General Information continued-
A sacrificial anode is used to extend tank life. The removal of this anode, for
any reason, will nullify the warranty. In areas where water is unusually
active, an odor may occur at the hot water faucet due to a reaction between
the sacrificial anode and the impurities in the water. If this should happen, an
alternative anode may be purchased from the supplier that installed this
water heater. This will minimize the odor while protecting the tank.
Additionally, the water heater should be flushed with appropriate dissolvers
to eliminate any bacteria.
INSTALLATION
LOCATING THE WATER HEATER
WARNING
Water heaters are heat-producing appliances. To avoid damage or injury,
do not store materials against the water heater or vent-air intake system.
Use proper care to avoid unnecessary contact (especially by children) with
the water heater and vent-air intake components. UNDER NO
CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL FLAMMABLE MATERIALS, SUCH AS
GASOLINE OR PAINT THINNER BE USED OR STORED IN THE
VICINITY OF THIS WATER HEATER, VENT-AIR INTAKE SYSTEM OR IN
ANY LOCATION FROM WHICH FUMES COULD REACH THE WATER
HEATER OR VENT-AIR INTAKE SYSTEM.
DO NOT install the water heater in any location where gasoline or
flammable vapors are likely to be present.
Water Heaters in residential garages shall be installed so that all
burner(s) and burner ignition device(s) are located not less than 18
inches (46 cm) above the floor and shall be located, or protected, to
avoid physical damage. For other installations refer to local codes. In
the absence of local codes, the water heater shall be installed in

Installation (Locating The Water Heater) continued-
Note: For California installation this water heater must be braced,
anchored, or strapped to avoid falling or moving during an earthquake.
See instructions for correct installation procedures. Instructions may
be obtained from California Office of the State Architect, 400 P Street,
Sacramento, CA 95814.
Water heater corrosion and component failure can be caused by the heating
and breakdown of airborne chemical vapors. Examples of some typical
compounds that are potentially corrosive are: spray can propellants,
cleaning solvents, refrigerator and air conditioning refrigerants, swimming
pool chemicals, calcium and sodium chloride, waxes and process chemicals.
These materials are corrosive at very low concentration levels with little or
no odor to reveal their presence. NOTE: DAMAGE TO THE WATER
HEATER CAUSED BY EXPOSURE TO CORROSIVE VAPORS IS NOT
COVERED BY THE WARRANTY. DO NOT OPERATE THE WATER
HEATER IF EXPOSURE HAS OR WILL OCCUR. DO NOT STORE ANY
POTENTIALLY CORROSIVE COMPOUNDS IN THE VICINITY OF THE
WATER HEATER.
WARNING
Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas are heavier than air
and will remain at floor level if there is a leak. Basements,
crawl spaces, closets and areas below ground level will serve
as pockets for accumulation of leaking gas. Before lighting,
smell all around the appliance area for gas. Be sure to smell
next to the floor.
IF YOU SMELL GAS:
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any
telephone in your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
telephone. Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire
department.
DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE UNTIL THE LEAKAGE IS
CORRECTED!

Installation (Locating The Water Heater) continued-
WARNING
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIGHT ANY GAS APPLIANCE IF YOU ARE
NOT CERTAIN OF THE FOLLOWING:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas and natural gas have
an odorant added by the gas supplier that aids in the detection
of the gas.
Most people recognize this odor as a “sulfur” or “rotten egg”
smell.
Other conditions, such as “odorant fade” can cause the
odorant to diminish in intensity, or ”fade”, and not be as readily
detectable.
If you have a diminished sense of smell, or are in any way unsure
of the presence of gas, immediately contact your gas supplier
from a neighbor’s telephone.
Gas detectors are available. Contact your gas supplier, or
plumbing professional, for more information.
The water heater must be located close enough to the outside wall to keep
the venting distance within the maximum distance described in the
installation instructions. Note: The direct vent-air intake terminal must
be installed on a vertical wall. Read the venting section in this installation
instruction manual before locating the water heater.
This water heater must be located in an area where leakage of the tank or
water line connections and the combination temperature and pressure relief
valve 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, a
suitable drain pan, adequately drained, must be installed under the water
heater. The pan must not restrict access to the burner opening. The drain
pan must have a minimum length and width of at least 4 in. (10.2 cm)
greater than the diameter of the water heater and must not restrict proper
combustion air flow to the water heater. The drain pan, as described above,
can be purchased from your plumbing professional. The drain pan must be
piped to an adequate drain. The piping must be at least 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) in
diameter and pitched for proper drainage.
It is recommended that a minimum clearance of four (4) inches (10.2 cm) be
provided on the side of the water heater for servicing and maintenance of
the combination temperature and pressure relief valve.

