I will not be using the heater inlet or outlets. You indicate that a chrome plug is included for the top, but a hose barb for the side. Is a chrome plug inclded for the side also? If not, how do I block that one off?

You can use a 1/2" NPT plug such as 61766206 for the side. It is not chrome but it is an Endurashine finish. That is the closest thing we offer to a chrome pipe plug.
