Default Need water heater education

learning still, found water heater and the power on switch, what is start up procedure, gas, or elec, or both and how to fill hot water tank.

Most critical thing is to make sure there is water in the tank before you light it up. Hook up the water, turn on the pump, and open a hot water faucet till the water starts to run out. Then the water heater is ready to light.

Might be a good idea to remove the anode and flush the tank first. And if the anode is shot, get a new one. And let us know if this is all Greek to you -- always happy to explain more, if necessary! The only dumb question is the one not asked.
