water pIpInG - MIXInG valve usaGe

* the side recirculation loop connections may not be used as the primary water inlet and outlet connections. for your convenience, plugs are installed in these fittings at the factory. Remove these plugs if needed for your specific installation. Otherwise (as with all connections) check for leaks while filling the tank with water and after completing the installation.

FIGURE 2.

This appliance has been design certified as complying with

American National Standard/CSA Standard for water heaters and is considered suitable for:

Water (Potable) Heating and Space Heating:

All models are considered suitable for water (potable) heating and space heating.

HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD:

Water heaters are intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a temperature which will satisfy space heating, clothes washing, dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and permanently injure you upon contact. Some people are more likely to be permanently injured by hot water than others. These include the elderly, children, and the physically or developmentally disabled. If anyone using hot water from this heater fits into one of these groups or if there is a local code or state law requiring a certain temperature water at the hot water tap, then you must take special precautions. In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that satisfies your hot water needs, a means such as a Mixing Valve, shall be used at the hot water taps used by these people or at the water heater, see Figure 2. Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply or hardware stores.

Consult a Qualified Installer or Service Agency. Follow mixing valve manufacturer’s instructions for installation of the valves.

Before changing the factory setting on the thermostat, read the

“Temperature Regulation” section in this manual.

facts to consIder aBout the locatIon

Carefully choose an indoor location for the new water heater, because the placement is a very important consideration for the safety of the occupants in the building and for the most economical use of the appliance.

this water heater is not for use in manufactured

(mobile) homes or outdoor installation.

Whether replacing an old water heater or putting the water heater in a new location, the following critical points must be observed:

1. Select a location indoors as close as practical to the vent terminal or location to which the water heater vent piping is going to be connected, and as centralized with the water piping system as possible.

2. Selected location must provide adequate clearances for servicing and proper operation of the water heater.

Installation of the water heater must be accomplished in such a manner that if the tank or any connections should leak, the flow will not cause damage to the structure. For this reason, it is not advisable to install the water heater in an attic or upper floor. When such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain pan should be installed under the water heater. Drain pans are available at your local hardware store. Such a drain pan must have a clearance of at least 1.0” (2.5cm) greater than any point on the water heater’s outer jacket and must be piped to an adequate drain. The pan must not restrict combustion air flow.

For example, if a circular pan is used, it must be a minimum of 27”

(69cm) in diameter. See Figure 1.

Water heater life depends upon water quality, water pressure and the environment in which the water heater is installed. Water heaters are sometimes installed in locations where leakage may result in property damage, even with the use of a drain pan piped to a drain.

However, unanticipated damage can be reduced or prevented by a leak detector or water shut-off device used in conjunction with a piped drain pan. These devices are available from some plumbing supply wholesalers and retailers, and detect and react to leakage in various ways:

• Sensors mounted in the drain pan that trigger an alarm or turn off the incoming water to the water heater when leakage is detected.

• Sensors mounted in the drain pan that turn off the water supply to the entire building when water is detected in the drain pan.

• Water supply shut-off devices that activate based on the water pressure differential between the cold water and hot water pipes connected to the water heater.

• Devices that will turn off the gas supply to a gas water heater while at the same time shutting off its water supply.

INSTALLATIONS IN AREAS WHERE FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS

(VAPORS) ARE LIKELY TO BE PRESENT OR STORED

(GARAGES, STORAGE AND UTILITY AREAS, ETC.): Flammable liquids (such as gasoline, solvents, propane (LP or butane, etc.) and other substances (such as adhesives, etc.) emit flammable vapors which can be ignited by a gas water heater’s hot surface igniter or main burner. The resulting flashback and fire can cause death or serious burns to anyone in the area.

Also, the water heater must be located and/or protected so it is not subject to physical damage by a moving vehicle.

10

This water heater must not be installed directly on carpeting.

Carpeting must be protected by metal or wood panel beneath the appliance extending beyond the full width and depth of the appliance by at least 3” (7.6 cm) in any direction, or if the appliance is installed

in an alcove or closet, the entire floor must be covered by the panel.

Failure to heed this warning may result in a fire hazard.

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.

coMBustIon aIr and ventIlatIon

A gas water heater cannot operate properly without the correct amount of air for combustion. Do not install in a confined area such as a closet, unless you provide air as shown in the “Facts to Consider About

Location” section. 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 death, serious bodily injury, or property damage.

Minimum clearances between the water heater and combustible construction are 0 inch at the sides and rear, 5.5” (14.0 cm) from the front and 12” (30.5 cm) from the top. (Standard clearance.) If clearances stated on the heater differ from standard clearances, install water heater according to clearances stated on the heater.

Adequate clearance 24” (61.0 cm) for servicing this appliance should be considered before installation, such as changing the anodes, etc.

A minimum clearance of 5.5” (14.0 cm) must be allowed for access to replaceable parts such as the thermostats, drain valve and relief valve.

When installing the heater, consideration must be given to proper location. Location selected should be as close to the wall as practicable and as centralized with the water piping system as possible.

