This is not a new install, so reversed plumbing at the water heater or anywhere else isn’t the problem. This was one time occurance which only lasted a few hours. Besides, reversed pipes at the WH wouldn’t cause these symptoms. I would just run out of hot water VERY quickly as the cold water filled the tank from the top and colder water was taken from the bottom. I would still get cold from the cold water faucets. (Been there…WH was plumbed backwardswhen I moved in 20 years ago. The previous family of 4 lived that way for at least 5 years according to the install docs that came with the WH!)
