INSTALLATION
Locating The Water Heater
WARNING
Water heaters are heat producing appliances. To avoid damage or
injury, do not store materials against the water heater or vent-air intake
system. Use proper care to avoid unnecessary contact (especially by
children) with the water heater and vent-air intake components.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD FLAMMABLE MATERIALS,
SUCH AS GASOLINE OR PAINT THINNER BE USED OR STORED
IN THE VICINITY OF THIS WATER HEATER, VENT-AIR INTAKE
SYSTEM OR IN ANY LOCATION FROM WHICH FUMES COULD
REACH THE WATER HEATER OR VENT-AIR INTAKE SYSTEM.
DO NOT install the water heater in any location where gasoline or
flammable vapors are likely to be present.
Water heaters in residential garages must be installed and located, or
protected, to avoid physical damage. For other installations refer to local
codes. In the absence of local codes, the water heater must be installed in
compliance with 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).

Installation (Locating The Water Heater) continued-
The location of this water heater is of the utmost importance. Before installing
this water heater, read the installation section of these instructions. After
reading these installation and operating instructions, select a location for the
water heater where the floor is level and is easily accessible to gas and water
supply lines. DO NOT locate the water heater where water lines could be
subjected to freezing temperatures. Make sure the cold water pipes are
not located directly above the gas control so that condensate during
humid weather does not drip on the controls.
Water heater corrosion and component failure can be caused by the heating
and breakdown of airborne chemical vapors. Examples of some typical
compounds that are potentially corrosive are: spray can propellants, cleaning
solvents, refrigerator and air conditioning refrigerants, swimming pool
chemicals, calcium and sodium chloride, waxes and process chemicals. These
materials are corrosive at very low concentration levels with little or no odor to
reveal their presence. NOTE: DAMAGE TO THE WATER HEATER CAUSED
BY EXPOSURE TO CORROSIVE VAPORS IS NOT COVERED BY THE
WARRANTY. DO NOT OPERATE THE WATER HEATER IF EXPOSURE
HAS OR WILL OCCUR. DO NOT STORE ANY POTENTIALLY CORROSIVE
COMPOUNDS IN THE VICINITY OF THE WATER HEATER.
To comply with NSF requirements this water heater is to be:
a) Sealed to the floor with sealant, in a smooth and easily cleanable
way, or
b) Installed with an optional leg kit that includes legs and/or
extensions that provide a minimum clearance of 6” beneath the
water heater.
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 THE LEAKAGE IS
CORRECTED!
6
Installation (Locating The Water Heater) continued-
WARNING
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO LIGHT ANY GAS APPLIANCE IF YOU ARE NOT
CERTAIN OF THE FOLLOWING:
 Liquefied petroleum gases/propane gas and natural gas have an
odorant added by the gas supplier that aids in the detection of the gas.
 Most people recognize this odor as a “sulfur” or “rotten egg” smell.
 Other conditions, such as “odorant fade” can cause the odorant to
diminish in intensity, or “fade”, and not be as readily detectable.
 If you have a diminished sense of smell or are in any way unsure of the
presence of gas, immediately contact your gas supplier from a
neighbor’s telephone.
Gas detectors are available. Contact your gas supplier, or plumbing
professional, for more information.
The water heater must be located close enough to the outside wall to keep the
venting distance within the maximum distance described in the installation
instructions. Locate the water heater as close as possible to the vent opening.
Read the venting section in this installation instruction manual before locating
the water heater.
This water heater must be located in an area where leakage of the tank or
water line connections and the combination temperature and pressure relief
valve will not result in damage to the area adjacent to the water heater or to
lower floors of the structure. When such locations cannot be avoided, a suitable
drain pan adequately piped for proper drainage must be installed under the
water heater. The pan must not restrict combustion air flow. 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 in (1.9 cm) in diameter and pitched for proper
drainage.
It is recommended that a minimum clearance of 4 in (10.2 cm) be provided on
the side of the water heater for servicing and maintenance of the combination
temperature and pressure relief valve.
This water heater MUST be installed indoors out of the wind and weather.
Note: For California installation this water heater must be braced,
anchored, or strapped to avoid falling or moving during an earthquake.
See instructions for correct installation procedures. Instructions may be
obtained from the DSA Headquarters Office: 1102 Q Street, Suite 5100,

