• High Output Cold Water Dip Tube
• Installation Manual and Warranty
• User’s Information Manual
B. How the Heater Operates
Modulating Condensing Technology is an intelligent system
that delivers highly efficient water heating, maximizing
efficiency by measuring the data parameters of your water
heating system. Some of its features are:
Stainless Steel Water Storage Tank
The stainless steel water storage tank has a combustion
chamber submerged into the tank water. When the water heater
is fired, combustion gases heat the combustion chamber walls,
transferring heat directly into the surrounding water. These hot
gases are blown into secondary heat exchanger coils, where
more heat from these gases is transferred into the water.
Modulating Combustion System
The control monitors the water heating system
and
temperatures, regulating burner output during operation to
match system demand. This increase in efficiency allows for
substantial fuel savings.
High Output Cold Water Dip Tube
(Optional - Shipped with Heater)
When installed, the High Output Cold Water Dip Tube increases
hot water draw and recovery time by 20% and decreases thermal
efficiency by a small amount.
Gas Valve
The gas valve senses suction from the blower, allowing gas to
flow only if the gas valve is energized and combustion air is
flowing.
Tank Sensor
This sensor monitors system water temperature. The control
module adjusts burner firing rate so the outlet water temperature
meets the set point.
Control
The integrated control system monitors water temperature and
adjusts fan speed to regulate the heater’s energy output. This
allows the unit to deliver the required amount of heated energy
and nothing more.
LP-441 Rev. 2.24.15
Burner
Constructed of high grade stainless steel, the burner uses premixed air and gas and provides a wide range of firing rates.
Condensate System with Built-In Neutralizing Cartridge
This is a condensing high efficiency water heater with a
condensate removal system. Condensate is nothing more
than water vapor derived from combustion products, similar
to that of an automobile when it is initially started. It is very
important that the condensate line slopes away from the
water heater and down to a suitable inside drain.
The Built-In Neutralizing Cartridge is filled with marble chips
that neutralize the condensate before it flows into a local
drain. The marble chips dissolve over time. The cartridge is
designed to be easily removed, refilled with marble chips, and
reinstalled.
If the condensate outlet on the heater is lower than the drain,
us a condensate removal pump (Part # 554200, available from
HTP). In addition, local authorities may require an additional
condensate neutralizer to neutralize the condensate.
It is also very important not to expose the condensate line to
freezing temperatures or any type of blockage. Plastic tubing
must be the only material used for the condensate line. Steel,
brass, copper, or other materials will be subject to corrosion
or deterioration. A second vent may be necessary to prevent
condensate line vacuum lock on a long horizontal run. Also,
an increase in pipe size may be necessary to allow condensate
to drain properly. Support of the condensate line may be
necessary to avoid blockage of the condensate flow.
Spark Ignition
The burner flame is ignited by applying high voltage to the
system spark electrode. This causes a spark from electrode to
ground.
C. Optional Equipment
Optional equipment available from HTP (and Part #):
• 3” Stainless Steel Outside Vent Termination Kit (V1000)
• 2” PVC Concentric Vent Kit (KGAVT0501CVT)
• 3” PVC Concentric Vent Kit (KGAVT0601CVT)
• 3” Polypro Vent Kit (8400P-001)
• 3” Polypro Pipe
(33’ length # 8400P-002, 49.5’ length # 8400P-003)
• Outdoor Sensor (7250P-319)
• Condensate Neutralizer Replacement (7700P-026)
Part 3 - Prepare the Water Heater
Remove all sides of the shipping crate to allow the heater to
be moved into its installation location.
COLD WEATHER HANDLING - If the water heater has
been stored in a very cold location (BELOW 0oF) before
installation, handle with care until the components come to
room temperature. Failure to do so could result in damage to
the water heater.
Carefully consider installation when determining heater
location. Please read the entire manual before attempting
installation. Failure to properly take factors such as heater
venting, piping, condensate removal, and wiring into account
before installation could result in wasted time, money, and
possible property damage and personal injury.
7
A. Locating the Water Heater
This water heater is certified for indoor use only. DO NOT
INSTALL OUTDOORS. Outdoor installations ARE NOT
covered by warranty. Failure to install the water heater
indoors could result in property damage, severe personal
injury, or death.
Incorrect ambient conditions can lead to damage to the
heating system and put safe operation at risk. Ensure that
the installation location adheres to the information included
in this manual. Failure to do so could result in property
damage, serious personal injury, or death. Failure of heater
or components due to incorrect operating conditions IS NOT
covered by product warranty.
1. Installation Area (Mechanical Room) Operating Conditions
• Ensure ambient temperatures are higher than 32oF /
0oC and lower than 104oF / 40oC
• Prevent the air from becoming contaminated by the
products, places, and conditions listed in this manual
• Avoid continuously high levels of humidity
• Never close existing ventilation openings
• Ensure a minimum 1” clearance around hot water and
exhaust vent pipes
• NOTE: To prevent condensing in the fan, it is
recommended to avoid prolonged exposure to
temperatures below 45oF
This water heater has a condensate disposal system that
may freeze if exposed to sustained temperatures below 32oF.
Precautions should be taken to protect the condensate trap
and drain lines from sustained freezing conditions. Failure
to take precautions could result in property damage, severe
personal injury, or death.
2. Check for nearby connections to:
• System water piping
• Venting connections
• Gas supply piping
• Electrical power
• Condensate drain
3. Check area around heater. Remove any combustible
materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids.
Failure to keep the water heater area clear and free of
combustible materials, liquids, and vapors can result in
substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or
death.
The service life of the water heater’s exposed metallic surfaces,
such as the casing, as well as internal surfaces, such as the heat
exchanger, are directly influenced by proximity to damp and
salty marine environments. In such areas higher concentration
levels of chlorides from sea spray coupled with relative humidity
can lead to degradation of water heater components. In these
environments, heaters must not be installed using direct vent
systems which draw outdoor air for combustion. Such heaters
must be installed using room air for combustion. Indoor air
will have a much lower relative humidity, and hence potential
corrosion will be minimized.
High heat sources (generating heat 100oF / 37oC or greater,
such as boiler flue pipes, space heaters, etc.) may damage
plastic components of the water heater as well as plastic vent
pipe materials. Such damages ARE NOT covered by warranty. It
is recommended to keep a minimum clearance of 8” from high
heat sources. Observe heat source manufacturer instructions,
as well as local, state, provincial, and national codes, laws,
regulations, and ordinances when installing this water heater
and related components near high heat sources.
Locate the water heater where any leakage from the relief valve,
related piping, tank, or connections will not result in damage
to surrounding areas or lower floors of the building. The water
heater should be located near a floor drain or installed in a drain
pan. Leakage damages ARE NOT covered by warranty.
Failure of the water heater or components due to incorrect
operating conditions IS NOT covered by product warranty.
4. Gas control system components must be protected from
dripping water during operation and service.
5. If the heater is to replace an existing heater, check for and
correct any existing system problems, such as:
• System leaks
• Location that could cause the system and heater to
freeze and leak
• Incorrectly sized expansion tank
6. Clean and flush system when reinstalling a heater.
NOTE: When installing in a zero clearance location, it may
not be possible to read or view some product labeling. It is
recommended to make note of the heater model and serial
number.
B. Leveling
In order for the condensate to properly flow out of the collection
system, the area where you locate the heater must be level.
Location must also fully support the weight of the filled water
heater.
LP-441 Rev. 2.24.15
8
C. Clearances for Service Access
All water heaters eventually leak. It is recommended to install
a catch pan beneath the water heater. This catch pan should be
sized with a maximum depth of 2”, and a minimum diameter 2”
greater than the diameter of the water heater. The catch pan
should empty into an open drain line. This drain line should be
3/4” ID minimum, piped to an open drain. Failure to follow these
instructions could result in property damage. Such damages
ARE NOT covered by product warranty.
D. Residential Garage Installation
Precautions
If the heater is located in a residential garage, per ANSI Z223.1:
• Install the water heater burner and ignition devices a
minimum of 18” above the floor of the garage. This will
ensure the burner and ignition devices are well off the
floor.
• When raising the water heater ensure the entire
bottom and fully filled weight of the water heater are
fully supported.
• Locate or protect the water heater so it cannot be
damaged by a moving vehicle.
E. Exhaust Vent and Intake Pipe
The heater is rated ANSI Z21.10.3 Category IV (pressurized
vent, likely to form condensate in the vent) and requires a
special vent system designed for pressurized venting.
NOTE: The venting options described here (and further
detailed in the Venting section, this manual) are the lone
venting options approved for this water heater. Failure
to vent the water heater in accordance with the provided
venting instructions will void the warranty.
Failure to vent the water heater properly will result in serious
personal injury or death.
Do not attempt to vent this water heater by any means other
than those described in this manual. Doing so will void the
warranty and may result in severe personal injury or death.
Vents must be properly supported. Heater exhaust and
intake connections are not designed to carry heavy weight.
Vent support brackets must be within 1’ of the heater and
the balance at 4’ intervals. Heater must be readily accessible
for visual inspection for first 3’ from the water heater. Failure
to properly support vents could result in property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.
The exhaust discharged by this water heater may be very hot.
Avoid touching or other direct contact with the exhaust gases

