PART 1 – GENERAL SAFETY INFORMATION
A. PRECAUTIONS
This boiler is for indoor installations only. Clearance to combustible materials: 0” top, bottom, sides and back. Front must have room for
service, 24” recommended. (A combustible door or removable panel is acceptable front clearance.) This boiler has been approved for
closet installation. Do not install this boiler directly on carpeting. Category IV vent systems only.
INSTALLER – Read all instructions in this manual before installing. Perform steps in the order given.
USER – This manual is for use only by a qualified heating installer/service technician. Refer to user’s information manual for your
reference. Have this boiler serviced/inspected by a qualified service technician annually.
FAILURE TO ADHERE TO THE GUIDELINES ON THIS PAGE AND HAVE THIS BOILER SERVICED/INSPECTED ANNUALLY
CAN RESULT IN SUBSTANTIAL PROPERTY DAMAGE, SEVERE PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
NOTE: When inquiring about service or troubleshooting, reference the model and serial numbers from the boiler rating label.
DO NOT USE THIS BOILER IF ANY PART HAS BEEN SUBMERGED IN WATER. Immediately call a qualified service technician. The
boiler MUST BE replaced if it has been submerged. Attempting to operate a boiler that has been submerged could create numerous
harmful conditions, such as a potential gas leakage causing a fire and/or explosion, or the release of mold, bacteria, or other harmful
particulates into the air. Operating a previously submerged boiler could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
NOTE: Boiler damage due to flood or submersion is considered an Act of God, and IS NOT covered under product warranty.
Be sure to disconnect electrical power before opening boiler cabinet or performing service. Failure to do so could result in an electrical
shock that could result in property damage, serious personal injury, or death.
NOTE: If the boiler is exposed to the following, do not operate until all corrective steps have been made by a qualified serviceman:
1. FIRE
2. DAMAGE
3. WATER
Any claims for damage or shortage in shipment must be filed immediately against the transportation company by the consignee.
Due to the low water content of the boiler, improper sizing of the boiler with regard to heating system load will result in excessive cycling
and accelerated component failure. HTP DOES NOT warrant failures caused by improperly sized boiler applications. DO NOT oversize
the boiler to the system. Modular boiler installations greatly reduce the likelihood of boiler oversizing.
B. IMPROPER COMBUSTION
Do not obstruct combustion and ventilating air flow. Adequate air must be provided for safe operation. Failure to keep the exhaust vent
and intake pipe clear of ice, snow, or other debris could result in property damage, serious personal injury, or death.
C. GAS
Should overheating or gas supply fail to shut off, do not turn off or disconnect electrical supply to circulator. Instead, shut off the gas
supply at a location external to the boiler.
D. WHEN SERVICING THE BOILER


To avoid electric shock, disconnect electrical supply before performing maintenance.
To avoid severe burns, allow boiler to cool.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
8
E. BOILER SYSTEM




Do not use petroleum-based cleaning or sealing compounds in a boiler system. Gaskets and seals in the system may be
damaged. This can result in substantial property damage.
Do not use “homemade cures” or “patent medicines”. Substantial property damage, damage to boiler, and/or serious personal
injury may result.
Continual fresh make-up water will reduce boiler life. Mineral buildup reduces heat transfer, overheats the stainless steel heat
exchanger, and causes failure. Addition of oxygen by make-up water can cause internal corrosion in system components.
Leaks in the boiler or piping must be repaired at once.
If you have an old system with cast iron radiators, thoroughly flush the system (without boiler connected) to remove sediment.
The high-efficiency heat exchanger can be damaged by build-up or corrosion due to sediment.
NOTE: Damages resulting from incorrect installation or from use of products not approved by HTP, Inc. ARE NOT covered by warranty.
F. WATER CHEMISTRY*





Sodium less than 20mGL.
Water pH between 6.0 and 8.0
o Maintain water pH between 6.0 and 8.0. Check with litmus paper or have it chemically analyzed by water treatment
company.
o If the pH differs from above, consult local water treatment company for treatment needed.
Hardness less than 7 grains
o Consult local water treatment companies for unusually hard water areas (above 7 grains hardness).
Chlorine concentration less than 100 ppm
o Using chlorinated fresh water should be acceptable as levels are typically less than 5 ppm.
o Do not connect the boiler to directly heat swimming pool or spa water.
o Do not fill boiler or operate with water containing chlorine in excess of 100 ppm.
*NOTE: It is recommended to clean heat exchanger at least once a year to prevent lime scale buildup. To clean the heat
exchanger, follow the maintenance procedure in Part 15, Section B of this manual.
Hardness: 7 grains
Chloride levels: 100 ppm
pH levels: 6-8
TDS: 2000 ppm
Sodium: 20 mGL
G. WINTERIZING
NEVER use any toxic chemical, including automotive, standard glycol antifreeze, or ethylene glycol made for hydronic (non-potable)
systems. These chemicals can attack gaskets and seals in boilers, are poisonous if consumed, and can cause injury or death.
Consider piping and installation when determining boiler location.
To winterize the boiler, drain the entire system. Then apply air pressure to the drain valve and allow air and water to escape from the
purge valve (see piping instructions).
Once you have evacuated as much water as possible, pump non-toxic, NSF food grade propylene glycol, FDA rated as GRAS
(Generally Recognized As Safe), into the system. Consult the glycol manufacturer for specific instructions on concentration percentage
as well as freeze and burst protection methods. Check the volume and concentration of antifreeze to assure protection is adequate to
protect the entire system from freezing. When pumping, allow air and remaining water to escape from purge valve. When the stream
coming out of the purge valve matches the color of the non-toxic glycol, the system is adequately filled.
Finally, it is recommended to start the circulation pump and allow the system to circulate for at 30 minutes to completely blend any
trapped water that might be in the system with the glycol.

B. HOW THE BOILER OPERATES
Modulation Condensing Technology is an intelligent system that delivers highly efficient hydronic heating, while maximizing
efficiency by measuring the data parameters of your system.
Stainless Steel Heat Exchanger
The highly efficient and durable stainless steel heat exchanger is designed to extract the last bit of energy from flue gas before it is
exhausted.
Modulating Combustion System
Modulation during operation is based on supply temperature and desired temperature set point. The set point used for the control
depends upon the programmed central heating curve. The heating curve slope can be changed by the installer to better fit system
needs. The control monitors the system to regulate burner output during operation to match system demand. This increase in efficiency
allows for substantial fuel savings.
Gas Valve
The gas valve senses suction from the blower, allowing gas to flow only if the gas valve is energized and combustion air is flowing.
Supply Water Temperature Sensor
This sensor monitors boiler output water temperature (system outlet/supply). The control module adjusts the boiler firing rate so the
outlet/supply temperature is correct.
Return Water Temperature Sensor
This sensor monitors the return water temperature (system inlet/return). The control module reduces or increases boiler input,
depending on how close the inlet/return water temperature is to the outlet water temperature.
Temperature and Pressure Gauge
Allows the user to monitor system temperature and pressure.
Control
The integrated control system monitors inlet/return and outlet/supply water temperature and regulates fan speed to regulate the unit’s
BTU output. This allows the unit to deliver the required amount of heated energy and nothing more.
Burner
Constructed of high grade stainless steel, the burner uses pre-mixed air and gas and provides a wide range of firing rates.
Electrical Field Connections with Terminal Strips
The electrical cover plate allows access to the line voltage and low voltage terminal strips. Attach line voltage conduits to the three
holes at the right of the line voltage terminal strip for power, CH pump and DHW pump. Route low voltage wires through the opening to
the left of the low voltage terminal strip (see Field Wiring Instructions, Part 9).
Condensate Drain Connection
As this is a condensing high efficiency appliance, the unit has a condensate removal system. Condensate is nothing more than water
vapor, derived from combustion products and similar to an automobile when it is initially started. It is very important that the condensate
line slopes away from the boiler and down to a suitable inside drain.
If the condensate outlet on the boiler is lower than the drain, you must use a condensate removal pump (kit p/n 554200 available from
HTP.) In addition, local authorities may require a condensate neutralizer to neutralize the condensate. Condensate neutralizers are
made up of lime crystals, marble or phosphate chips. Neutralizers can be purchased from HTP (p/n 7450P-218).
It is also very important not to expose the condensate line to freezing temperatures or any type of blockage. Plastic tubing must be the
only material used for the condensate line. Steel, brass, copper or other materials will be subject to corrosion or deterioration. A second
vent may be necessary to prevent condensate line vacuum lock on a long horizontal run. Also, an increase in pipe size may be
necessary to allow condensate to drain properly. Support of the condensation line may be necessary to avoid blockage of the
condensate flow.
Spark Ignition
The burner flame is ignited by applying a high voltage to the system spark electrode. This causes a spark from electrode to ground.
The Vision 1 Optional System
By controlling the temperature delivered to the central heating circuits based on outside temperature, the Vision 1 System allows the
installer to take this highly efficient boiler and make it even more efficient. The Vision 1 System is a two temperature system, using one
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15

temperature for central heating and the other for use with an indirect water heater. This allows the user to increase the temperature
supplied to the indirect water heater to get a faster recovery by prioritizing the flow at a higher temperature than may be needed for the
central heating circuits (this requires two separate circulators). You must follow the piping, wiring, and programming instructions located
in the Vision One section of this manual.

PART 3 – PREPARE BOILER LOCATION
Carefully consider installation when determining boiler location. Please read the entire manual before attempting installation. Failure to
properly take factors such as boiler venting, piping, condensate removal, and wiring into account before installation could result in
wasted time, money, and possible property damage and personal injury.
A. BEFORE LOCATING THE BOILER
Incorrect ambient conditions can lead to damage to the heating system and put safe operation at risk. Ensure that the boiler installation
location adheres to the information included in this manual. Failure to do so could result in property damage, serious personal injury, or
death.
Failure of boiler or components due to incorrect operating conditions IS NOT covered by product warranty.
1. Installation Area (Mechanical Room) Operating Conditions
o
o
o
o

Ensure ambient temperatures are higher than 32 F/0 C and lower than 104 F/40 C.

Prevent the air from becoming contaminated by the products, places, and conditions listed in this manual, Part 3, Section F.