WATER CONNECTIONS
Note: BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE INSTALLATION, CLOSE THE
MAIN WATER SUPPLY VALVE.
After shutting off the main water supply, open a faucet to relieve the water
line pressure to prevent any water from leaking out of the pipes while making
the water connections to the water heater. After the pressure has been
relieved, close the faucet. The COLD water inlet and HOT water outlet are
identified on the top of the water heater. The fittings at the cold water inlet
and hot water outlet are dielectric waterway fittings with 3/4” NPT male
thread. Make the proper plumbing connections between the water heater
and the plumbing system to the house. Install a shut-off valve in the cold
water supply line.
CAUTION
If sweat fittings are to be used, DO NOT apply heat to the nipples on top
of the water heater. Sweat the tubing to the adapter before fitting the
adapter to the water connections. It is imperative that heat is not applied
to the nipples containing a plastic liner.

WARNING
For protection against excessive temperatures and pressure, install
temperature and pressure protective equipment required by local codes,
but not less than a combination temperature and pressure relief valve
certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains
periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or materials as
meeting the requirements of the Standard for Relief Valves and
Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI
Z21.22 and the Standard CAN1-4.4 Temperature, Pressure,
Temperature and Pressure Relief Valves and Vacuum Relief Valves.
The combination temperature and pressure relief valve shall be marked
with a maximum set pressure not to exceed the maximum working
pressure of the water heater. The hourly BTU discharge capacity or the
rated steam relief capacity of the combination temperature and pressure
relief valve shall not be less than the input rating of the water heater.
Install the combination temperature and pressure relief valve into the
opening provided and marked for this purpose on the water heater.
Note: Some models may already be equipped or supplied with a
combination temperature and pressure relief valve. Verify that the
combination temperature and pressure relief valve complies with local
codes. If the combination temperature and pressure relief valve does
not comply with local codes, replace it with one that does. Follow the
installation instructions above on this page.
Install a discharge line, which terminates six (6) inches (15.2 cm) above
the floor, or any distance below the structural floor, to the outlet of the
combination temperature and pressure relief valve. DO NOT allow
water from the discharge line to contact any live electrical part. The
discharge line is to be installed to allow for complete drainage of both
the combination temperature and pressure relief valve and the discharge
line. The water from the discharge line must be directed to a suitable
drain or area that will not be damaged by water (Refer to page 5
“LOCATING THE WATER HEATER.” The discharge opening must not
be subjected to blockage or freezing. DO NOT thread, plug or cap the
discharge line.
It is recommended that a minimum clearance of four (4) inches (10.2
cm) be provided on the side of the water heater for servicing and
maintenance of the combination temperature and pressure relief valve.
Do not place a shutoff valve between the combination temperature and
pressure relief valve and the water heater, or on discharge pipes
between such valves or the atmosphere.

WARNING
FAILURE TO INSTALL AND MAINTAIN A NEW, LISTED 3/4” X 3/4”
TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE WILL RELEASE
THE MANUFACTURER FROM ANY CLAIM, WHICH MIGHT RESULT
FROM EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURES AND PRESSURES.
If this water heater is installed in a closed water supply system, such as the
one having a back-flow preventer in the cold water supply, provisions shall
be made to control thermal expansion. DO NOT operate this water heater in
a closed system without provisions for controlling thermal expansion. Your
water supplier or local plumbing inspector should be contacted on how to
control this situation.
After installation of the water lines, open the main water supply valve and fill
the water heater. While the water heater is filling, open several hot water
faucets to allow air to escape from the water system. When a steady stream
of water flows through the faucets, close them and check all water
connections for possible leaks. NEVER OPERATE THE WATER HEATER
WITHOUT FIRST BEING CERTAIN IT IS FILLED WITH WATER.
WARNING
Hydrogen gas can be produced in an operating water heater that
has not had water drawn from the tank for a long period of time
(generally two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is extremely
flammable. To prevent the possibility of injury under these
conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet to be open for
several minutes at the kitchen sink before you use any electrical
appliance, which is connected to the hot water system. If hydrogen
is present, there will be an unusual sound such as air escaping
through the pipes as hot water begins to flow. Do not smoke or
have open flame near the faucet at the time it is open.
This water heater can deliver scalding temperature water at any faucet in the
system. Be careful whenever using hot water to avoid scalding injury.
Certain appliances such as dishwashers and automatic clothing washers
may require increased temperature water. By setting the thermostat on this
water heater to obtain the increased temperature water required by these
appliances, you may create the potential for scald injury. To protect against
injury, you should install an ASSE approved mixing valve in the water
system. This valve will reduce point of discharge temperature by mixing cold
and hot water in branch supply lines. Such valves are available from the
manufacturer of this water heater or a local plumbing supplier. Please
consult with a plumbing professional.