FIGURE 4.

InsulatIon BlanKets

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. Your water heater meets or exceeds the Energy Policy Act standards with respect to insulation and standby loss requirements, making an insulation blanket unnecessary.

Should you choose to apply an insulation blanket to this heater, you should follow these instructions (For identification of components mentioned below, see Figure 1). Failure to follow these instructions can restrict the air flow required for proper combustion, potentially resulting in fire, asphyxiation, serious personal injury or death.

• 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 outer door, thermostat or temperature & pressure relief valve.

• Do not allow insulation to come within 2” (5.1 cm) of the floor to prevent blockage of combustion air flow to the burner.

• 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

11

FIGURE 5.

If this 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 direct vent so that all air for combustion and ventilation is taken from outdoors.

Propellants of aerosol sprays and volatile compounds, (cleaners, chlorine based chemicals, refrigerants, etc.) in addition to being highly flammable in many cases, will also react to form corrosive hydrochloric acid when exposed to the combustion products of the water heater.

The results can be hazardous, and also cause product failure.

applIances In unconfIned spaces

unconfIned space

is space whose volume is not less than

50 cubic feet per 1,000 Btu per hour (4.8 cubic meters per kW) of the aggregate input rating of all appliances installed in that 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.

In unconfined spaces in buildings, infiltration may be adequate to provide air for combustion, ventilation and dilution of flue gases.

However, in buildings of tight construction (for example, weather stripping, heavily insulated, caulked, vapor barrier, etc.), additional air may need to be provided using the methods described in “Appliances in Confined Space” that follows.”

cheMIcal vapor corrosIon closed water sYsteMs

CORROSION OF THE FLUEWAYS AND VENT SYSTEM MAY OCCUR IF

AIR FOR COMBUSTION CONTAINS CERTAIN CHEMICAL VAPORS. SUCH

CORROSION MAY RESULT IN FAILURE AND RISK OF ASPHYXIATION.

Spray can propellants, cleaning solvents, refrigerator and air conditioning refrigerants, swimming pool chemicals, calcium and sodium chloride (water softener salt), waxes, and process chemicals are typical compounds which are potentially corrosive.

Do not store products of this sort near the heater. Also, air which is brought in contact with the heater should not contain any of these chemicals. If necessary, uncontaminated air should be obtained from remote or outside 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).

water pIpInG

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 temperaturepressure 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.

A properly sized thermal expansion tank should be installed on all closed systems to control the harmful effects of thermal expansion..

HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD:

Water heaters are intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a temperature which will satisfy space heating, clothes washing, dish washing, cleaning and other sanitizing needs can scald and permanently injure you upon contact. Some people are more likely to be permanently injured by hot water than others. These include the elderly, children, the physically or developmentally disabled. If anyone using hot water fits into one of these groups or if there is a local code or state law requiring a certain temperature water at the hot water tap, then you must take special precautions. In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that satisfies your hot water needs, a means such as a *mixing valve, shall be used at the hot water taps used by these people or at the water heater, see Figure 2. Valves for reducing point of use temperature by mixing cold and hot water are also available:

Consult a Qualified Installer or Service Agency. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for installation of the valves. Before changing the factory setting on the thermostat, read the “Temperature Regulation” section in this manual.

This water heater shall not be connected to any heating systems or component(s) used with a non-potable water heating appliance.

All piping components connected to this unit for space heating applications shall be suitable for use with potable water.

Toxic chemicals, such as those used for boiler treatment shall not be introduced into this system.

When the system requires water for space heating at temperatures higher than required for domestic water purposes, a tempering valve must be installed. Please refer to Figure 2 for suggested piping arrangement.

FIGURE 10 .

note: to protect against untimely corrosion of hot and cold water fittings, it is strongly recommended that di-electric unions or couplings be installed on this water heater when connected to copper pipe, see Figure 2 also.

Figures 2 and 10 show the typical attachment of the water piping to the water heater. The water heater is equipped with 3/4 inch NPT water connections.

note: If using copper tubing, solder tubing to an adapter before attaching the adapter to the water heater connections. do not solder the water lines directly to the water heater connections. It will harm the dip tube and damage the tank.

T & P Valve and Pipe Insulation (if supplied)

Remove insulation for T & P valve and pipe connections from carton.

If replaced, the valve must meet the requirements of local codes, but not less than a combination temperature and pressure relief valve certified as indicated in the above paragraph.

The 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 input rate as shown on the water heater’s model rating plate.

For safe operation of the water heater, the 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. Position the valve downward and provide tubing so that any discharge will exit only within 6 inches (15.2 cm) above, or at any distance below the structural floor. 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, see

Figures 10.

No valve or other obstruction is to be placed between the relief valve and the tank. Do not connect tubing directly to discharge 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 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.

FIGURE 11.

T & P valve.

Secure all insulation using tape.

teMperature-pressure relIef valve

The Discharge Pipe:

• 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 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.

• Shall terminate at an adequate drain.

• Shall not have any valve between the relief valve and tank.