2. Indoor Combustion Air in Confined or Unconfined Space
This heater requires fresh, uncontaminated air for safe
operation and must be installed in a mechanical room where
there is adequate combustion and ventilating air. NOTE: To
prevent combustion air contamination, see Table 2.
Combustion air from the indoor space can be used if the space
has adequate area or when air is provided through a duct or
louver to supply sufficient combustion air based on the water
heater input. Never obstruct the supply of combustion air to
the water heater. If the water heater is installed in areas where
indoor air is contaminated (see Table 2) it is imperative that the
water heater be installed as direct vent so that all combustion
air is taken directly from the outdoors into the water heater
intake connection.
Unconfined space is space with volume greater than 50
cubic feet per 1,000 BTU/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the
total input rating of all fuel-burning appliances installed in
that space. Rooms connected directly to this space through
openings not furnished with doors are considered part of the
space. See Venting Section for details.
Confined space is space with volume less than 50 cubic feet
per 1,000 BTU/hr (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the total input
rating of all fuel-burning appliances installed in that space.
Rooms connected directly to this space through openings not
furnished with doors are considered part of the space.
When drawing combustion air from inside a conventionally
constructed building to a confined space, such space should
be provided with two permanent openings: one located 6”
(15cm) below the space ceiling, the other 6” (15cm) above
the space floor. Each opening should have a free area of one
square inch per 1,000 BTU/hr (22cm2/kW) of the total input of
all appliances in the space, but not less than 100 square inches
(645cm2).
If the confined space is within a building of tight construction,
air for combustion must be obtained from the outdoors as
outlined in the Venting section of this manual.
When drawing combustion air from the outside into the
mechanical room, care must be taken to provide adequate
freeze protection.
Failure to provide an adequate supply of fresh combustion
air can cause poisonous flue gases to enter the living space,
resulting in severe personal injury or death. To prevent
combustion air contamination, see Table 2.
F. Prevent Combustion Air Contamination
Install intake air piping for the heater as described in the
Venting Section, this manual. Do not terminate exhaust in
locations that can allow contamination of intake air.
Ensure that the intake air will not contain any of the
contaminants in Table 2. Contaminated air will damage the
heater, resulting in possible substantial property damage,
severe personal injury, or death. For example, do not pipe
intake air near a swimming pool or laundry facilities. These
areas always contain contaminants.