Avoid continuously high levels of humidity

Never close existing ventilation openings
The service life of the boiler’s exposed metallic surfaces, such as the casing, as well as internal surfaces, such as the heat exchanger,
are directly influenced by proximity to damp and salty marine environments. In such areas, higher concentration levels of chlorides from
sea spray coupled with relative humidity can lead to degradation of the heat exchanger and other boiler components. In these
environments, boilers must not be installed using direct vent systems which draw outdoor air for combustion. Such boilers must be
installed using room air for combustion. Indoor air will have a much lower relative humidity and, hence, potential corrosion will be
minimized.
This boiler is certified for indoor installations only. Do not install the boiler outdoors. Failure to install this boiler indoors could result in
substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15

2. Check for nearby connections to:

System water piping

Venting connections

Gas supply piping

Electrical power

Condensate drain
3. Check area around boiler. Remove any combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids.
Failure to keep boiler area clear and free of combustible materials, liquids, and vapors can result in substantial property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.
4. Gas control system components must be protected from dripping water during operation and service.
5. If the boiler is to replace an existing boiler, check for and correct any existing system problems, such as:

System leaks

Location that could cause the system and boiler to freeze and leak.

Incorrectly-sized expansion tank
6. Clean and flush system when reinstalling a boiler.
NOTE: When installing in a zero clearance location, it may not be possible to read or view some product labeling. It is recommended to
make note of the boiler model and serial number.

Table 1 – Specifications
Before considering location, many factors need to be addressed. Piping, Venting, and Condensation Removal are just a few of the
issues that need attention prior to the installation of the boiler. Please read the entire manual, as it could save time and money.
B. LEVELING
Figure 3 – Boiler Leveling
In order for the condensate to properly flow out of the collection system, the boiler must be installed with 1/8” per foot pitch toward the
back. The location must also support the boiler when it is full of water. The boiler comes equipped with leveling feet. Should the floor
beneath the boiler be uneven, use a wrench to adjust the feet so the boiler is pitched back at 1/8” per foot.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
15
C. CLEARANCES FOR SERVICE ACCESS
See Figure 4 for recommended service clearances. If you
do not provide the minimum clearances shown, it may not
be possible to service the boiler without removing it from
the space.
Space must be provided with combustion/ventilation air
openings correctly sized for all other appliances located in
the same space as the boiler. The boiler cover must be
securely fastened to prevent the boiler from drawing air
form the boiler room. This is particularly important if the
boiler is in a room with other appliances. Failure to comply
with the above warnings could result in substantial
property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
D. RESIDENTIAL GARAGE, CLOSET, AND
ALCOVE INSTALLATIONS
Check with your local Authority Having Jurisdiction for
requirements when installing boiler in a garage, closet, or
alcove. Please read the entire manual before attempting
installation. Failure to properly take factors such as boiler
venting, piping, condensate removal, and wiring into
account before installation could result in wasted time,
money, and possible property damage and personal
injury.
PRECAUTIONS
If the boiler is located in a residential garage, per ANSI
Z223.1:

Mount the bottom of the boiler a minimum of 18”
above the floor of the garage, to ensure the
burner and ignition devices are well off the floor.

Locate or protect the boiler so it cannot be
damaged by a moving vehicle.
Figure 4 – Required Clearances
For closet or alcove installations, a two pipe venting system must be used. Failure to follow this warning could result in substantial
property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
The space must be provided with correctly sized combustion/ventilation air openings for all other appliances located in the space with
the boiler. Do not install the boiler in an attic. Failure to comply with these warnings could result in substantial property damage, severe
personal injury, or death.
NOTE: For installations using room air for combustion, refer to the boiler venting section, Part 6 in this manual.
E. EXHAUST VENT AND INTAKE PIPE
Vents must be properly supported. Boiler exhaust and intake connections are not designed to carry heavy weight. Vent support
brackets must be within 1’ of the boiler and the balance at 4’ intervals. Boiler must be readily accessible for visual inspection for the first
3’ from the boiler.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
16
The boiler is rated ANSI Z21.13 Category IV (pressurized vent, likely to form condensate in the vent) and requires a special vent
system designed for pressurized venting.
You must also install intake piping from outdoors to the boiler flue adaptor. The resultant installation is categorized as direct vent
(sealed combustion). NOTE: To prevent combustion air contamination, see Table 2.
Exhaust and intake must terminate near each other and may be vented vertically through the roof or out a side wall. Exhaust vent and
intake piping methods are detailed in the Venting Section. Do not attempt to install the boiler using any other means. Be sure to locate
the boiler such that the exhaust vent and intake piping can be routed through the building and properly terminated. The exhaust vent
and intake piping lengths, routing and termination method must all comply with the methods and limits given in the venting section.
F. PREVENT COMBUSTION AIR CONTAMINATION
Install intake air piping for the boiler as described in the Venting section. Do not terminate exhaust in locations that can allow
contamination of intake air.
PRODUCTS TO AVOID
Spray cans containing fluorocarbons
Permanent wave solutions
Chlorinated waxes/cleaners
Chlorine-based swimming pool chemicals
Calcium chloride used for thawing
Sodium chloride used for water softening
Refrigerant leaks
Paint or varnish removers
Hydrochloric or Muriatic acid
Cements and glues
Antistatic fabric softeners used in clothes dryers
Chlorine-type bleaches, laundry detergents, and cleaning solvents

Table 2 - Contaminant Table
AREAS LIKELY TO HAVE CONTAMINANTS
Dry cleaning/laundry areas and establishments
Swimming pools
Metal fabrication plants
Beauty shops
Refrigeration repair shops
Photo processing plants
Auto body shops
Plastic manufacturing plants
Furniture refinishing areas and establishments
New building construction
Remodeling areas
Garages and workshops
You must pipe outside air to the boiler air intake. Ensure that the intake air will not contain any of the contaminants listed in Table 2. For
example, do not pipe intake air near a swimming pool. Also, avoid areas subject to exhaust fumes from laundry facilities. These areas
always contain contaminants. Contaminated air will damage the boiler, resulting in possible substantial property damage, severe
personal injury, or death.
NOTE: DAMAGE TO THE BOILER CAUSED BY EXPOSURE TO CORROSIVE VAPORS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.
(Refer to the limited warranty for complete terms and conditions).
G. REMOVING AN EXISTING BOILER FROM AN EXISTING COMMON VENT SYSTEM
Do not install the boiler into a common vent with any other
appliance. This will cause flue gas spillage or appliance
malfunction, resulting in possible substantial property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.
Failure to follow all instructions can result in flue gas spillage and
carbon monoxide emissions, causing severe personal injury or
death.
When removing an existing boiler, follow the steps below with each appliance
remaining connected to the common venting system in operation, while other
appliances remaining connected to common venting system are not operating.
1. Seal any unused openings in the common venting system.
2. Visually inspect the venting system for proper size and horizontal pitch to
determine if there is blockage, leakage, corrosion or other deficiencies that
Figure 5
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
17
could cause an unsafe condition.
3. If practical, close all building doors, windows and all doors between the space in which the appliance remains connected to the
common venting system located and other spaces in the building. Turn on clothes dryers and any appliances not connected to the
common venting system. Turn on any exhaust fans, such as range hoods and bathroom exhausts, at maximum speed. Do not operate
a summer exhaust fan. Close all fireplace dampers.
4. Place in operation the appliance being inspected. Follow the lighting instructions. Adjust the thermostat so the appliance will operate
continuously.
5. Test for spillage at the draft hood relief opening after 5 minutes of main burner operation. Use the flame of a match or candle or
smoke from a cigarette.
6. After it has been determined that each appliance remaining connected to common venting system properly vents when tested as
outlined, return doors, windows, exhaust fans, fireplace dampers and any other gas burning appliance to their previous condition of use.
7. Any improper operation of the common venting system should be corrected to conform to the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1.
When resizing any portion of the common venting system, the system should approach the minimum size as determined using the
appropriate tables in Appendix G in the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z 223.1.
PART 4 – PREPARE BOILER
UNCRATING BOILER – Any claims for damage or shortage in shipment must be filed immediately against the transportation company
by the consignee.
o
COLD WEATHER HANDLING – If the boiler has been stored in a very cold location (BELOW 0 F) before installation, handle with care
until the plastic components come to room temperature.
A. REMOVE BOILER FROM PACKAGING
The boiler is easy to handle. Care must be taken to place it in a safe location prior to installation to prevent damage to the mechanical
connections.
B. WALL MOUNTING CONSIDERATIONS
T50M and T80M boilers may be wall mounted. Use only the wall mounting instructions included in installation envelope.
The wall must be capable of carrying the weight of the boiler and its related components. The weights of the boilers are approximately:
T50M – 71 lbs.
T80M – 74 lbs.
Failure to comply with above could result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
C. WALL MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS
It is recommended and safer to wall mount the boiler with two people. Use caution as to not drop the boiler, which could damage it and
cause property damage and/or personal injury. Verify that the boiler is securely mounted before leaving unsupervised. Failure to comply
with the above and properly mount the boiler could result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
1. The wall must be vertically plumb and capable of carrying the weight of the boiler and its related components.
2. The building frame (studs) must be 16" on center. If not, you must use 1/2" minimum plywood 24" x 48", fastened with at least (14)
#12 x 3" (3/16" x 3") round head tapping screws to the frame of the building to provide proper support for the boiler. Alternate methods
of mounting must not be used. (ex. toggle bolts, hollow wall anchors) or any other fastener other than #12 x 3" (3/16" x 3") round head
tapping screws.
If the boiler is not vertically plumb, improper and unsatisfactory operation may occur, causing excessive condensation build-up,
nuisance fault codes, and unnecessary maintenance.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
18
3. Prior to lifting the boiler onto the wall, use the enclosed template to level and locate the 2 primary (#12 x 3" [3/16" x 3"]) round head
tapping screws, leaving about 1/4" between the screw head and the wall surface to allow for access to the keyway slot located in the
back of the boiler panel. It is extremely important that the line on the template is level when locating the first 2 screws. Failure to do so
will result in an uneven or out of level installation.
4. Remove the boiler cover. Locate the 2 keyway slots over the screws. Then lower the boiler onto the smallest part of the keyway slot.
5. Once the boiler is mounted on the first 2 screws, finish tightening the screws to the back panel. Then install the 6 additional screws of
the same size to the back panel holes. This will provide additional strength and support to the boiler.
PART 5 – BOILER PIPING
Failure to follow the instructions in this section WILL VOID the warranty and may result in property damage, serious injury, or death.
Never use dielectric unions or galvanized steel fittings when connecting to a stainless steel storage tank or boiler. Use only copper or
brass fittings. Teflon thread sealant must be used on all connections. All piping and components connected to the boiler must be
approved for potable water systems.
Plumbing of this product should only be done by a qualified, licensed plumber in accordance with all local plumbing codes. The boiler
may be connected to a storage tank to supply domestic hot water. HTP offers 60/80/119/175 gallon size storage tanks in either
stainless steel or glass-lined construction. These storage tanks can be directly connected to the boiler supply and return connection.
The National Standard Plumbing Code, the National Plumbing Code of Canada, and the Uniform Plumbing Code limit the pressure of
the heat transfer fluid to less than the minimum working pressure of the potable water system up to 30 psi maximum. The heat transfer
th
fluid must be water or other non-toxic fluid having a toxicity of Class 1, as listed in Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products, 5
Edition.
A. GENERAL PIPING INFORMATION
The building piping system must meet or exceed the piping requirements in this manual.
Use two wrenches when tightening water piping at boiler. Use one wrench to prevent the boiler return or supply line from turning.
Failure to prevent piping connections from turning could cause damage to boiler components.
1. The water supply should be shut off while connecting the boiler. A manual control valve must be placed on the inlet connection to the
boiler. Unions can be used on both the hot and cold water lines for future servicing and disconnection of the unit.
2. Purge the water line to remove all debris and air. Debris will damage the water boiler.
3. If the boiler is to be used as a potable water source, it must not be connected to a system that was previously used for non-potable
purposes.
4. Ensure that the water filter on the boiler is clean and installed.
5. New plumbing typically has contamination in the lines. Please flush the system before connection.
The boiler control module uses temperature sensors to provide both high limit protection and modulating temperature control. The
control module also provides low water protection by sensing the water pressure. Some codes/jurisdictions may require additional
external controls.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
19
B. RELIEF VALVE
The relief valve must comply with the standard for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems
(ANSI Z21.22) and/or the standard Temperature, Pressure, Temperature and Pressure Relief Valves and Vacuum Relief Valves,
CAN1-4.4, as well as all local codes. In addition, the relief valve must be rated to the maximum BTU/hr rating of the boiler.
The American National Standard (ANSI Z21.10.3) / Canadian Standard (CSA 4.3) do not require a combination temperature and
pressure relief valve for this boiler. However, a combination temperature and pressure relief valve may be required by local codes.
Connect discharge piping to safe disposal location. See the following guidelines.
To avoid water damage or scalding due to relief valve operation:

Discharge line must be connected to relief valve outlet and run to a safe place of disposal. Terminate the discharge line in a
manner that will prevent possibility of severe burns or property damage should the relief valve discharge.

Discharge line must be as short as possible and the same size as the valve discharge connection throughout its entire length.

Discharge line must pitch downward from the valve and terminate at least 6” above the floor drain, making discharge clearly
visible.
o

The discharge line shall terminate plain, not threaded, with a material serviceable for temperatures of 375 F or greater.

Do not pipe discharge to any location where freezing could occur.

No shutoff valve may be installed between the relief valve and boiler or in the discharge line. Do not plug or place any
obstruction in the discharge line.

Test the operation of the relief valve after filling and pressurizing the system by lifting the lever. Make sure the valve
discharges freely. If the valve fails to operate correctly, immediately replace with a new properly rated relief valve.

Test relief valve at least once annually to ensure the waterway is clear. If valve does not operate, turn the boiler “off” and call
a plumber immediately.

Take care whenever operating relief valve to avoid scalding injury or property damage.

For boilers installed with only a pressure relief valve, the separate storage vessel must have a temperature and pressure relief
valve installed. This relief valve shall comply with Relief Valves for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22 / CSA4.4.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THE ABOVE GUIDELINES COULD RESULT IN FAILURE OF RELIEF VALVE OPERATION,
RESULTING IN POSSIBILITY OF SUBSTANTIAL PROPERTY DAMAGE, SEVERE PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
Hot water outlet pipes can be hot to touch. Insulation must be used for hot water pipes below 36” to protect children against injuries due
to scalds.
NOTE: If a relief valve discharges periodically, this may
be due to thermal expansion in a closed water supply
system. DO NOT PLUG THE RELIEF VALVE. An
expansion tank may be required.

C. SEPARATE LOW WATER CUTOFF
A low water cutoff may be required by state and local codes, or by some insurance companies. A low water cutoff is also required if the
boiler is installed above the piping level. Check code requirements before installing the boiler.
If required:

Use an electrode probe type low water cutoff designed for hydronic installations.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
20


Install in a tee on the supply piping above the boiler.
Follow low water cutoff manufacturer’s instructions.
D. BACKFLOW PREVENTER
Use a backflow preventer specifically designed for hydronic boiler installations. This valve should be installed on the cold water fill
supply line per local codes. (See piping details at the end of this section.)
All piping methods shown in this manual use primary/secondary connection to the boiler loop. This is to avoid the possibility of noise or
actuator problems in zone valves because of the high-head boiler circulator. For other piping methods, consult your local HTP
representative or refer to separate piping details in this manual.
E. SYSTEM WATER PIPING METHODS
EXPANSION TANK AND MAKE-UP WATER
1. Ensure expansion tank size will handle boiler and system water volume and temperature. Allow 3 gallons for the boiler and its piping;
4 gallons for 399 models and piping.
Expansion tanks must be sized according to total system volume. This includes all length of pipe, all fixtures, appliances, etc. Failure to
properly size system expansion could result in wasted time, money, and possible property damage, personal injury, or death.
Undersized expansion tanks cause system water to be lost from relief valve and make-up water to be added through fill valve. Eventual
failure can result due to excessive make-up water addition. SUCH FAILURE IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.
2. Expansion tank must be located as shown in Piping diagrams, or following recognized design methods. See tank manufacturer’s
instructions for details.
3. Connect the expansion tank to the air separator only if the separator is on the suction side of the circulator. Always install the system
fill connection at the same point as the expansion tank connection to the system.
4. Most chilled water systems are piped using a closed type expansion tank.
DO NOT install automatic air vents on closed-type expansion tank systems. Air must remain in the system and return to the tank to
provide its air cushion. An automatic air vent would cause air to leave the system, resulting in water-logging the expansion tank.
DIAPHRAGM (OR BLADDER) EXPANSION TANK
Always install an automatic air vent on top of the air separator to remove residual air from the system.
F. CIRCULATORS
DO NOT use the boiler circulator in any location other than the ones shown in this manual. The boiler circulator is selected to ensure
adequate flow through the boiler. Failure to comply could result in unreliable performance and nuisance shut downs from insufficient
flow.
SIZING SPACE HEAT SYSTEM PIPING
1. See Piping Details in this section. In all diagrams, the space heating system is isolated from the heating loop by the
primary/secondary connection.
2. Size the piping and components in the space heating system using recognized design methods.
G. HYDRONIC PIPING WITH CIRCULATORS, ZONE VALVES, AND MULTIPLE BOILERS
This boiler may function in a closed loop 15 psi system. A factory installed water pressure switch ensures adequate pressure in the
system. The boiler will not operate without a minimum of 10 psi water pressure. This assures you that if the system does have a leak,
the boiler will lock out (PRO on the display) before it damages the heat exchanger.
The included temperature and pressure gauge allows the user to monitor the system pressure and outlet temperature from the boiler. It
is important to note that the boiler has a minimal amount of pressure drop that must be calculated when sizing the circulators. Each
installation must also have an air elimination device that will remove air from the system.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
21
Install the boiler so the gas ignition components are protected from water (dripping, spraying, etc.), and allow clearance for basic
service of the circulator, valves, and other components. Observe minimum 1” clearance around all un-insulated hot water pipes when
openings around pipes are not protected by noncombustible materials. On a boiler installed above radiation level, some states and local
codes require a low water cut off device (See Part C this section). If the boiler supplies hot water to heating coils in air handler units,
flow control valves or other devices must be installed to prevent gravity circulation of boiler water in the coils during the cooling cycle.
Chilled water medium must be piped in parallel with the boiler.
Freeze protection for new or existing systems must use glycol specifically formulated for hydronic systems that includes inhibitors to
prevent the glycol from attacking the metallic system components. The system should be check annually, and as recommended by the
glycol producer, to ensure that the system is operating with the correct glycol concentration and inhibitor level. Allowances should be
made for the expansion of glycol solution in the system, as 50% by volume glycol solution expands 4.8% in volume when increasing in
temperature from 32oF to 180oF, while water expands 3% over the same temperature rise.
The boiler should not be operated as a potable hot water boiler. Operating this boiler as a potable water boiler will VOID warranty.
The basic steps listed below provide a basic installation guide for the boiler.
1. Connect the system return marked “Boiler In”.
2. Connect the system supply marked “Boiler Out”.
3. Install purge and balance valve or shut off valve and drain on system return to purge air out of each zone.
4. Install a back flow preventer on the cold feed make-up water line.
5. Install a pressure reducing valve on the cold feed make-up water line, (15 psi nominal on the system return). Check temperature and
pressure gauge, which should read minimum pressure of 12 psi.
6. Install a circulator as shown in piping details (this section). Make sure the circulator is properly sized for the system and friction loss.
7. Install an expansion tank on the system supply. Consult the tank manufacturer’s instruction for specific information relating to
expansion tank installation. Size the expansion tank for the required system volume and capacity.
8. Install an air elimination device on the system supply.
9. Install a drain valve at the lowest point of the system. NOTE: The boiler cannot be drained completely of water without purging the
unit with an air pressure 15 psi.
10. The safety relief valve is installed at the factory. Pipe the discharge of the safety relief valve to prevent injury in the event of
pressure relief. Pipe the discharge 6” above the drain to a drain. Provide piping that is the same size as the safety relief valve outlet.
Never block the outlet of safety relief valve.
H. CIRCULATOR SIZING
The heat exchanger has pressure drop which must be considered in your system design. Refer to the graph in Figure 6 for pressure
drop through the heat exchanger for recommended pump selection at a 20∆t design.
The chart below represents various system temperatures and their respective flows and friction loss through the boiler, which will aid
circulator selection.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15

The chart below represents various system temperatures, respective flows and friction loss through the boiler to aid in circulator
selection.

