This appliance is a gas-fired direct vent modulating cast aluminum hot water boiler. A revolutionary
cast aluminum monoblock heat exchanger means
better heat transfer and thermal storage than similarly sized cast iron boilers, which results in higher
efficiency. The heating system water absorbs large
amounts of heat from the cast aluminum heat exchanger, cooling the flue gases and causing condensation. Sealed combustion, premix gas burner,
and low flame temperature means drastically reduced CO and NOx emissions, which contribute to
a cleaner and healthier environment.

This appliance, unlike normal residential atmospheric and induced draft units, takes its combustion air directly from the outdoors (sealed combustion) and does not compete with building occupants
for fresh air. Sealed combustion (also known as
“direct vent”) is the safest and best way to obtain
plenty of clean combustion air. The forced draft fan
draws in the outside combustion air to mix with gas,
which flows into the pre-mix burner and combusts.
The fan then forces the resulting flue gases from
the boiler unit and provides a positive removal of
the flue gases from the building through inexpensive and readily available PVC and CPVC pipes.
Keep this manual near boiler
and retain for future reference.

ings above are for sea level applications. The boiler
automatically derates input at a rate of 2% for every
1000 feet above an elevation of 2000 feet (see Table
2). The boiler will also derate relative to the calorific
value of the gas being used. Use the formula specified in “Measure The Natural Gas Input Rate” in Section VII of the Control Manual and Operating Instructions (P/N# 240006104) to determine the proper rate
due to derated gas. No alterations to the boiler are
required for altitudes above sea level.
The Heating Capacity indicates the amount of heat
available after subtracting the losses up the stack.
Most of this heat is available to heat water. A small
portion is heat loss from the jacket and surfaces of
the boiler, and it is assumed that this heat stays in
the structure. The Net I=B=R Rating represents the
portion of the remaining heat that can be applied
to heat the radiation or terminal units (i.e., finned
tube baseboard, cast iron radiators, radiant floor,
etc.) The difference between the Heating Capacity
and the Net I=B=R Rating, called the piping and
pickup allowance, establishes a reserve for heating
the volume of water in the system and offsetting
heat losses from the piping. The Net I=B=R Ratings shown are based on a piping and pickup factor
of 1.15 in accordance with the I=B=R Standard as
published by the Hydronics Institute. The Net I=B=R
Rating of the boiler selected should be greater than
or equal to the calculated peak heating load (heat
loss) for the building or area(s) served by the boiler
and associated hot water heating systems. The
manufacturer should be consulted before selecting
a boiler for installations having unusual piping and
pickup requirements.
These low pressure gas-fired hot water boilers are
design certified by CSA International, for use with
natural and propane gases. The boilers are constructed and hydrostatically tested for a maximum
working pressure of 50 PSIG (pounds per square
inch gauge) in accordance with ASME (American
Society of Mechanical Engineers) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Section IV Standards for heating
boilers.
The Boilers are certified in accordance with ANSI
(American National Standards Institute) Z21.13
standards as gas-fired, direct vent, condensing,
hot water boilers.

CONDENSATE DRAIN REQUIREMENTS
At the rear of the unit a ½” PVC pipe nipple with
NPT threads is provided for the attachment of the
condensate drain line. Attach the ½” PVC tee in
the parts bag to act as a vent as shown. Attach ½”
PVC from this point to either a drain or an external condensate pump (not furnished). If the drain
level is above the condensate trap, a condensate
pump must be used. The condensate pump must
be designed for a flue gas condensate application.
The condensate drain line must be pitched down to
the floor at a minimum of ¼” per foot and must be
routed within the conditioned space to avoid freezing of condensate and blockage of the drain line. If
the unit will be started immediately upon completion of installation, prime trap by filling with water
until water is seen at the vent.

venting system properly vents when tested as
outlined above, return doors, windows, exhaust
fans and any other gas-burning appliance to
their previous condition of use.
7. Any improper operation of the common venting system should be corrected so the installation conforms with the National Fuel Code,
NFPA-54/ANSI -Z223.1-latest revision, or section 5 of CSA-B149 for Canadian standards.
When resizing any portion of the common venting system, the common venting system should
be resized to approach the minimum size as determined using the appropriate tables in part 11
in the National Fuel Gas Code, NFPA-54/ANSIZ223.1-latest revision, or section 5 of CSA-B149
for Canadian standards.
1. Seal any unused openings in the common
venting system.
2. Visually inspect the venting system for proper
size and horizontal pitch and determine there is
no blockage or restrictions, leakage, corrosion
and other deficiencies which could cause an unsafe condition.
3. When it is practical, close all building doors
and windows and all doors between the space