severe personal injury, or death.
Failure to follow all instructions can result in flue gas spillage
and carbon monoxide emissions, causing severe personal injury
or death.
When removing an existing heater, follow the steps below.
1. Seal any unused openings in the common venting system.
2. Visually inspect the venting system for proper size and
horizontal pitch to determine if there is blockage, leakage,
corrosion, or other deficiencies that could cause an unsafe
condition.
3. If practical, close all building doors, windows, and doors
between the space in which the water heater remains connected
to the common venting system and other spaces in the building.
Turn on clothes dryers and any appliances not connected to
the common venting system. Turn on any exhaust fans, such as
range hoods and bathroom exhausts, at maximum speed. Do
not operate a summer exhaust fan. Close all fireplace dampers.
4. Place in operation the appliance being inspected. Follow the
lighting instructions. Adjust the thermostat so the appliance will
operate continuously.
5. Test for spillage at the draft hood relief opening after 5
minutes of main burner operation. Use the flame of a match or

6. After it has been determined that each appliance remaining
connected to the common venting system properly vents
when tested as outlined, return doors, windows, exhaust fans,
fireplace dampers, and any other gas burning appliances to their
previous condition of use.
7. Any improper operation of the common venting system
should be corrected to conform to the National Fuel Gas Code,
ANSI Z223.1. When resizing any portion of the common venting
system, the system should approach the minimum size as
determined using the appropriate tables in Appendix G of ANSI
Z223.1.

is heated and cause accelerated lime scale accumulation on
a heat transfer surface. This lime scale build-up may result in
premature failure of the water heater. Operating temperatures
above 135oF will further accelerate the build-up of lime scale
and may shorten the service life of the water heater.
Water that is classified as hard and very hard must be softened
to avoid water heater failure.

pH of Water
pH is a measure of relative acidity, neutrality, or alkalinity.
Dissolved minerals and gases affect water pH. The pH scale
ranges from 0 to 14. Water with a pH of 7 is considered neutral.
Water with pH lower than 7 is considered acidic. Water with a
pH higher than 7 is considered alkaline. A neutral pH (around
7) is desirable for most potable water applications. Corrosion