This heater is provided with a properly certified combination temperature - pressure relief 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.

14

The temperature-pressure relief valve must be manually operated at least once a year , see Figure 28. 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, and replace the temperature-pressure relief valve with a new one.

Gas pIpInG

hIGh altItude InstallatIons

Make sure gas supplied is same type listed on model rating plate. The inlet gas pressure must not exceed 14 inch water column (3.5 kPa) for natural and propane gas (L.P.). The minimum inlet gas pressure shown on rating plate is that which will permit firing at rated input.

All gas piping must comply with local codes and ordinances or with the

National Fuel Gas Code (ANSI Z223.1/ NFPA-54) or the Natural

Gas and Propane Installation Code (CAN/CSA B149.1) whichever applies. Copper or brass tubing and fittings (except tin lined copper tubing) shall not be used.

If the gas control valve is subjected to pressures exceeding 1/2 psi

(3.5 kPa), the damage to the gas control valve could result in a fire or explosion from leaking gas.

If the main gas line Shut-off serving all gas appliances is used, also turn “off” the gas at each appliance. Leave all gas appliances shut

“off” until the water heater installation is complete.

A gas line of sufficient size must be run to the water heater.

Consult the current edition of National Fuel Gas Code

(ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54) or the Natural Gas and Propane Installation

Code (CAN/CSA B149.1) and your gas supplier concerning pipe size.

There must be:

• A readily accessible manual shut off valve in the gas supply line serving the water heater, and

• A drip leg (sediment trap) ahead of the gas control valve to help prevent dirt and foreign materials from entering the gas control valve.

• A flexible gas connector or a ground joint union between the shut off valve and control valve to permit servicing of the unit.

Be sure to check all the gas piping for leaks before lighting the water heater. Use a soapy water solution, not a match or open flame. Rinse off soapy solution and wipe dry.

Rated inputs are suitable up to 10,100 feet (3,079m) elevation. Consult the factory for installation at altitudes over 10,100 feet (3,079m).

WARNING: THIS HIGH EFFICIENCY WATER HEATER IS CERTIFIED

FOR USE WITHOUT MODIFICATION FOR AN ALTITUDE OF 10,100

FEET (3,079 METERS). INSTALLATIONS ABOVE THESE ALTITUDES

MAY REQUIRE REPLACEMENT OF BURNER ORIFICE. CALL THE

TECHNICAL CENTER AT (800) 365-0024 FOR REQUIREMENTS.

Some gas utility companies derate their gas for altitude, making it unnecessary to install high altitude orifices. Call the local gas or utility company to verify BTU content.

Due to the input ration reduction at high altitudes, the output rating of the appliance is also reduced and should be compensated for in the sizing of the equipment for applications.

Use pipe joint compound or teflon tape marked as being resistant to the action of petroleum [Propane (L.P.)] gases.

The appliance and its gas connection must be leak tested before placing the appliance in operation.

The appliance and its individual Shut-off valve shall be disconnected from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 pound per square inch

(3.5 kPa). It shall be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual Shut-off valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply piping system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 pound per square inch (3.5 kPa).

sedIMent traps ventInG

A sediment trap shall be installed as close to the gas inlet of the water heater as practical at the time of water heater installation. The sediment trap shall be either a tee fitting with a capped nipple in the bottom outlet or other device recognized as an effective sediment trap.

Contaminants in the gas lines may cause improper operation of the gas control valve that may result in fire or explosion. Before attaching the gas line be sure that all gas pipe is clean on the inside. To trap any dirt or foreign material in the gas supply line, a drip leg (sometimes called a sediment trap) must be incorporated in the piping. The drip leg must be readily accessible. Install in accordance with the “Gas

Piping” section. Refer to the current edition of the National Fuel

Gas Code (ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54) or the Natural Gas and Propane

Installation Code (CAN/CSA B149.1).

fIllInG the water heater

Never use this water heater unless it is completely full of water. To prevent damage to the tank, the tank must be filled with water. Water must flow from the hot water faucet before turning “ON” gas to the water heater.

To fill the water heater with water:

1. Close the water heater drain valve by turning the handle to the right

(clockwise). The drain valve is on the lower front of the water heater.

2. Open the cold water supply valve to the water heater.

note: the cold water supply valve must be left open when the water heater is in use.

3. To insure complete filling of the tank, allow air to exit by opening the nearest hot water faucet. Allow water to run until a constant flow is obtained. This will let air out of the water heater and the piping.

4. Check all water piping and connections for leaks. Repair as needed.

vent pIpe terMInatIon

The first step is to determine where the vent pipe will terminate.

See Figures 19, 20, and 21. The vent may terminate through a sidewall as shown in Figure 19 or through the roof as shown in

Figures 20 and 21.

The vent system must terminate so that proper clearances are maintained as cited in local codes or the current edition of the National Fuel Gas Code, (ANSI Z223.1, 12.9.1 through 12.9.4) or the Natural Gas and Propane Installation

Code (CAN/CSA-B149.1).

