Locating the Water Heater
Carefully choose a location for the new water heater. The
placement is a very important consideration for the safety of the
occupants in the building and for the most economical use of
the water heater.
Fire or Explosion Hazard
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
CAUTION
Avoid all ignition sources if you smell gas.
Do not expose water heater controls to excessive gas
pressure.
Property Damage Hazard
Use only the gas shown on the water heater rating label.
Maintain required clearances to combustibles.
• All water heaters eventually leak.
Keep ignition sources away from faucets after extended
periods of non-use.
• Do not install without adequate drainage.
Read instruction manual before
installing, using or servicing
water heater.
Whether replacing an existing water heater or installing the water
heater in a new location observe the following critical points:
1. The water heater must be located indoors.
2. The water heater must not be located in an area where it will
be subject to freezing temperatures.
There is a risk in using fuel burning appliances such as gas water
heaters in rooms, garages or other areas where gasoline, other
flammable liquids or engine driven equipment or vehicles are
stored, operated or repaired. Flammable vapors are heavy and
travel along the floor and may be ignited by the water heater’s
igniter or Main Burner flames causing fire or explosion.
3. Locate the water heater so it is protected and not subject to
physical damage by a moving vehicle.
4. Locate the water heater on a level surface.
5. Locate the water heater near a floor drain. The water heater
should be located in an area where leakage of the tank or
connections will not result in damage to the area adjacent
to the water heater or to lower floors of the structure. When
such locations cannot be avoided, it is recommended that a
metal drain pan, adequately drained, be installed under the
water heater.
Flammable items, pressurized containers or any other potential fire
hazardous articles must never be placed on or adjacent to the water
heater.
Clearance To Combustible Materials
6. Locate the water heater close to the point of major hot water
usage.
The water heaters covered in this manual are approved for
installation on combustible flooring. The clearance to combustible
and non combustible construction materials is 0 inches on the
back and sides of the water heater. These water heaters are also
approved for installation in an alcove.
7. Locate the water heater close to a 120 VAC power supply.
See Power Supply on page 13 for requirements.
Note: Adequate clearance for servicing should be maintained
on all installations. See Service Clearance below.
8. Locate the water heater where an adequate supply of fresh
air for combustion and ventilation can be obtained. See Air
Requirements on page 17.
ALCOVE
9. Locate the water heater where the vent and intake air piping,
when installed, will remain within the maximum equivalent
lengths allowed. See Venting Requirements on page 22.

Service Clearance
A service clearance of 24 inches (61 cm) should be maintained
from serviceable parts such as the T&P valve, control system
components, gas valve, clean out opening, drain valve, the vent
connection (exhaust elbow) and the condensate drain. Leave as
much room as possible above the water heater and near the
exhaust elbow for this reason. See Figure 9 on page 16.
Intake Air and Vent Pipe Clearances
The minimum clearance from combustible materials for the vent
(exhaust) and intake air piping shall be 0 inches. Vent or intake
air piping passing through a combustible wall or ceiling must be
a continuous run (no joints).
11
Extended Vent Terminations
All-bronze circulating pumps are recommended for used with
commercial water heaters.
The water heaters covered by this manual can be installed using
4 inch pipe for the intake air and/or vent piping up to a maximum
of 70 equivalent feet (21.3 m). The intake air and/or vent piping
can be extended up to 120 equivalent feet (36.5 m) by installing
6 inch pipe. See the Venting Requirements on page 22.
Some circulating pumps are manufactured with sealed bearings
and do not require further lubrication. Some circulating pumps
must be periodically oiled. Refer to the pump manufacturer’s
instructions for lubrication requirements.
Insulation Blankets
The water heater ships from the factory with two (2) 4 inch
terminations that are 45° PVC elbows with a debris screen
installed. When 6 inch intake air or vent pipe is installed, factory
supplied 6 inch terminations must be used.
Contact your local distributor or call the parts department phone
number listed on the back cover of this manual to order 6 inch
termination(s).
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
Optional Concentric Terminations
Do not obstruct water heater air intake
with insulating blanket.
The water heaters covered by this manual can be installed in a
Direct Vent configuration using optional concentric terminations.
Gas and carbon monoxide detectors
are available.
Install water heater in accordance with
the instruction manual.
SUF 130 300 models installed using 4 inch vent/intake air piping
use the 4 inch concentric termination. SUF 130 300 models
installed using 6 inch vent/intake air piping use the 6 inch
concentric termination. SUF 130 400 and 500 models must use
the 6 inch concentric termination on all installations. See the
Venting Requirements on page 22 and Concentric Termination
Installation on page 27.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
Insulation blankets are available to the general public for external
use on gas water heaters but are not necessary with these
products. The purpose of an insulation blanket is to reduce the
standby heat loss encountered with storage tank heaters. The
water heaters covered by this manual meet or exceed the Energy
Policy Act standards with respect to insulation and standby heat
loss requirements, making an insulation blanket unnecessary.
Concentric terminations must be ordered separately. Contact
your local distributor or call the parts department phone number
listed on the back cover of this manual to order.
• 4” Concentric Termination Part # 9006328005
• 6” Concentric Termination Part # 9006144005
Should you choose to apply an insulation blanket to this
heater, you should follow these instructions. See the Features
and Components section of this manual for identification of
components mentioned below. Failure to follow these instructions
can restrict the air flow required for proper combustion, potentially
resulting in fire, asphyxiation, serious personal injury or death.
Hard Water
Where hard water conditions exist, water softening or the
threshold type of water treatment is recommended. This will
protect the dishwashers, coffee urns, water heaters, water piping
and other equipment.
• Do not apply insulation to the top of the water heater, as
this will interfere with safe operation of the blower assembly.
• Do not cover the control system LCD on top of the water
heater.
• Do not cover the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve.
• Do not cover the instruction manual. Keep it on the side of
the water heater or nearby for future reference.
• Do obtain new warning and instruction labels from the
manufacturer for placement on the blanket directly over the
existing labels.
• Do inspect the insulation blanket frequently to make certain
it does not sag, thereby obstructing combustion air flow.
See Maintenance on page 62 for sediment and lime scale
removal procedures.
Circulation Pumps
A circulating pump is used when a system requires a circulating
loop or there is a storage tank used in conjunction with the water
heater. See the Water Piping Diagrams beginning on page 67 for
installation location of circulating pumps.
See Circulation Pump Wiring Diagrams on page 66 for electrical
hookup information. Install in accordance with the current edition
of the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70 or the Canadian
Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.

* Manifold gas pressure; reading can only be taken while gas is flowing. Reading taken should be ± 0.3” W. C. of the listed value. These water heaters are certified for
use without modification for altitudes up to 10,000 feet. For elevations above 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) see High Altitude Installations on page 52.
† Minimum supply gas pressure; readings are taken while gas is not flowing (static pressure) AND while gas is flowing (dynamic pressure). Supply pressure must never
fall below the minimum values. Supply gas pressures should be measured with all gas fired appliances connected to a common main firing at full capacity. If supply
pressure drops more than 1.5” W. C. as gas begins to flow the supply gas system (gas line/regulator) may be restricted or undersized. See Table 5 and the Supply
Gas Regulator requirements below. See Supply Gas Line Installation on page 37 and Supply Gas Regulator on page 13 for sizing and installation instructions also.
‡ Maximum supply gas pressure; reading are taken while gas is not flowing (static pressure) AND while gas is flowing (dynamic pressure). Supply pressure must never
exceed this maximum value.
Supply Gas Line
generally provide good water heater operation. Some addition
adjustment maybe required later to maintain a steady gas
supply pressure.
The high efficiency water heaters covered in this manual require an
adequate volume of fuel gas for proper operation. A lack of fuel gas
volume can lead to ignition failure, rough starting and rough operation.
Increasing the supply gas pressure does not necessarily increase
the volume of gas supplied to the water heater and must remain
below the maximum supply gas pressures shown in Table 4.
4. When installing multiple water heaters in the same gas supply
system it is recommended that individual positive lock-up gas
pressure regulators be installed at each unit.
Power Supply
The minimum supply gas line sizes shown in Table 5 must be
observed on all installations to help insure an adequate volume
of fuel gas is provided. Do not use flexible gas piping.
Supply gas lines serving more than one appliance may require
larger sizes than what is shown in Table 5. See Gas Line Sizing
on page 37.
The water heaters covered in this manual require a 120 VAC,
1Ø (single phase), 60Hz, 15 amp power supply and must also
be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes or, in the
absence of local codes, with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/
NFPA 70 or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.1.
MINIMUM SUPPLY GAS LINE SIZE
Power Fluctuations and Electrical Noise
Table 5
The water heater’s control system requires a source of stable
clean electricity for proper operation. Connecting the water heater
to a branch circuit that is subject to fluctuations in voltage level or
electrical line noise such as EMI (electro magnetic interference)
or RFI (radio frequency interference) may cause erratic control
system operation and malfunction.

of appliances connected, the supply gas line size may have to be increased
beyond the minimum required sizes shown in this table - see Gas Line Sizing
on page 37.
Note: Malfunctions caused by the power supply and the costs
to install power supply filters are not covered under the limited
warranty.
Supply Gas Regulator
The maximum allowable gas supply pressure for this water
heater is 10.0” W. C. (2.49 kPa) for natural gas and 12.0” W.
C. (2.99 kPa) for propane gas. Install a positive lock-up gas
pressure regulator in the gas supply line if inlet gas pressure can
exceed these pressures at any time.
Dedicated Power Wiring and Breakers
Dedicated power supply wires, ground wiring and dedicated
circuit breakers often prevent electrical line noise and should be
considered when installing the water heater.
Polarity Sensitive
If a positive lock-up regulator is required follow these instructions:
The control system on the water heaters covered in this manual
is polarity sensitive; electronic flame sensing requires correct
polarity. The control system is programmed to monitor the
incoming power supply. If the Hot and Neutral wires in the 120
VAC power supply are reversed, the control system will declare
a Fault condition and lock out, heating operation will be disabled
until the power supply is correctly wired. The control system will
display the “AC Reversed” Fault message on the LCD.
1. Positive lock-up gas pressure regulators must be rated at or
above the input Btu/hr rating of the water heater they supply.
2. Positive lock-up gas pressure regulator(s) should be installed
no closer than 3 feet (1 meter) and no farther than 8 feet (2.4
meters) from the water heater’s inlet gas connection.
3. After installing the positive lock-up gas pressure regulator(s)
an initial nominal supply pressure setting of 7.0” W.C. while
the water heater is operating is recommended and will

