Oops, I was composing when this came in.
I also see where the anode is…big hex top on it.
I’ll try what you suggest.
There are 3 lines on the top of your heater. One is the cold water supply in, one is the hot water out, the other is the temp and pressure relief valve. (the one with the white tag)
First run some hot water from the taps you plan on testing.
The line with the valve on the wall should be the cold in, shut that valve off, then open a hot tap, and leave it open for a while.
If no water runs then no cross connection.
If water runs and it is hot and stays hot, the shutoff valve is leaking.
If water runs and it is hot then turns to cold, you have a cross connection.