Venting System Condensation
Condensate formation does not occur in all installations of power vented water
heaters but should be protected against on installations where condensation
can form in the venting system.
Formation of condensation in the venting system of power vented water heaters
is dependent upon installation conditions including, but not limited to:
 ambient temperature and humidity of installation location;
 ambient temperature and humidity of venting space;
 vent distance and slope;
 and product usage.
In order to effectively control condensate from adversely affecting the
mechanical components of the water heater several methods may be
employed:
1. For horizontal installations the vent pipe can be installed with a
downward slope (not less than 1/8" (3 cm)) and away from the blower.
2.
In order to prevent condensate from draining back into the blower
(vertical or horizontal runs), an optional condensate kit is available as a
service part (Condensate kit, p/n 239-45875-00). A molded exhaust
adapter with drain outlet is secured with one hose clamp, to the vent
pipe. Tubing is provided to drain any accumulated condensate away
from the water heater and to a suitable drain. The kit comes complete
with instructions for proper installation.
Venting Specifications for 40 Gallon (151.4 L)/50 Gallon (189.2 L)/
60 Gallon (227.0 L):
This water heater is a power vented appliance and is designed to vent its
products of combustion through 2 in (5.1 cm) or 3 in (7.6 cm) diameter vent
pipe to the outdoors. The water heater may be either vented horizontally
through the wall or vertically through the roof. Use a 3 in (7.6 cm) to 2 in (5.1
cm) reducer to connect to the vent outlet when using 3 in (7.6 cm) vent pipe.
Apply proper cement at joint locations. Table 1 lists the maximum vent lengths
for this water heater using 2 in (5.1 cm) vent pipe. If possible, locate the water
heater so that the venting length and number of elbows are kept to the
minimum distance necessary to reach the outside. If the installation requires
venting lengths that exceed the lengths listed for 2 in (5.1 cm) vent pipe in
Table 1 then use 3 in (7.6 cm) vent pipe for the vent connector.
Table 2 lists the venting distances allowed with 3 in (7.6 cm) diameter vent
pipe. When venting with 3 in (7.6 cm) vent pipe, use a 3 in (7.6 cm) to 2 in
(5.1 cm) reducer to exit through the building wall with 2 in (5.1 cm) vent pipe.
Use the 2 in (5.1 cm) vent terminal supplied with the water heater to terminate
on the outside of the building. If the length of the 2 in (5.1 cm) needed to go
through the wall is greater than 14 in (35.6 cm), use 3 in (7.6 cm) vent pipe to
go through the wall and reduce to 2 in (5.1 cm) vent pipe immediately after
exiting the outside wall. Refer to the venting illustrations on the following pages.
If replacing a water heater and the existing vent terminal is identical to the vent
terminal supplied with the new water heater, replacement of the vent terminal is
not required. The vent terminal should be inspected to make sure that it is in
good condition.

