plumber error? "C" running "H" water


A plumber came to fix a busted pipe near the hot water heater-now when I turn off the water at the ground, i am still getting water in both faucets but it's all hot coming out both. Did he cross something?

why do you have a hot water heater? I use mine to heat the cold water. I figure it makes no sense to heat water that is already hot.



just joking.

Legitimate question: What are you turning off "at the ground"? If it is the main water supply, you may have some residual pressure on the water heater. Then if you open both faucets on one fixture you will get hot water out of each as the water "bleeds over" from one side to the other. BUT- this should not last but for a few seconds. As stated; this is IF you are shutting off the main water feed to the house.
Please clarify what you are turning off "at the ground". David
