Turn the valve between the cold water "in" and the hot water "out" off.

Isn't there also a valve located between the hot and cold water. This is the one that must be closed.

This should read "This is the valve you should close as it may be open"

There's a labelled photo of the valves on post #27 that Herk used.

Water heater?