Instructions on proper installation through a sidewall are provided in Figures 15A, 15B, 15C, and 15D.

Plan the vent system layout so that proper clearances are maintained from plumbing and wiring.

Vent pipes serving power vented appliances are classified by building codes as “vent connectors”. Required clearances from combustible materials must be provided in accordance with information in this manual under FACTS TO CONSIDER ABOUT

LOCATION and INSTALLING THE WATER HEATER, and with the National Fuel Gas Code and local codes.

note:

The equivalent feet (m) of pipe listed above are exclusive of the termination. That is, the termination, with an installed screen, is assumed to be in the system and the remainder of the system must not exceed the lengths discussed above.

3. The exhaust elbow assembly is designed to accept only straight sections of 2” pipe. To start, a minimum of 2” (5.1cm) of 2” pipe must be inserted and glued to the exhaust elbow assembly if utilizing 3” or 4” vent pipe. Use the same method with the blower inlet if a direct vent configuration is utilized.

If using 2” inch vent pipe:

A minimum of 2” (5.1cm) diameter vent pipe must be attached to the exhaust elbow assembly. The total system cannot exceed the lengths discussed above, where each elbow is equal to 5 equivalent feet (1.5m) of straight pipe.

If using 3” or 4” inch vent pipe:

Two inches (5.1cm) of 2” pipe must be attached to the exhaust elbow assembly before adding a reducer to acquire the desired pipe diameter. An appropriately sized 45 degree elbow (supplied locally-a schedule 40 DWV) vent terminal must be obtained with an equivalent screen (supplied in vent kit). The total system cannot exceed the equivalent pipe lengths discussed above where each elbow is equal to 5 feet (1.5m) of straight pipe (3” vent pipe) or 8 feet (2.4m) of straight pipe (4” vent pipe).

u.s. InstallatIons:

note:

This unit can be vented with PVC pipe materials (Cellular Core

ASTM-F891; DWV ASTM-D2665 or CSA B181.2; Schedule 40, 80,

120 ASTM-D1785 or CSA B137.3; or SDR Series ASTM-D2241 or

CSA B137.3), CPVC pipe materials (CPVC41 ASTM-D2846 or CSA

ASTM-F442), ABS pipe materials (Schedule 40 DWV ASTM-D2661 or CSA B181.1 or Schedule 40 DWV Cellular Core ASTM-F628). The fittings, other than the TERMINATION should be equivalent to PVC-

DWV fittings meeting ASTM D-2665 (Use CPVC fittings, ASTM F-438 for CPVC pipe and ABS fittings, ASTM D-2661/3311 for ABS pipe).

If CPVC or ABS pipe and fittings are used, then proper cement must be used for all joints, including joining the pipe to Termination (PVC

Material). If local codes do not allow the use of the PVC termination when a material other than PVC is used for venting, then an equivalent fitting of that material may be substituted if the screen in the PVC terminal is removed and inserted into the new fitting.

canadian Installation of this water heater must comply with can/

CSA B149.1 - Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code which requires the vent system components be certified to ULC S636.

This water heater has been design certified to be vented with PVC pipe certified and marked as complying with ULC S636. This water heater is supplied with a 2 inch 22.5 degree termination elbow that is a special fitting that must be used with the appliance. Any

outlet

piping, fittings and glue used to vent this appliance that is not supplied by the manufacturer must comply with the ULC S636 requirements.

PVC Materials should use ASTM D-2564 Grade Cement; CPVC

Materials should use ASTM F-493 Grade Cement and ABS

Materials should use ASTM D-2235 Grade Cement.

If the water heater is being installed as a replacement for an existing power vented heater in pre-existing venting, a thorough inspection

19 of existing venting system must be performed prior to any installation work. Verify that correct material as detailed above has been used, and that the minimum or maximum vent lengths and terminal location as detailed in this manual have been met. Carefully inspect the entire venting system for any signs of cracks or fractures, particularly at joints between elbows and other fittings and straight runs of vent pipe. Check system for signs of sagging or other stresses in joints as a result of misalignment of any components in the system. If any of these conditions are found, they must be corrected in accordance with the venting instructions in this manual before completing installation and putting the water heater into service.

note: a.

For water heaters in locations with high ambient temperatures (above 100°F) it is recommended that CPVC or

ABS pipe and fittings be used.

B.

A 22.5 degree elbow (2” vent pipe) or a 45 degree elbow (3” and 4” vent pipe) with an installed screen VENT TERMINAL must be used in all cases.

4. There will be some installations where condensate will be formed in the horizontal runs of the vent system.

This condensate will run into the condensate elbow. The water heater is shipped with a condensate hose that attaches to the condensate elbow. No other tee or fitting is required.

condensate

This water heater is a condensing unit and requires a drain to be located in close proximity to allow the condensate to drain safely. The condensate drains from the unit at the exhaust tee located at the bottom of the unit

(see figure 16). Condensate from this water heater is mildly acidic.

Please note that some local codes require that condensate is treated by using a pH neutralizing filter prior to disposal.