Part 5 - Venting and Condensate Removal
The heater must be vented as detailed in this section. Ensure
exhaust vent and intake piping complies with these instructions
regarding vent system. Inspect finished exhaust vent and intake
piping thoroughly to ensure all joints are well secured, airtight,
and comply with all applicable code requirements, as well as the
instructions provided in this manual. Failure to properly install
the vent system will result in severe personal injury or death.
A. General
This heater is certified as a “Category IV” appliance and
requires a special venting system. The vent system will operate
with a positive pressure in the pipe. Exhaust gases must be
piped directly outdoors using the vent materials and rules
outlined in these instructions. Do not connect vent connectors
serving appliances vented by natural draft into any portion of
mechanical draft systems operating under positive pressure.
Follow the venting instructions carefully. Failure to do so will
result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury,
or death.
1. Installation should be made in accordance with the regulations
of the Authority Having Jurisdiction, local code authorities, and
utility companies which pertain to this type of water heating
equipment.
2. Install the venting system in accordance with these
instructions and with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/
NFPA 54, CAN/CGA B149, and / or applicable provisions of local
building codes.
3. This water heater must be vented with materials, components,
and systems listed and approved for Category IV appliances.
Exhaust and intake are to be piped separately. This heater
cannot share a common exhaust or intake with multiple
appliances. Failure to follow these instructions will result in
substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
NOTE: To avoid contamination often contained in indoor air, it
is best to pipe all intake combustion air directly to the outdoors.
NOTE: If exhaust vent pipe system passes through an unheated
space such as an alcove or attic, the space must be heated or
the pipe must be insulated. The insulation must have an R value
sufficient to prevent freezing of the condensate.
Improper seating of vent pipe gaskets can cause eventual
gasket failure and exhaust gas leakage. Ensure the exhaust vent
pipe is properly beveled and seated before insertion into the
flue adapter. Failure to do so could result in property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.
LP-441 Rev. 2.24.15
Due to the extreme flammability of most glues, cements,
solvents, and primers used to join plastic exhaust vent and
intake pipes, explosive solvent vapors must be cleared from
all vent piping before start-up. Avoid using excess cement or
primer, as this may pool in the vent pipes. Vent assemblies
should be allowed to cure for a period of at least 8 hours before
powering a connected appliance. Failure to follow these
instructions will result in substantial property damage, severe
personal injury, or death. It is the installers’ responsibility to
understand the hazards associated with explosive solvents
and take the necessary precautions to avoid these risks.
DO NOT insulate the first 3 feet of the exhaust vent. CPVC,
Polypropylene, or Stainless Steel pipe material MUST be
used for the first 3 feet of the vent run if the exhaust vent is
insulated or passes through an enclosed space greater than
6”, such as a wall. The balance of the vent run can be installed
with standard Schedule 40 PVC pipe. Failure to comply with
this warning could result in property damage, severe personal
injury, or death.
Exhaust vent adaptors are not designed as load-bearing
devices, and must not be used to support exhaust vent piping.
All vent pipes must be properly connected, supported, and
the exhaust vent must be pitched a minimum of 1/4” per foot
back to the heater to allow drainage of condensate. Failure
to properly support vent piping and follow the information
in this statement could result in product damage, severe
personal injury, or death.

b. For example: If the exhaust vent has two 90o elbows and
10 feet of PVC pipe we will calculate:
Exhaust Vent Equivalent Length = (2x5) + 10 = 20 feet.
Further, if the intake pipe has two 90o elbows, one 45o
elbow, and 10 feet of PVC pipe, the following calculation
applies:
Intake Pipe Equivalent Length = (2x5) + 3 + 10 = 23 feet.
Finally, if a concentric kit is used we find:
Total Equivalent Length = 20 + 23 + 3 = 46 feet.
The total equivalent length is 46 feet, well below the
maximum of 150 feet.
c. Effort should be made to keep a minimum difference in
equivalent length between the exhaust vent and intake
pipe.
3. The minimum total equivalent length is 16 feet.
Do not exceed the maximum lengths for vent pipes. Excessive
length could result in heater shutdown and property damage.
Failure to provide a minimum total vent length of 16
equivalent feet could result in property damage and improper
product operation.
F. Longer Vent Runs
The maximum total equivalent length can be extended by
increasing the diameter of both the exhaust vent and intake
pipes. However, the transitions should begin a minimum of 15
equivalent feet from the water heater.
a. The maximum total equivalent length for increased
diameter vent pipes is 200 feet.
b. Transitions should always be made in vertical sections
of pipe to prevent the condensate from pooling in the vent
pipe.

All joints of positive pressure vent systems must be sealed
completely to prevent leakage of flue products into the living
space. Failure to do so could result in property damage, serious
injury, or death.
1. Use only solid PVC or CPVC pipe or a Polypropylene vent
system approved for use with Category IV appliances.
FOAM CORE PIPING IS NOT APPROVED FOR EXHAUST VENT
APPLICATIONS. Foam core piping may be used on air inlet
piping only.
2. Remove all burrs and debris from joints and fittings.
3. When using PVC or CPVC pipe, all joints must be properly
cleaned, primed, and cemented. Use only cement and primer
approved for use with the pipe material. Cement must conform
to ASTM D2564 for PVC and ASTM F493 for CPVC pipe. NOTE:
DO NOT CEMENT POLYPROPYLENE PIPE.
4. Ensure the vent is located where it will not be exposed to
prevailing winds.
5. In all roof venting applications, exhaust discharge must point
away from the pitch of the roof.
6. To prevent water leakage, install adequate roof flashing where
the pipe enters the roof.
7. Do not locate vent over public walkways, driveways, or parking
lots. Condensate could drip and freeze, resulting in a slip hazard
or damage to vehicles and machinery.
8. Due to potential moisture build-up, sidewall venting may not
be the preferred venting option. To save time and cost, carefully
consider venting installation and location.
9. Horizontal lengths of exhaust vent must slope back towards
the water heater not less than ¼” per foot to allow condensate
to drain from the vent pipe.
10. The exhaust vent must terminate where vapors cannot make
accidental contact with people or pets, or damage shrubs or
plants.
11. In vacant chimney applications, install and seal a rain cap
over existing chimney openings.
12. All piping must be fully supported. Use pipe hangers at a
minimum of 4 foot intervals to prevent sagging of the pipe
where condensate may form.
13. Do not use the heater to support any piping.
14. A screened straight coupling is provided with the heater for
use as an outside exhaust termination.
15. A screened inlet air tee is provided with the heater to be
used as an outside intake termination.