The National Sanitation Foundation also recommends circulation
of 180°F (82°C) water. Where this is done, the circulation should
be very gentle so that it does not cause any unnecessary
turbulence inside the water heater. The circulation should be just
enough to provide 180°F (82°C) water at the point of take-off to
the dishwashing machine.
Some people are more likely to be permanently injured by
hot water than others. These include the elderly, children, the
infirm and the physically/mentally disabled. Table 6 shows the
approximate time-to-burn relationship for normal adult skin.
If anyone using hot water provided by the water heater being
installed fits into one of these groups or if there is a local code
or state law requiring a certain water temperature at the point of
use, then special precautions must be taken.
Adjust flow by throttling a full port ball valve installed in the
circulating line on the outlet side of the pump. Never throttle flow
on the suction side of a pump. See the Water Piping Diagrams
beginning on page 67.
In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that
satisfies the demand of the application a Mixing Valve should be
installed at the water heater (see Figure 8) or at the hot water
taps to further reduce system water temperature.
Note: To comply with NSF Standard 5 installation requirements
the bottom of the water heater must be sealed to the floor with a
silicone based sealant or elevated 6 inches above the floor.
Closed Water Systems
Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply stores. Consult
a Qualified Installer or Service Agency. Follow mixing valve
manufacturer’s instructions for installation of the valves.
Water supply systems may, because of code requirements
or such conditions as high line pressure, among others, have
installed devices such as pressure reducing valves, check
valves, and back flow preventers. Devices such as these cause
the water system to be a closed system.

Thermal Expansion
As water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion). In a closed
system the volume of water will grow when it is heated. As the
volume of water grows there will be a corresponding increase
in water pressure due to thermal expansion. Thermal expansion
can cause premature tank failure (leakage). This type of failure
is not covered under the limited warranty. Thermal expansion
can also cause intermittent Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
operation: water discharged from the valve due to excessive
pressure build up. This condition is not covered under the limited
warranty. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is not intended
for the constant relief of thermal expansion.
Dishwashing Machines
All dishwashing machines meeting the National Sanitation
Foundation requirements are designed to operate with water flow
pressures between 15 and 25 pounds per square inch (103 kPa
and 173 kPa). Flow pressures above 25 pounds per square inch
(173 kPa), or below 15 pounds per square inch (103 kPa), will
result in improperly sanitized dishes. Where pressures are high,
a water pressure reducing or flow regulating control valve should
be used in the 180°F (82°C) line to the dishwashing machine and
should be adjusted to deliver water pressure between these limits.
A properly sized thermal expansion tank must be installed on
all closed systems to control the harmful effects of thermal
expansion. Contact a local plumbing service agency to have a
thermal expansion tank installed.
See Water Line Connections on page 40 and the Water Piping
Diagrams beginning on page 67.

Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
CAUTION
Water Damage Hazard
Explosion Hazard
• Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge
pipe must terminate at adequate drain.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
must comply with ANSI Z21.22CSA 4.4 and ASME code.
T&P Valve Discharge Pipe Requirements:
Properly sized temperaturepressure relief valve must be
installed in opening provided.
• Shall not be smaller in size than the outlet pipe size of the
valve, or have any reducing couplings or other restrictions.
• Shall not be plugged or blocked.
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
• Shall not be exposed to freezing temperatures.
• Shall be of material listed for hot water distribution.
Can cause serious injury or death.
• Shall be installed so as to allow complete drainage of both
the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the discharge
pipe.
This water heater is provided with a properly rated/sized and
certified combination Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve (T&P
valve) by the manufacturer. The valve is certified by a nationally
recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection
of production of listed equipment of materials as meeting the
requirements for Relief Valves for Hot Water Supply Systems,
ANSI Z21.22 • CSA 4.4, and the code requirements of ASME.
• Must terminate a maximum of six inches above a floor
drain or external to the building. In cold climates, it is
recommended that the discharge pipe be terminated at an
adequate drain inside the building.
• Shall not have any valve or other obstruction between the
relief valve and the drain.
If replaced, the new T&P valve must meet the requirements
of local codes, but not less than a combination TemperaturePressure Relief Valve rated/sized and certified as indicated in
the above paragraph. The new valve must be marked with a
maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked hydrostatic
working pressure of the water heater (150 psi = 1,035 kPa) and
a discharge capacity not less than the water heater Btu/hr or kW
input rate as shown on the water heater’s model rating label.
Burn hazard.
Hot water discharge.
Note: In addition to the factory installed Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve on the water heater, each remote storage tank that
may be installed and piped to a water heating appliance must also
have its own properly sized, rated and approved TemperaturePressure Relief Valve installed. Call the toll free technical
support phone number listed on the back cover of this manual
for technical assistance in sizing a Temperature-Pressure Relief
Valve for remote storage tanks.
Keep clear of TemperaturePressure Relief Valve
discharge outlet.
The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve must be manually
operated at least twice a year. Caution should be taken to
ensure that (1) no one is in front of or around the outlet of the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge line, and (2) the
water manually discharged will not cause any bodily injury or
property damage because the water may be extremely hot. If
after manually operating the valve, it fails to completely reset
and continues to release water, immediately close the cold water
inlet to the water heater, follow the draining instructions in this
manual, and replace the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve with
a properly rated/sized new one.
For safe operation of the water heater, the Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve must not be removed from its designated opening
nor plugged. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve must be
installed directly into the fitting of the water heater designed for the
relief valve. Install discharge piping so that any discharge will exit
the pipe within 6 inches (15.2 cm) above an adequate floor drain,
or external to the building. In cold climates it is recommended
that it be terminated at an adequate drain inside the building. Be
certain that no contact is made with any live electrical part. The
discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under
any circumstances. Excessive length, over 30 feet (9.14 m), or
use of more than four elbows can cause restriction and reduce
the discharge capacity of the valve.
Note: The purpose of a Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is
to prevent excessive temperatures and pressures in the storage
tank. The T&P valve is not intended for the constant relief of
thermal expansion. A properly sized thermal expansion tank must
be installed on all closed systems to control thermal expansion,
see Closed Water Systems and Thermal Expansion on
page 14.
No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the tank. Do not connect
discharge piping directly to the drain unless a 6” (15.2 cm)
air gap is provided. To prevent bodily injury, hazard to life, or
property damage, the relief valve must be allowed to discharge
water in adequate quantities should circumstances demand. If
the discharge pipe is not connected to a drain or other suitable
means, the water flow may cause property damage.
If you do not understand these instructions or have any questions
regarding the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve call the toll free
number listed on the back cover of this manual for technical
assistance.

Condensate Drain
Combustible Material Storage
The water heaters covered in this manual are condensing
appliances and require a building drain to be located in close
proximity to allow the condensate to drain safely.
Fire or Explosion Hazard
Condensate drains from the water heater at the exhaust elbow
located at the bottom. The field installed condensate drain line
must not be elevated above the condensate drain connection
on the condensate trap, see Figure 9. If the condensate does
not drain properly it will build up in the exhaust (vent) elbow.
This will restrict the flow of flue gases and cause the Blocked
Exhaust pressure switch to open its contacts. The control system
monitors all pressure switches, if the Blocked Exhaust Switch
contacts are open the control system will lock out and disable
heating operation. The “Blocked Exhaust” Fault message will
be displayed on the control system’s LCD, see Fault And Alert
Conditions beginning on page 57.
Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable vapors and
liquids in the vicinity of this or any other appliance.
Avoid all ignition sources if you smell gas.
Do not expose water heater controls to excessive gas
pressure.
Use only the gas shown on the water heater rating label.
Maintain required clearances to combustibles.
Keep ignition sources away from faucets after extended
periods of non-use.
Note: If the “Blocked Exhaust “ Fault message is ever displayed
on the control system LCD, check the condensate drain first and
ensure it is not blocked.

is brought in contact with the water heater should not contain any
of these chemicals. If necessary, uncontaminated air should be
obtained from remote or outdoor sources. The limited warranty
is voided when failure of water heater is due to a corrosive
atmosphere. (See limited warranty for complete terms and
conditions).
Do not remove the factory installed condensate trap for any
reason, see Figure 9. The water heater’s vent pipe is under
a slight positive pressure. The water trap prevents flue gases
from escaping into the installed space. See Condensate Drain
Installation on page 36.
Condensate PH Level
The condensate drains from the water heater’s covered in
this manual have PH levels between 4.3 and 5.0. Install a
commercially available neutralizing kit if required by local codes.
If the water heater will be used in beauty shops, barber shops,
cleaning establishments, or self-service laundries with dry
cleaning equipment, it is imperative that the water heater(s) be
installed in a Direct Vent configuration so that all air for combustion
is derived directly from the outdoor atmosphere through a sealed
intake air pipe. See Venting Installation on page 21.
Note: Lower PH levels are acidic. Do not connect a metal drain
line, such as copper, to the water heater for this reason. See
Condensate Drain Installation on page 36.

