Part arrived next day. The nylon cage around bladder was the wrong configuration, ie.the tab for attaching was horizontal instead of vertical. I replaced it with the old cage and installation was a breeze, same day.
Hot water inlet is indeed the top inlet.

With all this, the overflow pan sprung a leak( the washing machine is on the second floor) oh joy. :tickedoff:

Thank you for your help.

Glad you got it fixed. It's been awhile sense I have done one of these, but as i recall you can use the new 'nylon cage' and just mount it with a plastic zip tie.

Thanks for the update.  O0
