Installation (Locating the Water Heater) continued-
WARNING
Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gases are heavier than air and will
remain at floor level if there is a leak. Basements, crawl spaces, closets
and areas below ground level will serve as pockets for accumulation of
leaking gas. Before lighting, smell all around the appliance area for gas.
Be sure to smell next to the floor.
IF YOU SMELL GAS:
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any telephone in your
building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s telephone.
Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE UNTIL LEAKAGE IS CORRECTED!
WARNING
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIGHT ANY GAS APPLIANCE IF YOU ARE
NOT CERTAIN OF THE FOLLOWING:
• Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas and natural gas have an
odorant added by the gas supplier that aids in detection of the gas.
• Most people recognize this odor as a “sulfur” or “rotten egg” smell.
• Other conditions, such as “odorant fade” can cause the odorant to
diminish in intensity, or “fade”, and not be as readily detectable.
• If you have a diminished sense of smell or are in any way unsure of
the presence of gas, immediately contact your gas supplier from a
neighbor’s telephone.
Gas detectors are available. Contact your gas supplier or plumbing
professional for more information.
Proper venting practices must be considered when selecting a location for this
water heater. For exact venting specifications, please consult the Venting
section, of these Installation and Operating Instructions.
This water heater must be located in an area where leakage of the tank, water
line connections, or the combination temperature and pressure relief valve will
not result in damage to the area adjacent to the water heater or to lower floors
of the structure. When such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable drain pan
must be installed under the water heater. The drain pan must have a minimum
length and width of at least 4 in. (10.2 cm) greater than the diameter
of the water heater and must not restrict proper combustion air flow to the
water heater. The drain pan, as described above, can be purchased from your
plumbing professional. The drain pan must be piped to an adequate drain.
The piping must be at least 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) in diameter and pitched for
proper drainage.

Venting
WARNING
The venting system must be installed properly following all local codes
or in the absence of local codes, the latest edition of the National Fuel
Gas Code (ANSI Z223.1- latest edition), or in Canada, The Natural Gas
and Propane Installation Code (B149.1-00 latest edition). Failure to
properly install the venting system could result in property damage,
personal injury, or death.
WARNING
Carefully inspect the venting system of a replacement water heater installation
before connecting to the venting system. All joints in the vent connector must be
securely fastened with screws and fit tightly together. Inspect the venting
system for signs of deterioration (rust and perforation) and replace any sections
that are not in good condition.
The chimney must be lined and in good condition. Check to make sure the
venting system is properly sized for the water heater. If the venting system was
previously sized for another gas appliance that has been removed, the venting
system may now be too large. Refer to the latest edition of the National Fuel
Gas Code (ANSI Z223.1-latest edition), or in Canada, the Natural Gas and
Propane Installation Code (B149.1-00 latest edition) for the correct sizing of
venting systems and common venting with another gas appliance.
Do not vent this water heater into the venting system of another gas appliance
designed to vent under positive pressure.
The water heater should be installed as close as practical to the venting system
to minimize the vent connector length required. Refer to local codes for the
distance limitations on vent connector lengths.
At the completion of the water heater installation, the burner and venting system
must be checked for proper operation with all other commonly vented
appliances in operation. Check for spillage of flue products around the outside
relief opening of the draft hood after several minutes of operation. The flame
from a match should be drawn into the draft hood. Do not use the water heater
or connected equipment if spillage is detected until the problem is corrected.
Refer to the latest edition of the National Fuel Gas Code, or in Canada, the
Natural Gas and Propane Installation Code for complete details on the
“Procedure to Be Followed to Place Equipment in Operation”.
This water heater has been shipped with a draft diverter for which it was designed with
reference to the horizontal and vertical planes, its certified category I, per latest ANSI Z
21.10.3-2015.CSA 4.3-2015 revision. Refer to the latest edition of the National Fuel
Gas Code (ANSI Z223.1-latest edition), or in Canada, the Natural Gas and Propane
Installation Code (B149.1-00 latest edition). If removed, the draft diverter must be
replaced in the same position and secured to the jacket top by which it was installed.

