WH has plumbing holes with 1/2" pipe thread.
Going from there different TC builders use different materials.
Copper usually have flare fitting. Plastic pipes, compress washers.
If you are not familiar how to deal with it, better call professional.
Small crack on the tubing in hard to access space can turn pretty costly mistake.

They all use some type of compression fitting for the transition, but PEX requires a crimp collar and a specialized tool to apply it

Pictures would be helpful. That way Mr. Biscuit won't wear a hole in his head....lol

Im having trouble posting pictures of the tank. The fitting is located behind the hot water tank, it is a 90deg into the tank.

I tried this below, but got discouraged about half way through.

Just go to THIS SITE and drag n' drop the file (or browse to it) and then copy and paste the resulting string into your reply text wordage.

Similar to ours.
Ours and most use a swivel connection that threads onto water tank. Ive seen pictures of fittings without swivel that were threaded onto tank and then lines crimped on-
hopefully yours isn't one of those- a bit more involved.
