      Turn off water , and loosen union and take out nipple and plug the fitting, better do them both, I dont know how you have pipe run but if you do this do you have any water supply to pool. Let me know.

      You most likely have galvanized waterlines to and from the heater. As Art said, there should be unions at the heater that you can take apart. Caps or plugs of the correct size can be bought at any plumbing supply house. However, if the galvanized piping is leaking, it could just be a matter of replacing a nipple which should be a fairly easy task since you’ll already have it disassembled to cap.