Venting continued-
This water heater must be connected to a lined masonry chimney or venting
system approved by local codes or ordinances. The vent connector used to
attach the draft diverter outlet to the chimney or approved vent must be of the
same diameter as the draft diverter outlet or larger. For proper venting in
certain installations, a larger vent connector may be needed. Consult venting
tables in ANSI standard (Z223.1-or latest edition), National Fuel Gas Code
and CAN/CGA (B149.1 or B149.2-latest editions) Natural Gas and Propane
Installation Code, or local code officials for proper application for your area.
Combustion Air Supply
WARNING
Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gases are heavier than air and will
remain at floor level if there is a leak. Basements, crawl spaces, closets
and areas below ground level will serve as pockets for accumulation of
leaking gas. Before lighting, smell all around the appliance area for gas.
Be sure to smell next to the floor.
IF YOU SMELL GAS:
• Do not try to light any appliance.
• Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any telephone in your
building.
• Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor’s telephone.
Follow the gas supplier’s instructions.
• If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
DO NOT OPERATE APPLIANCE UNTIL LEAKAGE IS CORRECTED!
IMPORTANT
The flow of combustion and ventilating air must not be obstructed.
Provide adequate air for combustion and ventilation. An insufficient
supply of air will cause recirculation of combustion products resulting in
air contamination that may be hazardous to life. Such a condition often
will result in a yellow, luminous burner flame, causing carboning or
sooting of the combustion chamber, burners and flue tubes with possible
damage to the water heater. When an exhaust fan is installed in the
same room with a water heater, sufficient openings for air must be
provided in the walls. Undersized openings will cause air to be drawn
into the room through the chimney, causing recirculation of combustion
products.
Confined Spaces
Confined spaces are spaces defined as having less than 50 ft.3/1000 BTU
(1.41m3/.29kw) per hour.
10
Unconfined Spaces
In unconfined spaces in buildings, infiltration may be adequate to provide air
for combustion, ventilation and dilution of flue gases. However, in buildings of
Installation (Combustion Air Supply) continued-
tight construction (for example, weather stripping, heavily insulated, caulked,
vapor barrier, etc.), additional air may need to be provided using the methods
described above under CONFINED SPACES: All Air from Outdoors or
All Air from Inside the Building: The confined space must be provided with
two permanent openings communicating directly with an additional room(s) of
sufficient volume so that the combined volume of all spaces meets the criteria
for an unconfined space. The total input of all gas utilization equipment
installed in the combined space must be considered in making this
determination. Each opening must have a minimum free area of 1 square inch
per 1000 BTU (6.45cm2/.29kw) per hour of the total input rating of all gas
utilization equipment in the confined space, but not less than 100 square
inches (645cm2). One opening must be within 12 inches (31cm) of the top and
one within 12 inches (31cm) of the bottom of the enclosure.
All Air from Outdoors: The confined space must be provided with two
permanent openings, one commencing within 12 inches (31cm) of the top and
one commencing within 12 inches (31cm) from the bottom of the enclosure.
The openings must communicate directly, or by ducts, with the outdoors or
spaces (crawl or attic) that freely communicate with the outdoors.
1. When directly communicating with the outdoors, each opening must have
a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 4000 BTU (6.45cm2/1.2kw) per
hour of total input rating of all equipment in the enclosure.
2. When communicating with the outdoors through vertical ducts, each
opening must have a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 4000 BTU
(6.45cm2/1.2kw) per hour of total input rating of all equipment in the
enclosure.
3. When communicating with the outdoors through horizontal ducts, each
opening must have a minimum free area of 1 square inch per 2000 BTU
(6.45cm2/.6kw) per hour of total input rating of all equipment in the
enclosure.
4. When ducts are used, they must be of the same cross-sectional area as
the free area of the openings to which they connect. The minimum
dimension of rectangular air ducts must be not less than 3 inches (7.5cm)
Specially Engineered Installations
The requirements noted under CONFINED SPACES above shall not
necessarily govern when special engineering, approved by the authority
having jurisdiction, provides an adequate supply of air for combustion,
ventilation, and dilution of flue gases.
11
Water Connections
Note: BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE INSTALLATION, CLOSE THE
MAIN WATER SUPPLY VALVE.
After shutting off the main water supply, open a faucet to relieve the water line
pressure to prevent any water from leaking out of the pipes while making the
water connections to the water heater. After the pressure has been relieved,
close the faucet. The COLD-water inlet and HOT water outlet are identified on
the top of the water heater. The fittings at the cold-water inlet and hot water
outlet are dielectric waterway fittings with 3/4” NPT male thread. Make the
proper plumbing connections between the water heater and the plumbing
system to the house. Install a shut-off valve in the cold-water supply line.
