If your water heater requires a reset, be sure to TURN OFF THE BREAKERS prior to resetting
the unit.
Resetting your unit without turning off the breakers can result in personal injury and damage
to your water heater.
WARNING! There is water contained in the coils of your water heater at all times. If your water
heater is exposed to freezing temperatures, the water in the coils could freeze, causing a
break in the heat exchanger of the unit, or the supply and return lines. This kind of damage will
result in water running freely into the space where the water heater is located, which can
cause flooding. DO NOT install this water heater where it may be subjected to a freeze. If your
water heater is in an area where freezing is a possibility, you must turn off the water to the
heater and drain it of any water by disconnecting the water lines. Leave the water lines
disconnected until you intend to use the water heater.

The heater must be connected to its own independent electrical circuit. Install a
fuse box or switch (“breaker") for exclusive use of the heater.

The wire gauge necessary will vary based on amperage and distance to the breaker,
but 8 gauge wire is generally sufficient for most installations. If the distance is very
short, sometimes smaller gauge wire may be used. If you aren't sure which gauge of
wire should be used, contact an electrician. The supply wire, main switch and
circuit protection (Leakage Circuit Breaker) must be sufficient for the
amperage required. Please check the table above and the flow rate/temperature
rise chart for the appropriate amperage for your situation. Note that the lower the
amperage, the lower the water temperature rise will be.

DO NOT TURN ON THE BREAKER SWITCH UNTIL ALL ELECTRICAL AND
PLUMBING CONNECTIONS ARE MADE AND WATER IS FLOWING THROUGH
THE UNIT.
For PP110:
POWER PAK - PLUS
Amperage Control Knob
Connect (1) white wire to the single pole 10, 20, 30 or 40 Amp circuit breaker.
Swing Check Valve
Connect (1) white wire to the neutral bar on your breaker box. It does not matter
which white wire connects to neutral and which connects to the breaker. Connect
the green ground wire to the ground bar on your breaker box.
PP110: Connect (1) white wire to
breaker and (1) white wire to neutral.
For PP220 (PPXE5):
PP220: Connect both white wires to
breaker.
Main Water Supply Valve
Green Ground Wire.
Connect to ground bar on breaker box.
Connect the (2) white wires to the double pole 10, 20, 30 or 40 Amp circuit breaker.
Connect the green ground wire to the ground bar on your breaker box.
This appliance MUST be grounded. Connect the ground wire, as indicated in the
Electrical Code.
Remember that you should remove the red and blue covers before installing your
unit.
When all connections are satisfactorily prepared, install the heater cover. With the
insulated container off and water flow modifier (optional) fully open, the faucet must
be opened fully to get maximum water flow . It is necessary to ensure that the water
tank is full before turning the power on. This is an essential step to protect the
heating element.
Note that the above instructions are simply guidelines that apply to most
installations.
The size of the switch and wire gauge must meet all local, state, provincial and
national electrical codes in your area. Contact an electrician if you're not sure.
To determine the minimum electrical circuit please see the next table:
ONE POINT OF USE

TWO OR MORE POINTS OF USE

DO NOT operate the appliance if water ceases to flow during use, if the outer case or
cover is loose or if the unit is not working properly.
If the unit leaks or does not heat properly, disconnect the unit.
ISOLATE the electrical and water supplies before removing the cover and before
proceeding with installation or servicing.
NEVER OPERATE THIS HEATER WITHOUT THE COVER!
WATER AND PLUMBING REQUIREMENTS
DO NOT USE PVC, CPVC or plastic supply lines directly to the unit. A16” copper or
stainless steel pipe must be connected to the heater and then adapted to a different
material such as (CPVC, PVC or PEX PLASTIC).
Be sure to clean the pipes before connecting the heater to the main line. Clean all
the impurities of the pipe, allowing water to flow for a few minutes, check for leaks.
Any residue or dirt in the pipes may cause internal damage to the unit.
Connect the isolation valve at the entry inlet pipe of the heater and make sure you
install a rubber washer. Do not apply excessive force to tighten connectors. A safety
release valve must be fitted in the supply pipe.
Working with electricity requires proper skills and knowledge – Installation of the unit
should be performed by someone who is familiar or trained in this trade. We HIGHLY
recommend that you hire the services of a licensed and qualified
“Electrician/Plumber” familiar with tankless water heaters installation.
We recommend installing a sediment filter before the entry of water to the heater.
Hard water or water with high levels of minerals and alkali can cause damage to this
unit. When this is the case, we recommend the use of a (non-salt) water softening
system.
IMPROPER INSTALLATION CAN CAUSE INJURY OR EVEN DEATH.
IMPORTANT: All electrical work and unit fixing to the wall should be completed
before connecting electrical wiring.
When you turn on the unit, extremely hot water could come out. Take proper safety
precautions to avoid being hurt or burned by water.
DO NOT expose the unit to freezing temperatures. Do not use an input water
temperature over 90 degrees F or 32.2 degrees Celsius. This unit is designed for
indoor use only.
DO NOT restrict the flow of water entering the unit.
08
The provision of a service stop valve in the cold supply pipe will assist in the event of
any subsequent servicing or maintenance.
These heaters are of the closed type (closed system with no ventilation pressure)
suitable for fitting to the normal input of cold water with a maximum of 94 PSI (6.5
bar). They must be fitted with a pressure valve adjacent to the entrance.
PREPARATION
1. Isolate electrical and water supplies BEFORE proceeding with the installation.

horizontally. Please use the installation sticker guide and screws supplied in the
product's original package. Drill the wall for the indicated holes. Check that there are
no hidden wires or pipes, before drilling holes for wall mounting.

We recommend that you install the unit under the sink in the main bathrooms or
utility areas. This will allow for lower amperage usage and a reduced heat loss from
long pipe runs.

For additional savings, reduce the water flow valve at the inlet of the heater so the
temperature increases.
Big Drop:
Higher water outflow.
Less hot water.
NOTE: If water pressure is low, the inlet pipe of the water should be ¾ "with outputs
of 5/8".
The heater should be installed as close as possible to the point of use to avoid heat
loss. If longer distances are required, hot water pipes should be insulated.
Adjust heater temperature settings (located on the front panel of the heater) to the
desired output temperature. Lowering the power setting will save energy, but hot
water temperature will decrease.

Small Drop:

Too little water flow
The water temperature is altered by increasing or decreasing the flow rate of the
water through the water heater, via the temperature control knob. Increased
amperage settings will result in increased water temperature.
Too much water flow
Your Marey Power Pak Plus should give you trouble free operation, however should
a problem or fault occur, the table below will assist in identifying the most common
faults. Diagnosis and fault finding should be carried out by a qualified individual,
skilled in electrical/plumbing.

The pressure relief device is designed into the water heater. The device will work
automatically, when excessive build up of pressure occurs. Do not replace the
pressure relief device with any other screw.
The unit is built of fireproof material.
There is a safety thermal cut-out device in the water heater. This thermostat will cut
off electricity to prevent scalding, when there is a sudden rise in water temperature,
this protecting the user.
All models can be fitted with Leakage Circuit Breaker. (optional)
It is important to keep the showerhead clean in order to maintain the performance of
the water heater.