Gas Connections
The gas supply lines must meet all requirements of the National Fuel Gas Code
(ANSI Z223.1-Latest Edition), or in Canada CAN/CGA B149.1 Natural Gas
Installation Code (Latest Edition) or CAN/CGA B149.2 Propane Installation Code
(Latest Edition).
The minimum permissible gas supply pressure for the purpose of input adjustment is
one (1.0) inch (0.25 kPa) water column above the operating manifold pressure. See
the rating plate and gas valve for the manifold pressure and gas type. The maximum
permissible gas supply pressure is fourteen (14.0) inches (3.5 kPa) water column for
natural gas and liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas.
1.
Connect this water heater only to the type of gas (Natural or Propane gas) as
shown on the rating plate. Use clean black iron pipe or equivalent material
approved by local codes and ordinances. (Dirt and scale from the pipe can enter
the gas valve and cause it to malfunction). The inlet gas line must have a
minimum length of three (3) inches (7.6 cm) drip leg (sediment trap) installed as
close to the water heater’s gas valve as possible. A ground joint union must be
installed as close to the water heater as possible in the gas supply line feeding
the water heater to permit servicing of the water heater. Compounds used on the
threaded joints of the gas piping must be resistant to the action of liquefied
petroleum gases/propane gas. DO NOT apply pipe dope to the gas valve inlet
and make certain that no pipe dope has become lodged in the inlet screen of the
gas valve. Extreme care must be taken to ensure no pipe dope enters the gas
valve. Avoid excessive torque when tightening the gas supply line to the gas
valve. Excessive torque may result in cracking of the gas valve housing and
could create a gas leak. When tightening gas supply line to L.P. control, it is
recommended to hold the inlet body of the control securely with an adequate
wrench. The suggested maximum torque is 31.5 ft. lbs. (4.4 kg-m).
WARNING
The manufacturer of this water heater will not be liable for any damage or injury
caused as a result of a cracked gas inlet as a result of excessive torque.
2.
This water heater and its gas connection must be leak tested before placing the
water heater in operation. Check for gas leaks with a soap and water solution
and a brush or a commercial leak detector fluid. NEVER USE A MATCH OR
OPEN FLAME FOR TESTING!
CAUTION
The water heater and individual shutoff valve must be disconnected from the gas
supply piping system during any pressure testing of the system at test pressures in
excess of 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa). The water heater must be isolated from the gas supply
piping system by closing its manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the
gas supply system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa). The
supply line must be capped when not connected to the water heater.
3.
While checking for leaks care must be taken to prevent solution from
contacting the electrical connections at the control. If electrical connections at
the control become wet, they must be thoroughly dried before attempting to
operate the water heater.

