The Gas Man Cometh

We have two gas water heaters.  One is a little box above our kitchen sink, the other heats the water for the shower/bath.  A man from the gas company visited the apartments in our building to check out the water heaters.  Everything was fine with ours and he left us this information sheet (front and back).

Not being able to read, I can only look at the pictures and guess at what it says. I think the big red X means don’t do it.  I was surprised to see the red X on the person washing hair in kitchen the sink because I sometimes do that.

The one at the bottom of the front page is kind of scary.  The X is in the kitchen but the dad with the spiral eyes is washing the kodomo’s hair in the bath. Is the dad in the tub or is the kodomo in the tub?  I don’t know what the pink arrows from the pipe to the tub and from the tub to the kitchen mean. What do you think?


  1. One can only assume that spiral-eyed Dad is doing what he should be and is outside the tub.
    The guessing game is fun isn't it! Looks like the pink arrows are to show that if you have the expel-air fan on in the kitchen at the same time as the hot water heater in the bathroom, then dangerous gases can travel the pink line and cause problems!
    I do hope you have a great day and make lots of progress on your current stitching.

  2. Maybe not to leave it unattended? Since it looks like there is water in both places?
