If you experience a leaking water heater, it is recommended to turn off the water to your tank. You will then need to turn off the power supply. If you have an electric water heater, turn your power off at the breaker. If you have a gas water heater, you can turn off the gas at the dedicated gas shut off valve on the gas line leading to the tank.