DANGER
Hotter water increases the risk of scald injury. Scalding may occur within five (5) seconds
at a temperature setting of 140° F (60° C). To protect against hot water injury, install an
ASSE approved mixing valve in the water system. This valve will reduce point of
discharge temperature by mixing cold and hot water in branch water lines. A licensed
plumbing professional or local plumbing authority should be consulted.
Note: This water heater is equipped with an energy cut out device to prevent
overheating. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut off, turn off the
manual gas control valve to the appliance and call a qualified service technician.
Note: Whenever the water heater is filled with cold water, condensate will form on the
cool tank surface and drops of water will fall on the hot burner and combustion chamber
surfaces producing a “sizzling” noise. Condensation is normal and does not indicate a
leak. It will disappear when the tank becomes heated.
Burner Flame Check
Cast Iron Burner: At the time of installation and at periodic intervals (not
more than 6 months), a visual check of the main burner and pilot flames
should be made to determine if they are burning properly. For ideal
operation, the gas and air must be properly proportioned. The proper airgas mixture is obtained by adjusting the air shutter on the mixer face of the
main burner (See Figure 19). To adjust for proper burning, loosen the air
shutter nut (if provided), rotate shutter to close the opening in the burner
then slowly rotate the shutter until the yellow tips disappear and the flame
becomes blue. On 75 gallon models fired on LPG or propane, adjust the air
shutter as described above until the yellow flame is minimized (note-the
burner flame may contain a mixture of yellow and blue). Tighten the air
shutter nut (if provided). Too much air will cause the flame to lift off the
burner ports and create noisy operation. Too little air will result in soot
formation. The main burner flame should light smoothly from the pilot.
Steel Burner: These models are equipped with self adjusting air mixture
and do not have an adjustable air shutter (See Figure 19). At periodic
intervals a visual check of the main burner and pilot flames should be made
to determine if they are burning properly. The main burner flame should light
smoothly from the pilot.

IMPORTANT
The water heater should be inspected at a minimum annually by a
qualified service technician for damaged components and/or joints
not sealed. DO NOT operate this water heater if any part is found
damaged or if any joint is found not sealed.
A qualified service technician should perform the following maintenance at
the minimum periodic intervals suggested below. In some installations the
maintenance interval may be more frequent depending on upon the amount
of use and the operating conditions of the water heater. Regular inspection
and maintenance of the water heater and vent-air intake system will help to
insure safe and reliable operation.
1. Annually check the operation of the thermostat.
2. The flow of combustion and ventilation air MUST NOT be restricted.
Annually inspect the direct vent-air intake terminal to insure it is not
blocked or damaged. Clear the direct vent-air intake terminal openings
of any dirt, dust, or other restrictions. WARNING! Certain areas of the
direct vent-air intake terminal are HOT.
3. Annually inspect the vent-air intake system to insure that all components
are securely fastened and all joints and seams are properly sealed.
4. At all times keep the water heater area clear and free from combustible
materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
5. Bi-annually conduct a visual check of the main and pilot burner flames to
determine that they are burning properly. See the information described
previously under “BURNER FLAME CHECKS” in this Installation and
Operating Instruction Manual. If sooting or other burner anomalies are
evident, shut down the water heater by turning off the gas per the
instructions listed in this manual or as listed on the water heater.
34
Internet Version for Reference Only
Maintenance (continued)-
6. Annually remove the inner door and main burner assembly to clean
orifices and related parts of any dirt or other foreign material. Inspect
the burner ports for obstructions or debris and clean with a wire brush as
needed. Wire brush and/or vacuum clean the combustion chamber as
needed to remove scale deposits and debris. Inspect the inner door
gasket for wear and tear and replace if necessary. NOTE: It is
imperative for proper operation of the water heater that the inner
door be properly sealed.
7. At least once a year, check the combination temperature and pressure
relief valve to insure that the valve has not become encrusted with lime.
Lift the lever at the lever at the top of the valve several times until the
valve seats properly without leaking and operates freely.
WARNING
When lifting lever of the combination temperature and pressure
relief valve, hot water will be released under pressure. Be careful
that any released water does not result in bodily injury or property
damage.
8. Monthly, drain off a gallon of water to remove silt and sediment by using
the water heater’s drain valve.
WARNING! THIS WATER MAY BE HOT.
9. If the combination temperature and pressure relief valve on the
appliance discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal expansion
in a closed water supply system. Contact the water supplier or local
plumbing inspector on how to correct this situation. Do not plug the
combination temperature and pressure relief valve outlet.
10. A combination sacrificial anode rod/hot water outlet nipple has been
installed to extend tank life. The anode rod should be inspected
periodically (every two years) and replaced when necessary to prolong
tank life. Contact the plumbing professional who installed the water
heater or the manufacturer listed on the rating plate for anode
replacement information. The use of a water softener may increase the
speed of anode consumption. More frequent inspection of the anode is
needed when using softened (or phosphate treated) water.