23
I. ZONING WITH ZONE VALVES
1. Connect boiler to system as shown in 2A and 2B in Piping Details when zoning with zone valves. The primary/secondary piping
shown ensures the boiler loop will have sufficient flow. It also avoids applying the high head of the boiler circulator to the zone valves.
2. Connect DHW (domestic hot water) piping to indirect storage water heater as shown.
J. ZONING WITH CIRCULATORS
1. Connect boiler to system when circulator zoning as shown in 2C and 2D in Piping Details when zoning with circulators. The boiler
circulator cannot be used for a zone. It must supply only the boiler loop.
2. Install a separate circulator for each zone.
3. Connect DHW (domestic hot water) piping to indirect storage water boiler as shown.
K. MULTIPLE BOILERS
1. Connect multiple boilers as shown in 2E and 2F in Piping Details.
2. All piping shown is reverse return to assure balanced flow through the connected boilers.
3. Each connected boiler must have its own circulator pump to assure adequate flow.
4. Connect DHW (domestic hot water) piping to indirect storage water heater as shown.
L. FILL AND PURGE HEATING SYSTEM





Attach the hose to balance and purge hose connector or drain valve and run hose to nearest drain.
Close the other side of the balance and purge valve or the shut off valve after the drain.
Open first zone balance and purge or drain valve to let water flow out the hose. If zone valves are used, open the valves one
at a time manually. (NOTE: You should check valve manufacturer’s instruction prior to opening valves manually, so as not to
damage the valve.)
Manually operate fill valve regulator. When water runs out of the hose, while it’s connected to the balance and purge valve or
drain you will see a steady stream of water (without bubbles). Close balance and purge valve or drain to stop the water from
flowing. Disconnect the hose and connect it to next zone to be purged.
Repeat this procedure for additional zones (one at time).
For installations that incorporate standing iron radiation and systems with manual vents at the highest points: Follow the
above section and, starting with the nearest manual vent, open until water flows out. Then close vent. Repeat procedure, working your
way toward furthest air vent. It may be necessary to install a basket strainer in an older system where larger amounts of sediment may
be present. Annual cleaning of the strainer may be necessary.
Upon completion, make sure that the fill valve is in automatic position and each zone balance and purge or shut off is in an open
position and zone valves are positioned for automatic operation.
Use only inhibited propylene glycol solutions, specially formulated for hydronic systems. Ethylene glycol is toxic and can attack gaskets
and seals used in hydronic systems. Glycol mixtures should not exceed 50%.
1. Glycol for hydronic applications includes inhibitors that prevent it from attacking metallic system components. Make certain that the
system fluid is checked for the correct glycol concentration and inhibitor level.
2. The glycol solution should be tested at least once a year and as recommended by the glycol manufacturer.
3. Anti-freeze solutions expand more than water. For example a 50% by volume solution expands 4.8% in volume for a temperature
increase from 32° F to 180° F, while water expands 3% with the same temperature rise. Allowances must be made for this expansion in
the system design.
4. A 30% mixture of glycol will result in 15% BTU output loss and a 5% increase in head against system circulator.
5. A 50% mixture of glycol will result in 30% BTU output loss and a 50% increase in head against system circulator.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
24
It is highly recommended that you carefully follow the glycol manufacturer’s concentrations, expansion requirements, and maintenance
recommendations (pH additive breakdown, inhibitor reduction, etc.) You must carefully figure the additional system friction loss, as well
as the reduction in heat transfer coefficients.

PART 7 – VENTING, COMBUSTION AIR, AND CONDENSATE REMOVAL
The boiler must be vented as detailed in this Venting Section. Ensure exhaust vent and intake piping complies with these instructions
regarding vent system. Inspect finished exhaust vent and intake piping thoroughly to ensure all joints are well secured, airtight, and
comply with all applicable code requirements, as well as with the instructions provided in this manual. Failure to properly install the vent
system will result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
A. GENERAL
This boiler is certified as a “Category IV” appliance, and requires a special venting system. The vent system will operate with a positive
pressure in the pipe. Exhaust gases must be piped directly outdoors using the vent materials and rules outlined in these instructions.
Do not connect vent connectors serving appliances vented by natural draft into any portion of mechanical draft systems operating under
positive pressure. Follow the venting instructions below carefully. Failure to do so will result in substantial property damage, severe
personal injury, or death.
1. Installation should be made in accordance with the regulations of the Authority Having Jurisdiction, local code authorities, and utility
companies which pertain to this type of water heating equipment.
2. Install the venting system in accordance with these instructions and with the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54,
CAN/CGA B149, and/or applicable provisions of local building codes.
3. This boiler must be vented with materials, components, and systems listed and approved for Category IV appliances.
Exhaust vent and intake pipes are to be piped separately, and MUST exit from the same side of the building to ensure safe, correct
boiler operation. This boiler cannot share a common exhaust or intake with multiple appliances. Failure to follow this instruction will
result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
NOTE: To avoid contamination often contained in indoor air, it is best to pipe all intake combustion air directly to the outdoors.
Improper seating of vent pipe gaskets can cause eventual gasket failure and exhaust gas leakage. Ensure the exhaust vent pipe is
properly beveled and seated before insertion into the flue adapter. Failure to do so could result in property damage, severe personal
injury, or death.
Due to the extreme flammability of most glues, cements, solvents, and primers used to join plastic exhaust vent and intake pipes,
explosive solvent vapors must be cleared from all vent piping before start-up. Avoid using excess cement or primer, as this may pool in
the vent pipes. Vent assemblies should be allowed to cure for a period of at least 8 hours before powering a connected appliance.
Failure to follow these instructions will result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death. It is the installers’
responsibility to understand the hazards associated with explosive solvents and take the necessary precautions to avoid these risks.


The exhaust and intake components installed with this boiler must be used for near boiler piping BEFORE transitioning to the
approved materials listed above. DO NOT REMOVE these installed components. Doing so WILL VOID appliance warranty.

PVC/CPVC pipe and fittings of the same diameter are considered interchangeable.

Do NOT use Foam Core Pipe in any portion of the exhaust piping from this boiler.

DO NOT connect PVC/CPVC to PP without an approved vent connector.

When installing AL29-4C vent piping, install a PVC-to-stainless adapter at the boiler vent connection, and at the termination
when using an HTP PVC termination kit. DO NOT mix AL-29-4C piping from different manufacturers unless using adapters
specifically designed for the purpose by the manufacturer.

*PVC-DWV for air intake applications ONLY.
Failure to follow these directions will result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
DO NOT mix components from different venting systems. The vent system could fail, causing leakage of flue products into the living
space. Use only the approved pipe and fitting materials, and primer and cement specifically designed for the material used, as listed in
Table 4. Failure to do so could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
Exhaust vent adaptors are not designed as load-bearing devices, and must not be used to support exhaust vent piping. All vent pipes
must be glued, properly supported, and the exhaust must be pitched a minimum of ¼” per foot back to the boiler to allow drainage of
condensate. Failure to properly support vent piping and follow the information in this statement could result in product damage, severe
personal injury, or death.
NOTE: The use of double-wall vent or insulated material for the combustion air inlet pipe is recommended in cold climates to prevent
the condensation of airborne moisture in the incoming combustion air.
C. REQUIREMENTS FOR INSTALLATION IN CANADA
1. Installations must be made with a vent pipe system certified to ULC-S636. IPEX is an approved vent manufacturer in Canada
supplying vent material listed to ULC-S636. Additionally you may use AL29-4C stainless steel venting to comply with Canadian
requirements.
2. The first three (3) feet of vent pipe from the boiler flue outlet must be readily accessible for visual inspection.
3. The components of the certified vent system must not be interchanged with other vent systems or unlisted pipe / fittings.
Cellular foam core piping may be used on air inlet piping only.
You must not use “B” vent in an exhaust application. “B” vent is for intake applications ONLY. Using “B” vent in an exhaust application
will result in serious injury or death.
D. EXHAUST VENT AND INTAKE PIPE LOCATION
NOTE: SEE ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS FOR MASSACHUSETTS IN THE BACK OF THIS MANUAL.
1. DETERMINE EXHAUST VENT LOCATION
a. The vent piping for this boiler is approved for zero clearance to combustible construction.
b. See illustration within this section of clearances for location of exit terminals of direct-vent venting systems.
c. This boiler vent system shall terminate at least 3 feet (0.9 m) above any forced air intake located within 10 ft (3 m). Note:
this does not apply to the combustion air intake of a direct-vent appliance.
d. Provide a minimum of 1 foot distance from any door, operable window, or gravity intake into any building.
e. Provide a minimum of 1 foot clearance from the bottom of the exhaust above the expected snow accumulation level. Snow
removal may be necessary to maintain clearance.
f. Provide 4 feet horizontal clearance from electrical meters, gas meters, gas regulators, relief equipment, exhaust fans and
inlets. In no case shall the exit terminal be above or below the aforementioned equipment unless the 4 foot horizontal distance
is maintained.
g. Do not locate exhaust over public walkways where condensate could drip and / or freeze and create a nuisance or hazard.
h. When adjacent to a public walkway, locate exit terminal at least 7 feet above grade.
i. Do not locate the exhaust directly under roof overhangs to prevent icicles from forming.
j. Provide 4 feet clearance from the inside corner of vertical walls, chimneys, etc., as well as horizontal corners created by roof
overhangs.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
44
2. DETERMINE INTAKE PIPE LOCATION
a. Provide 1 foot clearance from the bottom of the intake pipe and the level of maximum snow accumulation. Snow removal
may be necessary to maintain clearances.
b. Do not locate intake pipe in a parking area where machinery may damage the pipe.
c. When venting with a two pipe system, maximum distance between exhaust vent and intake pipe is 6 feet (1.8 m). Minimum
distance between exhaust vent and intake pipe on single boiler is 10” (0.255 m) center-to-center. Minimum distance between
exhaust vents and intake pipes on multiple boilers is 10” (0.255 m) center-to-center.
NOTE: Due to potential moisture build-up, sidewall venting may not be the preferred venting option. To save time and cost, carefully
consider venting installation and location.
The building owner is responsible for keeping the exhaust and intake terminations free of snow, ice, or other potential blockages, as
well as scheduling routine maintenance. Failure to keep the vent piping terminations clear and properly maintain the boiler could result
in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
For each floor containing bedroom(s), a carbon monoxide detector and alarm shall be placed in the living area outside the bedrooms,
as well as in the room that houses the boiler. Detectors and alarms shall comply with NFPA 720 (latest edition). Failure to comply with
requirements for detectors and alarms could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
3. Determine location of condensate piping:
This is a high efficiency boiler, and therefore produces condensate: a by-product of the combustion process. Condensate is nothing
more than water vapor derived from combustion products, and is similar to that of an automobile when it is initially started.
It is very important that the condensate line is sloped away from the boiler to a suitable drain. If the boiler condensate outlet is lower
than the drain, a condensate pump (kit p/n 554200 available from HTP) must be used.
NOTE: The use of ½” PVC or CPVC pipe are acceptable materials for condensate piping. Steel, brass, copper or other materials will be
subject to corrosion or deterioration. However, use materials approved by the authority having jurisdiction.
In the absence of other authority, PVC and CPVC pipe must comply with ASTM D1785 or D2845. Cement and primer must comply with
ASME D2564 or F493. For Canada, use CSA or ULC certified PVC or CPVC pipe, fittings, and cement. If pipe is used, deburr and
chamfer pipe to allow proper mating to the drainage assembly.
NOTE: To allow for proper drainage on long horizontal runs, a second line vent may be required and tubing size may need to increase
to 1”. Support of the condensate line may be necessary to avoid blockage of the condensate flow. Failure to add a second vacuum
break could result in condensate backup, improper boiler operation, and nuisance shutdowns.
NOTE: Check with your local gas company to determine if combustion condensate disposal is permitted in your area. In the state of
Massachusetts, condensate must be neutralized before entering a drain.
4. Condensate neutralization
Condensate from the boiler is slightly acidic with a pH of 3.2 - 4.5. To avoid long term damage to the drainage system and to meet local
code requirements, HTP recommends neutralizing the condensate with a Condensate Neutralizer Kit (p/n 7450P-218). The neutralizer
kit connects to the drain system and contains limestone chips that neutralize the pH level of the water vapor. The neutralizer kit should
be checked annually and the limestone chips replenished if necessary. When replacing the limestone chips, take care to ensure chips
are no smaller than ½” to avoid blockage in condensate piping (for piping details, refer to condensate neutralizer installation instruction.)
If using a condensate pump, select one approved for use with condensing boilers and furnaces. The pump should have an overflow
switch to prevent property damage from condensate spillage.
It is very important that the condensate piping be no smaller than ¾”. To prevent sagging and maintain pitch, condensate piping should
be supported with pipe supports, and pitched ¼” per foot to allow for proper drainage.
The condensate line must remain unobstructed, allowing free flow of condensate. If condensate freezes in the line, or if line is
obstructed in any other manner, condensate can exit from the tee, resulting in potential water damage to property.

