I had to put water in my antifreeze compartment to get my vehicle home.  Now I need to

There may not be one. For some vehicles you just need to disconnect the lower radiator hose and let it drain. After draining, let the engine turn over for about 10-15 seconds to purge the coolant inside the engine. Just be sure to disconnect the distributor coil lead to insure the engine does not run.
