Jerry & Judy, as you know nothing is for free. Contributions are accepted in very large denominations. If not large you know where you and they will end up!!!!
As you realize having absolutely no answer to the question I thought mine would be safe and appropriate.
I understand that WRV has been exempt from this and must take care of their own problems.

By the way, where is Oregon Coyote? We have not heard from him in ages. I truly hope he is okay.
