Starting up the Powerstream Pro
Checking for leaks and purging air
•
Verify all circuit breakers supplying power to the water heater are turned off.
•
Open all hot water taps supplied by the water heater and inspect all water connections for leaks.
•
With all hot water taps still open, inspect each tap to ensure all air in the lines has been purged out.
•
With the air purged and taps still flowing, turn on all circuit breakers supplying the water heater.
•
Close all hot water taps and proceed to the next section.
Adjusting the temperature dial
•
The temperature adjustment is made using the dial on the bottom edge of the unit. The adjustment
is between approximately 95°F and 135°F. Turning the dial clockwise increases the temperature
setting as indicated by the marking on the unit.
Adjusting the flow
•
Open fully both inlet and outlet shut-off valves at the heater, then :
•
Turn on fully the highest flowing hot water faucet (e.g., bathtub) served by the water heater.
•
Adjust the outlet shut-off valve until the water flow rate from the hot faucet corresponds to the value
given in Graph 1 below.
Graph 1
8
For example:
•
For the RP17PT unit, using the outlet ball valve, ensure the flow rate does not exceed 2.3 gallons /
minute.
•
For the RP27PT unit, using the outlet ball valve, ensure the flow rate does not exceed 3.5 gallons /
minute.
Note: These figures are based on an inlet water temperature of 55°F and a supply voltage of 240
volts. If the inlet water temperature is lower than 55°F, or if the supply voltage is less than 240 volts,
then the outlet temperature will be lower than what is shown in Graph 1. If a higher outlet water
temperature is desired, then reduce the flow rate and/or supply the unit with 240 volts.
IMPORTANT
Before leaving the site, the installer should demonstrate the unit to the user and give them this guide.
How the Powerstream Pro works
•
The Powerstream Pro heats water continuously as it flows through the heater modules.
•
The electronic control PCB monitors the flow rate and the incoming water temperature and then
switches on the required number of heater elements to reach the temperature set by the adjustment
dial.
•
As the flow rate or the incoming water temperature changes, the electronic control adjusts the
number of heater elements used so that the outlet temperature is maintained.
•
The outlet water temperature can change slightly as the flow rate changes due to the steps in power
as different heater elements are switched on and off.
•
The outlet water temperature can also vary if the maximum flow rate is exceeded (see Graph 1) or if
the supply voltage changes.
•
Each heater module is protected by an electro-mechanical therm al cut-out. If the temperature of any
of the heater modules gets too high, then the cut-out will trip and cut the power to that heater
module. If the cut-out trips, it must be reset while the circuit breakers are off. If you are not
comfortable or qualified to perform this task, consult the original installer or a licensed electrician.
This cut-out will only trip in exceptional circumstances.
•
The RP17PT unit is supplied from two independent voltage supplies and the RP27PT unit from three
independent voltage supplies. (In Canada the unit has just one voltage supply).
•
Depending on the region of the country, the temperature of the water supply can vary between 40°F
in winter to 70°F in summer, with an average of 55°F.

Diagram 4: Internal wiring schematic for single phase RP27PT unit. (RP17PT does not have Elt 5 & 6
fitted and uses two supplies). (In Canada an auxiliary terminal block is fitted during installation).
Using the Powerstream Pro
WARNING
Do not use the unit if you think it may be frozen, as this could result in serious damage to the unit. Wait
until you are sure that it has completely thawed out before you switch it on.
•
•
•
•

10
Check that the power is switched on at the circuit breaker panel.
Turn on the hot water faucet FULLY. The hot water temperature can be changed by adjusting the
temperature dial on the bottom surface of the unit. (The dial adjusts the temperature typically
between 95°F and 131°F. The factory sets the temperature dial at the lowest position.)
There are internal safety thermal cut-outs which will trip if the unit overheats. If the cut-out trips, it
must be reset while the circuit breakers are off. If you are not comfortable or qualified to perform this
task, consult the original installer or a licensed electrician.
If the unit has been used recently, run the water through for a few seconds to let the temperature
cool down. You may initially get a short burst of very hot water that was in the plumbing lines from
previous use.
