I live in a manufactured home. After a fire last year the plumbing guys cut the water line to my outside spiket. Because of the insulation under the house I can't find the place where they disconnected it. I have purchased all new plumbing to install a new line myself. My problem: I found the main water line from the well under my house and it runs directly to my water heater which comes from the floor. I have three pipes - one I know is the gas line - the other comes from the floor and is connected to the top of the water heater on the left side. The third comes from the floor and is connected to the right SIDE of the water heater about 2/3 down from the top. Which line would I tap into to add the outside line OR should I just tap into the main line under the house?

The line to the water heater that is about 2/3 of the way down is the incoming cold water. Either tap into that, or tap into the main water line for the house, whichever is easiest.

THE COLD LINE IS THE ONE THAT ENTERS ON THE
RIGHT HAND SIDE ON THE TOP OF THE HEATER AND
IS USUALLY ALWAYS MARKED AS COLD..
