Your best bet,
Turn off the cold water supply at the incoming main,
Turn off the supply to the water heater, and loosen the flex supplies so the water can't siphon out of the tank and into the water lines.
Open ever fixture in the house including whatever is upstairs and let them drain down.
Cut the line you are soldering, pull down the pipe to drain out, reconnect and solder.
When done, turn off all the faucets, tighten the flex connectors, and turn the valves back on.
