First, the water tank is filled with cold water. The heating is managed by a certain heating component or the gas burner. A thermostat is used for setting the temperature to your desired level.

When the heating starts, a certain temperature builds in the tank. As soon as you open the faucet for hot water, some initial cold water would pass followed by hot water.
