Your 'In' would be the connection he shows with a dip tube.  'Out' of course
is the red pipe from the top.  I'm pretty sure that the side port he shows
is where the TPR valve would go normally.  Since the heater in the tank is
disabled (making it effectively just an insulated storage tank), the TPR
valve is not needed.