Caution must be used to ensure that the drain is free and clear of debris and will not allow backflow through the condensate hose. Consideration must be given to avoid freezing of the condensate lines which could result in excessive build up of condensate inside the water heater.

Waterproof heat tape may be required to prevent freezing of the condensate lines. Please ensure that the outlet of the condensate drain does not create a slippery condition which could lead to personal injury.

vent pIpe preparatIon

1. INITIAL PREPARATION.

A.) Make sure the solvent cement you are planning to use is designed for the specific application you are attempting.

B.) Know the physical and chemical characteristics and limitations of the

PVC and CPVC piping materials that you are about to use.

C.) Know the reputation of your manufacturer and their products.

D.) Know your own qualifications or those of your contractor. The solvent welding technique of joining PVC and CPVC pipe is a specialized skill just as any other pipe fitting technique.

E.) Closely supervise the installation and inspect the finished job before start-up.

F.) Contact the manufacturer, supplier, or competent consulting agency if you have any questions about the application or installation of PVC and CPVC pipe.

G.) Take the time and effort to do a professional job. Shortcuts will only cause you problems and delays in start-up. By far, the majority of failures in PVC and CPVC systems are the result of shortcuts and/or improper joining techniques.

prIMer

It is recommended that Tetrahydrofuran (THF) be used to prepare the surfaces of pipe and fittings for solvent welding. Do not use water, rags, gasoline or any other substitutes for cleaning PVC or CPVC surfaces. A chemical cleaner such as MEK may be used.

ceMent

The cement should be a bodied cement of approximately 500 to

1600 centipoise viscosity containing 10-20% (by weight) virgin PVC material solvated with tetrahydrofuran (THF). Small quantities of dimethyl formamide (DMF) may be included to act as a retarding agent to extend curing time. Select the proper cement; Schedule 40 cement should be used for Schedule 40 pipe. Never use all-purpose cements, commercial glues and adhesives or ABS cement to join PVC or CPVC pipe and fittings.

2. SELECTION OF MATERIALS.

Cutting Device - Saw or Pipe Cutter.

Deburring Tool, Knife, File, or Beveling Machine (2” and above).

Brush - Pure Bristle.

Rag - Cotton (Not Synthetic).

Primer and Cleaner.

Solvent Cement - PVC for PVC Components and CPVC for CPVC

Components.

Containers - Metal or Glass to hold Primer and Cement. Select the type of PVC or CPVC materials to be used on the basis of their application with respect to chemical resistance, pressure rating, temperature characteristics, etc.

Insertion Tool - Helpful for larger diameter pipe and fittings 6 inches

(15.2cm) and above.

applIcators

Select a suitable pure bristle type paint brush. Use a proper width brush or roller to apply the primer and cement (see chart below). Speedy application of cement is important due to its fast drying characteristics.

IMPORTANT NOTE: A dauber type applicator should only be used on pipe sizes 2” and below. For larger diameter pipe, a brush or roller must be used.

3. MAKING THE JOINT.

A.) Cutting Pipe must be squarely cut to allow for the proper interfacing of the pipe end and the fitting socket bottom. This can be accomplished with a miter box saw or wheel type cutter

Wheel type cutters are not generally recommended for larger diameters since they tend to flare the corner of the pipe end. If this type of cutter is used, the flare on the end must be completely removed.

NOTE: Power saws should be specifically designed to cut plastic pipe.

26

step a

B. deburring

Use a knife, plastic pipe deburring tool, or file to remove burrs from the end of small diameter pipe. Be sure to remove all burrs from around the inside as well as the outside of the pipe. A slight chamfer

(bevel) of about 10°-15° should be added to the end to permit easier insertion of the pipe into the end of the fitting. Failure to chamfer the edge of the pipe may remove cement from the fitting socket, causing the joint to leak.

step B

C. Test dry fit of the joint

Tapered fitting sockets are designed so that an interfaced fit should occur when the pipe is inserted about 1/3 to 2/3 of the way into the socket. Occasionally, when pipe fitting dimensions are at the tolerance extremes, it will be possible to fully insert dry pipe to the bottom of the fitting socket. When this happens, a sufficient quantity of cement must be applied to the joint to fill the gap between the pipe and fitting.

The gap must be filled to obtain a strong, leak-free joint.

d. Inspection, cleaning, priming

Visually inspect the inside of the pipe and fitting sockets and remove all dirt, grease or moisture with a clean dry rag. If wiping fails to clean the surfaces, a chemical cleaner must be used.

Check for possible damage such as splits or cracks and replace if necessary.

depth-of-entry

Marking the depth of entry is a way to check if the pipe has reached the bottom of the fitting socket in Step F. Measure the fitting depth and mark this distance on the pipe O.D. You may want to add several inches to the distance and make a second mark as the primer and cement will most likely destroy your first one.

Apply primer to the surface of the pipe and fitting socket with a natural bristle brush. This process softens and prepares the

PVC or CPVC for the solvent cementing step. Move quickly and without hesitation to the cementing procedure while the surfaces are still wet with primer.

e. application of solvent cement

• Apply the solvent cement evenly and quickly around the outside of the pipe at a width a little greater than the depth of the fitting socket.

