I just want to say that you should be careful in plumbing your hot water because plumbing is not an easy work. If you are plumbing with copper, be sure to sweat fittings onto pipe before attaching it to the heater.

You should find an expert plumber to make the pipe fitting for you. The water heater should need some repair too.