CAUTION
If sweat fittings are to be use, DO NOT apply heat to the nipples on top
of the water heater. Sweat the tubing to the adapter before fitting the
adapter to the water connections. It is imperative that heat is not applied
to the nipples containing a plastic liner.
WARNING
FAILURE TO INSTALL AND MAINTAIN A NEW, LISTED 3/4” X 3/4”
TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE WILL RELEASE
THE MANUFACTURER FROM ANY CLAIM, WHICH MIGHT RESULT
FROM EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURES.
If this water heater is installed in a closed water supply system, such as the
one having a back-flow preventer in the cold-water supply, provisions must be
made to control thermal expansion. DO NOT operate this water heater in a
closed system without provisions for controlling thermal expansion. Your water
supplier or local plumbing inspector should be contacted on how to control this
situation
After installation of the water lines, open the main water supply valve and fill
the water heater. While the water heater is filling, open several hot water
faucets to allow air to escape from the water system. When a steady stream of
water flows through the faucets, close them and check all water connections
for possible leaks. NEVER OPERATE THE WATER HEATER WITHOUT
FIRST BEING CERTAIN IT IS FILLED WITH WATER.
12
Installation (Water Connections) continued-
WARNING
For protection against excessive temperatures and pressure, install
temperature and pressure protective equipment required by local
codes, but not less than a combination temperature and pressure
relief valve certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory
that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment
or materials as meeting the requirements of the Standard for Relief
Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply
Systems, ANSI Z21.22 or the Standard CAN1-4.4. Temperature and
Pressure and the Standard CAN1-4.4, Temperature, Pressure,
Temperature and Pressure Relief Valves and Vacuum Relief
Valves. The combination temperature and pressure relief valve
must be marked with a maximum set pressure not to exceed the
maximum working pressure of the water heater. The combination
temperature and pressure relief valve must also have an hourly
rated temperature steam BTU discharge capacity not less than the
hourly rating of the water heater.
Install the combination temperature and pressure relief valve into
the opening provided and marked for this purpose on the water
heater.
Note: Some models may already be equipped or supplied with a
combination temperature and pressure relief valve. Verify that the
combination temperature and pressure relief valve complies with
local codes. If the combination temperature and pressure relief
valve does not comply with local codes, replace it with one that
does. Follow the installation instructions above on this page.
Install a discharge line so that water discharged from the
combination temperature and pressure relief valve will exit within six
(6) inches (15.2 cm) above, or any distance below the structural
floor and cannot contact any live electrical part. The discharge line
is to be installed to allow for complete drainage of both the
combination temperature and pressure relief valve and the
discharge line. The discharge opening must not be subjected to
blockage or freezing. DO NOT thread, plug or cap the discharge
line. It is recommended that a minimum clearance of four (4) inches
(10.2 cm) be provided on the side of the water heater for servicing
and maintenance of the combination temperature and pressure
relief valve.
Do not place a valve between the combination temperature and
pressure relief valve and the tank.
13
Installation (Water Connections) continued-
WARNING
Hydrogen gas can be produced in an operating water heater that
has not had water drawn from the tank for a long period of time
(generally two weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is extremely
flammable. To prevent the possibility of injury under these
conditions, we recommend the hot water faucet to be open for
several minutes at the kitchen sink before you use any electrical
appliance, which is connected to the hot water system. If hydrogen
is present, there will be an unusual sound such as air escaping
through the pipes as hot water begins to flow. Do not smoke or
have open flame near the faucet at the time it is open.
This water heater can deliver scalding temperature water at any faucet in the
system. Be careful whenever using hot water to avoid scalding injury. Certain
appliances such as dishwashers and automatic clothes washers may require
increased temperature water. By setting the thermostat on this water heater to
obtain the increased temperature water required by these appliances, the
potential for scald injury increases. To protect against injury, you should install
an ASSE approved mixing valve in the water system. This valve will reduce
point of discharge temperature by mixing cold and hot water in branch supply
lines. Such valves are available from the manufacturer of this water heater or
a local plumbing supplier. Please consult with a plumbing professional.