E. EXHAUST VENT AND INTAKE PIPE SIZING
1. The exhaust vent and intake pipe size is 2" for the T50/80, 3” for the 80/140/199M, and 4” for the 399M.
2. The total equivalent length of exhaust vent and intake pipe should not exceed 85’.

Table 5 - *Friction loss for long radius elbow is 1 foot less. NOTE: Consult Polypropylene venting instructions for friction loss and pressure
drop equivalents.
b. For example: If the exhaust vent has two 90° elbows and 10 feet of PVC pipe we will calculate:
Exhaust Vent Equivalent Length = (2 x 5) + 10 = 20 feet.
Further, if the intake pipe has two 90° elbows, one 45° elbow and 10 feet of PVC pipe, the following calculation applies:
Intake Pipe Equivalent Length = (2 x 5) + 3 + 10 = 23 feet.
Finally, if a concentric vent kit is used we find:
Total Equivalent Length = 20 + 23 + 3 = 46 feet.
The total equivalent length is 46 feet, which is well below the maximum of 85 feet.
c. The exhaust vent and intake pipe are intended to penetrate the same wall or roof of the building.
d. Effort should be made to keep a minimum difference in equivalent length between the exhaust vent and intake pipe.
3. The minimum total equivalent length is 32 equivalent feet.
G. LONGER VENT RUNS
The maximum total equivalent length can be extended by increasing the diameter of both exhaust vent and intake pipe equally.
However, the transitions should begin a minimum of 15 equivalent feet from the boiler.
a. Transitions should always be made in vertical sections of pipe to prevent the condensate from pooling in the vent pipe.
b. The maximum equivalent length for increased diameter vent pipes is 125 feet.

H. EXHAUST VENT AND INTAKE PIPE INSTALLATION
1. Use only solid PVC or CPVC pipe, AL29-4C Stainless Steel, or a Polypropylene vent system approved for use with Category IV
appliances. FOAM CORE PIPING IS NOT APPROVED.
All joints of positive pressure vent systems must be sealed completely to prevent leakage of flue products into living space.
2. Remove all burrs and debris from joints and fittings.
3. When using PVC or CPVC pipe, all joints must be properly cleaned, primed, and cemented. Use only cement and primer approved
for use with the pipe material. Cement must conform to ASTM D2564 for PVC and ASTM F493 for CPVC pipe. NOTE: DO NOT
CEMENT POLYPROPYLENE PIPE.
4. Ensure the vent is located where it will not be exposed to prevailing winds.
5. In all roof venting applications, exhaust discharge must point away from the pitch of the roof.
6. To prevent water leakage, install adequate roof flashing where the pipe enters the roof.
7. Do not locate vent over public walkways, driveways, or parking lots. Condensate could drip and freeze, resulting in a slip hazard or
damage to vehicles and machinery.
8. Due to potential moisture build-up, sidewall venting may not be the preferred venting option. To save time and cost, carefully
consider venting installation and location.
9. Horizontal lengths of exhaust vent must slope back towards the boiler not less than ¼" per foot to allow condensate to drain from the
vent pipe.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
47
10. The exhaust vent must terminate where vapors cannot make accidental contact with people or pets, or damage shrubs or plants.
11. In vacant chimney applications, install and seal a rain cap over existing chimney openings.
12. All piping must be fully supported. Use pipe hangers at a minimum of 4 foot intervals to prevent sagging of the pipe where
condensate may form.
13. Do not use the boiler to support any piping.
14. A screened straight coupling is provided with the boiler for use as an outside exhaust termination.
15. A screened inlet air tee is provided with the boiler to be used as an outside intake termination.

PART 8 – GAS PIPING
Failure to follow all precautions in this section could result in fire, explosion, severe injury or death!
A. GAS CONNECTION
Connect the gas supply to the system following state and local plumbing codes.
The gas supply shall have a maximum inlet pressure of less than 14" water column (350 mm), ½ pound pressure (3.5 kPa), and a
minimum of 3.5" water column. The entire piping system, gas meter and regulator must be sized properly to prevent pressure drop
greater than 0.5" WC as stated in the National Fuel Gas Code. This information is listed on the rating plate.
NOTE: Maximum inlet gas pressure must not exceed 14” w.c. (3.5 kPa).
*NOTE: Installer must supply trap to meet local code requirements.
It is very important that you are connected to the type of gas noted on the rating plate. “LP” for liquefied petroleum, propane gas, or
“NAT” for natural or city gas. Prior to turning the gas on, all gas connections must be approved by the local gas supplier or utility, in
addition to the governing authority.
The nipple provided is ½” with a factory installed ¾” bell reducer. DO NOT REMOVE this ¾” by ½” bell reducer! It is mandatory that this
fitting is used for connection to a field fabricated drip leg per the National Fuel Gas Code. Ensure that the entire gas line to the
connection is no smaller than ¾”.
Do not attempt to support the weight of gas piping with the boiler or its accessories. The gas valve and blower will not support the
weight of the piping. Failure to follow this warning could result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
Once all inspections have been performed, the piping must be leak tested. If the leak test requirement is a higher test pressure than the
maximum gas inlet pressure, you must isolate the boiler from the gas line to continue leak testing. To do this, turn off the factory and
field-installed gas cocks. This will minimize the possibility of damaging the gas valve. Failure to do so may damage the gas valve. In the
event the gas valve is exposed to a pressure greater than ½ PSI, 14" water column, the gas valve must be replaced. Never use an
open flame (match, lighter, etc.) to check gas connections.
Refer to the table below to size the supply piping to minimize pressure drop between meter or regulator and unit.
Maximum capacity of pipe in cubic feet of gas per hour for gas pressures of .5 psi or less and a pressure drop of .3 inch water column:

Table 9
It is recommended that a soapy solution be used to detect leaks. Bubbles will appear on the pipe to indicate a leak is present. The gas
piping must be sized for proper flow and length of pipe to avoid excessive pressure drop. Both the gas meter and the gas regulator
must be properly sized for the total gas load. If you experience a pressure drop greater than 1" WC, the meter, regulator or gas line is
undersized or in need of service. You can attach a manometer to the incoming gas drip leg by removing the cap. The gas pressure
must remain between 3.5" WC and 14" WC during stand-by (static) mode and while in operating (dynamic) mode at full output.
If an in-line regulator is used, it must be a minimum of 10 feet from the boiler. It is very important that the gas line is properly
purged by the gas supplier or utility. Failure to properly purge the lines or improper line sizing will result in ignition failure.
This problem is especially noticeable in NEW LP installations and also in empty tank situations. This can also occur when a utility
company shuts off service to an area to provide maintenance to their lines. The gas valve must not be replaced with a conventional gas
valve under any circumstances. As an additional safety feature, the gas valve in this boiler has a flanged connection to the swirl plate
and blower.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
52
B. GAS PIPING
1. Run the gas supply line in accordance with all applicable codes.
2. Locate and install manual shutoff valves in accordance with state and local requirements.
3. In Canada, the Manual Shutoff must be identified by the installing contractor.
4. It is important to support gas piping as the boiler is not designed to structurally support a large amount of weight.
5. Purge all gas lines thoroughly to avoid start up issues with air in the lines.
6. Sealing compound (pipe dope) must be used and approved for gas connections. Apply sparingly, and only to the male threads. Care
must be taken when applying compound to prevent blockage or obstruction of gas flow which may affect the operation of the boiler.
Failure to apply pipe sealing compound as detailed above could result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
CSA / UL listed flexible gas connections can be used when installing the boiler. Flexible gas connections have different capacities and
must be sized correctly for the connected boiler firing rates. Consult with the flex line supplier to assure the line size is adequate for the
job. Follow local codes for proper installation and service requirements.
Never use an open flame (match or lighter) to check for gas leaks. Use a soapy solution to test connection. Failure to use a soapy
solution test or check gas connection for leaks could result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
Use a two-wrench method when tightening gas piping near the boiler and its piping connection: One wrench to prevent the boiler gas
line connection from turning; the second to tighten the adjacent piping. Failure to support the boiler gas piping connection could
damage the boiler beyond repair. Such damage IS NOT covered by warranty.
C. CHECK INLET GAS PRESSURE
The gas valve is equipped with an inlet gas pressure tap that can be used to measure the gas pressure to the boiler. To check gas
pressure, perform the steps listed below:
1. IMPORTANT! Before you connect to the inlet pressure, shut off the gas and electrical power to boiler.
2. Loosen the pressure tap with a small screwdriver. Refer to Figure 28 for location.
3. Each boiler is equipped with a needle valve that will accept a 5/16 ID hose to connect to a digital manometer or liquid gauge
designed to measure incoming pressure from 0-35” w.c. See Figure 28.
4. Turn on the gas and power up the boiler.
5. Put the boiler into manual test mode (details on test mode are in Part 12 Section D). In service mode, monitor pressure to assure it
does not drop below 1 inch from its idle reading. If gas pressure is out of range or pressure drop is excessive, contact the gas utility,
gas supplier, qualified installer, or service agency to determine correct action that is needed to provide proper gas pressure to the
boiler. If Gas Pressure is within normal range proceed to Step 6.
6. Exit test mode, then turn power off and shut off gas supply at the manual gas valve before disconnecting the hose from the gas
monitoring device. Tighten screw on the pressure tap and turn gas on. Check for leaks with soapy solution. Bubbles will appear on the
pipe to indicate a leak is present.
Ensure the pressure tap screw is properly tightened to prevent gas leaks. Failure to do so could cause substantial property damage,
severe personal injury, or death.
The gas piping must be sized for the proper flow and length of pipe to avoid pressure drop. The gas meter and regulator must be
properly sized for the total gas load. If you experience a pressure drop greater than 1" w.c. (.87 kPa), the meter, regulator or gas line
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
53
may be undersized or in need of service. You can attach a manometer to the incoming gas drip leg after removing the cap. The gas
pressure must remain between 3.5" (.87 kPa) and 14" (3.5 kPa) during stand-by (static) mode and while in operating (dynamic) mode.
If an in-line high gas pressure regulator is used, it must be installed a minimum of 10 feet from the boiler. It is very important
that the gas line is properly purged by the gas supplier or utility. Failure to properly purge the lines, or improper line sizing,
will result in ignition failure. This problem is especially noticeable in NEW LP installations and empty tank situations. This situation
can also occur when a utility company shuts off service to an area to provide maintenance to their lines. This gas valve must not be
replaced with a conventional gas valve under any circumstances.
DO NOT adjust or attempt to measure gas valve outlet pressure. The gas valve is factory-set for the correct outlet pressure and
requires no field adjustment. Attempts by the installer to adjust or measure the gas valve outlet pressure could result in damage to the
valve and cause substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
D. GAS VALVE
Figure 28 – LP-171-N
Do not do a gas conversion on this boiler without an officially approved conversion kit and instructions supplied by HTP. Failure to use a
conversion kit when converting the boiler to fire on Natural or LP gas will result in extremely dangerous burner operation, leading to fire,
explosion, severe injury or death.
Strain on the gas valve and fittings may result in vibration, premature component failure and gas leakage, and result in fire, explosion,
property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
54
Adjustments to the throttle screw or offset may only be made by a qualified gas technician using a calibrated combustion analyzer
capable of measuring CO2 and CO. Failure to follow this instruction could result in fire, explosion, property damage, severe personal
injury, or death.
PART 9 – FIELD WIRING
To avoid electrical shock, turn off all power to the boiler prior to opening an electrical box within the unit. Ensure the power remains off
while any wiring connections are being made. Failure to follow these instructions could result in component or product failure, serious
injury, or death. Such product failure IS NOT covered by warranty.
ELECTRICAL SHOCK HAZARD – Turn off electrical power supply at service entrance panel before making any electrical connections.
Failure to do so can cause severe personal injury or death.
o
Wiring must be N.E.C. Class 1. If original wiring supplied with the boiler must be replaced, use only UL Listed TEW 105 C wire or
equivalent. Boiler must be electrically grounded as required by National Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70 – Latest Edition.
In order to ease future servicing and maintenance, it is advised to label all wires. Wiring errors can cause improper and dangerous
operation. Failure to follow these instructions could result in property damage or personal injury.
A. INSTALLATION MUST COMPLY WITH:
National Electrical Code and any other national, state, provincial or local codes or regulations.
In Canada, CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code Part 1, and any local codes.
B. FIELD WIRING
The boiler box has a 24 volt terminal strip on the boiler cabinet and a 120 volt terminal strip enclosed in the electrical box. Each terminal
connection is clearly marked to assure correct installation.
C. LINE VOLTAGE WIRING
1. Connect 120 VAC power wiring to the line voltage terminal strip located inside the electric junction box, as shown in Figure 30.
2. Wire the Boiler Primary Circulator (P1) to the terminal strip. See wiring diagram in this section.
D. THERMOSTAT
1. Connect room thermostat or end switch.
2. Install thermostat on inside wall away from influences of drafts, hot or cold water pipes, lighting fixtures, television, sunrays or
fireplaces.
3. Thermostat anticipator (if applicable):
a. If connected directly to boiler, set for 0.1 amps.
b. If connected to relays or other devices, set to match total electrical power requirements of connected devices. See
specifications of the device and thermostat instructions for details.