SIDEWALL VENTING WITH KIT
H. Applications
1. Direct Vent Installation of Exhaust and Intake
If installing a direct vent option, combustion air must be drawn
from the outdoors directly into the water heater intake, and
exhaust must terminate outside. There are three basic direct
vent options detailed in this manual: 1. Side Wall Venting, 2.
Roof Venting, and 3. Unbalanced Venting.
Be sure to locate the heater such that the exhaust vent and
intake pipe can be routed through the building and properly
terminated. Different vent terminals can be used to simplify and
eliminate multiple penetrations in the building structure (see
Optional Equipment in Venting Section). The exhaust vent and
intake pipe lengths, routing and termination methods must all
comply with the methods and limits given in the Venting section
of this manual.
When installing a combustion air intake from outdoors, care
must be taken to utilize uncontaminated combustion air. NOTE:
To prevent combustion air contamination, see Table 2.
SIDEWALL VENTING WITH
CONCENTRIC VENT KIT
Take extra precaution to adequately support the weight of vent
pipes terminating through the roof. Failure to properly support
roof terminated piping could result in property damage, serious
injury, or death.

Contractors must check state and local codes before installing
through an existing vent opening. State and local codes always
take precedence over manufacturer’s instructions. Failure to
check state and local codes before installing through an existing
opening could result in property damage and add significantly
to installation costs.
If an existing venting system is converted for use with this
heater, the installer must ensure that the existing venting
system is clean and free from particulate contamination
that could damage the heater. Failure to do so could result
in property damage and heater failure. Such failure IS NOT
covered under warranty.
Concentric Venting Through an Existing System
NOTE: The following instructions refer only to venting through
an existing vent system, and not to venting with HTP’s optional
concentric vent kits. Refer to Concentric Vent Kit installation
manual (LP-166) for further information on venting with the
3. Indoor Combustion Air in Confined or Unconfined Space
This heater requires fresh, uncontaminated air for safe
operation and must be installed in a mechanical room where
there is adequate combustion and ventilating air. NOTE: To
prevent combustion air contamination, see Table 2.
Combustion air from the indoor space can be used if the space
has adequate area or when air is provided through a duct or
louver to supply sufficient combustion air based on the water
heater input. Never obstruct the supply of combustion
air to the water heater. If the water heater is installed in
areas where indoor air is contaminated (see Figure 12) it is
imperative that the water heater be installed as direct vent so
that all combustion air is taken directly from the outdoors into
the water heater intake connection.
Unconfined space is space with volume greater than 50 cubic
feet per 1,000 Btu/hour (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the
total input rating of all fuel-burning appliances installed in
that space. Rooms connected directly to this space, through

optional concentric vent kits.
Concentric venting through an existing system must run
vertically through the roof. See Table 9 for proper minimum
vent sizing. Use only the approved venting materials specified
in Table 5 for piping the system. All instructions listed in this
Venting section apply. See Figures 12-1 and 12-2 for venting
demonstrations.
The upper and lower vent terminations as well as all joints in
the venting system must be properly sealed to ensure that all
combustion air is drawn properly and exhaust does not leak
from the system. Failure to properly seal the venting system
will result in property damage, serious personal injury, or death.
Chase Venting Through an Existing System
When venting as a chase, follow all instructions included in this
Venting section, including those in the previous Concentric
Venting Through an Existing System section. See Figure 12-3 for
chase venting demonstration.

space.
Confined space is space with volume less than 50 cubic feet
per 1,000 Btu/hour (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the total input
rating of all fuel-burning appliances installed in that space.
Rooms connected directly to this space, through openings not
furnished with doors, are considered part of the space.
When drawing combustion air from inside a conventionally
constructed building to a confined space, such space should
be provided with two permanent openings: one located 6”
(15 cm) below the space ceiling, the other 6” (15cm) above
the space floor. Each opening should have a free area of one
square inch per 1,000 Btu/hr (22cm2/kW) of the total input of
all appliances in the space, but not less than 100 square inches
(645cm2).
If the confined space is within a building of tight construction,
air for combustion must be obtained from the outdoors as
outlined in the Venting section of this manual. See Figure 13.