Air Requirements
to provide air for combustion, ventilation and dilution of flue
gases. However, in buildings of unusually tight construction (for
example, weather stripping, heavily insulated, caulked, vapor
barrier, etc.) additional air must be provided using the methods
described in the Confined Space section that follows.
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
Confined Space
Install water heater in accordance with
the Instruction Manual and NFPA 54 or
CAN/CSA-B149.1.
To avoid injury, combustion and ventilation
air must be taken from outdoors.
Do not place chemical vapor emitting
products near water heater.
A Confined Space is one whose volume is less than 50 cubic
feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 cm per kW) of the total input rating of
all appliances installed in the space.
Openings must be installed to provide fresh air for combustion,
ventilation and dilution in confined spaces. The required size for
the openings is dependent on the method used to provide fresh
air to the confined space and the total Btu/hr input rating of all
appliances installed in the space.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
Direct Vent Appliances
For safe operation an adequate supply of fresh uncontaminated
air for combustion and ventilation must be provided.
Appliances installed in a Direct Vent configuration that derive all
air for combustion from the outdoor atmosphere through sealed
intake air piping are not factored in the total appliance input Btu/
hr calculations used to determine the size of openings providing
fresh air into confined spaces.
An insufficient supply of air can cause recirculation of combustion
products resulting in contamination that may be hazardous to
life. Such a condition often will result in a yellow, luminous burner
flame, causing sooting of the combustion chamber, burners and
flue tubes and creates a risk of asphyxiation.
Exhaust Fans
Where exhaust fans are installed, additional air shall be provided
to replace the exhausted air. When an exhaust fan is installed
in the same space with a water heater, sufficient openings to
provide fresh air must be provided that accommodate the
requirements for all appliances in the room and the exhaust fan.
Undersized openings will cause air to be drawn into the room
through the water heater’s vent system causing poor combustion.
Sooting, serious damage to the water heater and the risk of fire
or explosion may result. It can also create a risk of asphyxiation.
Do not install the water heater in a confined space unless an
adequate supply of air for combustion and ventilation is brought
in to that space using the methods described in the Confined
Space section that follows.
Never obstruct the flow of ventilation air. If you have any doubts
or questions at all, call your gas supplier. Failure to provide the
proper amount of combustion air can result in a fire or explosion
and cause property damage, serious bodily injury or death.
Unconfined Space
Louvers and Grilles
An Unconfined Space is one whose volume is not less than
50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the
total input rating of all appliances installed in the space. Rooms
communicating directly with the space, in which the appliances
are installed, through openings not furnished with doors, are
considered a part of the unconfined space.
The free areas of the fresh air openings in the instructions that
follow do not take in to account the presence of louvers, grilles or
screens in the openings.
The required size of openings for combustion, ventilation and
dilution air shall be based on the “net free area” of each opening.
Where the free area through a design of louver or grille or screen
is known, it shall be used in calculating the size of opening
required to provide the free area specified. Where the louver and
grille design and free area are not known, it shall be assumed
that wood louvers will have 25% free area and metal louvers and
grilles will have 75% free area. Non motorized louvers and grilles
shall be fixed in the open position.
Makeup air requirements for the operation of exhaust fans,
kitchen ventilation systems, clothes dryers and fireplaces shall
also be considered in determining the adequacy of a space to
provide combustion, ventilation and dilution air.
Unusually Tight Construction
In unconfined spaces in buildings, infiltration may be adequate

must be installed in a Direct Vent configuration.
2. If the water heater is to be installed in a beauty shop,
barber shop, cleaning establishment, a laundry with dry
cleaning equipment or any space with contaminated air it is
imperative that the water heater(s) be installed in a Direct
Vent configuration so that all air for combustion is derived
from the outdoor atmosphere.
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
• Install vent system in accordance with codes.
• Do not operate water heater if flood damaged.
• Special consideration must be taken with installations
above 10,000 feet (3,048 m) refer to high altitude
section of this manual.
• Do not operate if soot buildup.
• Do not obstruct water heater air intake with insulating
3. The vent and intake air piping must terminate outdoors.

outdoors and has adequate air supply to avoid risks
of improper operation, fire, explosion or asphyxiation.
6. The vent (exhaust) pipe must not be combined or connected
to any other appliance’s vent system or chimney.
• Analyze the entire vent system to make sure that
condensate will not become trapped in a section of
vent pipe and therefore reduce the open cross
sectional area of the vent.
7. The intake air pipe must not be combined or connected to
any other appliance’s intake air piping.
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or death.
Always read and understand the instruction manual.
8. Locate the water heater where the vent (exhaust) and intake
air piping will remain within the maximum equivalent lengths
allowed. See Venting Requirements on page 22.
Never operate the water heater unless it is vented to the
outdoors.
9. Do not install the vent or intake air piping in a manner that will
allow water to be trapped in the piping.
The instructions in this section of the manual must be followed
to avoid choked combustion or recirculation of flue gases. Such
conditions cause sooting of the combustion chamber, burners
and flue tubes and creates a risk of asphyxiation.
10.Vent pipes must be pitched a minimum of a 1/4 inch per foot
back to the water heater (to allow drainage of condensate).
11.Do not anchor the vent or intake air pipe directly to framed
walls, floors or ceilings unless rubber isolation pipe hangers
are used to prevent vibration noise from being transmitted.
General Venting Information
The water heaters covered in this manual are operationally
equivalent to Category IV appliances and may be installed in
either a Power Vent or Direct Vent configuration.
12.Use only approved vent/intake air pipe sizes and materials.
See Venting Requirements on page 22.
13.Use only factory supplied vent and intake air or concentric
terminations. See the Venting Requirements on page 22.
Category IV Appliance
Category IV appliances operate with a positive vent (exhaust)
static pressure and with vent gas temperatures low enough to
produce condensate in the vent piping.
14.Do not locate the vent (exhaust) or intake air terminations
where they would be objectionable due to noise at the
termination(s). This includes locations close to or across from
windows and doors.
Power Vent Configuration
Power Vent configurations derive all combustion air from the
room where they are installed and discharge all flue gases to
the outdoor atmosphere through a sealed vent (exhaust) pipe.
Power vent configurations have one vent pipe connected to the
water heater which can be terminated in a vertical or horizontal
arrangement. See Figure 40 and Figure 41 on page 32.
15.Direct venting into dead air spaces such as alleys, atriums,
and inside corners can cause recirculation of flue gases.
Recirculation of flue gases will cause sooting, premature
failure of the heat exchanger and icing of the combustion
air intake during severe cold weather. To prevent the
recirculation of flue gases, maintain as much distance as
possible between the intake air and vent terminations.
Direct Vent Configuration
Direct Vent configurations derive all combustion air directly from
the outdoor atmosphere through a sealed intake air pipe and
discharge all flue gases to the outdoor atmosphere through a
sealed vent (exhaust) pipe. Direct Vent configurations have two
pipes connected to the water heater, one vent pipe and one
intake air pipe. Direct Vent configurations can be terminated in
one of six different arrangements. See Figure 42 on page 32
through Figure 47 on page 33.
16.Do not locate the vent termination over a public area where
condensate or vapor can cause a nuisance or ice hazard.
17.Ensure the screens in the factory supplied terminations are
securely installed to prevent blockage in the vent system.
These instructions must be followed on all installations.
18.Stress levels in pipe/fittings can be significantly increased by
improper installation. If rigid pipe clamps are used to hold
the pipe in place, or if the pipe cannot move freely through a
wall penetration, the pipe may be stressed, or high thermal
stresses may be formed when the pipe heats up and expands.
Install accordingly to minimize such stresses.
1. Do not install the water heater in a Power Vent configuration
unless there is adequate supply of fresh air, see Air

Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
Note: Do not leave the screen inside the Intake Air
connection in Direct Vent installations. Once the intake air
pipe is installed the screen will be hidden from view and
may become clogged with debris over time. This will cause
improper combustion.
Note: On flat roof installations the intake air and the vent
terminations must be a minimum of 24 inches (60 cm) above
any parapet, vertical wall or structure within 10 feet (3 m)

Sidewall Termination Installation
(18 cm) diameter hole for 6 inch pipe where the pipe(s) will
pass through the wall.
1. Determine the location for the termination(s).
Note: Beware of concealed wiring and piping when cutting
through the wall.
2. If installing only vent (exhaust) piping in a Power Vent
configuration through a sidewall; ensure that all exterior
sidewall clearance requirements for the termination, shown
in Figure 48 on page 34, are being maintained. These
clearances and those cited by local and national codes must
be maintained.
8. Cut a length(s) of pipe being installed 3.5 inches (8.9 cm)
to 9.5 inches (24.1 cm) longer than the wall thickness at the
opening. See Figure 23.
Note: Vent Termination – exhaust gases of this water
heater are less than 140°F. In cold climates water vapor in
the exhaust gases will condense into a cloud of vapor where
the vent exits the building. This vapor can gradually discolor
exterior building surfaces. The vent termination should be
located where this vapor cloud and potential discoloration
are not a concern. Extending the exposed vent piping up to
a maximum of 6 inches (15.2 cm) from the wall helps vapor
from being trapped along a building’s face. To avoid this
problem, the vent can also be terminated vertically through
the roof, see Vertical Termination Installation on page 24.
3. If installing both intake air and vent piping in a Direct Vent
configuration through a sidewall; ensure that all exterior
sidewall clearance requirements for the terminations, shown
in Figure 49 on page 35, for the vent and intake air termination
are being maintained. These clearances and those cited by
local and national codes must be maintained.
4. If installing both an intake air and vent termination in a Direct
Vent configuration through a sidewall there must be a minimum
of 24 inches (61 cm) separation, measured on vertical center
line, between the intake air and vent terminations, see Figure
22.
9. Cement the intake air and/or vent termination to the section(s)
of pipe cut to length in the above Step.
Note: In colder climates this separation should be increased
to at least 48 inches (122 cm) between the intake air and
vent termination or any other appliance vent that discharges
moisture-laden air such as clothes dryers. This will reduce
possibility of frost over from side winds blowing exhaust
vapors to the intake air termination and is recommended for
Canadian installations.
10.Slide the included metal wall plate(s) over the pipe(s) to stop
against the intake air and/or vent termination. Place some
silicone caulking (field supplied) on the back of the wall
plate(s) to secure it to the wall.
11.Working from outside, slide the pipe and termination(s)
assembled in the above steps through the wall. Ensure the
termination(s) is pointed down towards the ground. See
Figure 23.
5. If installing both intake air and vent terminations in a Direct
Vent configuration through a sidewall the intake air and
vent terminations must be installed at the same elevation
measured on horizontal center line - see Figure 22.

