PRINCIPLE OF OPERATION (Fig. 2)
GENERAL INSTALLATION INFORMATION
REU-CUG1 (Smartstart®)
CIRCUIT DIAGRAM
The "Smartstart®" system heats the water in the pipework water
connected between the water heater and the hot water outlets before
any outlets are opened using the 'flow and return' pipework principle.
This results in water savings and reduced waiting time for heated water
delivery from the outlet when opened.
You must install this appliance in accordance with these Instructions and all
regulatory requirements which exist in your area. Applicable publications
may include:
Default position of all dipswitches is 'OFF' (to the left)

AS/NZS 3500 - National Plumbing and Drainage
AS/NZS 3000 - Wiring Rules
Building Codes of Australia
Traditional 'flow and return' systems usually keep the water in the
pipework heated continuously. The Smartstart® system however, only
heats the water before the outlet is opened. This results in significant
energy savings because water is not heated unncessesarily whilst
retaining the benefits of traditional flow and return systems.
THE SMARTSTART® SYSTEM MUST BE MOUNTED ON A VERTICAL
WALL OR STRUCTURE.
A schematic of the Smartstart® system installed in conjunction with a
Rinnai continuous flow water heater and temperature controller is shown
in Fig.2 below.

Hot Water
Outlet
1. Before hot water is required, the user activates the Smartstart® system
by pressing the 'preheat' button on the temperature controller.
2. This activates the Smartstart® system and the integral pump is switched
on.
3. Water flows from the pump and passes through the water heater. This in
turn activates the water heater burner and water in the flow and return
heating loop begins to heat.
4. When the Smartstart® control module senses that the water in the full
length of the flow and return heating loop has been heated, the pump
and water heater stop operating.
The Rinnai Smartstart® kit comprises an enclosure containing circulating
pump, water connections for cold water inlet, cold water outlet and heating
loop return, control wiring and printed circuit board. It is fitted with an electric
power cord with three pin plug suitable for connection to a 240 V 10 Amp
GPO. It is also fitted with a control lead for connection to the Rinnai
continuous flow water heater.
5. The user opens the desired hot water outlet. Preheated water will be
delivered from the flow and return heating loop to the outlet.
LOCATION (Fig. 3)
The Rinnai Smartstart® kit does not include:
• 10 AMP GPO
• Heating loop flow and return pipework
• Gas and water isolating valves
• Control valves (non return valve, pressure limiting valve, expansion relief
valve)
• Plumbing Connections between the Smartstart® enclosure and Rinnai
continuous flow water heater and Rinnai water controllers.

Location and clearance requirements for the Rinnai continuous flow
water heater are detailed in the Installation Instructions supplied with it.
The Smartstart® module weights 7.5 kg and the wall or structure on
which it is to be mounted must be capable of supporting the combined
weight of the Smartstart® unit, water heater and any associated
pipework.
Both the water heater and Smartstart® module must be in an accessible
location. Sufficient clearance shall allow access to, and removal of, all
serviceable components. Water heater and Smartstart® modules should
not be mounted higher than 3.5 meters from the ground or floor level
unless the customer can arrange permanent and safe access or can
arrange another means of access, for example, by means of scissor or
boom lifts.

Pump Bleed Valve
The Smartstart® module is usually located below the Rinnai water
heater. However, it can be mounted anywhere within the return loop.
As the communication cable is only 1.0 metre in length you will have to
extend the original cable if installed further away than 1.0 metre from the
Rinnai continuous flow water heater.

items 12 & 13 of Fig. 3 (actual position of 'bleed valves' is shown on
dimensional drawing) until all are pockets are released and a steady
stream of water is discharged.
The maximum water temperature delivered at the hot water outlets is
determined by the pre-set limit programmed into the water heater. Local
regulations and/or the requirements of AS/NZS 3500 must be considered
regarding the temperature limitations of hot water supplied to areas used
primarily for personal hygiene. The temperature of water to these areas
may be limited to 50°C or less. If you are unsure about local regulations,
contact your regulating authority or Rinnai.
7. Activate the power supply to both the water heater and Smartstart®
units.
8. Press the ‘on / off’ button on the temperature control panel. The ‘on’
indicator next to the transfer button will glow when the control panel
has been switched ‘on’.
If the water heater is marked to state that it delivers water not exceeding

The "Smartstart®" system heats the water in the pipework water
connected between the water heater and the hot water outlets before
any outlets are opened using the 'flow and return' pipework principle.
This results in water savings and reduced waiting time for heated water
delivery from the outlet when opened.
You must install this appliance in accordance with these Instructions and all
regulatory requirements which exist in your area. Applicable publications
may include:
Default position of all dipswitches is 'OFF' (to the left)

Traditional 'flow and return' systems usually keep the water in the
pipework heated continuously. The Smartstart® system however, only
heats the water before the outlet is opened. This results in significant
energy savings because water is not heated unncessesarily whilst
retaining the benefits of traditional flow and return systems.
THE SMARTSTART® SYSTEM MUST BE MOUNTED ON A VERTICAL
WALL OR STRUCTURE.
A schematic of the Smartstart® system installed in conjunction with a
Rinnai continuous flow water heater and temperature controller is shown
in Fig.2 below.

Hot Water
Outlet
1. Before hot water is required, the user activates the Smartstart® system
by pressing the 'preheat' button on the temperature controller.
2. This activates the Smartstart® system and the integral pump is switched
on.
3. Water flows from the pump and passes through the water heater. This in
turn activates the water heater burner and water in the flow and return
heating loop begins to heat.
4. When the Smartstart® control module senses that the water in the full
length of the flow and return heating loop has been heated, the pump
and water heater stop operating.
The Rinnai Smartstart® kit comprises an enclosure containing circulating
pump, water connections for cold water inlet, cold water outlet and heating
loop return, control wiring and printed circuit board. It is fitted with an electric
power cord with three pin plug suitable for connection to a 240 V 10 Amp
GPO. It is also fitted with a control lead for connection to the Rinnai
continuous flow water heater.

5. The user opens the desired hot water outlet. Preheated water will be
delivered from the flow and return heating loop to the outlet.
LOCATION (Fig. 3)
The Rinnai Smartstart® kit does not include:
• 10 AMP GPO
• Heating loop flow and return pipework
• Gas and water isolating valves
• Control valves (non return valve, pressure limiting valve, expansion relief
valve)
• Plumbing Connections between the Smartstart® enclosure and Rinnai
continuous flow water heater and Rinnai water controllers.

Location and clearance requirements for the Rinnai continuous flow
water heater are detailed in the Installation Instructions supplied with it.
The Smartstart® module weights 7.5 kg and the wall or structure on
which it is to be mounted must be capable of supporting the combined
weight of the Smartstart® unit, water heater and any associated
pipework.
Both the water heater and Smartstart® module must be in an accessible
location. Sufficient clearance shall allow access to, and removal of, all
serviceable components. Water heater and Smartstart® modules should
not be mounted higher than 3.5 meters from the ground or floor level
unless the customer can arrange permanent and safe access or can
arrange another means of access, for example, by means of scissor or
boom lifts.

The Smartstart® module is usually located below the Rinnai water
heater. However, it can be mounted anywhere within the return loop.
As the communication cable is only 1.0 metre in length you will have to
extend the original cable if installed further away than 1.0 metre from the
Rinnai continuous flow water heater.