• Apply a light coat of cement evenly around the inside of the fitting socket. Avoid puddling.

• Apply a second coat of cement to the pipe end.

step e f. joint assembly

Working quickly, insert the pipe into the fitting socket bottom and give the pipe or fitting a 1/4 turn to evenly distribute the cement.

Do not continue to rotate the pipe after it has hit the bottom of the fitting socket. A good joint will have sufficient cement to make a bead all the way around the outside of the fitting hub. The fitting will have a tendency to slide back while the cement is still wet so hold the joint together for about 15 seconds.

step f

G. cleanup and joint movement

Remove all excess cement from around the pipe and fitting with a dry cotton rag. This must be done while the cement is still soft.

The joint should not be disturbed immediately after the cementing procedure, and sufficient time should be allowed for proper curing of the joint. Exact drying time is difficult to predict because it depends on variables such as temperature, humidity and cement integrity. For more specific information, you should contact your solvent cement manufacturer.

controls and swItches

This model is provided with three pressure switches. These switches are essential to the safe and proper operation of the unit. All switches are wired in series. The controller is set up to shut the unit down whenever there is a failure of any of the switches. It is important to understand the purpose of each switch.

FIGURE 12.

Blower prover swItch

(SEE FIGURE 12)

The Blower Prover Switch is provided on the heater to verify that the fan is operating. It is a positive pressure switch whose electrical contacts are normally open. When the fan increases the pressure in the burner, the pressure switch will allow the electrical contacts to close. The pressure switch is connected to the burner tap by a piece of tygon tubing. This tubing must be connected in order for the switch to change the electrical contacts. The controller requires that the electrical contacts on this air flow switch be open before it will allow the blower to come on.

BlocKed eXhaust swItch

(SEE FIGURE 12)

The Blocked Exhaust Switch is set up to shut the unit off when a build-up of positive pressure in the exhaust vent pipe occurs. This switch is a positive pressure switch that requires an increase in pressure to change the electrical contacts from normally closed to open. When this switch prevents the unit from igniting, most likely the exhaust is blocked by some means. Check to see if the condensate is allowed to flow freely from the exhaust elbow and for obstructions in the exhaust venting and exhaust vent terminal. Also verify that the vent length does not exceed the maximum allowed as shown in the Vent Section of this manual.

BlocKed IntaKe swItch

(SEE FIGURE 12)

The Blocked Intake Switch is set up to shut the unit off when a build-up of negative pressure in the intake air pipe occurs. This switch is a negative pressure switch that requires an increase in negative pressure to change the electrical contacts from normally closed to open. The switch is connected to the pressure tap on the

PVC pipe connected to the inlet of the blower. When this switch prevents the unit from igniting, most likely the intake is blocked.

Verify that the screen on the intake air connection (conventional vent), the intake air pipe and termination (direct vent installations) are free of obstructions that may prevent air from entering the unit.

Insure the screen on intake air connection has been removed on direct vent installations, see Figure 18B. Also verify the intake air pipe length does not exceed the maximum allowed as shown in the Vent Section of this manual.

teMperature reGulatIon

It is recommended that lower water temperatures be used to avoid the risk of scalding. It is further recommended, in all cases, that the water temperatures be set for the lowest temperature which satisfies your hot water needs. This will also provide the most energy efficient operation of the water heater.

The water temperature is controlled using the Temperature

Control on the Display at the front of the unit (See Figure 1).

This control utilizes a temperature probe to determine the tank temperature. The primary temperature probe is located at the top of the tank.

The temperature may be adjusted from 90°F/32°C to 160°F/71°C.

The thermostat was adjusted to 120°F/49°C before the heater was shipped from the factory. It is recommended that lower water temperature be used to avoid the risk of scalding. It is further recommended, in all cases, that the water temperature be set for the lowest temperature which satisfies your hot water needs.

This will also provide the most energy efficient operation of the water heater and minimize scale formation.

Valves for reducing the point-of-use temperature by mixing cold and hot water are available, see Figure 2. Also available are inexpensive devices that attach to faucets to limit hot water temperatures. Contact a licensed plumber or the local plumbing authority.

The table below shows the approximate time-to-burn relationship for normal adult skin. Short repeated heating cycles caused by small hot water uses can cause temperatures at the point of use to exceed the thermostat setting by up to 20°F/11°C. If you experience this type of use, you should consider using lower temperature settings to reduce scald hazards.

HOT WATER CAN SCALD: Water heaters are intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a temperature which will satisfy space heating, clothes washing, dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and permanently injure you upon contact. Some people are more likely to be permanently injured by hot water than others.

These include the elderly, children, the infirm, or physically/mentally handicapped. If anyone using hot water from this heater fits into one of these groups or if there is a local code or state law requiring a certain temperature water at the hot water tap, then you must take special precautions. In addition to using the lowest possible temperature setting that satisfies your hot water needs, a means such as a mixing valve, shall be used at the hot water taps used by these people or at the water heater. Mixing valves are available at plumbing supply or hardware stores, see Figure 2. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for installation of the valves. Before changing the factory setting on the thermostat, read the “Temperature Regulation” section in this manual.

