2. Set up your water heater
The next step is to set up your water heater. This can be done by running a pipe from the main supply line into your home and then connecting it to your water heater. You will need to make sure that your water heater is the right size for your home and that it is properly installed.

However, if you are not familiar with plumbing, it’s always a good idea to hire a professional to help you. They will be able to properly install your fixtures and make sure that everything is working correctly.
