    If you like hot water to the toilet, hot water to ice maker if you have one, and all faucet reversed when turned on, then no it will not matter,

    It will have no effect on the icemaker, faucets, or anything else. You WILL run out of hot water sooner since you will just be using the lower third, or less, of the tank's hot water. Just criss/cross the connections if you used flexible connectors to install it.