HIGH ALTITUDE INSTALLATIONS FOR ELEVATIONS OVER 2,500
FEET (762 m) ABOVE SEA LEVEL
The capacity of the induced draft blower declines with increasing altitude due to
a reduction in the air density. In order to assure safe and reliable performance
of the water heater, contact the supplier for high altitude kit.
Vent Pipe Preparation and Joining
Most failures in vent systems result from improper preparation and joining of
pipe and fittings. The guidelines below must be followed when installing the
venting system. If you have any question about the application or installation of
the venting system, contact the vent pipe manufacturer, supplier, or your
plumbing professional.
1) Specific cleaners, solvents, primers and cements are available for PVC,
CPVC, and ABS pipe. Be sure these materials match the type of pipe to be
installed. The vent pipe manufacturers joining instructions must be followed
in all cases. Never use all-purpose cements, commercial glues and
adhesives or ABS cement to join PVC or CPVC pipe and fittings. Refer to
the table at the beginning of the “Venting” section for approved primers and
cements.
16
Vent Pipe Preparation and Joining continued-
a) CLEANERS, SOLVENTS, PRIMERS AND CEMENTS ARE
FLAMMABLE. Do not store or use these materials near heat or
open flame, or in the vicinity of other appliances.
2) Use proper cutting, deburring and applicator tools to ensure proper
preparation and joining of pipe and fittings.
a) Cutting Tools
i) A square cut must be achieved with a miter box saw or pipe cutter
to ensure a proper mating with the female. If a pipe cutter is used,
the burr created at the outer edge of the pipe must be removed.
b) Deburring Tools
i) A file, knife or plastic deburring tool can be used to remove burrs.
Burrs must be removed from the inside and outside edges of the
pipe to ensure a proper seal.
c) Applicator Tools
i) A natural bristle paintbrush or roller may be used to apply cement.
Prompt application of the cement is important due its fast drying
properties.
3) Inspection, Cleaning, Priming and Cementing
a) Inspect the pipe inside and out for dirt, dust, moisture or grease etc.
Check pipe and fittings for splits or cracks and replace if found.
b) Clean pipe and fittings are imperative for proper joining. Following
cutting and deburring, wipe away any foreign material with a clean dry
rag. If wiping fails to thoroughly clean surfaces, chemical cleaning is
necessary.
c) Primer must be applied to the pipe surface and fitting socket with a
natural bristle brush. This serves to soften and prepare the pipe for
cementing.
d) Cementing must be done quickly to avoid over-drying before joining.
i) Apply one coat to the outside end of the pipe at a width slightly
greater than the depth of the socket.
ii) Apply a coat around the inside of the fitting socket.
iii) Apply a second coat around the end of the pipe.
4) Joining
a) Joints should be made immediately after cement is applied.
b) After fully inserting pipe into fitting socket, hold joint together for about
15 to 20 seconds.
c) Remove excess cement from around pipe and fitting with a clean rag.
d) Cement drying times may vary. Be sure to allow for the recommended
drying time before disturbing joints.
For more specific and detailed information about the above, contact the vent
pipe manufacturer, supplier, or competent professional.

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 carbon build up 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 venting, causing
recirculation of combustion products.
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 tight
construction (heavily insulated, weather stripping, caulked, vapor barrier, etc.)
additional air may need to be provided using the methods described below.
Confined Spaces
Confined spaces are spaces defined as having less than 50 ft3/1,000 BTU/hr
(4.8 m3/kW) of input.
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.
18
Combustion Air Supply continued-
Each opening must have a minimum free area of 1 in2/1000 BTU/hr (2200
mm2/kW) of the total input rating of all gas utilization equipment in the confined
space, but not less than 100 in2 (0.06 m2). One opening must be within 12 in
(31 cm) of the top and one within 12 in (31 cm) of the bottom of the enclosure.
All Air from Outdoors: Provide two permanent openings, one commencing
within 12 in (31 cm) of the top and one commencing within 12 in (31 cm) 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 communicating with the outdoors through vertical ducts, each
opening must have a minimum free area of 1 in2/4000 BTU/hr (550
mm2/kW) of total input rating of all equipment in the enclosure.
2. When communicating with the outdoors through horizontal ducts, each
opening must have a minimum free area of 1 in2/2000 BTU/hr (1100
mm2/kW) of total input rating of all equipment in the enclosure.
3. 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 cannot be less than 3 in (8 cm).
Provide one permanent opening, commencing within 12 in (31 cm) of the top of
the enclosure. The appliance must have clearance of at least 1 in (3 cm) from
the sides and back and 6 in (16 cm) from the front of the appliance. The
opening must communicate directly or by ducts with the outdoors or spaces
(crawl or attic) that freely communicate with the outdoors and has a minimum
free area of the following:
1. 1 in2/3000 BTU/hr (700 mm2/kW) of the total input rating of all appliances
located in the enclosure.
2. Not less than the sum of the areas of all vent connectors in the space.
Specially Engineered Installations
The requirements noted under CONFINED SPACES above will 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.
19
Water Connections
NOTE: BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH THE INSTALLATION, CLOSE THE
MAIN WATER SUPPLY VALVE.
After shutting off the main water supply, open a faucet to relieve the water line
pressure to prevent any water from leaking out of the pipes while making the
water connections to the water heater. After the pressure has been relieved,
close the faucet. The COLD water inlet and HOT water outlet are identified on
the top of the water heater. The fittings at the cold water inlet and hot water
outlet are dielectric waterway fittings with 3/4” NPT male thread. Make the
proper plumbing connections between the water heater and the plumbing
system to the house. Install a shut-off valve in the cold water supply line.
CAUTION
If sweat fittings are to be used DO NOT apply heat to the nipples on top
of the water heater. Sweat the tubing to the adapter before fitting the
adapter to the water connections. It is imperative that heat is not applied
to the nipples containing a plastic liner.
If this water heater is installed in a closed water supply system, such as 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.
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 THAT MIGHT RESULT
FROM EXCESSIVE TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURES.
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.
20
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, ANS
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 is in compliance 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 6 in (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 4 in
(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.
21
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, you may
create the potential for scald injury. To protect against injury, you should install
an ASSE approved mixing valve in the water system. This valve will reduce
point of discharge temperature by mixing cold and hot water in branch supply
lines. Such valves are available from the manufacturer of this water heater or a
local plumbing supplier. Please consult with a plumbing professional.
Water temperature over 125°F
can cause severe burns
instantly or death from scalds.
Children, disabled and elderly
are at highest risk of being
scalded.
Review this instruction manual
before setting temperature
at water heater.

