After making your connections, open a hot and cold water faucet before you turn the water on. This will allow air in the lines to escape. Do not turn on the water heater power or light the gas until water is flowing from the open hot water faucet. It would be a very good idea to visually inspect all of the lines to check for any leaks. Even if none are apparent, you can use the water meter to check. Make sure everything is closed and watch the meter. If there is even a small leak, the dial will move. If there are no leaks, the dial will not move.
