Plus, it exercises the valve, something that should be done quarterly  
with all shutoffs in the house.

As for the restrictions on DIY water heater, here in MA no one but a  
licenced plumber can touch any part of the domestic water or sewerage  
system. They won't give a permit to a non-licensed.

And the past year or two they extended that to electrical permits, and  
you also can no longer renovate a house for resale if you're not going  
to live in it.
