I SAFETY
The warranty on this water heater is in effect only when the
water heater is installed and operated in accordance with
these instructions. The manufacturer of this water heater will
not be liable for any injury or property damage resulting
from failure to comply with these instructions.
WARNING! This water heater must be installed strictly in
accordance with the instructions enclosed, and local electrical, fuel and building codes. It is possible that connections to
the water heater, or the water heater itself may develop
leaks. IT IS THEREFORE IMPERATIVE that the water
heater be installed so that any leakage of the tank or related
water piping is directed to an adequate drain in such a way
that it cannot damage the building, furniture, carpeting, adjacent areas, lower floors of the structure or other property
subject to water damage. This is particularly important if the
water heater is installed in a multi-story building, on finished
flooring or carpeted surfaces. SLANT/FIN CORP. CANNOT
BE HELD LIABLE for damage caused by water from the
water heater, pressure relief valve, or related fittings. Closets
without drains and carpeted areas are examples of unsuitable locations for any water heater. Select a location as centralized within the piping system as possible. The heater
should be located in an area not subject to freezing temperatures at any time. It is recommended that a suitable drain
pan be installed under the water heater. This pan shall be a
minimum of 50mm (2 in.) deep and have a diameter that is
a minimum of 50mm (2 in.) greater than the diameter of the
water heater. Suitable piping shall connect the drain pan to
a properly operating floor drain.
Relief Valve Requirements
Caution: To reduce the risk of excessive pressures and
temperatures in this water heater, install temperature
and pressure protective equipment required by local
codes. It should be no less than a combination temperature
and pressure relief valve certified by a nationally
recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic
inspection of production of listed equipment or materials,
as meeting the latest edition of ANSI Z21.22:
Requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas
Shut-off Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems. This
valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure not
to exceed the marked MAXIMUM working pressure of the
water heater (150 PSI). Install the valve into an opening
provided and marked for this purpose in the water
heater, and orient it or provide tubing so that any
discharge from the valve will exit only within 6 inches
above, or any distance below the structural floor and
cannot contact any live electrical part. The discharge
opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under
any circumstances. The end of the relief pipe opening
should terminate near a floor drain or other suitable
location not subject to blocking or freezing. DO NOT
thread, plug or cap the relief pipe opening.

PRODUCT SELECTION / PERFORMANCE
1. The following guidelines apply to residential systems only. For commercial or institutional installations contact the
factory directly for assistance.
2. Determine the quantity of domestic hot water required. Factors to consider:
a. Estimate typical peak hour demand. Determine the general time of day (morning, noon, evening) when
the most hot water is used. Use chart below to determine potential maximum usage.

b. Estimate unusual peak draw demand. Whirlpool baths, hot tubs, and mutltiple head showers require large
quantities of hot water in a short period of time. Contact fixture manufacturer for quantity of water required.
Generally speaking, these circumstances can only be met with larger storage volumes.
c. Domestic Water Temperature. Most residential usage will be satisfied with 119˚F water, the temperature
setting recommended by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Some applications such as laundry and
dishwashers may require a higher temperature.
Ratings can be improved by increasing thermostat setting and using a mixing valve to temper the hot water to
the proper temperature. When temperatures greater than 119˚F are required, use a mixing valve at the outlet of
the water heater or anti-scald fittings at point of use.

INSTALLATION/PIPING
The Location of the heater.
Locate the heater so that there is easy access to the control,
piping, valves, drain and heater for future servicing and maintenance. The heater is to be kept in an area where it is not
exposed to freezing temperatures.
Read the Installation and Operating Instructions manual
thoroughly. Follow recommended piping and wiring diagrams.
Upon completing installation, fill the tank with water. While
filling it leave a hot water faucet open until a steady stream of
water is flowing.Then, shut the faucet and check for any leaks
thoughout the entire system.
Also, the heater must be located in an area where a leak
(eg. from the piping or fittings, from any temperature and
relief valve discharge, or from the tank itself), will not cause
personal harm or damage the surrounding area. The tank
should be installed in an area with a floor drain or in a pan
suitable for water heaters.

WIRING
General wiring requirements
Wiring must conform to National Electrical Code in U.S.A.,
C.S.A. C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code Part 1 in Canada,
and any other national, provincial, state, or local code
requirements having jurisdiction.
All line voltage wiring must be a minimum 18 gage.
A separate service switch for the water heater electrical circuit is recommended. This switch must not turn off the boiler or other components in the heating system.
IMPORTANT NOTE:
All wire connections to “T-T” or “A-A” terminals on boiler control must be from an isolated circuit which does
not carry voltage from an external source. Any compoH
nent which does not have isolated end switches must
not be used unless a relay is added with
A the dry contacts wired to these terminals.
The Slant/Fin Indirect Tank heater operates in much the same
way as an additional heating zone, either utilizing the same
circulator as household heating or its own circulator. The
heater temperature is maintained by the use of an immersion
A the immersion
type aquastat. The aquastat is installed into
F
well on the heater and secured by tightening the set screw or
clamp.
The aquastat operates in much the same way as a
thermostat. When the temperature falls inside the tank the set
of contacts make (close) and when the temperature rises the
contacts break (open).
The aquastat should be tied into the boiler system and
controls. When the tank calls for heat the aquastat contacts
close and signal the boiler controls, allowing the boiler to
maintain temperature and proper operation of the tank
circulator.