Gas Connections
WARNING
Prior to connecting the gas supply line to a gas fired water heater,
ensure that the gas supply line does not have moisture/water or
dirt/scale inside the gas line. Commonly this check is done at the lowest
point in the gas distribution system prior to gas burning appliances.
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 1 in (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 14 in (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 3 in (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. 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!
23
Gas 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.
Electrical Connections
All electrical wiring and connections must be in accordance with the National
Electric Code ANSI/NFPA No. 70 (latest edition), or the Canadian Electrical
Code C22.1 (latest edition) and any local codes which may apply. The water
heater must be electrically grounded.
If a flexible line cord and plug is permitted by local code, then provide a (3)
three wire grounding type receptacle within 6 ft (1.9 m) of the water heater and
use the flexible cord provided. Do not plug the line cord into a receptacle that
can have its power supply interrupted by a switch that is used to turn on and off
lights.
If wiring in conduit is required, cut the flexible line cord flush with the bushing.
Remove the junction box cover and pull the pressure switch outside of the
junction box. Cut the three wires from the line cord at the bushing inside of the
junction box. Drill a hole to receive the 1/2” electrical conduit connector on the
backside of the blower. Wire the power supply into the circuit at the appropriate
locations. Replace the pressure switch and junction box cover.
CAUTION
Turn off or disconnect the electrical power supply to the water
heater before servicing. Label all wires prior to disconnection
when servicing controls. Wiring errors can cause improper and
dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.

Troubleshooting continued-
Control Sequence of Operation
Start up Sequence
Upon powering up, the control checks for the presence of the vapor sensor, if
the resistance is in the expected range the control will begin normal operation
after 5 to 8 seconds.
Normal Heating Sequence
1. The thermostat senses a need for heat.
2. The control checks the pressure switch condition.
3. If the pressure switch is open, the control sends power to the blower motor.
4. The blower starts moving combustion air through the combustion system.
5. The pressure switch closes.
6. The control senses the closed pressure switch and starts the ignition
process by providing a spark at the pilot electrode and allowing gas to flow
to the pilot.
7. When the pilot is lit, the gas control senses the pilot flame and opens the
main gas valve.
8. The main burner is lit.
9. The main burner and blower continue to operate until the thermostat is
satisfied.
10. When the thermostat is satisfied the main and pilot gas valves close.
11. The blower operates for a short post purge period before shutting down.
12. The water heater remains in the stand-by mode until the next call for heat.

THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR INSTALLATION OF:
GAS WATER HEATERS SUITABLE FOR WATER (POTABLE)
HEATING AND SPACE HEATING
1. All piping components connected to this water heater for space heating
applications must be suitable for use with potable water. In Massachusetts,
space heating piping length must NOT exceed 50 ft.
2. Toxic chemicals, such as those used for boiler treatment, must NOT be
introduced into potable water used for space heating.
3. This water heater must NOT be connected to an existing heating system or
component(s) previously used with a non-potable water heating appliance.
4. When the system requires water for space heating at temperatures higher
than required for other uses, an ASSE approved mixing valve shall be
installed to temper the water for those uses in order to reduce scald hazard
potential.
Please refer to the illustrations below for the suggested piping arrangement.