Section IV. The manufacturer is not responsible for
any water damage.
SUPPLY AND RETURN LINES
The packaged boiler unit is set up to receive 1¼”
NPT return piping from the rear of the unit with an
option for left or right return connections. 1¼” NPT
supply piping exits the boiler jacket at the top of the
unit.
FILLING CONDENSATE TRAP WITH WATER
IMPORTANT: On initial start up the condensate
trap must be manually filled with water.
The following are the steps required to initially fill
the condensate trap for start up, these steps are
only required at the initial start up or if maintenance
requires draining of the condensate trap:
1. Pour about 1 cup of cold tap water into the
vent drain line.
2. Excess water should go through the overflow
and out through the condensate drain line. Verify proper operation of the drain line (or external
condensate pump if used).
NOTE: Circulator pump and isolation valves are furnished
within a carton inside the boiler cabinet and can be installed
at the installer preferred location.
CONDENSATE DRAIN PIPING
3. Reinstall the vent drain line.
The condensate trap is integral to the boiler.
Provide ½” pipe and fittings for PVC condensate
drain line. Condensate drain line to be pitched
down to floor drain at a minimum of ¼” per foot.
The ½” diameter schedule 40 PVC condensate
drain piping and pipe fittings must conform to ANSI
standards and ASTM D1785. Schedule 40 PVC cement and primer must conform to ASTM D2564.
In Canada, use CSA or ULC certified schedule 40
PVC drain pipe and cement.
A condensate pump with a reservoir (not furnished)
may be used to remove condensate to a drain line
(sanitary line) above boiler if a floor drain is not
available or is inaccessible.
CHILLED WATER PIPING
The boiler, when used in connection with a refrigeration system, must be installed so the chiller medium is piped in parallel with the boiler with appropriate valves to prevent the chilled medium from
entering the boiler.
The boiler piping system of a hot water boiler connected to heating coils located in air handling units
where they may be exposed to refrigerated air circulation must be equipped with flow control valves
or other automatic means to prevent gravity circulation of the boiler water during cooling cycle.
VIII - COMBUSTION AIR AND VENT PIPE
CONNECTIONS AND TERMINATION
For boilers connected to gas vents or chimneys,
vent installations shall be in accordance with Part
7, Venting of Equipment, of the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1-latest revision, CSA-B149.1
and B149.2, and applicable provisions of the local
building codes.
These boilers require a dedicated direct vent system. All air for combustion is taken directly from
outdoors through the combustion air intake pipe.
All flue products are discharged to the outdoors
through the vent pipe. Insulate lengths of combustion pipe in unconditioned areas.
1. See Figures 1 through 5 for combustion air
and vent pipe roof and sidewall termination (roof
termination is preferred). Combustion air and
vent pipes must terminate together in same atmospheric pressure zone as shown. Construction through which vent and air intake pipes may
be installed is a maximum 24” and a minimum
¼” thickness.
Provisions for combustion and ventilation air must
be in accordance with Section 5.3, Air For Combustion and Ventilation, of the National Fuel Gas
Code, ANSI Z223.1-latest revision, CSA-B149.1
and B149.2, or applicable provisions of the local
building code.

2. Combustion air and vent pipe fittings must
conform to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards and American Society
for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards
D1784 (schedule-40 CPVC), D1785 (schedule40 PVC), D2665 (PVC-DWV), D2241 (SDR-21
and SDR-26 PVC), D2661 (ABS-DWV), or F628
(schedule-40 ABS). Pipe cement and primer
must conform to ASTM standards D2564 (PVC)
or D2235 (ABS).
1. Combustion air piping to be pitched back to
boiler at minimum ¼” per foot from vent terminals
so that all moisture in vent piping drains to boiler.
Pipes must be pitched continuously with no sags
or low spots where moisture can accumulate and
block the flow of flue gas. Combustion air and
vent pipes must be airtight and watertight.
2. Consideration for the following should be used
when determining an appropriate location for termination of combustion air and vent piping:
In Canada construct all combustion air and vent
pipes for this unit of CSA or ULC certified schedule-40 CPVC, schedule-40 PVC, PVC-DWV or
ABS-DWV pipe and pipe cement. SDR pipe is
NOT approved in Canada.
3. Combustion air and vent pipe connections on
boiler are 2” but must increase to 3”. Due to potential for flue gas temperatures above 155°F,
the first 30” of supplied vent pipe is CPVC while
the remaining vent pipe can be PVC. Any replacement of the first 30” of vent pipe must be
made with CPVC.
NOTE: The exhaust transition from 2” pipe to 3” pipe must
be made in a vertical run. Transition pieces are not included. (See Figure 8 for details.)