MAINTENANCE
To ensure efficient and safe operation, Slant/Fin recommends
the servicing of the heater by a competent service technician.
Lime or Sediment Buildup (Every 6 months)
To reduce the buildup of lime or sediment it is recommended
that the tank be flushed every six months.
1. Drain the tank through the drain valve at the bottom of
the tank until the water is clear.
2. Inspect the tank for any deposits of lime or sediment.
3. Remove lime, scale or deposits using care not to
damage the tank lining.
Temperature & Pressure Relief Valve (Every 12 months)
1. Before manually testing theT & P valve, make sure the

1. Shut off all power to the heater.
2. Close the domestic cold water supply valve.
3. Open the household hot water taps.
4. Attach a hose to the drain valve located at the bottom of
the heater and allow the heater to drain.

EXAMINE THE ANODES AND REPLACE IF THE DIAMETER IS LESS THAN .40 inches.
6. Replacement of the Anodes -- The use or P.T.F.E. tape is
recommended to ensure watertight connection of the
anodes.
Failure to inspect the anodes may result in premature
failure of the heater.

Your Slant/Fin indirect-fired water heater is protected by these warranties.
These warranties are applicable to original residential or commercial purchasers only.
THE FOLLOWING WARRANTIES ARE EXCLUSIVE AND ARE GIVEN AND ACCEPTED IN LIEU OF ANY AND ALL OTHER WARRANTIES,
EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY OBLIGATION, LIABILITY, RIGHT, CLAIM OR REMEDY IN CONTRACT OR TORT, WHETHER OR NOT
ARISING FROM SLANT/FIN CORP.’S NEGLIGENCE, ACTUAL OR IMPUTED.
THE REMEDIES OF THE ORIGINAL PURCHASER SHALL BE LIMITED TO THOSE PROVIDED HEREIN TO THE EXCLUSION OF ANY
OTHER REMEDIES INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, SPECIAL, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL AND/OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO PROPERTY DAMAGE, LOST PROFIT, OR DAMAGES ALLEGED TO HAVE BEEN CAUSED BY ANY FAILURE OF
SLANT/FIN CORP. SLANT/FIN CORP. TO MEET ANY OBLIGATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT INCLUDING THE OBLIGATION TO REPAIR
AND REPLACE SET FORTH BELOW.
NO AGREEMENT VARYING OR EXTENDING THE FOREGOING WARRANTIES, REMEDIES, OR THIS LIMITATION WILL BE BINDING UPON
SLANT/FIN CORP. UNLESS IN WRITING AND SIGNED BY A DULY AUTHORIZED OFFICER OF SLANT/FIN CORP. SLANT/FIN CORP. DOES
NOT ASSUME OR AUTHORIZE ANY OTHER PERSON TO ASSUME FOR IT ANY OTHER LIABILITY IN CONNECITON WITH THE SALE OF
ITS PRODUCTS.
THIS WARRANTY EXTENDS ONLY TO THE FIRST (ORIGINAL) RETAIL PURCHASER OF THE TANK AND ONLY WHILE THE TANK IS
OWNED BY THAT PURCHASER AND REMAINS AT ITS ORIGINAL LOCATION. CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP OR RELOCATION OF THE TANK
SHALL FORTHWITH TERMINATE THIS WARRANTY WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE.
WARRANTY COVERAGE FOR RESIDENTIAL USAGE - 7 YEARS
The Warranties listed in this section shall apply to Slant/Fin Corp. indirect-fired water heaters used in a residential setting by original purchasers
only. A “residential setting” as used herein shall mean usage either (a) in a single family dwelling in which the original consumer purchaser of the
indirect-fired water heater resides on a permanent basis or (b) in a multiple family dwelling provided that such indirect-fired water heater services
only one family unit in a multiple family dwelling; provided that the term “residential setting” shall not include any usage of the indirect-fired water
heater above 150 degrees Fahrenheit.
During the specified warranty period of the indirect-fired water heater, Slant/Fin Corp. will repair or replace, at its option, without charge, any indirect-fired water heater having a defect or malfunction that results in a water leak from the outside jacket, inner tank, or heat exchanger as a result
of normal use and service. It is expressly agreed between Slant/Fin Corp. and the original residential purchaser that repair or replacement is the
exclusive and sole remedy of the original purchaser.
Any claim under this warranty must be verified by an authorized Slant/Fin Corp. representative: if the claim is found to be valid, SLANT/FIN CORP.
will repair or replace the tank as set forth herein, within a reasonable time after verification. If Slant/Fin Corp. chooses in its discretion to repair any
indirect-fired water heater for which there is a valid warranty claim, Slant/Fin Corp. shall provide parts that are compatible with the subject indirectfired water heater, which parts need not be identical to the original. If Slant/Fin Corp. chooses, in its discretion, to replace any indirect-fired water
heater for which there is a valid warranty claim, Slant/Fin Corp. shall replace the subject indirect-fired water heater with the same model or, if such
model is not available, with a model which is, in Slant/Fin Corp.’s reasonable judgment, the nearest compatible model available at the time of
replacement.
If Slant/Fin Corp. is unable to repair or replace or otherwise comply with its liability under these warranties, after a reasonable number of attempts,
then the original consumer purchaser’s sole and exclusive remedy for such breach shall be either a replacement product or a full refund of the purchase price (exclusive of freight, labor and installation), as determined by Slant/Fin Corp..