I. Condensate Removal System
NOTE: Check with your local gas company to determine if
combustion condensate disposal is permitted in your area. In
the state of Massachusetts, condensate must be neutralized
before entering a drain.
This condensing high efficiency water heater has a condensate
removal system. Condensate is water vapor derived from
combustion products, similar to that produced by an automobile
when it is initially started. It is very important that the condensate
line is sloped down away from the heater and to a suitable drain.
If the heater condensate outlet is lower than the drain, you
must use a condensate removal pump (kit p/n 554200 available
from HTP). If required by local authorities, a condensate filter of
lime crystals, marble, or phosphate chips will neutralize slightly
acidic condensate.
BOILER OR
HEATER
OUTDOOR COMBUSTION AIR
(SINGLE PIPE)
BOILER
OR

The condensate line must remain unobstructed. If allowed to
freeze in the line or obstructed in any other manner, condensate
can exit from the water heater tee, resulting in potential water
damage to property. When installing a condensate pump, select
one approved for use with condensing heaters and furnaces. The
condensate pump should have an overflow switch to prevent
property damage from spillage. Condensate from the heater
will be slightly acidic (pH from 3.2 to 4.5). Install a neutralizing
filter if required by local codes.
Power to the optional condensate pump is continuous. When the
water heater is powered off the condensate pump will remain
on. It is important to remember to turn off the condensate pump
when powering down the water heater. Failure to do so could
result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.

Figure 15 - Condensate Piping
NOTES:
1. Condensate line must be pitched at least ¼” per foot to
properly drain. If this cannot be done, or a very long length
of condensate hose is used, increase the condensate line to a
minimum of 1” ID and place a tee in the line after the condensate
neutralizer to properly reduce vacuum lock in the drain line.
2. PVC or CPVC pipe should be the only material used for
condensate line. Steel, brass, copper, and other metals will be
subject to corrosion or deterioration.
3. A frozen condensate line could result in a blocked vent
condition. It is very important to protect the condensate line from
freezing temperatures or any type of blockage. In installations
that may encounter sustained freezing conditions, the use of
heat tape is recommended to avoid freezing of the condensate
line. It is also recommended to bush up the condensate line size
to 1” and terminate condensate discharge as close to the unit as
possible. Longer condensate runs are more prone to freezing.
Damages due to frozen or blocked condensate lines ARE NOT
covered by warranty.
4. Support of the condensate line may be necessary to avoid
blockage of the condensate flow.
To ensure proper condensate neutralization it is recommended
to check the condensate neutralizer cartridge every two
years. Gently shake the cartridge to ensure it is still filled with
neutralization media. Replace the condensate neutralizer
cartridge if it is empty. Failure to do so could result in improper
condensate neutralization. Please note that if not properly
neutralized the slightly acidic condensate could corrode
materials subject to corrosion (metals, concrete, stonework,
etc.)

Part 6 - Wiring
To avoid electrical shock, turn off all power to the heater prior
to opening an electrical box within the unit. Ensure the power
remains off while any wiring connections are being made.
Failure to follow these instructions could result in component
or product failure, serious injury, or death. Such product
failure IS NOT covered by warranty.
Jumping out control circuits or components WILL VOID

injury, or death.
A. Line Voltage Input
The heater must be wired to a 115 volt circuit by a qualified
electrician. It is recommended that the heater be wired on its
own circuit to minimize the possibility of circuit failure due to
outside clauses. The heater requires a maximum of 8 amps at
120 volts in use.
Label all wires prior to disconnecting them when servicing
the heater. Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous
operation. Failure to follow these instructions may result in
property damage or personal injury.
Figure 17 - Line Voltage Wiring
B. Line Voltage Condensate Input
The heater has the capability of supplying power to a
condensate pump. The connection is 115 VAC + 10% / - 15%
at a max of 2 amps. Power is supplied to the pump only when
the heater is connected to power, and the power switch is in
the on position.
C. Low Voltage Outdoor Sensor Input
The heater has the capability of an outdoor reset. Connecting
an outdoor sensor allows the heater to operate at optimum
efficiency. HTP offers an outdoor sensor, p/n 7250P-319.
The outdoor sensor must be a 12K NTC sensor. Use a minimum
22 AWG wire for runs of 100 feet or less and minimum 18 AWG
wire for runs up to 150 feet. Instructions are included with the
outdoor sensor to correctly mount the sensor on the exterior
surface of the building. It is preferable to mount the sensor
on the north side in an area that will not be affected by direct
sunlight but will be exposed to varying weather conditions.
Connect the outdoor sensor to terminals marked “Outdoor”.
It is of extreme importance that this unit be properly
grounded. It is very important that the building system
ground is inspected by a qualified electrician prior to making
this connection. Electrical power must only be turned on
when the heater is completely filled with cold water. Failure
to follow these instructions could result in component or
product failure, serious injury, or death.