Never allow small children to use a hot water tap, or to draw their own bath water. Never leave a child or handicapped person unattended in a bathtub or shower.

The water heater should be located in an area where the general public does not have access. If a suitable area is not available, a cover should be installed over the thermostat to prevent tampering.

HI LIMIT SWITCH (E.C.O.)

The top immersion well of the dual bulb controller also contains the high limit (energy cutoff) sensor. The high limit switch interrupts main burner gas flow should water temperature reach approximately 202°F/94°C.

Should the high limit switch activate, the control system will automatically reset the unit once the water temperature in the tank falls below 140°F/60°C. If the unit is manually shut down and restarted, as long as the temperature in the tank is lower than 160°F/71°C, the unit will reset and initiate operation.

If you experience higher than usual water temperature along with frequent automatic resetting of the system, this is evidence of high limit switch operation. The following are possible reasons for high limit switch operation.

• A malfunction in the thermostatic controls would allow the gas valve to remain open causing water temperature to exceed the thermostat setting. The water temperature would continue to rise until high limit switch operation.

Contact your dealer or servicer if continued high limit switch operation occurs.

sMoKe/odor

It is not uncommon to experience a small amount of smoke and odor during the initial start-up. This is due to burning off of oil from metal parts, and will disappear in a short while.

sMellY water

In each water heater there is installed at least one anode rod (see parts section) for corrosion protection of the tank. Certain water conditions will cause a reaction between this rod and the water.

The most common complaint associated with the anode rod is one of a “rotten egg smell” in the hot water. The smell is a result of four factors which must all be present for the odor to develop: a. A concentration of sulfate in the supply water.

b. Little or no dissolved oxygen in the water.

c. A sulfate reducing bacteria which has accumulated within the water heater (this harmless bacteria is nontoxic to humans).

d. An excess of active hydrogen in the tank. This is caused by the corrosion protective action of the anode.

Smelly water may be eliminated or reduced in some water heater models by replacing the anode(s) with one of less active material, and then chlorinating the water heater tank and all water lines. Contact the local water heater supplier or a qualified service agency for further information concerning an Anode Replacement Kit and this chlorination treatment.

If the smelly water persists after the anode replacement and chlorination treatment, we can only suggest that chlorination or aeration of the water supply be considered to eliminate the water problem.

Water supply systems may, because of such events as high line pressure, frequent cut-offs, the effects of water hammer among others, have installed devices such as pressure reducing valves, check valves, back flow preventers, etc.

to control these types of problems. When these devices are not equipped with an internal by pass, and no other measures are taken, the devices cause the water system to be closed. As water is heated, it expands (thermal expansion) and closed systems do not allow for the expansion of heated water.

The water within the water tank expands as it is heated and increases the pressure of the water system. If the relieving point of the water heater’s temperature-pressure relief valve is reached, the valve will release excess pressure. The temperature-pressure relief valve is not intended for the constant relief of thermal expansion. This is an unacceptable condition and must be corrected. It is recommended that any devices installed which could create a closed system have a by-pass and/or the system have an expansion tank or device to relieve the pressure built by thermal expansion in the water system. Expansion tanks are a v a i l a b l e f o r o r d e r i n g t h r o u g h a l o c a l p l u m b i n g contractor. Contact the local water heater supplier or qualified service agency for assistance in controlling these situations.

do not remove the anode leaving the tank unprotected. By doing so, all warranty on the water heater tank is voided.

“aIr” In hot water faucets stranGe sounds

Possible noises due to expansion and contraction of some metal parts during periods of heat-up and cool-down do not necessarily represent harmful or dangerous conditions.

Condensation causes sizzling and popping within the burner area during heating and cooling periods and should be considered normal. See “Condensate” in this section.

HYDROGEN GAS: Hydrogen gas can be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for a long period of time (generally two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable and explosive. To prevent the possibility of injury under these conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet, located farthest away, be opened for several minutes before any electrical appliances which are connected to the hot water system are used (such as a dishwasher or washing machine). If hydrogen gas is present, there will probably be an unusual sound similar to air escaping through the pipe as the hot water faucet is opened. There must be no smoking or open flame near the faucet at the time it is open.

water heater will create dangerous conditions which can cause

DEATH, SERIOUS BODILY INJURY, OR PROPERTY DAMAGE.

Contact a qualified installer or service agency to replace a flooded water heater. Do not attempt to repair the unit! It must be replaced!

At least once a year a visual inspection should be made of the main burner and the hot surface igniter assembly for proper flame characteristics and ignition sequences. You should also check for sooting. Soot is not normal and will impair proper combustion. A visual inspection of the main burner and HSI igniter assembly should also be done at least once a year.

Soot build-up indicates a problem that requires correction before further use. Turn “OFF” gas to water heater and leave off until repairs are made, because failure to correct the cause of the sooting can result in a fire causing death, serious injury, or property damage.

