If you have a hot water leak in your home, or your Water heater is leaking, locate the Water heater. It is usually in the utility room of a home with basement, or near the laundry room of a home without a basement. There will be 2 water pipes coming out of the heater on top. On one or both of those pipes will be a shut-off valve. If it is an older style gate valve (see picture), turn the round handle clockwise to the right until it stops. If it is a newer style Ball lever valve, rotate the handle until it is crosswise on the pipe (most will stop in that position).