13.Press the wall plate flush against the outside wall.
14.Working from the inside apply enough silicone caulking on
the back of the interior wall plate(s) to hold it in place and
slide the wall plate over the installed pipe(s).
6. When the intake air and/or vent piping from multiple water
heaters will terminate at the same location through a sidewall,
the vent terminations can be grouped together in close
proximity - 0 inches/touching. The intake air terminations
can also be grouped together in close proximity - 0 inches/
touching.
15.Install a coupling to the end of the pipe(s) inside the building.
Before the silicone caulking has time to completely set go
outside the building and ensure the termination(s) is still
pointing down towards the ground. See Figure 23.
However, the distance between the closest vent and intake
air terminations must be a minimum of 24 inches (61 cm).
In colder climates this separation should be increased to at
least 48 inches (122 cm). See Figure 22.

termination. Use only Schedule 40 PVC to extend the 6 inch
concentric termination.
1. Determine which concentric termination will be installed.
SUF 130 300 models installed using 4 inch vent/intake air
piping use the 4 inch concentric termination. SUF 130 300
models installed using 6 inch vent/intake air piping use the
6 inch concentric termination. SUF 130 400 and 500 models
must use the 6 inch concentric termination on all installations,
see Venting Requirements on page 22.
When shortening the length of the termination carefully
measure and cut the larger (intake air) pipe first. Cut the
same amount of pipe off of the smaller (vent) pipe.
10.Depending on which termination(s) is being installed go to 4
Inch Concentric Termination Installation on page 28 or 6 Inch
Concentric Termination Installation on page 29.
2. Determine the location for the termination.
Note: Roof termination is preferred since it is less susceptible
to damage, has reduced chances to intake contaminants and
vent vapors are less visible.
3. When installing a concentric termination vertically through the
roof; ensure that all exterior vertical clearance requirements
for the concentric termination, shown in Figure 27 on page
28 and Figure 30 on page 29, are being maintained. These
clearances and those cited by local and national codes must
be maintained.
CONCENTRIC TERMINATION(S)
MUST BE A MINIMUM OF 10 FEET
(3 m) AWAY FROM ANY PARAPET,
VERTICAL WALL OR

4. When installing a concentric termination vertically through a
flat roof, the termination's vent cap must be a minimum of 10
feet (3 m) away from any parapet, vertical wall or structure as
shown in Figure 24 and Figure 25.
Note: If this required distance to a parapet, vertical wall or
structure cannot be maintained, standard terminations must
be used. See Vertical Termination Installation on page 24.
5. When installing a concentric termination through a sidewall;
ensure that all exterior sidewall clearance requirements for
the termination, shown in Figure 49 on page 35, are being
maintained. These clearances and those cited by local and
national codes must be maintained.
4 INCH CONCENTRIC TERMINATION

6. When installing multiple concentric terminations vertically
through a roof or horizontally through a sidewall ensure the
required clearances between terminations and groupings of
multiple terminations are maintained. See pages 30 and 31
for more information.
Figure 24
7. Cut a 5 inch (13 cm) diameter hole for 4 inch concentric
terminations or 7 inch (18 cm) diameter hole for 6 inch
concentric terminations where they will pass through the wall
or roof.
Note: Beware of concealed wiring and piping when cutting
through the wall or roof.
CONCENTRIC TERMINATION(S)
MUST BE A MINIMUM OF 10 FEET
(3 m) AWAY FROM ANY PARAPET,
VERTICAL WALL OR
STRUCTURE.
8. When installing multiple concentric terminations vertically
through the roof in the same location the termination caps
for all concentric terminations must be at the same height
measured from ground. See Multiple Concentric Termination
Arrangements on page 31.
9. Determine if the concentric termination will need to be
shortened or lengthened to accommodate required
clearances or to ensure all vent caps are at the same height
when installing multiple terminations vertically through the
roof in the same location.
See Figure 26 on page 28 and Figure 29 on page 29 for the
maximum and minimum lengths allowed for the 4 inch and 6
inch concentric terminations.
When extending the length of a concentric termination
do not use couplings. The use of couplings will restrict
flow through the termination and may cause improper
combustion. The termination’s intake air and vent pipes must
be replaced with longer sections of the same pipe material
when extending the length of the termination.

Multiple Concentric Termination Clearances
Four Concentric Terminations
When installing multiple concentric terminations vertically through
a roof or horizontally through a sidewall ensure the required
clearances (separation) between terminations are maintained.
Ensure multiple terminations are arranged or grouped as
required.
1. When installing four concentric terminations through a roof or
through a sidewall in close proximity they may be arranged
into stacked rows of two as shown in Figure 34 or lateral rows
of two as shown in Figure 35.
2. Four is the maximum number of concentric terminations that
may be installed in a group where all terminations are in close
proximity as shown in Figure 34.
Note: These clearances must be maintained to prevent the
recirculation of vent (exhaust) gases to the intake air. Clearances
are measured between the edges of the concentric termination
caps.

than 1/2 inch PVC in size.
Installation must conform with these instructions and local
building codes.
3. Do not remove, modify or alter the factory condensate trap.
Condensate neutralizer kits are available. Contact your distributor
or Service Agency.
1. Ensure the water heater’s on/off switch is in the “off”
position.
Field supplied materials required for installation include:
2. Install a 1/2 inch PVC condensate drain line between the
condensate drain connection on the Condensate Drain Trap
and a suitable building drain, see Figure 50 and Figure 51.
Installation Instructions
• Approved PVC cement and PVC primer.
• 1/2 inch PVC pipe - minimum length to equal the distance
between the water heater and a suitable building drain.
• 1/2 inch PVC fittings (elbows and couplings) necessary to
install a condensate drain line between the Condensate
Drain Trap Assembly and a suitable building drain.
• Floor mounted standoffs to brace the drain line.
Installation Notes
3. Terminate the condensate drain piping with an elbow above
the drain. Ensure that any discharge will exit the condensate
drain line no more than 6 inches (15.2 cm) above a suitable
building drain, or external to the building, see Figure 50.
Note: In cold climates it is recommended the condensate
drain be terminated at a suitable drain inside the building.
4. Ensure the condensate drain line is not elevated above the
condensate drain connection on the trap, see Figure 51.
1. The condensate drains from the water heater’s covered by
this instruction have PH levels between 4.3 and 5.0. Install
a commercially available neutralizing kit if required by local
codes. Lower PH levels are acidic. Do not connect a metal
condensate drain line, such as copper pipe, to the water
heater for this reason.
5. Brace the condensate drain line with floor mounted standoffs
every three feet.
6. Ensure the condensate drains freely during start up, see
Start Up on page 50.

Supply Gas Line Installation
Gas Line Sizing
Contact your local gas utility company to ensure that adequate
gas service is available and to review applicable installation
codes for your area.
Do not use flexible gas piping.
Minimum required supply gas line sizes are shown in Table 5 on
page 13. Depending on the developed equivalent length and/or
the number of appliances connected to a common main, the size
of supply gas lines may have to be increased.
Be sure that the gas meter has sufficient capacity to supply the
rated gas input of the water heater as well as the requirements
of all other gas fired equipment supplied by the meter. If the
gas meter is undersized, the gas company will have to install a
properly sized gas meter.
Size the supply/main gas line(s) in accordance with Table 8 or
Table 9. The values given in Table 8 and Table 9 are for straight
lengths of iron pipe at 0.5" W. C. (125 Pa) pressure drop, which
is considered normal for low pressure systems. Note that fittings
such as elbows and tees will add to the pipe pressure drop.
Fire and Explosion Hazard
Supply Gas Line Sizing U. S. Units

Do not use water heater with any gas
other than the gas shown on the rating
label.
Excessive gas pressure to gas valve can
cause serious injury or death.
Turn off gas lines during installation.
Contact a qualified installer or service
agency for installation and service.

Make sure gas supplied is same type listed on the water heater’s
rating label.
The water heaters covered in this manual are not intended for
operation at higher than 10.0” W. C. (2.49 kPa) for natural gas and
12.0” W. C. (2.99 kPa) for propane gas supply pressure, see Table
4 on page 13. The water heaters covered in this manual require
supply gas regulators to maintain required supply gas pressure.
Exposure to higher gas supply pressure may cause damage to the
gas controls which could result in fire or explosion. If overpressure
has occurred such as through improper testing of gas lines or
malfunction of the supply system the water heater’s gas valve
must be checked for safe operation by a Qualified Service Agency.
Ensure supply regulator vent lines and the safety vent valves are
protected against blockage. These are components of the gas
supply system, not the water heater. Vent blockage may occur
during ice storms.

Gas Line Connection
Gas Line Leak Testing
1. The water heaters covered by this manual are shipped from
the factory with a 1 1/4” supply gas connection except 500
natural gas model, see Table 1 on page 10. Short pipe nipples
and reducer couplings are factory installed to increase the
size of the water heater’s 24 VAC Gas Valve inlet, see Figure
53. Connect the supply gas line to the water heater's 24
VAC Gas Valve in accordance with all applicable local and
national code requirements. Do not use flexible gas piping.
Fire and Explosion Hazard
Use joint compound or Teflon tape
compatible with propane gas.
Leak test before placing the
water heater in operation.
2. SUF 130 500 natural gas models require a 1 1/2” minimum
supply gas line. All other water heaters covered by this manual
require a 1 1/4” minimum supply gas line. See Table 5 on
page 13.
Disconnect gas piping and main
gas shutoff valve before leak
testing.
Install sediment trap in
accordance with NFPA 54.
3. Apply thread sealing compounds (pipe dope/ Teflon tape)
sparingly and only to the male threads of the pipe joints. Do
not apply sealing compound to the first two threads. Use pipe
dope or Teflon tape marked as being resistant to the action of
liquid petroleum (LP/propane) gases.
Any time work is done on the gas supply system perform a
leak test to avoid the possibility of fire or explosion.
4. Use only a smooth jaw adjustable wrench (such as a monkey
wrench) as a back up on the body of the 24 VAC Gas Valve
when tightening the first pipe nipple into the body of the valve.
Do not use a standard pipe wrench (Stillson wrench) with
metal tooth jaws as this may permanently damage the valve.
1. For test pressures exceeding 1/2 psi (3.45 kPa) disconnect
the water heater and its Main Gas Shutoff Valve from the
gas supply piping system during testing, see Figure 52
on page 38. The gas supply line must be capped when
disconnected from the water heater.
5. Use a standard pipe wrench (Stillson wrench) as a back up
on the first pipe nipple installed above when connecting other
fittings and pipe in the supply gas line to prevent the 24 VAC
Gas Valve on the water heater from twisting during installation.
2. For test pressures of 1/2 psi (3.45 kpa) or less, the
appliance need not be disconnected, but must be isolated
from the supply gas line by closing the Main Gas Shutoff
Valve during testing.
6. To prevent damage, care must be taken not to apply too much
torque when connecting the supply gas line to the water heater.
8. Install a Main Gas Shutoff valve in the supply gas line as
shown in Figure 52 on page 37.
3. Paint all supply gas line joints and connections upstream
of the water heater with a rich soap and water solution
to test for leaks. Bubbles indicate a gas leak. Do not use
matches, candles, flame or other sources of ignition for
this purpose.
Note: Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut
off, turn off the Main Gas Shutoff valve to the water heater.
4. Repair any leaks before placing the water heater in
operation.
7. Install a sediment trap (drip leg) as shown in Figure 52 on
page 37.

