Locate the cold water supply line feeding the top of the water heater and turn the valve clockwise until it closes. If valve does not close, shut off water to the house at the main valve.
Locate the water heater drain at the bottom of the water heater. Connect a garden hose and drain the hot water to a harmless location. Open a hot water faucet inside the home to allow air to enter the water heater while draining.
