Connect the other ends of the braided hoses to the water-supply bibs as in Step 3. Make sure to match the hot hose with the hot-water supply and the cold with the cold supply. Open the valves and check for leaks. Reconnect the drain hose to the drain. But if you're installing a drip pan (Step 5), reconnect the drain hose after the pan is in place.