At least once a year a visual inspection should be made of the venting system. You should look for:

1. Obstructions which could cause improper venting. The combustion and ventilation air flow must not be obstructed.

2. Damage or deterioration which could cause improper venting or leakage of combustion products.

Be sure the vent piping is properly connected to prevent escape of dangerous flue gasses which could cause deadly asphyxiation.

Obstructions and deteriorated vent systems may present serious health risk or asphyxiation.

Chemical vapor corrosion of the flue and vent system may occur if air for combustion contains certain chemical vapors. Spray can propellants, cleaning solvents, refrigerator and air conditioner refrigerants, swimming pool chemicals, calcium and sodium chloride, waxes, bleach and process chemicals are typical compounds which are potentially corrosive.

If after inspection of the vent system you found sooting or deterioration, something is wrong. Call the local gas utility to correct the problem and clean or replace the flue and venting before resuming operation of the water heater.

Vacuum around base of water heater for dust, dirt, and lint on a regular basis.

INSTALLED IN SUITABLE AREA: To insure sufficient ventilation and combustion air supply, proper clearances from the water heater must be maintained. See “Facts to Consider About Location” section.

Combustible materials such as clothing, cleaning materials, or flammable liquids, etc. must not be placed against or adjacent to the water heater which can cause a fire.

anode rod InspectIon

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, see Figure 28.

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, and replace the temperature-pressure relief valve with a new one.

If the temperature-pressure relief valve on the appliance weeps or discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal expansion.

You may have a check valve installed in the water line or a water meter with a check valve. Consult your local water supplier or a qualified service agency for further information. Do not plug the temperature-pressure relief valve.

The anode rod is used to protect the tank from corrosion. Most hot water tanks are equipped with an anode rod. The submerged rod sacrifices itself to protect the tank. Instead of corroding the tank, water ions attack and eat away the anode rod. This does not affect the water’s taste or color. The rod must be maintained to keep the tank in operating condition.

Anode deterioration depends on water conductivity, not necessarily water condition. A corroded or pitted anode rod indicates high water conductivity and should be checked and/or replaced more often than an anode rod that appears to be intact. Replacement of a depleted anode rod can extend the life of your water heater. Inspection should be conducted by a qualified technician, and at a minimum should be checked annually after the warranty period.

draInInG

The water heater should be drained if being shut down during freezing temperatures. Also periodic draining and cleaning of sediment from the tank may be necessary.

1. Set the power switch to the “OFF” position.

2. CLOSE the cold water inlet valve to the water heater.

3. OPEN a nearby hot water faucet and leave open to allow for draining.

4. Connect a hose to the drain valve and terminate to an adequate drain.

5. OPEN the water heater drain valve to allow for tank draining.

note: If the water heater is going to be shut down and drained for an extended period, the drain valve should be left open with hose connected allowing water to terminate to an adequate drain.

6. CLOSE the drain valve.

7. Follow instructions in the “Filling The Water Heater” section.

8. Follow the lighting instructions on the label or see “Lighting

Instructions” in this manual to restart the water heater.

servIce

If a condition persists or you are uncertain about the operation of the water heater contact a qualified service agency.

Use this guide to check a “Leaking” water heater. Many suspected

“Leakers” are not leaking tanks. Often the source of the water can be found and corrected.

If you are not thoroughly familiar with gas codes, your water heater, and safety practices, contact your gas supplier or qualified installer to check the water heater.

Read this manual first. Then before checking the water heater make sure the gas supply has been turned “OFF”, and never turn the gas

“ON” before the tank is completely full of water.

leaKaGe checKpoInts

Never use this water heater unless it is completely filled with water.

To prevent damage to the tank, the tank must be filled with water.

Water must flow from the hot water faucet before turning “ON” gas to the water heater.

A *Condensation may be seen on pipes in humid weather or pipe connections may be leaking.

B. *The anode rod fitting may be leaking.

C. Small amounts of water from temperature-pressure relief valve may be due to thermal expansion or high water pressure in your area.

D. *The temperature-pressure relief valve may be leaking at the tank fitting.

E. Water from a drain valve may be due to the valve being slightly opened.

F. *The drain valve may be leaking at the tank fitting.

G. Combustion products contain water vapor which can condense on the cooler surfaces of the tank. Droplets form and drip onto the burner or run on the floor. This is common at the time of start-up after installation and when incoming water is cold.

H. Water in the water heater bottom or on the floor may be from condensation, loose connections, or the relief valve. DO NOT replace the water heater until a full inspection of all possible water sources is made and necessary corrective steps taken.

Leakage from other appliances, water lines, or ground seepage should also be checked.

* To check where threaded portion enters tank, insert cotton swab between jacket opening and fitting. If cotton is wet, follow

“Draining” instructions in the “Periodic Maintenance” section and then remove fitting. Put pipe dope or teflon tape on the threads and replace. Then follow “Filling the Water Heater” instructions in the “Installing the New Water Heater” section.