If a second outlet connected to the unit is also turned on, the hot water will be shared between the
two.

Troubleshooting
WARNING
Always switch off the electricity supply to the unit before you remove the cover.
IMPORTANT:
If you are unable to perform the tasks listed below, or need additional assistance please contact your
original installer/licensed electrician.
Cold water only – Neon light off
Flow rate is too
low
Verify the flow rate out of fixture is at or above the minimum activation rate
required for the unit to activate. (Activation rates: AE115 = 0.6 GPM, AE125 = 0.8
GPM).
The water supply
is connected to
the outlet of the
unit
Verify plumbing connections are correct (See Diagram 1, Page 4). Reconnect the
water supply to the inlet of the unit (marked blue).
Plumbing
crossover
To test for a plumbing crossover, turn off power supply to the heater. Close
installer supplied cold water shut off valve (if none installed, install before
proceeding). Open all hot water taps supplied by the heater. Wait 5 minutes and
check all taps. Any water running is a sign of a plumbing crossover. Consult a
local plumber or service person for help in correcting a plumbing crossover. To
return the heater to service, reinstall cover, open the inlet water supply to the
heater and open all hot water taps. Let all taps run until there is no air coming out
of the fixtures. Shut off all hot water taps. Turn power supply on to the heater.
Return heater to service. (This procedure will prevent the heating elements from
burning out).
The flow
transducer is not
spinning
Turn off the power supply to the heater and rem ove the cover. Observe if the flow
transducer "spins" when the water is turned on. Please note the flow transducer
spins at a high speed and can appear to be stopped when actually spinning. It is
recommended to observe the flow transducer without water flowing, then turn on a
hot water tap while observing the flow transducer. If the flow transducer is not
spinning, remove and flush flow transducer, noting the Do's and Dont's on Page 11.
See the technical support section of www.boschpro.com for more detailed
instruction on removing the flow transducer.
One or more of the
heating module
thermal cut-outs
has tripped
Turn off the power to the heater, remove the cover and locate thermal cutouts on
the top of each heating module. Try resetting each cutout by pushing the reset
button located in the center of the cutout. Determine and fix the cause of the
overheating. Obstructions in the water path can restrict the flow of water through
the heater causing it to overheat. Verify the heater’s inlet filter screen and all
outlets served by the heater are clear of debris. Ensure the heater is not being fed
preheated water. This water heater is designed for a cold water supply only. If
thermal cut out does not reset, check for continuity through each cutout (less than
0.5 Ohms). If any cutout reads more than 0.5 Ohms or open, then it may be
defective and should be replaced.
No electricity at
the heater or one
of the supplies has
failed
Have a licensed electrician verify proper wiring and adequate voltage on the
terminal block inside the water heater. See the “Electrical connections” section on
Page 5 of this manual.
12
Water too cold – Neon light on
Temperature dial
is turned too low
Turn the temperature dial located on the bottom of the water heater clockwise for
hotter temperatures. Refer to Graph 1 for outlet temperature vs. flow rate vari ance.
Water flow is too
high
Adjust water flow to stay within the water heater’s specifications. See Graph 1 on
Page 8 of this manual.
One or more of the
heating module
thermal cut-outs
has tripped
Shut off the power to the unit, remove the cover and locate thermal cutouts on the
top of each heating module. Try resetting each cutout by pushing the reset button
located in the center of the cutout. Determine and fix the cause of the overheating.
Obstructions in the water path can restrict the flow of water through the heater
causing it to overheat. Verify the heater’s inlet filter screen and all outlets served
by the heater are clear of debris. Ensure the heater is not being fed preheated
water. This water heater is designed for a cold water feed only. If thermal cut out
does not reset, check for continuity through each cutout (Less than 0.5 Ohms). If
any cutout reads more than 0.5 Ohms or open, then it may be defective and
should be replaced.
