it means "it's all over", often for a bad reason. so you can do your things you are supposed to do when it's all over for a bad reason. for example if there are nuclear bombs flying to you, you can take a white sheet and slowly crawl to a cemetry. why slowly? to avoid creating the panic.

Put out the light (the meaning of phraseology) - bad (about the event, performance, etc.).

The phrase "Put out the light" was born in the theater. Until the beginning of the 20th century, the theater, during the performance, was lit by candles. If the viewer did not like the performance, then he could put out (blow out) the candle next to him, showing his displeasure. If all the candles in the theater were extinguished, then the performance ceased.

Therefore, they began to speak of a poor performance, "Put out the light." - This is the end. It's all over. -"Это финиш."- "This is the finish." :)
-"Всё, тушите свет, представление окончено." "- Всё, окончен бал, погасли свечи" . "сливай воду"- не слышала- откуда (значение), не знаю.

PS Можно сказать- "Тушите свет!" - "It's incredible!"

well, the myth is that тушите свет, сливайте воду comes from drivers who had to do that when the truck breaks (or stops) in winter. you had to turn off the light to save the battery and drain the water from radiator to avoid its destruction when the water turns into ice.

На самом деле, среди здешних мифов вполне годное и правдоподобное объяснение.

И как всегда, отвечают в подавляющем большинстве не те, для кого это предназначено, а русскоязычные... Для интуристов всё это слишком сложно.

Интуристу нужен уровень минимум С1. Много встречали таких интуристов? :) Сами дотягиваете?