Failure to follow all precautions could result in fire, explosion,
severe injury, or death.
Ensure the gas on which the water heater will operate is the
same type specified on the rating plate. Failure to do so could
result in water heater malfunction, property damage, personal
injury, or death.
The gas supply shall have a maximum inlet pressure of less than
14” water column (350 mm), ½ pound pressure (3.5 kPa), and a
minimum of 3.5” water column. The entire piping system, gas
meter and regulator must be sized properly to prevent pressure
drop greater than 0.5” WC as stated in the National Fuel Gas
Code. This information is listed on the rating plate.
It is very important that you are connected to the type of gas as
noted on the rating plate: “LP” for liquefied petroleum, propane
gas, or “Nat” for natural or city gas. All gas connections must be
LP-441 Rev. 2.24.15
approved by the local gas supplier or utility, in addition to the
governing authority, prior to turning the gas supply on.
Do not remove the adaptor in Figure 19! It is mandatory that
this fitting is used for connection to a field fabricated drip leg
per the National Fuel Gas Code. You must ensure that the
entire gas line to the connection at the water heater is no
smaller than ½”.
Once all inspections have been performed, the piping must
be leak tested. If the leak test requirement is a higher test
pressure than the maximum gas inlet pressure, you must
isolate the heater from the gas line to continue leak testing.
To do this, you must turn off the factory and field-installed gas
cocks. This will minimize the possibility of damaging the gas
valve. Failure to do so may damage the gas valve. In the event
the gas valve is exposed to a pressure greater than ½ PSI, 14”
water column, the gas valve must be replaced. Never use an
open flame (match, lighter, etc.) to check gas connections.

attach a manometer to the incoming gas drip leg by removing
the cap. The gas pressure must remain between 3.5” WC and
14” WC during stand-by (static) mode and while in operating
(dynamic) mode at full output.
If an in-line regulator is used, it must be a minimum of 10 feet
from the heater. It is very important that the gas line is properly
purged by the gas supplier or utility. Failure to properly purge
the lines or improper line sizing will result in ignition failure.
This problem is especially noticeable in NEW LP installations
and also in empty tank situations. This can also occur when
a utility company shuts off service to an area to provide
maintenance to their lines. The gas valve must not be replaced
with a conventional gas valve under any circumstances. As an
additional safety feature, the gas valve in this water heater has a
flanged connection to the swirl plate and blower.
Figure 20 - Gas Connection
A. Gas Piping
Run the gas supply line in accordance with all applicable
codes. Locate and install manual shutoff valves in accordance
with local and state requirements.
Support gas supply piping with hangers, not by the heater
or its accessories. The heater gas valve and blower will not
support the weight of the piping. Make sure the gas piping
is protected from physical damage and freezing, where
required. Failure to follow these instructions could result in
gas leakage, and result in fire, explosion, property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.
Do not use Teflon tape on gas line pipe thread. Use a pipe
compound rated for use with natural and propane gases.
Apply sparingly on male pipe ends, leaving the two end
threads bare. Failure to follow these instructions could result
in gas leakage, and result in fire, explosion, property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.

Part 9 - Start-Up Procedure
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY READ BEFORE OPERATING
1. This water heater does not have a pilot. It is equipped with an
ignition device which automatically lights the burner. Do not try
to light the burner by hand.
2. BEFORE OPERATING: Smell all around the water heater area
for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas is
heavier than air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
• Do not try to light any water heater.
• Do not touch any electric switch, do not use any phone in
your building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s
phone. Follow the gas suppliers’ instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire
department.
• Turn off the gas shutoff valve (located outside the water
heater) so that the handle is crosswise to the gas pipe. If
the handle will not turn by hand, don’t try to force or repair
it, call a qualified service technician. Force or attempted
repair may result in a fire or explosion.
4. Do not use this water heater if any part has been under water.
Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the
water heater and to replace any part of the control system and
any gas control that has been damaged.

or
together for
5 seconds. In this mode the water heater operates without
modulation, and the combustion system initially runs at the
33
maximum fan speed. The SERVICE symbol is displayed on the
LCD when Test Mode is active.
Test Mode can be used to incrementally increase and decrease
fan speed to test the combustion system. See the tables below
for Combustion Settings and Fan Speeds.
1. Use the
or
buttons to decrease or increase the fan
speed in increments of 50 rpm.
2. Press
to advance directly to the maximum fan speed.
3. Press
to go directly to the minimum fan speed.
4. Range between minimum and maximum fan speed is taken
as an absolute power value (0 - 100%).
5. During Test Mode, the LCD flame symbols are enabled as
follows:
Flame ON and power < 30% -
- 1/3 flame symbol
Flame ON and power > 30% and <75% -
- 2/3 flame symbol
Flame ON and power > 75% - - full flame symbol
6. Burner ON and OFF conditions are:
Burner ON: UPPER temperature < 185oC
Burner OFF: UPPER temperature ≥ 194oC
7. Test Mode can be enabled for a maximum of 15 minutes.
Allowing the heater to operate with a dirty combustion chamber
will hurt operation. Failure to clean the heat exchanger as
needed by the installation location could result in heater failure,
property damage, personal injury, or death. Such product
failures ARE NOT covered under warranty.

If the burner is not operating, lower the set point value to 70oF
and wait for the burner to shut off. Continue to wait for the

are purged from the system. This should take a maximum of 5
minutes. After combustion gases are purged turn off electrical
power to the water heater.

