It looks like you have the valves set correct for use.

BTW, The blue hose valve is the incoming cold water valve. The Red hose valve is for the Hot output. The center valve is a bypass. Currently the two supply hoses are ON and the bypass is OFF.

Suggestion. If you print out the picture and place a copy near your water heater it might help in the future. Don't ask why I'm making the suggestion.

Does the valve in the first picture have a short section of non connected hose attached. If so this valve is for your winterization. Turned toward the short section of hose it will draw in antifreeze. Turned the other way it will draw from your fresh water tank.