7. After pipes have been cut and pre-assembled, apply cement primer to pipe fitting socket
and end of pipe to insertion mark. Quickly apply
approved cement to end of pipe and fitting socket (over primer). Apply cement in light, uniform
coat on the inside of socket to prevent buildup of
excess cement. Apply second coat.
If multiple terminations are used, there must be
a minimum of 12” between the exhaust of one
termination and the air intake of the next termination. See Figures 1-3 for illustrations.
NOTE: Primer and cement will discolor jacket. Take precautions to protect jacket while cementing vent pipe.
INSTALLATION
IMPORTANT: When transitioning from CPVC to
PVC it is recommended to use Weld-On CPVC 724
or other cement approved for CPVC and PVC.
8. While cement is still wet, insert pipe into socket with a ¼ turn twist. Be sure pipe is fully inserted into fitting socket.
1. Attach combustion air intake piping to supplied 2” PVC Intake Connector. Attach vent piping to furnished 2” CPVC vent pipe.
9. Wipe excess cement from joint. A continuous
bead of cement will be visible around perimeter
of a properly made joint.
NOTE: All pipe joints are to be water tight.
10. Handle pipe joint carefully until cement sets.
2. Working from the boiler to the outside, cut
pipe to required length(s).
11. Support combustion air and vent piping a
minimum of every 5’ using pre-formed metal
hanging straps. Support combustion air and
vent piping so no weight is resting on the boiler
jacket. Do not rigidly support pipes. Allow movement due to expansion and contraction.
3. Deburr inside and outside of pipe.
4. Chamfer outside edge of pipe for better distribution of primer and cement.
12. Slope combustion air and vent pipes toward
boiler a minimum of ¼” per linear foot with no
sags between hangers.
5. Clean and dry all surfaces to be joined.
6. Check dry fit of pipe and mark insertion depth
on pipe.
13. Use appropriate methods to seal openings where vent and combustion air pipes pass
through roof or side wall.
NOTE: It is recommended that all pipes be cut, prepared, and
pre-assembled before permanently cementing any joint.

normal (blue flame) and infrared conditions.
!
MODULATING BOILER CONTROL
This appliance incorporates an integrated modulating control that senses the load necessary to heat
a structure and therefore uses less fuel than a conventional fixed firing rate boiler when there is a lower than peak demand for heat. The control senses
the supply water, return water, and outside air temperatures and calculates the load on the system. It
then adjusts the firing rate to deliver the amount of
heat that is needed at that particular time.
WARNING
!
The NTC sensors used with this appliance for measuring supply water, return water, and outside air
temperature are specially configured to operate
with the modulating boiler control.
The burner in this unit contains ceramic fibers which can be converted to a cancercausing substance called cristobalite in very
high temperature applications. When removing the burner, avoid breathing dust by using
a NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational
Safety and Health) certified dust respirator
and wear long-sleeved, loose fitting clothing,
gloves, and eye protection to avoid contact
with skin and eyes. In case of contact with
skin or eyes, wash or irrigate affected area
immediately, then wash potentially contaminated clothing separately and rinse clothes
washer thoroughly before reusing. For additional information, see the NIOSH homepage at www.cdc.gov/niosh/homepage.html.

sense flame during operation. The DSI is a durable,
reliable component that resists breakage due to
handling or inadvertent impact with other objects.
MANUAL RESET LOW WATER CUT OFF
This appliance employs a factory installed integral
low water cut off (LWCO) that has to be manually
reset if there is a low water condition. The LWCO
senses water through a probe at the top of the boiler
that sends a signal through the water to ground. If the
signal is not sensed through the ground, the LWCO
enters a lockout mode that disables the appliance.
If the LWCO is in normal mode a red indicator light
is illuminated on the LWCO panel in the boiler. During a low water condition, the red light goes out and
the LWCO and control reset buttons on the display
panel must be depressed to reset the LWCO.
NORMALLY CLOSED LWCO SWITCH
This switch is normally closed and spring loaded so
that, when depressed, it opens, and closes again
when pressure is removed. The switch is used as
the manual reset for the LWCO. When tripped the
LWCO will remain in lockout until the water level
reaches the probe and the switch is depressed to
an open state and then released to a closed state,
which sends a signal to the LWCO to resume normal operation. The boiler control reset button must
then be pressed to reset from a low water condition. The LWCO switch and control reset button are
located on the display panel of the boiler.
HIGH LIMIT AQUASTAT CONTROL
The high limit aquastat control is a redundant safety
limit control that determines the maximum boiler water temperature and also provides a means for protecting the boiler and heating system from unsafe
operating conditions which could damage the boiler.
The aquastat is mounted in the ½” NPT control well
and ¾” x ½” bushing on the top of the front boiler
section at the hot water outlet. The aquastat is tied
in with the boiler control and is factory set at 200°F
water temperature. The high limit setpoint is field adjustable and may be set anywhere between 100°F
and 200°F, with the maximum high limit setpoint not
exceeding 200°F. The field high limit setpoint adjustment for each installation depends on heating
system requirements. The aquastat automatically
resets when the boiler water temperature decreases
ten degrees below the high limit setpoint value.
CASTING TEMPERATURE SAFETY SWITCH
In the event of lack of or loss of water in the boiler,
the casting temperature safety switch (230°F setpoint) installed on the top of the aluminum boiler section behind the supply piping shuts off the
boiler by shutting off power to the boiler control
and causes a failure code to be displayed on the
digital readout. This fault requires manual reset of
the casting temperature safety switch to restart the
boiler and the reset to be pressed on the user interface panel. Verify that the boiler is properly filled
with water before resetting this switch.
!
WARNING
!
Never run cold water into a hot, empty boiler.
CIRCULATOR PUMP
Every forced hot water system requires at least one
circulating pump. The circulating pump imparts the
necessary energy to move water through the closed
loop supply and return piping systems, terminal
heating equipment (finned tube radiators, etc.) and
back through the boiler for reheating. To provide the
required hot water flow rates, the circulator pump
must be properly sized to overcome frictional losses
(usually measured in feet of water, also referred to
as “pump head loss”) of the supply and return piping
systems and boiler. The circulator pump is furnished
in a carton within the boiler cabinet. The circulator(s)
should always be located on the downstream
(“pumping away”) side of the expansion tank.
AIR PROVING BLOCKED VENT
SAFETY ASSEMBLY
The air proving blocked vent safety assembly incorporates two pressure switches that are wired in series to discontinue operation of the appliance if there
is a problem with the blower or venting system. The

