As mentioned, the wording in the photo is incorrect. Pay no attention to that.
Look at the handles on the valves. Notice how they are oblong?
When the long part of the handle is in-line or parallel to the plumbing line, the valve is open. (The hot and cold valves are open in the photo)
The bypass valve handle is cross-ways or perpendicular to the plumbing line and is closed.
This is how your valves should be positioned for normal non-winterized use.
Some valves have levers for handles instead of oblong handles but the positioning is the same.