C. Maintenance
The control system requires no periodic maintenance under
normal conditions. However, in unusually dirty or dusty
conditions, periodic vacuuming of the cover to maintain
visibility of the display and indicators is recommended. In dirty
environments, such as construction sites, care must be taken
to keep the water heater burner cover in place and drywall or
saw dust away from water heater.
In unusually dirty or dusty conditions care must be taken
to keep water heater burner door in place. Failure to do so
VOIDS warranty.
Should the burner fail to light, the control will perform two more
ignition trials prior to entering a lockout state. Note that each
subsequent ignition trial will not occur immediately. After a failed
ignition trial, the blower must run for approximately 10 seconds
to purge the system. Therefore, a time period of approximately
40 to 90 seconds will expire between each ignition trial.
If the burner lights during any one of these three ignition trials,
normal operation will resume. If the burner lights, but goes off in
about 4 seconds, check the polarity of the wiring. See electrical
connection section of this manual.
If the burner does not light after the third ignition trial, the
control will enter a lockout state. This lockout state indicates
that a problem exists with the water heater, the controls, or
the gas supply. Under such circumstances, a qualified service
technician should be contacted immediately to properly service
the water heater and correct the problem.
LP-441 Rev. 2.24.15
34
If a technician is not available, pressing the
button will
remove the lockout state so additional trials for ignition can be
performed.
D. Important Notice
It is extremely important that whenever work is performed on
the plumbing system that either:
• The water heater is powered off, or,
• The water heater is valved off and isolated from the
plumbing system.
Failure to take these measures could result in a dry-firing
condition.
The water heater must be full of water and the system fully
purged BEFORE powering the water heater. Performing any
work in the plumbing system without either powering off
the water heater or isolating the water heater through the
use of shut-off valves could result in a condition referred to
as “dry-firing”. Dry-firing the water heater will damage the
heat exchanger, and could result in property damage, serious
personal injury, or death. Such damages ARE NOT covered by
water heater warranty.
Part 11 - Troubleshooting
A. Error Code

an E13 lockout state.
LP-441 Rev. 2.24.15
When servicing or replacing any components of this water
heater be certain that:
• The gas is off.
• All electrical power is disconnected.
In addition, when servicing or replacing components of this
water heater in direct contact with heater water:
• There is no pressure in the heater. Pull the release on
the relief valve to relieve pressure in the heater.
• Heater water is not hot.
Failure to follow these precautions could result in property
damage, serious personal injury, or death. Such damages
ARE NOT covered by water heater warranty.
DO NOT USE THIS APPLIANCE IF ANY PART HAS BEEN
SUBMERGED IN WATER. Immediately call a qualified service
technician. The appliance MUST BE replaced if it has been
submerged. Attempting to operate an appliance that has
been submerged could create numerous harmful conditions,
such as a potential gas leakage causing a fire and/or explosion,
or the release of mold, bacteria, or other harmful particulates
into the air. Operating a previously submerged appliance
could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or
death.
NOTE: Appliance damage due to flood or submersion is
considered an Act of God, and IS NOT covered under product
warranty.
The water heater has wire function labels on all internal
wiring. Observe the position of each wire before removing it.

Part 13 - Maintenance
In unusually dirty or dusty conditions, care must be taken to
keep water heater cabinet door in place at all times. Failure to
do so VOIDS the warranty.
Hydrogen gas can build up in a hot water system served by
this water heater that has not been used for a long period of
time (generally two weeks or more). When opening a hot water
faucet in a system that has been out of use for a time, keep all
ignition sources (electrical appliances, open flame, etc.) away
from the faucet. If hydrogen is present, there will be a sound of
air escaping as water begins to flow. Allow the water to run for
a few minutes to dissipate built up hydrogen from the system.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in property
damage, personal injury, or death.
Allowing the water heater to operate with a dirty combustion
chamber will hurt operation. Failure to clean the heat
exchanger as needed by the installation location could result
in water heater failure, property damage, personal injury,
The water heater requires minimal periodic maintenance
or death. Such product failures ARE NOT covered under
under normal conditions. However, in unusually dirty or dusty
warranty.

of the display and indicators is recommended.
Periodic maintenance should be performed once a year by a
qualified service technician to assure that all the equipment
is operating safely and efficiently. The owner should make
necessary arrangements with a qualified heating contractor for
periodic maintenance of the heater. Installer must also inform
the owner that the lack of proper care and maintenance of the
heater may result in a hazardous condition.
It is extremely important that whenever work is performed on
the plumbing system that either:
• The water heater is powered off, or,
• The water heater is valved off and isolated from the
plumbing system.
Failure to take these measures could result in a dry-firing
condition.
The water heater must be full of water and the system fully
purged BEFORE powering the water heater. Performing any
work in the plumbing system without either powering off
the water heater or isolating the water heater through the
use of shut-off valves could result in a condition referred to
as “dry-firing”. Dry-firing the water heater will damage the
heat exchanger, and could result in property damage, serious
personal injury, or death. Such damages ARE NOT covered by
water heater warranty.
