The one way valves are closed when the oval handle is perpendicular to the hose. Open when "in line."

The entire article is awesome.

This pic shows the set up with 2 valves. You may have three which would include one on the hot water line going out of the tank. All valves are closed when the valve handle is perpendicular to the water line and open when it is parallel.
For normal operation (as shown in the pic), open the valves going in and out of the tank and close the bypass. Set the valves just the opposite for winterization.

I don't have the oval handles but this helps, the bypass is operated in the winter by turning it in lin and turning the others off?

That should do it.

If everything is working properly now, look at the positions of your valve handles. You should be able to turn each one the opposite and that should set you up to winterize.
