Should you experience an unexpected water heater emergency, we've got you covered!
Step 1: If your water heater runs on electricity, turn off the circuit breaker. If the water heater is gas turn off the pilot off. Wait for at least one hour, depending on how high your water temperature settings are. The hotter the water, the longer it needs to cool down.
Step 2: Take your garden hose and attach it at the bottom of your water heater's drain valve. Place the other end of the hose where you want to drain your water heater.
Step 3: Shut off the cold-water pipe (This is located at the top of the water heater)

Step 4: Drain the water heater by opening the drain valve at the bottom. (There might be a handle, or you may need a screwdriver to open this valve. This can take several hours if the water heater hasn’t been flushed in a long time!
Step 5: When the water is clear or stops draining from the water heater, then turn on the cold water at the shut off valve. This will pressure flush all the sediment like the minerals out of the tank. Do this for several minutes (or longer if the water heater hasn’t been flushed before).
Step 6: Close the drain valve at the bottom of the water heater. Disconnect the hose and make sure nothing is leaking, Let the water heater refill. While doing so, turn on the hot water in your kitchen sink to release any air from the line.When the tank is completely full, turn on the electricity or gas again.