Gas Connections
The gas supply lines must meet all requirements of the National Fuel Gas
Code (ANSI Z223.1-Latest Edition), or in Canada CAN/CGA B149.1 Natural
Gas Installation Code (Latest Edition) or CAN/CGA B149.2 Propane
Installation Code (Latest Edition).
The minimum permissible gas supply pressure for the purpose of input
adjustment is one (1.0) inch (0.25 kPa) water column above the operating
manifold pressure. See the rating plate and gas valve for the manifold
pressure and gas type. The maximum permissible gas supply pressure is
fourteen (14.0) inches (3.5 kPa) water column for natural gas and liquefied
petroleum gases/propane gas.
1. Connect this water heater only to the type of gas (Natural or Propane gas)
as shown on the rating plate. Use clean black iron pipe or equivalent
material approved by local codes and ordinances. (Dirt and scale from the
pipe can enter the gas valve and cause it to malfunction). The inlet gas
line must have a minimum length of three (3) inches (7.6 cm) drip leg
(sediment trap) installed as close to the water heater’s gas valve as
possible. A ground joint union must be installed as close to the water
heater as possible in the gas supply line feeding the water heater to
permit servicing of the water heater. Compounds used on the threaded
joints of the gas piping must be resistant to the action of liquefied
petroleum gases/propane gas. DO NOT apply pipe dope to the gas valve
inlet and make certain that no pipe dope has become lodged in the inlet
screen of the gas valve. Extreme care must be taken to ensure no pipe
dope enters the gas valve. Avoid excessive torque when tightening the
gas supply line to the gas valve. Excessive torque may result in cracking
of the gas valve housing and could create a gas leak. When tightening
gas supply line to L.P. control, it is recommended to hold the inlet body of
the control securely with an adequate wrench. The suggested maximum
torque is 31.5 ft. lbs. (4.4 kg-m).
WARNING
The manufacturer of this water heater will not be liable for any damage
or injury caused as a result of a cracked gas inlet as a result of
excessive torque.
2. This water heater and its gas connection must be leak tested before
placing the water heater in operation. Check for gas leaks with a soap and
water solution and a brush or a commercial leak detector fluid. NEVER
USE A MATCH OR OPEN FLAME FOR TESTING!
15
Installation (Water Connections) continued-
CAUTION
The water heater and individual shutoff valve must be disconnected
from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of the
system at test pressures in excess of 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa). The water
heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its
manual shutoff valve during any pressure testing of the gas supply
system at test pressures equal to or less than 1/2 psi (3.5 kPa). The
supply line must be capped when not connected to the water heater.
3. While checking for leaks care must be taken to prevent solution from
contacting the electrical connections at the control. If electrical
connections at the control become wet, they must be thoroughly dried
before attempting to operate the water heater.
WARNING
The gas inlet pressure to the gas control must never exceed 14
inches of water column (1/2 psi). The gas supply system and any
pressure regulating device in the gas line must be specified,
inspected and adjusted to assure a gas supply pressure of 1/2 psi
or less. Failure to do so may result in severe injury or death.

DANGER
Hotter water increases the risk of scald injury. Scalding may occur within five (5)
seconds at a temperature setting of 140°F (60°C). To protect against hot water injury,
install an ASSE approved mixing valve in the water system. This valve will reduce
point of discharge temperature by mixing cold and hot water in branch water lines. A
licensed plumbing professional or local plumbing authority should be consulted.
Note: This water heater is equipped with an energy cut out device to prevent
overheating. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fails to shut off, turn off the
manual gas control valve to the appliance and call a qualified service technician.
Note: Whenever the water heater is filled with cold water, condensate will form on the
cool tank surface and drops of water will fall on the hot burner and combustion
chamber surfaces producing a “sizzling” noise. Condensation is normal and does not
indicate a leak. It will disappear when the tank becomes heated.
Burner Flame Checks
Cast Iron Burner: At the time of installation and at periodic intervals (not more than 6
months), a visual check of the main burner and pilot flames should be made to
determine if they are burning properly. For ideal operation, the gas and air must be
properly proportioned. The proper air-gas mixture is obtained by adjusting the air
shutter on the mixer face of the main burner (See Figure 10). To adjust for proper
burning, loosen the air shutter nut, rotate shutter to close the opening in the burner
then slowly rotate the shutter until the yellow tips disappear and the flame becomes
blue. Tighten the air shutter nut. Too much air will cause the flame to lift off the burner
ports and create noisy operation. Too little air will result in soot formation. The main
burner flame should light smoothly from the pilot.