3. Remove the screws from the CCB enclosure cover and
carefully open the CCB enclosure. Note how strain relief for
the wiring is provided between the cover and enclosure along
one edge.
1. Turn off power at the water heater’s on/off switch and the
breaker that supplies power to the appliance.
2. Locate the CCB enclosure.
Read the requirements for the Power Supply on page 13 before
connecting power.
Correct Polarity:
The water heater’s control system is polarity sensitive and
will lock out and disable heating operation if the polarity of the
power supply is reversed. The control system will display the
“AC Reversed” Fault message on the LCD. The 120 VAC hot
wire from the power supply must connect to the black wire in the
junction box and the 120 VAC neutral wire must connect to the
white wire in the junction box for correct polarity.
4. Activate the enable/disable circuit; locate the S1 dipswitch on
the CCB, see Figure 61 on page 63.
Power supply connections must be made as follows:
6. Cut the black jumper wire in the middle.
• Toggle S1 dipswitch #2 to the open position.
• Toggle S1 dipswitch #3 to the open position.
5. Locate the black jumper wire between pin 8 and 11 on the
CCB J6 plug, see Figure 61 on page 63 and Figure 62 on
page 64.
1. Ensure the power supply is turned off at the breaker or
disconnect switch.
7. Strip approximately 1/2 inch of insulation from the two ends
of the black jumper wire.
2. Remove the junction box cover. See Figure 3 on page 8 for
junction box location.
8. Using wire nuts connect two field supplied control wires to
the two ends of the black jumper wire. Wrap electrical tape
around the wire nut connections.
3. Connect the 120 VAC hot wire from the power supply to the
black wire in the junction box on top of the water heater with a
properly sized wire nut. Wrap electrical tape around the wire
nut and wire end. See wiring diagrams Figure 62 on page 64
and Figure 63 on page 65.
9. Thread the control wires out of the CCB enclosure with the
other wiring and carefully replace the CCB enclosure cover.
Ensure all wiring is routed through the indented area provided
for strain relief. Ensure no wiring is being pinched.
4. Connect the 120 VAC neutral wire from the power supply to
the white wire in the junction box. Wrap electrical tape around
the wire nut and wire end. See wiring diagrams Figure 62 on
page 64 and Figure 63 on page 65.
10.Reinstall the CCB enclosure cover screws and tighten.
11.Route the control wires inside the junction box on the top
of the water heater, see Figure 3 on page 8 to locate the
junction box. Use an available knock-out to route the wires
inside the junction box.
5. Connect the ground wire from the power supply to the
grounding lug inside the junction box. See wiring diagrams
Figure 62 on page 64 and Figure 63 on page 65.
12.Install field supplied control wiring and conduit as required
by national and local codes between the water heater’s
junction box and the external supervisory control. Connect
the wiring from the external control to the control wires inside
the junction box using wire nuts and electrical tape.
6. Replace the junction box cover when connections are
complete.
Note: Do not apply power to the water heater before installation
is complete and the water heater is filled with water.
13.Connect the control wiring to a set of dry contacts on the
external control. Follow the control manufacturers instructions
for making connections.
Enable/Disable Circuit
The water heaters covered in this manual are equipped with
an enable/disable circuit for use with field supplied external
supervisory controls such as time clocks or building Building
Management Systems. The enable/disable circuit may be used
to disable heating operation during periods when the building is
unoccupied or there is no demand for hot water.
14.Restore power to the water heater.
Note: Whenever the external control opens the set of dry
contacts used, heating operation will be disabled. Whenever
the external control closes the set of dry contacts used, heating
operation will be enabled. A diagonal line and circle appears
over the thermometer icon on the control system’s display when
heating operation is disabled. See the Status Icons descriptions
in Table 11 on page 43.
To use the enable/disable circuit it must first be activated by
configuring the S1 dipswitch on the water heater’s CCB (central
control board), see Figure 61 on page 63. Field supplied wiring is
then installed between the water heater’s CCB and a set of “dry
contacts” (no voltage or load) on the field supplied external control.
Note: Ensure the water heater is protected from freezing
temperatures when heating operation is disabled. Damage to
the water heater caused by freezing temperatures is not covered
under the limited warranty.
Note: The water heater’s enable/disable circuit is a switching
circuit only: Do not apply external voltage or connect any load

Water Piping Diagrams
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
This manual provides detailed water piping diagrams for typical
methods of application for the water heaters, see Water Piping
Diagrams beginning 67.
Can cause serious injury or death.
The water heater may be installed by itself, or with a separate
storage tank. When used with a separate storage tank, the
circulation may be either by gravity or by means of circulating
pump. When a circulating pump is used, it is important to note
that the flow rate should be slow so that there will be a minimum
of turbulence inside the water heater storage tank.
This water heater is provided with a properly rated/sized and
certified combination temperature - pressure (T&P) relief valve
by the manufacturer. See Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve on
page 15 for information on replacement and other requirements.
CAUTION
Adjust flow by throttling a full port ball valve installed in the
circulating line on the outlet side of the pump. Never throttle flow
on the suction side of a pump. See the Water Piping Diagrams
beginning on page 67.
Water Damage Hazard
Note: In addition to the factory installed Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve (T&P valve) on the water heater, each remote
storage tank that may be installed and piped to a water heating
appliance must also have its own properly sized, rated and
approved Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve installed.
• Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge
pipe must terminate at adequate drain.
Install a discharge pipe between the T&P valve discharge opening
and a suitable floor drain. Do not connect discharge piping
directly to the drain unless a 6” (15.2 cm) air gap is provided.
To prevent bodily injury, hazard to life, or property damage, the
relief valve must be allowed to discharge water in adequate
quantities should circumstances demand. If the discharge pipe is
not connected to a drain or other suitable means, the water flow
may cause property damage.
Call the toll free technical support phone number listed on the
back cover of this manual for further assistance in sizing a T&P
valve for remote storage tanks.
Thermometers (not Supplied)
Thermometers are installed in the water piping system as a
means of detecting the temperature of the hot water supply
at critical points in the system. Field supplied thermometers
should be obtained and installed. See Water Piping Diagrams on
page 67.
T&P Valve Discharge Pipe Requirements:
• Shall not be smaller in size than the outlet pipe size of the
valve, or have any reducing couplings or other restrictions.
• Shall not be plugged or blocked.
• Shall not be exposed to freezing temperatures.
• Shall be of material listed for hot water distribution.
• Shall be installed so as to allow complete drainage of both
the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve and the discharge
pipe.
• Must terminate a maximum of six inches above a floor
drain or external to the building. In cold climates, it is
recommended that the discharge pipe be terminated at an
adequate drain inside the building.
• Shall not have any valve or other obstruction between the
relief valve and the drain.
Water (potable) Heating And Space Heating
1. All water piping components connected to the water heater
that are for space heating applications shall be suitable for
use with potable water.
2. Toxic chemicals, such as those used for boiler treatment,
must NEVER be introduced into this system.
3. The water heaters covered in this manual may never be
connected to any existing heating system or component(s)
previously used with non-potable water heating appliance.
4. When the system requires water for space heating that
exceed safe temperatures at domestic water fixtures a mixing
valve must be installed, see Mixing Valves on page 14.
5. These water heaters cannot be used in space heating
applications only.

Temperature Regulation
High Temperature Limit Control (ECO)
Setting the Operating Set Point at 120°F (49°C) will reduce the
risk of scalds. Some States require settings at specific lower
temperatures.
This water heater is equipped with an ECO (energy cut out) non
adjustable high temperature limit switch. The ECO is a normally
closed switch that opens (activates) on a rise in temperature.
Table 10
The ECO is located inside the Upper Temperature Probe (two
red wires), see Figure 3 on page 41 for location. The ECO
switch contacts will open when the water temperature reaches
approximately 202°F (94°C) and close at approximately 140°F
(49°C).
Time to Produce 2nd & 3rd
Degree Burns on Adult Skin
Water Temperature
If the ECO activates (contacts open) due to abnormally high
water temperatures in the storage tank the control system will
immediately de-energize the 24 VAC Gas Valve and end the
current heating cycle. The control system will "lock out" disabling
further heating operation. The control system will display the
"Energy Cut Out (ECO)" Fault message on the LCD screen.
It is important that a Qualified Service Agent be contacted to
determine the reason for the ECO activation before resetting the
ECO. Once the reason has been determined and corrected the
ECO can be reset as follows:
180°F (82°C)
Nearly instantaneous
170°F (77°C)
Nearly instantaneous
160°F (71°C)
About 1/2 second
150°F (66°C)
About 1-1/2 seconds
140°F (60°C)
Less than 5 seconds
130°F (54°C)
About 30 seconds
120°F (49°C)
More than 5 minutes
The water heaters covered in this manual are equipped with
an electronic control system to regulate the water temperature
inside the storage tank. The control system senses temperature
from two factory installed temperature probes, one installed in
the top of the storage tank and one installed near the bottom,
See Figure 3 on page 8 and Figure 4 on page 9 for location.
Should the ECO activate, the water temperature must drop below
140°F (49°C) before the control system can be reset. Once the
water temperature has cooled below this point the power supply
to the water heater must be turned off and on again to reset the
control system.
The “Operating Set Point” is adjusted to regulate water
temperature inside the storage tank. This is an adjustable user
setting in the control system’s “Temperatures Menu.” This and
all control system menus are accessed through the UIM (user
interface module) located on the front of the water heater, see
Figure 54.
Thermostat Control
Water temperature over 125°F (52°C)
can cause severe burns instantly
resulting in severe injury or death.
The Operating Set Point is adjustable from 90°F (42°C) to 180°F
(82°C). The factory setting is 120°F (49°C). See Operating Set
Point And Differential Adjustment on page 41 for instructions on
how to adjust the Operating Set Point and other user settings.
Children, the elderly and the
physically or mentally disabled are at
highest risk for scald injury.
Set the Operating Set Point at the lowest setting which produces
an acceptable hot water supply. This will always provide the most
energy efficient operation.
Feel water before bathing or
showering.
High Temperature Applications
Temperature limiting devices such as
mixing valves must be installed
when required by codes and to
ensure safe temperatures at fixtures.
Higher operating temperatures cause more wear on all water
heaters and will decrease the life span of the appliance. Consider
installing a small booster water heater for high temperature
applications, such as commercial dishwashers, to raise the outlet
temperature from the larger primary water heater to the desired
point of use temperature.
Hot water temperatures required for automatic dishwasher and
laundry use can cause scald burns resulting in serious personal
injury and/or death. Table 10 shows the approximate time-toburn relationship for normal adult skin.
Contact your local distributor or call the technical support phone
number listed on the back cover of this manual for further
technical assistance.
The temperature at which injury occurs varies with the person’s
age and duration of exposure. The slower response time of
children, the elderly or disabled persons increases the hazards
to them. If anyone using hot water provided by the water heater
being installed fits into one of these groups or if there is a local
code or state law requiring a certain water temperature at the
point of use, then special precautions must be taken.