The power supply
voltage has
dropped
This is likely an issue with the incoming power supply. Have a qualified electrician
measure voltage on the water heater’s terminal block while operating at maximum
flow and maximum temperature setting. The RP17PT / RP27PT models are rated
for 240V and will also operate at 220V or 208V with reduced output. The output
will vary in accordance with the following ratios:
Volts
Output Ratio
208
0.75
220
0.84
240
1.0
The inlet water
temperature is too
cold
Verify the heater is sized appropriately for it’s geographic location. Turn
temperature knob located on the bottom of the water all the way clockwise for
maximum temperature setting. Ensure flow rates are within the heater’s
specifications. Refer to Graph 1 on Page 8 of the manual. Use of an isolation
valve on the hot water outlet to control flow rate is recommended.
One of the power
supplies is not on
Have a licensed electrician verify adequate voltage on the terminal block inside
the water heater. Verify circuit breakers serving the heater are not tripped. See
the “Electrical connections” section on Page 5 of this manual.
Premature element
failure
Shut off power to the unit and remove cover. Use an ohmmeter to verify correct
resistance on each element. If readings are different than listed specifications on

Water flow too low
There are
restrictions in the
plumbing
Obstructions in the water path can restrict the flow of water through the heater.
Verify the heater’s inlet filter screen, faucet aerators, showerheads and whole
house filters are clear of debris. Verify proper flow on the outlet side of the heater
with the hot water pipe disconnected. Maximum flow rates for each unit are as
follows. RP17PT = 2.3gpm, RP27PT = 3.5gpm.
Water supply
pressure too low
Verify incoming water supply is at least 30psi. For people on well systems, the
recommended pressure range is 30-50psi.
Outlet shut-off
valves are set too
low
Adjust installer supplied outlet valve as described below:
•
Completely open both installer supplied inlet and outlet shut-off valves at the
heater. (if none installed, install before proceeding)
•
Completely open hot water on the highest flowing hot water fixture served by
the heater (i.e. bathtub).
•
Slowly close the outlet shut-off valve, slowing the water flow rate until the
temperature at the hot water faucet corresponds to the values given on
Graph 1 on Page 8 of the manual, or desired water temperature is reached.
14
Water Temperature Too Hot
Temperature dial
set too high
Turn the temperature knob located on the bottom of the water heater
counterclockwise for cooler temperatures.
There are
restrictions in the
plumbing
Obstructions in the water path can restrict the flow of water through the heater
causing overheating. Verify the heater’s inlet filter screen, faucet aerators,
showerheads and whole house filters are clear of debris. Verify proper flow on the
outlet side of the heater with the hot water pipe disconnected. Opening hot water
isolation valve fully may be necessary. Maximum flow rates for each unit are as
follows. RP17PT - 2.3gpm, RP27PT - 3.5gpm.
Inlet water
temperature is too
warm
Verify the heater is being feed with cold water only. This water heater is not
designed for preheated water or recirculation applications. Increase flow rate
where ever possible. Replacing low flow showerheads and aerators with higher
flowing (GPM) ones may be necessary.
Cold mix, heater
deactivates
If inlet water temperature is over 70°F, water may be very hot out of the tap. This
requires a lot of cold water to be added in order to get a usable hot water
temperature. The addition of too much cold water will overpower hot water
demand from the water heater. This slows the flow within the water heater,
decreasing it below the activation point, which shuts off the heater. The end result
is nothing but cold water coming out of the outlet. Increase the fl ow rate by
cleaning or replacing fixtures and lower the setting on the temperature adjustment
knob. See service bulletin TWH-E2-04 at www.boschhotwater.com for further
troubleshooting on this symptom.
Fluctuating water
pressure
If the water pressure in the home is erratic and the water flow is not consistent
while a tap is opened, then the temperature of hot water will fluctuate. The
minimum water pressure for the home should be 30psi or greater. For people on
well systems the minimum pressure range is 30-50psi. The use of a pressure
reducing/regulating valve is an effective way to maintain constant water pressure
to the water heater. Watts brand 25AUB- ¾” or N35B-¾” pressure
reducing/regulating valves or equivalent is suggested.
Changing flow rate
Major changes in flow rate can adversely affect the output water temperature of
the heater. Increases from one major fixture running to multiple fixtures running at
one time can cause the temperature to fluctuate. Stay within the heater’s
specifications. See Graph 1 on page 8.