Steel Burner: These models are equipped with self-adjusting air mixture and do not
have an adjustable air shutter (See Figure 11). At periodic intervals, a visual check of
the main burner and pilot flames should be made to determine if they are burning
properly. The main burner flame should light smoothly from the pilot

General Operation continued-
WARNING
Water heaters are heat producing appliances. To avoid damage or injury there
must be no materials stored against the water heater or vent-air intake system,
and proper care must be taken to avoid unnecessary contact (especially by
children) with the water heater and vent-air intake system. UNDER NO
CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD FLAMMABLE MATERIALS, SUCH AS
GASOLINE OR PAINT THINNER TO BE USED OR STORED IN THE
VICINITY OF THIS WATER HEATER, VENT-AIR INTAKE SYSTEM OR IN
ANY LOCATION FROM WHICH FUMES COULD REACH THE WATER
HEATER OR VENT-AIR INTAKE SYSTEM.
MAINTENANCE
The following maintenance should be performed by a qualified service technician at the
minimum periodic intervals suggested below. In some installations, the maintenance
interval may be more frequent depending on the amount of use and the operating
conditions of the water heater. Regular inspection and maintenance of the water heater
and vent-air intake system will help to insure safe and reliable operation.
1.
Annually check the operation of the thermostat.
2.
The flow of combustion and ventilation air MUST NOT be restricted. Clear the
combustion air openings of any dirt, dust, or other restrictions. WARNING! The
ventilation air system may be HOT.
IMPORTANT
The water heater should be inspected at a minimum annually by a qualified
service technician for damaged components and/or joints not sealed. DO NOT
operate this water heater if any part is found damaged or if any joint is found
not sealed.
3.
At all times keep the water heater area clear and free from combustible materials,
gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
4.
Bi-annually conduct a visual check of the main and pilot burner flames to
determine that they are burning properly. See Burner Flame Check section.
24
Maintenance continued5.
Annually remove the inner door and main burner assembly to clean orifices and
related parts of any dirt or other foreign material. Inspect the burner ports for
obstructions or debris and clean with a wire brush as needed. Wire brush and/or
vacuum clean the combustion chamber as needed to remove scale deposits and
debris. NOTE: It is imperative for proper operation of the water heater that the
inner door be replaced in the original location.
WARNING
When lifting lever of the combination temperature and pressure relief
valve, hot water will be released under pressure. Be careful that any
released water does not result in bodily injury or property damage.
WARNING
Do not run out of propane gas. Damage to the water heater may occur.
6.
At least once a year, check the combination temperature and pressure relief valve
to ensure that the valve has not become encrusted with lime. Lift the lever at the
lever at the top of the valve several times until the valve seats properly without
leaking and operates freely.
7. Monthly drain off a gallon of water to remove silt and sediment.
WARNING
THIS WATER MAY BE HOT.
8.
If the combination temperature and pressure relief valve on the appliance
discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal expansion in a closed water
supply system. Contact the water supplier or local plumbing inspector on how to
correct this situation. Do not plug the combination temperature and pressure relief
valve outlet.
9.
A combination sacrificial anode rod/hot water outlet nipple has been installed to
extend tank life. The anode rod should be inspected periodically (every 2 years)
and replaced when necessary to prolong tank life. Water conditions in your area
will influence the time interval for inspection and replacement of the anode rod.
Contact the plumbing professional who installed the water heater, or the
manufacturer listed on the rating plate for anode replacement information. The use
of a water softener may increase the speed of anode consumption. More frequent
inspection of the anode is needed when using softened (or phosphate treated)
water.
CAUTION
FOR YOUR SAFETY, DO NOT ATTEMPT REPAIR OF COMBINATION GAS
CONTROL, BURNERS OR GAS PIPING. REFER REPAIRS TO A QUALIFIED
SERVICE TECHNICIAN.
Contact your supplier or plumbing professional for replacement parts or contact the
company at the address given on the rating plate of the water heater.
Provide the part name, model and serial numbers of the water heater when ordering
parts.
