Jarrod, I brought in a 14AWG cord-set for the water heater yesterday.  I left it in the box with the other parts under the sink.  I removed most of the teflon tape on the heater pipe threads, because the fittings being used have built in gaskets, and pipe thread tape should not be used.  I also cleaned up most of the mess around the sink.  I found a half full can of red paint without a lid on the sink.  I put it in a bucket on the floor.

The water heater is a very old model, (Powerstar 45-552704), and I do not know if it still works.  The manuals are not available for this model.

I checked the water heater in rest room.  It seems to be the same model.  I measured the voltage, which was 113 V.  It seems to supply reasonably warm water at this lower than nameplate voltage.  The water heater is a very old model, (Powerstar 45-552704), and I do not know if it still works.

I couldn't solve a couple of problems.  The cold water valve on the wall does not turn off completely, and I was afraid to start work, without being able to turn off the water.  These under-sink valves always seem to leak.  We may have to shut off the water further upstream.

Another problem is that the faucet should be replaced.  The cold water handle is missing and the stem is stripped.  We will need a tee so that both hot and cold water can be supplied.