If the original purchaser cannot provide proof of purchase then SLANT/FIN CORP. may request proof of residency dating back to the date of manufacture of the tank. In such case the warranty period will begin from the date of manufacture as determined by the tank serial number.
WARRANTY COVERAGE FOR COMMERCIAL USAGE - (THREE YEARS)
The warranties listed in this section shall apply to Slant/Fin Corp. indirect-fired water heaters used in a commercial setting by original consumer
purchasers only. A “commercial setting” as used herein shall mean any usage not falling within the above definition of a “residential setting”.
An indirect-fired water heater shall be deemed to be used in a “commercial setting” if at any time it is operated at a temperature above 150
degrees Fahrenheit.
If at the time of a request for service the original business purchaser cannot provide a copy of the original sales receipt, installation bill, or equivalent document, then the warranty period for the indirect-fired water heater shall be five (3) years from the date of manufacture of the indirect-fired
water heater as determined by the tank serial number.
REPLACEMENT TANK - WARRANTY RESIDENTIAL OR COMMERCIAL APPLICATION
For either a residential or commercial application, the following applies to both when a replacement tank is provided for a tank found to
be under warranty. The replacement tank warranty assumes the remaining warranty period left from the original tank purchased.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED BY EITHER OF THESE WARRANTIES
These warranties are void and shall not apply under the following circumstances:
1. The water heater was not installed or repaired by a heating contractor whose principal occupation is the sale, installation and
repair of plumbing, heating and/or air conditioning equipment.
2. These warranties cannot be considered as a guarantee of workmanship of an installer connected with the installation of the water
heater, or as imposing on Slant/Fin Corp. liability of any nature for unsatisfactory performance as result of faulty workmanship in
the installation or repair which liability is expressly disclaimed.
3. The failure or malfunction results from improper or negligent operation, abuse, misuse or maintenance or unauthorized alteration.
4. Malfunctions resulting from, or repairs necessitated by, uses of the indirect-fired water heater for purposes other than that for
which it was designed, or resulting from flood, fire, wind, lightning, freezing or any other natural disaster or act of God, an act of
destruction, theft or accident.
5. The original serial number on the indirect-fired water heater or component thereof cannot be readily determined.
6. Any indirect-fired water heater is installed in a setting containing any type of water softener system that is not installed and
maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s specifications.
7. The indirect-fired water heater is used for non-potable applications such as pool or process heating.
8. The failure or malfunction results from failure to keep the tank full of potable water, free to circulate at all times and with the tank
free of damaging water sediment or scale deposits.
9. Components of an indirect-fired water heater which are not defective, but must be replaced during the warranty period as a result
of reasonable wear and tear.
10. Indirect-fired water heaters which are repaired or altered without prior written approval of Slant/Fin Corp. so as to affect adversely
their reliability.
11. Slant/Fin Corp. indirect-fired water heaters installed outside of the United States and Canada.
12. Service calls not involving any malfunction or defects and maintenance in the ordinary course.
13. Components of an indirect-fired water heater which are not manufactured expressly for Slant/Fin Corp.; such components are
subject only to those warranties, if any, given by their manufacturers. Slant/Fin Corp. does not adopt and has no responsibility for
those warranties.
14. Any tank that does not have installed a new temperature and pressure relief valve bearing the American Society of Mechanical
Engineers (A.S.M.E.) listing at the time of installation.
FURTHER LIMITATIONS OF WARRANTIES AND REMEDIES
These warranties give you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state. Some states do
not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.
These are the only written warranties applicable to Slant/Fin Corp. indirect-fired water heaters manufactured for and sold by Slant/Fin
Corp.. Slant/Fin Corp. neither assumes nor authorizes anyone to assume for it any other obligation or liability in connection with said
indirect-fired water heaters. This warranty does not cover expenses or labor for disassembly, removal, shipment reassembly
or reinstallation; the original purchaser will be responsible for such costs. Slant/Fin Corp.’s performance under these warranties may be contingent on shipment of components or equipment from suppliers. Slant/Fin Corp. shall not be liable for any failure
or delay in delivery due to any cause beyond its control including without limitation, strike, labor stoppage, a natural disaster (such as
earthquake, flood, fire or storm), political insurrection or the unavailability of components, equipment or supplies.