blower and functions as an air proving switch. The
17
normally closed switch opens if there is a blockage
in the combustion air intake or exhaust vent pipes.
DRAIN VALVE
The manual drain valve provides a means of draining the water in the heating system, including the
boiler and hot water supply and return piping systems installed above the drain valve. This drain
valve is installed in the return piping at the bottom
front of the boiler section. Any piping installed below
the elevation of this drain valve will require additional
drain valves to be installed at low points in the piping
systems in order to drain the entire system.
ASME RATED PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE
Each boiler must have a properly sized and installed American Society of Mechanical Engineers
rated pressure relief valve. Water expands as it is
heated by the burner/boiler sections. If there is no
place for the water to expand its volume, (i.e., a
properly sized and properly functioning expansion
tank) pressure on the inside of the boiler and heating system will increase. The furnished relief valve
will automatically open at 30 psig pressure to relieve the strain on the boiler and heating system
from the increasing pressure. The pressure relief
valve discharge must be piped with the same size
pipe as the valve discharge opening to an open
drain, tub or sink, or other suitable drainage point
not subject to freezing, in accordance with ASME
specifications. Failure to provide the pressure relief
valve with piping as herein described may cause
water damage and/or serious bodily injury. The
boiler manufacturer is not responsible for any water
damage or personal injury.
EXTERNAL CONDENSATE PUMP (OPTIONAL)
For installations where there is no floor drain or other appropriate drainage receptacle available to receive condensate from the boiler, an external float
activated condensate pump with integral sump is
required. The condensate pump can be piped to
a remote tie in point to a sanitary sewer system.
For this application, the boiler must be installed so
that proper pitch of piping to the external condensate reservoir (sump) can be accomplished. Use
wood frame or blocks to raise boiler as required for
proper installation.
CONCENTRIC VENT/AIR INTAKE
TERMINATION (OPTIONAL)
The optional concentric vent/air intake termination utilizes a single opening per each appliance
through the wall or roof of a structure.
XII - MAINTENANCE AND CLEANING
NOTE: Maintenance as outlined below can be performed
by the owner unless otherwise noted.
The acidic nature of flue gases condensing on the
aluminum boiler sections will cause the formation
of aluminum oxide. This oxide formation is normal,
is generally uniform throughout the boiler sections,
and represents a negligible mass of aluminum
that is consumed by oxidation during the life of the
boiler. If left unchecked, this buildup may eventually cause blockage of the flue gas passages in the
boiler sections, reducing efficiency, and ultimately
shutting down the boiler due to lack of combustion
air flow.
Regular service and maintenance by a qualified service agency must be performed at least
once every 12 months to assure safe, trouble
free operation and maximum efficiency.
BEGINNING OF EACH HEATING SEASON
1. Schedule an annual service call by a qualified
service agency which includes:

vapors and liquids.
2. If heating system is to remain out of service
during freezing weather and does not contain
antifreeze, drain system completely. If boiler will
be exposed to freezing temperatures, drain condensate lines. Otherwise, do not drain system
or boiler.
3. Circulator pump and blower motor furnished
with boiler are permanently lubricated from the
factory and require no further lubrication. Additional or non-factory supplied pumps and/or motors should be lubricated according to the pump
and/or motor manufacturer’s instruction.