PART 10 – FIELD WIRING – VISION 1 OPTION
Outdoor Sensor Function
The user can program the desired supply temperature based on the heat transmitter (baseboard, radiant floor, air handler) that will be
used in the installation. Once the outdoor sensor (light green wires) is connected to the control board, the water temperature of the
boiler will adjust to run the boiler more efficiently and provide greater comfort to the living space.
Connection Specification – Wire 22 AWG maximum to 100 feet or 18 AWG up to 150 feet. Length of wire run cannot exceed 150 feet.
Outdoor Sensor
NOTE: If the system requires a fixed operating temperature, the outdoor sensor is not required and should not be installed.
Connected in the boiler junction box, the Outdoor Sensor allows the control to automatically change the temperature going to the
central heating loop. Route wires from the boiler terminal strip to your outdoor sensor. Place the sensor preferably to the north or
northwest or to the side which will be affected by changing weather conditions outside. NOTE: Do not locate the sensor in direct
sunlight.
The wire to outdoor sensor must not be laid closer than 6’ to line voltage wiring (120/240 V) and must never be in the same conduit.
NOTE: For correct mounting procedures, follow instructions provided with the sensor.
NOTE: If sensor wires are located in an area with sources of potential electromagnetic interference (EMI), the sensor wires should be
shielded, or the wires routed in a grounded metal conduit. If using shielded cable, the shielding should be connected to the common
ground of the boiler.
Indirect Sensor Function
The maximum run time on priority function for the SuperStor Ultra Indirect Fired Water Heater is from 1-60 minutes. The water
temperature can only be adjusted when using a sensor (not a mechanical control). Temperature adjustments are from 95 to 185
degrees, plus a differential 1-18 degrees (Note: It is recommended that you do not exceed 5 minutes on the DHW pump post purge
cycle to avoid cooling down your DHW tank).
Indirect Sensor
The Indirect Sensor connects to the boiler main control. Route wires from the terminal strip to the sensor or the mechanical control,
Honeywell part # L4080b1395 (not included in Vision I Package), into the control well located in the front of the water heater. This will
allow the installer to control the temperature of the indirect from the boiler and give the indirect priority over the central heating circuit.
Once the indirect is satisfied, the boiler will then switch back to central heating if there is a call for heat. If not, the boiler will then shut
down.
Caution should be used to ensure neither of these terminals becomes connected to ground.
NOTE: If sensor wires are located in an area with sources of potential electromagnetic interference (EMI), the sensor wires should be
shielded, or the wires routed in a grounded metal conduit. If using shielded cable, the shielding should be connected to the common
ground of the boiler.
Failure to use the correct sensor may result in tank temperature being either above or below set point, and could result in decreased
performance, substantial property damage, or heightened risk of injuries due to scalds.
Indirect Circulator (P2) Program Function
The Indirect Circulator Program Function will automatically start when the water heater sensor reads a call for heat. The installer can
also program the post purge function on the circulator. The post purge circulator function ranges from 1-30 minutes.
Indirect Circulator (P2)
The Indirect Circulator connects to the boiler terminal strip. Run wire to the SuperStor Ultra Indirect circulating pump. The purple wire is
the neutral lead and the pink wire is the hot. This will supply 120 volts directly to the water boiler circulator.
Fault Code Alarm Output
If there is a lockout fault present in the boiler control, a 120 volt output is activated. This is useful when you have a remote display that
will notify you of a fault condition, or if you have auxiliary equipment that needs to shut down in the event of a lockout.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
58
Fault Code Alarm Function
Connect the fault annunciator or lights to the alarm output on the boiler terminal strip and the incoming neutral line in the junction box.
NOTE: The annunciator or light must be rated for 120 volt AC. A relay may be employed to use devices with ratings other than 120 volt
AC.
Do not tie neutrals or hot wire leads to any other wires. Go directly from the boiler controller to the circulator.
Connection Specification – Wire 18 AWG maximum. Length of wire run cannot exceed 100 feet.
PART 11 – START-UP PREPARATION
Thoroughly clean and flush any system that has used glycol before installing the boiler. Provide the customer with a material safety
data sheet (MSDS) on the fluid used.
A. CHECK/CONTROL WATER CHEMISTRY
Chemical imbalance of your water can cause severe damage to your boiler and associated equipment, and may also affect efficiency.
You may have to have your water quality professionally analyzed to determine whether you need to install a water softener. It is
important that the water chemistry on both the domestic hot water and central heating sides are checked before installing the boiler, as
water quality will affect the reliability of the system. Outlined below are those water quality parameters which need to be met in order for
the system to operate efficiently for many years. Failure of a heat exchanger due to lime scale build-up on the heating surface,
low pH or other imbalance IS NOT covered by the warranty.
To assure extended service life, it is recommended to test water quality prior to installation. Listed below are some guidelines.
Do not use petroleum-based cleaning or sealing compounds in boiler system. Damage to elastomer seals and gaskets in system could
occur, resulting in substantial property damage.
Sodium less than 20 mGL
Water pH between 6.0 and 8.0
1. Maintain boiler water pH between 6.0 and 8.0. Check with litmus paper or have chemically analyzed by water treatment company.
2. If pH differs from above, consult local water treatment company for treatment needed.
Hardness less than 7 grains
Consult local water treatment companies for unusually hard water areas (above 7 grains hardness).
Chlorine concentration less than 100 ppm
1. Filling with chlorinated fresh water should be acceptable since drinking water chlorine levels are typically less than 5 ppm.
2. Do not use the boiler to directly heat swimming pool or spa water.
3. Do not fill boiler or operate with water containing chlorine in excess of 100 ppm.
Clean system to remove sediment
1. You must thoroughly flush the system (without boiler connected) to remove sediment. The high-efficiency heat exchanger can be
damaged by buildup or corrosion due to sediment.
2. For zoned systems, flush each zone separately through a purge valve. (If purge valves and isolation valves are not already installed,
install them to properly clean the system.)
3. Flush system until water runs clean and you are sure piping is free of sediment.
Test/replace freeze protection fluid
1. For systems using freeze protection fluids, follow fluid manufacturer’s instructions to verify inhibitor level and that other fluid
characteristics are satisfactory.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
59
2. Freeze protection fluid must be replaced periodically due to degradation of inhibitors over time. Follow all fluid manufacturer
instructions.
NOTE: Boiler failure due to improper water chemistry is not covered by warranty.
B. FREEZE PROTECTION (WHEN USED)
NEVER use automotive or standard glycol antifreeze, or ethylene glycol made for hydronic systems. System water, including additives,
must be non-toxic, having a toxicity rating or Class of 1, as listed in Clinical Toxicology of Commercial Products. Use only freezeprevention fluids certified by fluid manufacturer as suitable for use with stainless steel boilers, verified in fluid manufacturer literature.
Thoroughly clean and flush any system that has used glycol before installing the new boiler. Provide boiler owner with a material safety
data sheet (MSDS) on the fluid used.
1. Determine freeze protection fluid quantity using total system water content, following fluid manufacturer’s instructions. Remember to
include expansion tank water content.
2. NOTE: Local codes may require back flow preventer or actual disconnect from city water supply.
3. When using freeze protection fluid with automatic fill, install a water meter to monitor water makeup. Freeze protection fluid may leak
before the water begins to leak, causing concentration to drop, reducing the freeze protection level.
C. FILL AND TEST WATER SYSTEM
Ensure the boiler is full of water before firing the burner. Failure to do so will damage the boiler. Such damage IS NOT covered by
warranty, and could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
1. Fill system only after ensuring the water meets the requirements of this manual.
2. Close manual and automatic air vents and boiler drain valve.
3. Fill to correct system pressure. Correct pressure will vary with each application.
a. Typical cold water fill pressure for a residential system is 12 psi.
b. Pressure will rise when boiler is turned on and system water temperature increases. Operating pressure must never exceed
25 psig.
4. At initial fill and during boiler startup and testing, check system thoroughly for any leaks. Repair all leaks before proceeding further.
Eliminate all system leaks. Continual fresh make-up water will reduce boiler life. Minerals can build up in the heat exchanger, reducing
heat transfer, overheating heat exchanger, causing heat exchanger failure, and possibly resulting in property damage, severe personal
injury, or death.
5. The system may have residual substances that could affect water chemistry. After the system has been filled and leak tested, verify
water pH and chlorine concentrations are acceptable.
D. PURGE AIR FROM WATER SYSTEM
It is important that you purge the system of air to avoid damage to the boiler. Make sure that this procedure is followed before firing the
boiler.
To purge air from system:
a. Connect a hose to the purge valve and route hose to an area where water can drain and be seen.
b. Close the boiler or system isolation valve between the purge valve and fill connection to the system.
c. Close zone isolation valves.
d. Open quick-fill valve on cold water makeup line.
e. Open purge valve.
f. One zone at a time, open the isolation valves. Allow water to run through the zone, pushing out the air. Run until no
noticeable air flow is present. Close the zone isolation valves and proceed with the next zone. Follow this procedure until all
zones are purged.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
60
g. Close the quick-fill water valve and purge valve and remove the hose. Open all isolation valves. Watch that system pressure
rises to correct cold-fill pressure.
h. After the system has operated for a while, eliminate any residual air by using the manual air vents located throughout the
system.
i. If purge valves are not installed in system, open manual air vents in system one at a time, beginning with lowest floor. Close
vent when water squirts out. Repeat with remaining vents.
j. Refill to correct pressure.
E. CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS
Before starting the boiler, and during initial operation, smell near the floor and around the boiler for gas odorant or any unusual odor.
Remove boiler front door and smell interior of boiler enclosure. Do not proceed with startup if there is any indication of a gas leak.
Repair any leak at once.
Propane boiler only – Your propane supplier mixes an odorant with the propane to make its presence detectable. In some instances,
the odorant can face, and the gas may no longer have an odor. Before startup (and periodically thereafter), have the propane supplier
verify the correct odorant level in the gas.
F. CHECK THERMOSTAT CIRCUIT(S)
1. Disconnect the two external wires connected to the boiler thermostat terminals (low voltage terminal strip terminals 5 and 6).
2. Connect a voltmeter across these two incoming wires. Close each thermostat, zone valve and relay in the external circuit one at a
time and check the voltmeter reading across the incoming wires.
3. There should NEVER be a voltage reading.
4. If a voltage does occur under any condition, check and correct the external wiring. (This is a common problem when using 3-wire
zone valves.)
5. Once the external thermostat circuit wiring is checked and corrected if necessary, reconnect the external thermostat circuit wires to
boiler low voltage terminal strip. Allow the boiler to cycle.
G. CHECK CONDENSATE REMOVAL
1. This a high efficiency condensing boiler, therefore, the unit has a condensation drain. Condensate is nothing more than water vapor,
derived from combustion products, similar to an automobile when it is initially started. The condensation is slightly acidic (typically with
pH of 3 to 5) and must be piped with the correct materials. Never pipe the condensate using steel, copper, brass or other materials that
will be subject to corrosion. Plastic PVC or CPVC pipe are the only approved materials. A condensate filter, if required by local
authorities, can be made up of lime crystals marble or phosphate chips that will neutralize the condensate. This may be done by the
installer or you may purchase a condensate neutralizer from HTP (p/n 7450P-218).
2. The boiler is equipped with a ¾” pipe connection that runs the condensation line to a local drain. It is very important that the
condensate line is sloped away from the boiler and down to a suitable inside drain. If the condensate outlet is lower than the drain, you
must use a condensate removal pump, available at HTP (#554200). This pump is equipped with two leads that can be connected to an
alarm or another type of warning device to alert residents of a condensate overflow, which, if not corrected, could cause property
damage.
3. The boiler is equipped with an internal vent on the top plug connection to assure adequate flow of condensate. This vent should
never be blocked.
4. If a long horizontal run is used, it may be necessary to create a second vent to prevent a vacuum lock in the condensate line. Do not
expose the condensate to freezing temperatures.
5. Do not expose the condensate to freezing temperatures.
6. It is very important you support the condensation line to assure proper drainage.
H. FINAL CHECKS BEFORE STARTING BOILER
1. Read Startup Procedures within this manual for proper steps to start boiler. (See Startup Report to record steps for future reference.)
2. Verify the boiler and system are full of water and all system components are correctly set for operation.
3. Fill condensate trap with water.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
61
4. Verify electrical connections are correct and securely attached.
5. Inspect exhaust vent and intake pipe for signs of deterioration from corrosion, physical damage or sagging.
PART 12 – START-UP PROCEDURE
FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY READ BEFORE OPERATING
1. This boiler does not have pilot. It is equipped with an ignition device which automatically lights the burner. Do not try to light the
burner by hand.
2. BEFORE OPERATING: smell all around the boiler area for gas. Be sure to smell next to the floor because some gas is heavier than
air and will settle on the floor.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS





Do not try to light any boiler.
Do not touch any electric switch; do not use any phone in your building.
Immediately call your gas supplier from a neighbor's phone. Follow the gas suppliers' instructions.
If you cannot reach your gas supplier, call the fire department.
Turn off gas shutoff valve (located outside of the boiler) so that the handle is crosswise to the gas pipe. If the handle will not
turn by hand, don't try to force or repair it, call a qualified service technician. Force or attempted repair may result in a fire or
explosion.
4. Do not use this boiler if any part has been under water. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the boiler and to
replace any part of the control system and any gas control that has been damaged.
5. The boiler shall be installed so the gas ignition system components are protected from water (dripping, spraying, rain, etc.) during
boiler operation and service (circulator replacement, condensate trap, control replacement, etc.)
Failure to follow these instructions could result in property damage, serious personal injury, or death.
A. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Remove boiler cover. If you smell gas, STOP. Follow listed safety instructions. If you do not smell gas, follow the next steps.
1. Turn on all electric power to boiler.
2. If desired, adjust the temperature set point of the boiler. The factory default
o
setting is 180 F. If changes are necessary follow “Adjusting the Set point” in
this section.
3. Set the thermostat to the desired setting.
4. If the boiler fails to start, refer to the “Troubleshooting” section in the back of
this manual.
B. ADJUSTING THE SET POINT
Before changing the temperature from the factory setting of 180 degrees, you must make sure that none of the thermostats are calling
for heat. The controller will not memorize a program setting while in a heating cycle.
To adjust the boiler temperature simply press in the {S3} key for three seconds until you see a flashing (C) then an alternate value of
(180). This number is the factory set point of the unit, which is 180 degrees. To change the temperature, simply push either {S1} to
decrease or {S2} to increase the boiler temperature. The temperature of the boiler can be set as low as 50 Degrees or as high 180
Degrees. These ranges are your minimum and maximum boiler temperature ranges.
In addition to changing the temperature, you may also change three more settings in this model: 1. Boiler differential, 2. Indirect setting
(with Vision System option), and 3. Celsius to Fahrenheit measurement. Press {S3} to get to next value. The boiler differential setting
will appear in the display ch and alternating value of 30. This allows the installer to adjust the activation of the burner based on the
differential temperature setting of the boiler. The burner will not start until the outlet water temperature reaches a temperature equal to
the setting for the boiler, minus the differential EX: The boiler is set to heat at 180°F degrees and the differential is set at 30°F. The
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
62
burner will not start until the outlet temperature of the system reaches 149°F degrees (180° – 30°F = 150°F). To adjust, press either
{S1} (Decrease Value) or {S2} (Increase Value) Ranges 5°F to 30°F.
Press {S3} again and you will see the Indirect Setting de and an alternative value of 119 (with Vision Systems option). To adjust,
press either {S1} (Decrease Value) or {S2} (Increase Value).
The final adjustment in this mode is the Fahrenheit to Celsius measurement. Press {S3} again and you will see t and alternating value
of F. To change value, press {S1} or {S2} to choose the correct measurement.
C. STATUS MENU
Installers are also able to check the current status of boiler parameters by pressing {S4} for 3 seconds. Once activated, the display will
show |d1| alternating value of the actual outlet temperature. Actual values are displayed for each function. To view the next value, press
{S4}. Listed below are the values which can be displayed. These values cannot be changed. To exit this menu, press {S3} to resume
normal operation.

