turning off water
 
I am going away for a week, and I want to turn off my water. I have this fear that my 15 year old water heater in going to go and I will come back to 20,000 gallons of water on my floor.

is there any problems with turning off the water to my house.

will some rubber seals dry and crack?

Will some thing use water and my hot water heater empty and the elements overheat?

Is there any issues with turning off my water?

Turn off the power to the tank also, other then that, have a safe trip. All should be fine.
