Hot water expansion tank placement

Does hot water expansion tank connection tee go in front or behind the cut off valve?

Hot water expansion tank placement

Put the expansion tank on the cold water side between cutoff valve and the water heater.
The average homeowner who lost his house in the Oklahoma tornadoes should move for good and not rebuild. Too much complexity watchdogging the contractor. Too much a chance to be defrauded.