Description
Standby
The water heater is not in an active heating cycle. IE: the Tank Temperature is at or above the Operating Set Point.
Input Verification
The control system is conducting a diagnostic check at the beginning of a heating cycle.
Short Cycle Delay
The control system is waiting for a pre-defined time period to expire before initiating a heating cycle. This prevents "shortcycling" which can greatly accelerate wear on components such as the Hot Surface Igniter and Combustion Blower.
Note: If the control system is in this operational state increase the Differential setting in the Temperatures menu to lengthen
heating cycles.
Pre-Purge
The Combustion Blower is energized to flush residual flue gases from the combustion chamber prior to ignition.
Igniter Warm Up
The Hot Surface Igniter is energized and is currently warming up to ensure proper ignition.
See the Sequence Of Operation on page 54 for minimum current (AC amps) information.
Ignition Activation
The 24 VAC Gas Valve is energized and opens to allow fuel gas to flow to the Main Burner.
Ignition Verification
The control system is monitoring the flame sensor for the required minimum flame sensing current.
See the Sequence Of Operation on page 54 for minimum flame sensing current (DC micro amps) information.
Inter-Purge
The Combustion Blower is energized to flush residual fuel gas from the combustion chamber after a failed ignition attempt.
Heating
Ignition was successful, flame sensing current has been established. The water in the storage tank is being heated.
Post-Purge
The Combustion Blower is energized to flush residual flue gases from the combustion chamber at the end of a heating
cycle.
Fault
The control system has detected a Fault condition. Heating operation is disabled until the Fault condition is corrected. Power
to the water heater must be cycled off and on to reset the control system.

Operating Set Point And Differential Adjustment
The Operating Set Point is adjustable from 90°F (42°C) to 180°F (82°C). The factory setting is 120°F (49°C). The Differential is
adjustable from 2° to 20°. The factory setting is 8°. These user settings are accessed from the Temperatures menu. The following
instructions will explain how to adjust these settings and navigate the control system menus.
When the water temperature sensed by the control system from the two (upper and lower) Temperature Probes reaches the Operating
Set Point the control system will end the heating cycle. A heating cycle will be activated again when the sensed water temperature
drops below the Operating Set Point minus the Differential setting.
Note: Lower Differential settings may cause excessive heating cycles (short-cycling) which can cause premature failure of
components such as the Hot Surface Igniter. Set the Differential at the highest setting which produces an acceptable hot water
supply. Set the Operating Set Point to the lowest setting which produces an acceptable hot water supply for most efficient use.

The Upper and Lower Probe Offsets are used to calibrate
control system temperature sensing. This can improve the
precision of temperature control in the storage tank and at
points of use. This feature can also be used to compensate
for building recirculation loops (hot water returning to the
storage tank) that may cause the heating cycles to terminate
prematurely.
Example: If the current sensed temperature from a
temperature probe is 120°F (49°C) and the Offset setting for
that probe is adjusted to a value other than 0°, the control
system would calibrate or “offset” the sensed temperature
from the probe and the averaged tank temperature. Heating
cycles would be activated and deactivated based on the
calibrated (offset) temperature.

• Two digital manometers can be used in place of U-tube
manometers or pressure gauges. Recommended ranges;
-14.00 to +14.00” W.C. (0-3.5 kPa) resolution 0.01” W.C.
and 0-35” W.C. (0-8.7 kPa) resolution 0.10” W.C.
Note: All test equipment must be acclimated to ambient
temperature before calibration and use.
Light the water heater in accordance with the Lighting and Operation
Instruction label on the water heater and in this manual on page 53.
The water heaters covered by this manual are equipped with
an electronic control system (see page 42) which automatically
sequences the Combustion Blower, pre and post purging of the
combustion chamber, the Hot Surface Igniter, the 24 VAC Gas
Valve, Main Burner ignition, and flame sensing. The control
system will lock out after three unsuccessful ignition attempts.
Preparation
1. Using the control system menus, change the Operating Set
Point to the lowest temperature setting, see Operating Set
Point And Differential Adjustment on page 45.
Before attempting start up, thoroughly study and familiarize
yourself with the exact Sequence Of Operation, see the written

2. Turn the water heater’s on/off switch to the “off” position.
3. Close the Main Gas Shut Off Valve, see Figure 52 on page 37.
Be certain that the water heater is full of water, that air is purged
from the gas and water lines and that there are no leaks in the
gas and water lines. Ensure all inlet water valves are open.
4. Push in the gas control knob slightly and turn to the
“off”position, see Figure 56 on page 51.
Filling The Water Heater
6. Connect one manometer (higher range) to an available test
port on the supply gas line at the water heater. There is a
1/8" NPT Tee fitting and pipe nipple installed for the Low
Gas Pressure switch on the inlet side of the 24 VAC Gas
Valve with a 1/8" NPT plug for this purpose. For SUF 130 400
and 500 natural gas models, connect the manometer to the
supply gas pressure test port, Fig 57 on page 52.
5. Wait five (5) minutes for any residual gas to clear.
Follow these steps to fill the water heater prior to start up.
1. Close the heater drain valve.
2. Open a nearby hot water faucet to permit the air in the system
to escape.
3. Fully open the cold water inlet valve allowing the piping and
water heater to fill with water.
7. Connect one manometer (lower range) to the manifold gas
pressure tap at the outlet of the 24 VAC Gas Valve, see
Figure 56 on page 51 and Figure 57 on page 52 for location.
4. Close the hot water faucet opened in Step 2 as water starts to flow.
Supply Gas Line Purging
8. Open the Main Gas Shutoff Valve.
9. Measure and record the supply gas pressure, this is a “static”
supply gas pressure reading; while the water heater is not
firing. Adjust supply gas pressure as necessary, see Supply
Gas Pressure Adjustment on page 51.
Fire or Explosion Hazard
Gas line purging is required with new piping or systems in
which air has entered.
Lighting The Water Heater
To avoid risk of fire or explosion purge discharge must not
enter into confined areas or spaces where ignition can occur.
1. Push in the gas control knob slightly and turn to the “on”
position, see Figure 56 on page 51.
The area must be well ventilated and all sources of ignition
must be deactivated or removed.
2. Turn the water heater’s on/off switch to the “on” position.
3. Wait for the control system to complete its boot up sequence.
The Desktop screen showing the current Operating Set
Point and Tank Temperature will be displayed on the control
system’s LCD when the boot up sequence is complete.
Use only the gas shown on the water heater rating label.
Keep ignition sources away from faucets after extended
periods of non-use.
4. Using the control system menus and UIM (user interface
module), change the Operating Set Point to a setting higher
than the current tank temperature displayed on the control
system LCD plus the Differential setting to activate a call for
heating. See Control System Operation on page 42.
Read instruction manual before
installing, using or servicing
water heater.
5. Record the manifold gas pressure when the 24 VAC Gas
Valve is energized and the Main Burner is ignited, the
animated gas valve icon will be displayed on the Desktop
screen of the control system’s LCD when the control system
energizes the 24 VAC Gas Valve, a animated flame icon will
appear when Main Burner ignition is successful, see the
Status Icons descriptions in Table 11 on page 43.
1. Close the Main Gas Shutoff Valve, see Figure 52 on page 37.
2. Purge all air from the supply gas line up to the water heater’s
Main Gas Shutoff Valve.
3. When all air has been purged from the supply gas line, tighten
all supply gas line connections.
50
Note: A pressure drop of more than 1.5” W. C. (0.37 kPa) when
the Main Burner ignites is an indication of an inadequate supply
of gas and can lead to ignition failure, rough starts and/or rough
operation. If a drop of more than 1.5” W. C. (0.37 kPa) in supply
gas pressure occurs when the Main Burner ignites, ensure the
supply gas lines and regulator(s) are properly sized and installed.
See the requirements for Supply Gas Regulator and Supply Gas
Line on page 13. See Supply Gas Line Installation on page 51
and Supply Gas Regulator on page 13. Ensure all requirements
and installation instructions are maintained.
6. Compare the actual manifold gas pressure reading recorded
above to the required minimum/maximum values given
in Table 4 on page 13. Adjust manifold gas pressure as
necessary, see the instructions that follow.
7. Record the supply gas pressure when the 24 VAC Gas Valve
is energized and the Main Burner is ignited. This is a “dynamic”
gas pressure reading; while the water heater is firing.
8. Compare the actual supply gas pressure reading recorded
above to the required minimum/maximum values given in
Table 4 on page 13. Adjust supply gas pressure as necessary,
see the instructions that follow.

made to the manifold gas pressure. Attempts to adjust manifold
gas pressure during periods of low supply gas pressure could
result in overfiring when the supply gas pressure returns to
normal. See Supply Gas Pressure Adjustment on this page.
Supply gas pressure shall be measured while the water heater is
not firing (static pressure) and while the water heater is firing at
full capacity (dynamic pressure).
If the supply gas pressure to the water heater is not between
the required minimum and maximum values given in Table 4 on
page 13 adjust the supply gas regulator as necessary. Adjust the
supply gas regulator(s) per the regulator manufacturer’s instructions
to achieve the required “static” and “dynamic” supply gas pressure.
If necessary, adjust the manifold gas pressure as follows:
1. Follow the instructions for Initial Start Up on page 50 to
connect manometers to the supply and manifold gas pressure
taps and to start the water heater.
2. Remove the manifold gas pressure regulator cover screw,
see Figure 56 on this page 51.
Multiple Appliance Installations:
In multiple water heater installations or in installations where
the installed water heater(s) share a common gas supply main
with other gas fired appliances; the supply gas pressures shall
be measured at each water heater with all gas fired appliances
connected to a common main firing at full capacity.
3. Using a small flat tip screw driver turn the adjustment screw
clockwise to increase manifold gas pressure and counter
clockwise to decrease manifold gas pressure.
Note: Turn the manifold gas pressure adjustment screw
in small increments (no more than 1/4 turn) and allow the
manifold gas pressure to stabilize for several minutes before
making further adjustments.
On multiple water heater installations the supply gas line regulators
shall be adjusted to provide gas pressure to each water heater
within the minimum and maximum supply pressure requirements
listed in Table 4 on page 13 with all gas fired appliances connected
to a common gas main firing at full capacity.
4. Replace the gas pressure regulator cover screw.
5. Cycle the burner on and off several times to check operation.

the gas meter firing during this test.
2. Contact the gas supplier to determine the heating value, in
Btu per cubic foot, of the gas supply.
3. Connect a manometer to the manifold gas pressure tap.
Follow the instructions for Initial Start Up on page 50.
Breathing Hazard - Carbon Monoxide Gas
4. Start the water heater and ensure it is firing.
Under no circumstances should
the input exceed the rate shown
on the water heater’s rating label.
5. Check the manifold gas pressure, refer to Table 4 on page 13
for correct pressure. See Manifold Gas Pressure Adjustment
on page 51 if adjustment is necessary.
6. Locate the gas meter serving the water heater.
Overfiring could result in damage to
the water heater and sooting.
7. Time how long (in seconds) it takes for one cubic foot of gas
to be used while the water heater is firing with a stop watch.
Gas and carbon monoxide detectors
are available.
8. Use the formula below to “clock” the gas meter and determine
the actual firing rate of the water heater based on the heating
value (Btu per cubic foot) of the gas supply:
3600
T
Breathing carbon monoxide can cause brain damage or
death. Always read and understand instruction manual.
The water heaters covered by this manual are certified for use
without modification for altitudes up to 10,000 feet.