D. TEST MODE
This function is intended to simplify the gas valve adjustment if needed. Listed below are the recommended limits on each boiler and
the combustion settings. Automatic modulation does not take place when the controller is in Test mode, only temperature limitation
based on the boiler central heating set point. The user will be allowed to increase or decrease the fan speed by pressing in either {S1}
or {S2}.
To activate Test mode, press {S2} and {S3} together for 1 second. Once activated, you will see {Ser} in the display and the fan speed
(shown in a multiple of 10). The measurement of the combustion levels should always be taken at the highest and lowest fan speed.
After 10 minutes, the Test mode stops automatically. To exit Test mode, press {S1} and {S2} together for 1 second.

PART 13 – START-UP PROCEDURES WITH VISION 1 OPTION
The Vision I option allows the user to have one temperature for central heating and another temperature for the SuperStor Ultra Indirect
Fired Water Heater. This enables the user to increase the temperature supplied to the indirect water heater by prioritizing flow at a
higher temperature than may be needed for the central heating circuits (this will require two separate circulators). Once the indirect
water heater is satisfied, the Vision I system will switch back to the central heating circuit to continue to heat the living space at a
temperature based on outside temperature. This gives you a higher comfort level and further increases boiler efficiency.
A. PROGRAMMING THE VISION I OPTION
The Vision I option allows the installer to set the system limits and heat curve for the boiler. These system limits should not be changed
by the user. For future reference, it is important to document your settings within this manual after you program the system parameters.
B. VISION 1 PROGRAM ACCESS
Press and hold {S3} and {S4} simultaneously for three seconds to begin. You will notice that the display will change to |000|. Then,
press down {S1} until you see |925| on the display. This is the pass code. Press and hold {S3} for 1 second to confirm the pass code. If
the pass code is entered incorrectly, the controller program function will be cancelled and the control returns to normal operation. If the
code is entered correctly, the control will switch off the gas valve and purge fan while showing a solid |---| in the display. The display will
then show a |1| alternating to |de|. This first function verifies that the control will address the requirements of the indirect water heater.
C. VISION 1 PROGRAM NAVIGATION
Next you will have to press {S3} to move through each function. To increase or decrease a value, you will need to press either {S1} or
{S2} to change the default values. If there is no key action for 1 minute, the display returns to normal operation. Changes are effective
immediately but not directly stored until the {S4} key is pressed down for 3 seconds then the new values are stored. Listed below are
the varieties of functions the installer can program into the Vision I System.
NOTE: The boiler cannot be programmed when there is a call for heat. See Table 14 to set outdoor reset curve.

PART 14 – TROUBLESHOOTING
A. ERROR CODE
An error code may occur in the installation of the boiler. This condition may lead to a lock out condition of the controller, which will need
to be manually reset through the {S4}. These temporary codes will help the installer correct the problem before going into a lock out
condition, which will require a manual reset.
B. BOILER ERROR
1. When an error condition occurs the controller will display an error code on the display module.
2. These error codes and several suggested corrective actions are included in Table 15.
3. In the case of E00, E13, and E14 this error, if uncorrected, will go into a fault condition as described is Paragraph C (Boiler Fault).
C. BOILER FAULT
1. When a fault condition occurs the controller will illuminate the red “fault” indication light and display a fault code in the format
(Example: |F00|) on the display module.
2. Note the fault code and refer to Table 16 for an explanation of the fault code along with several suggestions for corrective actions.
3. Press the reset key to clear the fault and resume operation. Be sure to observe the operation of the unit to prevent a recurrence of
the fault.
When servicing or replacing any components of this boiler be certain that:

The gas is off.

All electrical power is disconnected.
LP-185 Rev. 3.2.15
66
When servicing or replacing parts that are in direct contact with boiler water, be certain that:

There is no pressure in the boiler. (Pull the release on the relief valve. Do not rely on the pressure gauge reading.)

The boiler water is not hot.

The electrical power is off.
DO NOT USE THIS BOILER IF ANY PART HAS BEEN SUBMERGED IN WATER. Immediately call a qualified service technician. The
boiler MUST BE replaced if it has been submerged. Attempting to operate an boiler that has been submerged could create numerous
harmful conditions, such as a potential gas leakage causing a fire and/or explosion, or the release of mold, bacteria, or other harmful
particulates into the air. Operating a previously submerged boiler could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
NOTE: Boiler damage due to flood or submersion is considered an Act of God, and IS NOT covered under product warranty.
This boiler has wire function labels on all internal wiring. Observe the position of each wire before removing it. Wiring errors may cause
improper and dangerous operation. Verify proper operation after servicing.
If overheating occurs or the gas supply fails to shut off, do not turn off electrical power to the circulating pump. This may aggravate the
problem and increase the likelihood of boiler damage. Instead, shut off the gas supply to the boiler at the gas service valve.

PART 15 – MAINTENANCE
A. MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
Periodic maintenance should be performed once a year by a qualified service technician to assure that all the equipment is in safe
efficient operation. The owner can make necessary arrangements with a qualified heating contractor for periodic maintenance of the
boiler. Installer must also inform the owner that the lack of proper care and maintenance of the boiler may result in a hazardous
condition. The installer should discuss the contents of the User's Information Manual with the owner.
BEFORE EACH HEATING SEASON a trained and qualified service technician should perform the inspections and maintenance
procedures as identified in this manual. In addition, the maintenance and care of the boiler outlined in this manual must be performed to
assure maximum efficiency and reliability. Failure to do so could result in substantial property damage, serious personal injury, or
death.
The combustion chamber insulation in this product contains ceramic fiber material. Ceramic fibers can be converted to cristobalite in
very high temperature applications. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has concluded, “Crystalline silica inhaled
in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is carcinogenic to humans (Group 1).”

Avoid breathing dust and contact with skin and eyes.

Use NIOSH certified dust respirator (N95). This type of respirator is based on the OSHA requirements for cristobalite at the
time this document was written. Other types of respirators may be needed depending on job site conditions. Current NIOSH
recommendations can be found on the NIOSH website at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/homepage.html. NIOSH approved
respirators, manufacturers, and phone numbers are also listed on this website.

Wear long-sleeved, loose fitting clothing, gloves, and eye protection.

Apply enough water to the combustion chamber to prevent dust.

Wash potentially contaminated clothes separately from other clothing. Rinse clothes washer thoroughly.
NIOSH stated First Aid.

Eye: Irrigate immediately.

C. COMBUSTION CHAMBER COIL CLEANING INSTRUCTIONS
*Before beginning this procedure, you must have on hand the following items:

A nylon, stainless or brass brush (not steel)

A liquid calcium and lime deposit remover

Gloves, eye protection
1. Shut down the boiler by using the following steps:
a. Close the gas valve, shut down the unit and wait for the unit to be cool to the touch.
b. Disconnect the condensate hose from the outside connection, (not from the boiler side), so flow can be observed.
c. Disconnect connections from the gas valve, spark electrode and flame rectification probe and combustion blower.
d. Remove the (4) screws on the aluminum ½” NPT connector on the gas valve.
e. Disconnect the wiring connected to the combustion blower motor.
f. Remove the (6) 10MM nuts from the burner plate assembly to access the coils.
g. Pull the entire burner plate assembly with blower still attached towards you, while removing or pushing aside any wiring to
allow the removal of the assembly.
2. Using a spray bottle filled with calcium and lime deposit remover, spray liberally on the coils, making sure the solution penetrates and
funnels down through the condensate hose. If the condensate hose is blocked, let the chemical penetrate for at least 15 minutes or until
it drains.
3. Use the nylon, stainless or brass brush (do not use steel) and scrub coils to remove any buildup. Then vacuum the debris from the
coils. WARNING: Follow above precautions.
4. Spray the coils with clear water, making sure to confine the spray to the area being cleaned (try to avoid getting the back ceramic
wall of the unit wet). Flush the combustion chamber with fresh water. At this point, the boiler should be ready to power back up.
Before powering up the boiler follow the steps below:
a. Re-install the burner assembly.
b. Replace the (6) 10MM nuts to the burner plate.
c. Re-connect all wiring connections.
e. Replace the (4) screws on the aluminum ½” NPT connector on the gas valve. Turn the gas back on. (IMPORTANT: CHECK
FOR GAS LEAKS.)
f. Re-set thermostats (IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE EXHAUST VENT IS NO LONGER BLOCKED!)
g. Turn the boiler back on and observe condensate flow.
h. Re-connect the condensate hose to the outside connection.
Do not use solvents to clean any of the burner components. The components could be damaged, resulting in unreliable or unsafe
operation. Failure to do so could result in death or serious injury.

MAINTENANCE REPORT
In unusually dirty or dusty conditions, care must be taken to keep boiler cabinet door in place at all times. Failure to do so VOIDS
WARRANTY!
Allowing the boiler to operate with a dirty combustion chamber will hurt operation. Failure to clean the heat exchanger as needed by the
installation location could result in boiler failure, property damage, personal injury, or death. Such product failures ARE NOT covered
under warranty.
The boiler requires minimal periodic maintenance under normal conditions. However, in unusually dirty or dusty conditions, periodic
vacuuming of the cover to maintain visibility of the display and indicators is recommended.
Periodic maintenance should be performed once a year by a qualified service technician to assure that all the equipment is operating
safely and efficiently. The owner should make necessary arrangements with a qualified heating contractor for periodic maintenance of
the boiler. Installer must also inform the owner that the lack of proper care and maintenance of the boiler may result in a hazardous
condition.