•
•
•
Most gas utility companies de-rate their gas for high altitudes,
making it unnecessary to install high altitude orifices.
x 1050 = 300,000 Btu/hr (87.9 kW)
For installations above 10,000 feet call the technical support
phone number listed on the back cover of this manual for further
technical assistance. Call the local gas or utility company to verify
Btu per cubic foot content before calling for technical assistance
and have that information available.
3600 = seconds in one hour.
T = time, in seconds, to burn one cubic foot of gas.
H = heating value of gas in Btu per cubic foot.
Btu/hr = actual firing rate of the water heater.
Note: 1050 Btu per cubic foot is a standard value for
natural gas. Standard propane gas Btu content is 2500
Btu per cubic foot. Btu values may change in certain
areas and at high elevations. Check with the local gas
utility company.
Note: The actual firing rate of the water heater must not exceed
the input rating on the water heater's rating label under any
circumstances.
Note: Due to the input rating reduction at high altitudes, the
output rating of the water heater is also reduced and should be
compensated for in the sizing of the equipment for applications.

Troubleshooting
Installation Checklist
Sequence of Operation
The list below represents some of the most critical installation
requirements that, when overlooked, often result in operational
problems, down time and needless parts replacement. This
is not a complete list. Before performing any troubleshooting
procedures use the list below to check for installation errors.
Costs to correct installation errors are not covered under the
limited warranty. Ensure all installation requirements and
instructions in this manual have been maintained and followed.
Read the Sequence of Operation below before attempting to
correct any operational problems. Refer to the Features And
Components section beginning on page 7 for the location of
various water heater components described below. See the
Sequence Of Operation Flow Chart on page 55 also.
1. When the control system is first powered, during boot up, it will
display water heater model information during initialization.
After a few moments the control system LCD which is part
of the UIM (user interface module) will display the default
screen known as the "Desktop" screen.
Water Heater Location
1. Ensure proper clearances to combustibles are maintained
and there is sufficient room to service the water heater. See
Clearances on page 11.
2. If the control system determines that the actual water
temperature inside the tank is below the programmed
Operating Set Point minus the Differential setting, a heating
cycle is activated.
2. Ensure the area is free of corrosive elements and flammable
materials. See the instructions on page 16.
Venting
3. The control system then performs selected diagnostic system
checks. This includes confirming the low gas pressure,
blocked exhaust, blocked intake and ECO (energy cut
out) switch contacts are closed. The Blower Prover Switch
contacts are confirmed open.
3. Ensure the intake air and/or vent (exhaust) piping is the correct
size for the installed length. See Venting Requirements on
page 22.
4. Ensure the maximum equivalent feet of pipe has not been
exceeded for the intake air and/or vent pipe. See Table 7 on
page 22.
4. If all diagnostic checks are successfully passed, the control
system energizes the Combustion Blower for pre-purge.
5. The control system must confirm the Blower Prover Switch
contacts close after the Combustion Blower is energized.
5. Ensure the maximum number of elbows has not been
exceeded in the intake air and/or vent pipe. See Venting
Requirements on page 22.
6. If the Blower Prover Switch contacts are confirmed closed
the control system energizes the Hot Surface Igniter for the
igniter warm-up period.
6. Ensure the balance plate and intake air screen are removed
from the intake air connection on the water heater when
installing the water heater in a Direct Vent configuration. See
Figure 17 on page 24.
7. The control system monitors the igniter current and must
sense a minimum of 2.0 AC amps for SUF 130 300 100/101
series and SUF 130 400 101 series only, and 3.1 AC amps
for SUF 130 400 104 series, and 500 101/104 series.
7. Ensure all exterior clearances for the intake air, vent and
concentric terminations are maintained. See Vertical
Termination Installation on page 24, Sidewall Termination
Installation on page 26 and Concentric Termination
Installation on page 27. These clearances and those cited by
local and national codes must be maintained.
8. If igniter amperage is confirmed at or above the required
minimum the control system energizes the 24 VAC Gas
Valve allowing gas to flow to the Main Burner.
9. The control system de-energizes the Hot Surface Igniter.
Gas Supply And Piping
10.The control system monitors the flame sensor to confirm a
flame is present at the Main Burner. If a flame is not verified
during the ignition trial period the control system will try for
ignition up to two more times. If flame can not be verified after
three trials for ignition, the control system will lock out and
display the “Ignition Failure” Fault message.
8. Ensure a supply gas regulator has been installed for each
water heater. See the requirements for a Supply Gas Regulator
on page 13 and Supply Gas Regulator on page 13.
9. Ensure the supply gas line to each water heater meets
the minimum supply gas line size requirements. See the
requirements for the Supply Gas Line on page 13 and the
installation instructions on page 37 and 38.
11.If a flame is verified, the control system will enter the
heating mode where it will continue heating the water until
the Operating Set Point is reached. At this point, the control
system will de-energize the 24 VAC Gas Valve and enter the
post-purge cycle (approximately 30 seconds).
Condensate Drain
10.Ensure the condensate drain is properly connected to the
exhaust elbow on the water heater with a water trap to
prevent vent gases from escaping into the installed space
and draining freely to a suitable floor drain. See Figure 9 on
page 16 and Condensate Drain Installation on page 36.
12.The Combustion Blower will run for the duration of the postpurge cycle to purge the water heater of all combustion
gases. When the post-purge cycle is complete, the blower is
de-energized and will coast to a stop.
Electrical Connections
11.Ensure the power supply connections to the water heater are
polarity correct. See the requirements for the Power Supply
on page 13 and Electrical Wiring on page 36.
13.The control system now enters the standby mode while
continuing to monitor the internal storage tank water
temperature and the state of other system devices. If the
tank temperature drops below the Operating Set Point minus
the Differential setting, the control will automatically return to
Step 2 and repeat the operating cycle.
12.Ensure the water heater is properly grounded. Flame sensing
requires an adequate earth ground. If the water heater is not
properly grounded it will cause Ignition Failure.

Momentary Ignition
Read and understand this instruction
manual and the safety messages
herein before installing, operating or
servicing this water heater.
Failure to follow these instructions and
safety messages could result in death
or serious injury.
This manual must remain with the
water heater.
CAUTION
This section of the manual is intended to be an aid in correcting
common operational problems, it is not all inclusive. The installer
may be able to observe and correct certain problems which
might arise when the water heater is first put into operation or
when it is re-fired after a prolonged shutdown. However, only
qualified service agents, as defined in Qualifications on page 6,
using appropriate test equipment, should perform any service
procedures on the water heater.
Burn Hazard
Note: Call the technical support phone number listed on the
back cover of this manual for further technical assistance or to
locate a qualified service agent in your area.
•
The combustion chamber and burner sleeve
and housing become very hot during operation.
•
Do not reach into the burner housing or
combustion chamber if the water heater
is still hot.
•
Allow the water heater to cool and always use
gloves when handling the main burner.
Installation Errors
Operational problems on new installations are often the result of
installation requirements that have been overlooked rather than
failed components. IE: A "Low Gas Pressure" Fault condition
is most often caused by low supply gas pressure rather than a
defective Low Gas Pressure switch. Rough starting and rough
operation are often caused by undersized supply gas lines and/
or the absence of a supply gas regulator at the water heater.
If the Main Burner ignites momentarily but does not sustain
ignition allow the water heater to try to ignite up to two more
times until control system locks out and the Ignition Failure Fault
message is displayed on the control system's LCD. If the water
heater is experiencing rough starts - see Rough Starting, Rough
Operation on this page. For momentary ignition problems without
rough starting check the following:
Prior to performing any operational checks inspect the water
heater installation to ensure all installation requirements and
instructions have been maintained and followed. See the
Installation Checklist on page 54.
• Incorrect manifold gas pressure - see Table 4 on page 13
and Manifold Gas Pressure Adjustment on page 51.
• Undersized supply gas line (low volume of supply gas) - see
Supply Gas Line on page 13.
• Supply gas regulator is not installed per installation
requirements (erratic gas supply volume/pressures) - see
Supply Gas Regulator on page 13.
• See the list of possible causes and things to check and

pressure relief valve must be
installed in the opening provided.
4. Open a nearby hot water faucet and let the water run until the
water is no longer hot.
5. Connect a hose to the water heater drain valve and terminate
it to an adequate drain.
Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut off, turn of
the Main Gas Shutoff valve. See Figure 52 on page 37.
6. Close the cold water inlet valve.
7. Open the water heater drain valve and allow all the water to
drain from the storage tank.
Water heater maintenance includes periodic tank flushing and
cleaning, and removal of lime scale. The water heater should
be inspected and adjusted to maintain proper combustion.
Refer to the following table. A periodic inspection of the venting

Manual Lime Scale Removal
Note: Contact your local distributor or call the parts department
phone number on the back cover of this manual to order a new
cleanout gasket. Have the new gasket available before removing
the cleanout cover.
12.Allow the water heater to complete several heating cycles to
ensure it is operating properly.
Filling the Water Heater
The cleanout opening is shown in Figure 59. To remove lime scale
manually through the cleanout opening proceed as follows:
See Filling The Water Heater on page 50.
Sediment Removal
1. Turn off the electrical supply to the water heater.
Waterborne impurities consist of the particles of soil and sand
which settle out and form a layer of sediment on the bottom of
the tank.
2. The water heater must be drained, see Draining And Flushing
on page 60, follow the instructions on how to drain the water
heater.
For convenience, sediment removal and lime scale removal
should be performed at the same time.
3. Remove outer cleanout access plate from lower side of the
water heater jacket.
Lime Scale Removal
4. Remove the cleanout cover from cleanout opening.
5. Remove lime, scale and/or sediment using care not to
damage the glass-lining.
When water is heated dissolved minerals in the water such as
calcium and magnesium carbonate (lime scale) become less
soluble. As the water temperature rises these minerals will
precipitate or “fall out” of solution.
6. Install a new cleanout gasket if required.
7. Reinstall the cleanout cover. Be sure to draw plate up tight
by tightening screws securely.
The amount of lime scale released from water is in direct
proportion to water temperature and usage. The higher the water
temperature or water usage, the more lime deposits are dropped
out of the water.
8. Close the water heater drain valve.
9. Fill the water heater - see Filling The Water Heater on page 50.
10.Turn on the electrical supply to place the water heater back
in operation. See Initial Start Up on page 50.
Water hardness also affects lime scale accumulation. With the
temperature and usage being the same, hard water will release
more lime scale than softer water.
11.Allow the water heater to complete several heating cycles to
ensure it is operating properly.
Lime scale reduces heating efficiency as it accumulates inside
a water heater. Heating transfer surfaces become coated with
lime scale deposits which increases fuel costs to operate the
water heater. Lime scale deposits can also cause rumbling
and pounding noises as air molecules trapped in the lime scale
escape when heated. Lime scale accumulation also reduces the
life span of water heaters. For these reasons a regular schedule
for deliming should be set up.
12.Check for water leakage.
13.Reinstall the cleanout access plate.
Chemical Lime Scale Removal
To dissolve and remove more stubborn lime scale deposits, UNLIME® Professional Delimer should be used.
UN-LIME® Professional Delimer is an easy to handle patented food
grade acid formulated specifically for lime scale removal from all
types of water using equipment. Hydrochloric base acids must not
be used to delime the water heaters covered in this manual.
The depth of lime accumulation in the bottom of the water
heater should be measured periodically. Inspect by removing
the cleanout cover once every 6 months at first. Deliming
maintenance should then be performed based on the time it
takes for 1 inch (2.5 cm) of lime to accumulate in the bottom of
the water heater.
Follow the instructions on the UN-LIME® to delime the water
heater.
Note: Call the parts department phone number on the back
cover of this manual to order UN-LIME® Professional Delimer.

Powered Anode Rods
Figure 60
To insure a long, trouble-free operating life, the water heaters
covered in this manual are factory equipped with a powered
anode system. The anode rods (2) are of a permanent design
and do not need replacing unless damaged. Inspection and
cleaning should be performed once a year.
If the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve on the water heater
weeps or discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal
expansion.
Note: Excessive water pressure is the most common cause of
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve leakage. Excessive water
system pressure is most often caused by "thermal expansion"
in a "closed system." See Thermal Expansion and Closed Water
Systems on page 14. The Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve is
not intended for the constant relief of thermal expansion.
Note: Follow the instructions to drain the water heater storage
tank on page 60 first. Remove the powered anodes from the
water heater by loosening the 3/4" NPT bushing that forms the
top of the anodes. Do not disassemble the retaining nut and
wire terminal from the top while installed in the water heater, the
anode's electrode may fall inside the tank. Remove the entire
anode rod from the water heater prior to inspection. Clean the
anode rods with a soft cloth and reinstall. Follow the instructions
for filling the water heater on page 50 when finished.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve leakage due to pressure build
up in a closed system that does not have a thermal expansion
tank installed is not covered under the limited warranty. Thermal
expansion tanks must be installed on all closed water systems.
Drain Valve and Access Panels
Do not plug the Temperature-Pressure Relief
Valve opening. This can cause property damage, serious injury or death.
The water heaters covered in this manual are equipped with
a drain valve, see Features And Components on page 7 for
location. The water heaters covered in this manual are also
equipped with a cleanout opening for sediment and lime scale
removal. See Figure 59 on page 61.
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve Test
Explosion Hazard
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
must comply with ANSI Z21.22CSA 4.4 and ASME code.
Burn hazard.
Hot water discharge.
Properly sized temperaturepressure relief valve must be
installed in opening provided.
Keep clear of TemperaturePressure Relief Valve
discharge outlet.
Can result in overheating and
excessive tank pressure.
Can cause serious injury or death.
It is recommended that the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve
should be checked to ensure that it is in operating condition
every 6 months.
Vent System
When checking the Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve operation,
make sure that (1) no one is in front of or around the outlet of the
Temperature-Pressure Relief Valve discharge line, and (2) that
the water discharge will not cause any property damage, as the
water may be extremely hot. Use care when operating valve as
the valve may be hot.
Examine the vent system once a year. Points of inspection are
as follows:
1. Check for obstructions and/or deterioration of the intake air
and/or vent piping and the intake air and vent terminations.
Replace immediately where needed.
To check the relief valve, lift the lever at the end of the valve
several times, see Figure 60. The valve should seat properly and
operate freely.
2. The debris screens in the intake air and vent terminations
should be should be cleaned of foreign material and soot.
See Figure 22 on page 26.
If after manually operating the valve, it fails to completely reset
and continues to release water, immediately close the cold water
inlet to the water heater and drain the water heater, see Draining
And Flushing on page 60. Replace the Temperature-Pressure
Relief Valve with a properly rated/sized new one, see TemperaturePressure Relief Valve on page 15 for instructions on replacement.
Note: Do not reach inside the vent hood when the heater
is in operation.
3. Check all vent system connections for leakage and repair or
reseal as necessary.

Limited Warranty
State Water Heaters, the warrantor, extends the following LIMITED WARRANTY to the owner of this water heater.
1.THE TANK
If the glass-lined tank in this water heater shall prove upon examination by the warrantor to have leaked due to natural corrosion from potable water therein,
during the first THREE years after initial installation, the warrantor will supply a replacement tank less burner and controls or a complete new State water heater
of equivalent size and current model at the warrantor's option. Some government agencies are requiring energy efficient standards for water heaters. In the
event regulations prohibit sale of a model of equivalent size and construction, State will provide a model which complies with the regulations of your area, in
which case the consumer will be charged the difference in price between the like replacement and the energy efficient model required. The warranty on the
replacement water heater will be limited to the unexpired term of the original warranty.
2.ALL OTHER PARTS
If within ONE year after initial installation of this water heater, any part or portion shall prove upon examination by the warrantor to be defective in material or
workmanship, the warrantor will repair or replace such part or portion at its option.
3.CONDITIONS AND EXCEPTIONS
This warranty shall apply only when the water heater is installed in accordance with local plumbing and building codes, ordinances and regulations, the printed
instructions provided with it and good industry practices. In addition, a temperature and pressure relief valve, certified by CSA and approved by the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers, must have been installed.
a.This warranty shall apply only when the water heater is:
(1) owned by the original purchaser;
(2) used at temperatures not exceeding the maximum setting of its thermostat;
(3) used at water pressure not exceeding the working pressure shown on the heater;
(4) used when operated free of the damaging effects of uncontrolled water hammer;
(5) used when filled with potable water, free to circulate at all times;
(6) used in a non-corrosive and non-contaminated atmosphere;
(7) used with factory approved anode(s) installed;
(8) in its original installation location;
(9) in the United States, its territories or possessions, and Canada;
(10) sized in accordance with proper sizing techniques for commercial water heaters;
(11) bearing a rating plate which has not been altered, defaced or removed except as required by the warrantor;
(12) fired at the factory rated input using the fuel stated on the rating plate;
(13) maintained in accordance with the instructions printed in the manual included with the water heater.
b.Any accident to the water heater, any misuse, abuse (including freezing) or alteration of it, any operation of it in a modified form, or any attempt
to repair tank leaks will void this warranty.
c.This warranty is void if a device acting as a backflow prevention device (check valves etc.) is installed in the cold water supply the heater is
connected to, unless an effective method of controlling thermal expansion is also installed at the heater(s) and operational at all times.
The temperature and pressure relief valve installed on the heater is not an acceptable method.
4.SERVICE AND REPAIR EXPENSES
Under the limited warranty the warrantor will provide only a replacement water heater or part thereof. The owner is responsible for all other costs. Such costs
may include but are not limited to:
a. Labor charges for service removal, repair or reinstallation of the water heater or any component part;
b. Shipping, delivery, handling, and administrative charges for forwarding the new heater or replacement part from the nearest distributor and returning
the claimed defective heater or part to such distributor.
c. All cost necessary or incidental for any material and/or permits required for installation of the replacement.
5.LIMITATIONS ON IMPLIED WARRANTIES
Implied warranties, including the warranty of merchantability imposed on the sale of this heater under state law are limited to one (1) year duration for the heater
or any of its parts. Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
6.CLAIM PROCEDURE
Any claim under the warranty should be initiated with the dealer who sold the water heater, or with any other dealer handling the warrantor’s
products. If this is not practicable, the owner should contact:
U.S. Customers
Canadian Customers

a. The warrantor will only honor replacement with identical or similar water heater or parts thereof which are manufactured or distributed by the warrantor.
b. Dealer replacements are made subject to in-warranty validation by warrantor.
7.DISCLAIMERS
NO OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTY HAS BEEN OR WILL BE MADE IN BEHALF OF THE WARRANTOR WITH RESPECT TO THE MERCHANTABILITY
OF THE HEATER OR THE INSTALLATION, OPERATION, REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE WATER HEATER. THE WARRANTOR SHALL NOT BE
RESPONSIBLE FOR WATER DAMAGE, LOSS OF USE OF THE UNIT, INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OR DAMAGE TO PERSONAL PROPERTY OR OTHER
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE. THE WARRANTOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE BY VIRTUE OF THIS WARRANTY OR OTHERWISE FOR DAMAGE TO ANY
PERSONS OR PROPERTY, WHETHER DIRECT OR INDIRECT, AND WHETHER ARISING IN CONTRACT OR TORT.
a. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of the incidental or consequential damage, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you.
b. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
Fill in the following for your own reference. Keep it. Registration is not a condition of warranty. The model and serial number are found on the heater’s rating plate.
