GENERAL INFORMATION
PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE INSTALLING WATER HEATER
U.S Boiler Company, Inc. – (herein called the Company) intends that this Alliance SL™ Indirect-Fired Water
Heater be used as a separate zone to a heating system boiler.
This appliance is designed to heat water by circulating water from the boiler through the internal coil in the
tank. We specifically do not warrant this tank for high temperature applications such as wood stoves or
steam producing systems. Such use of this product will automatically void the warranty.
The design anticipates the proper installation and care in use of the product. There is risk of property
damage and personal injury inherent in the use of any hot water system. The Company cannot supervise
the installation and therefore makes it a specific condition of the warranty that the customer will supervise
the installation and use of this product to be sure they are performed in accordance with safe guidelines
and proper local or national codes.
Generalized instructions and procedures cannot anticipate all situations. For this reason, only qualified
installers should perform the installation. A qualified installer is a person who has licensed training and a
working knowledge of the applicable codes, regulations, tools, equipment and methods necessary for safe
installation of a boiler system and an indirect water heater.
An installation checklist has been provided to help the customer ensure that all procedures for a safe
installation have been followed.
If questions regarding installation arise, check with your local plumbing and electrical inspectors for proper
procedures and codes. Local codes take a precedent over instructions in this manual.

For protection against excessive pressures and temperatures in this water heater, install temperature
-and-pressure protective equipment by local codes, but not less than a combination temperature-
and-pressure relief valve certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains
periodic inspection of production of listed equipment of materials, as meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22-1971. This valve must be marked with maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked maximum allowable working pressure of the water heater (150psi). Install the valve into the opening provided and marked for this purpose in the water heater, and orient it or provide the tubing so that any discharge from the valve will exit only within 6 inches above, or at any distance below the structural floor and cannot contact any live electrical parts. The discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under any circumstances.
q CAUTION: A relief valve is designed to discharge excessively hot water. THE CUSTOMER IS
RESPONSIBLE TO PROTECT PROPERTY AND PERSONNEL FROM HARM WHEN THE VALVE FUNCTIONS.
q Install the T&P provided on hot water outlet of tank as shown in Figures 1 and 2.
q Care must be taken to be sure that the stem of the pressure-and-temperature relief valve is
immersed in the water within the top 6 inches of the tank.
q The drain line from the relief valve must not be concealed or blocked and must be protected from
freezing.
q WARNING: IF THE WATER SUPPLY IS FROM A WELL, OR KNOWN TO HAVE HARD WATER, IT
IS RECOMMENDED TO USE A PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE IN THE COLD WATER LINE AS WELL AS A T&P VALVE IN THE HOT WATER LINE.
E. INSTALLING THE REMOVABLE HEAT EXCHANGER
q Heat exchanger is installed at the factory except for the AL119SL which is shipped loose. The
following is provided for servicing or removing the heat exchanger.
q Insert heat exchanger with plastic o-ring housing and align holes in cover plate with holes in flange and plastic o-ring housing.
q WARNING: Plastic o-ring housing must be properly installed. (See Figure 3). Failure to do this will void the warranty.
• Insert and secure the bolts to the nuts one at a time in the following manner:
• Place the nut beneath the flange opening.
• Hold the nut in place with one hand – insert the bolt with the other.
• Thread the bolt into the nut and tighten in proper order.
NOTE: Be sure to place bolts in all of the openings.
q Heat exchanger connections are 3/4” male threaded fittings, except for the AL119SL which has 1 inch male threaded fittings.
q Connect the supply line (from the boiler) to the “Hx In” fittings of the heat exchanger. It is
recommended to use a union as per Figures 1 and 2.
q Connect the return line (back to the boiler) to the “Hx Out” fittings on the flange of the heat
exchanger. It is recommended to use a union as per Figures 1 and 2.
q WARNING: Plastic o-ring housing must be installed properly (See Figure 3) to prevent corrosive action. Failure to do this will void the warranty. Must use new o-ring if replaced or removed.
F. WATER SUPPLY CONNECTIONS
q
WARNING: Some local codes mandate the use of a backflow preventer or check valve or
pressure-reducing valve. An adequate expansion tank (or other adequate means) must be
installed to prevent pressure build up or damage from thermal expansion when a check valve or backflow preventer or pressure-reducing valve is used. Failure to do so could result in tank leakage and therefore void the warranty. (See Figures 1 and 2 for proper location)
q All water supply fittings on this heater are brass – do not over tighten or strip threads.
q It is recommended to use a union as per Figures 1 and 2.
q Do not apply heat directly to the cold-water inlet as it is made of plastic and will melt.
5
G.BOILER SUPPLY CONNECTIONS
q WARNING: Boiler temperature must be controlled by the boiler high limit not to exceed 200°. Failure to do so will create a hazardous installation and void the applicable limited warranties.
q All water supply fittings on this heater are brass – do not over tighten or strip threads.
q It is recommended to use a union as per Figures 1 and 2.
NOTE: Be sure to connect Boiler Supply Line (from the boiler) to the “HX in” fitting and Boiler
Return Line (to the boiler) to the “HX Out” fitting.
H.FILLING THE HEATER
q Check that the temperature-and-pressure relief valve has been properly installed (mandatory
requirement).
q Completely close the drain valve.
q Open the highest hot water faucet to allow air to escape from piping.
q Open the valve to the cold-water inlet and allow the heater and piping system to completely fill, as
indicated by a steady flow of water from the open faucet.
I. flushing THE HEATER
q Upon installation, there is a possibility that the user may experience a ‘silky’ feel to the hot water. This ‘silky’ water may be accompanied by a slight odor. This sensation is due to the cement lining going through its normal wet curing process.
During the wet curing process, the pH level of the hot water may increase slightly. This temporary increase in pH is not harmful to humans or domestic animals and typically lasts a few days, but could last slightly longer in applications with low hot water usage. To reduce the likelihood that the user will encounter these sensations, it is recommended that the water heater is properly flushed.
q Flush the water heater by opening the hot water faucet(s) and allow the water to run until it goes cold (Note: It may take a minute or two for the hot water to reach the faucet). Repeat the process until the ‘silky’ sensation and/or odor is no longer detected.
J. TPI THERMOSTAT INSTALLATION
q Attaching TPI Thermostat to tank:
Place hole in back of TPI thermostat over immersion well. TPI thermostat should fit flush against the tank without immersion well protruding beyond cover of TPI case. Use self-tapping screw provided (Screw A) to attach TPI directly to the Alliance SL tank. (See TPI Diagram 2)
q Inserting the Temperature Sensor:
Slide temperature sensor all the way into the immersion well – until it contacts the end.
(See TPI Diagram 2)
q The sensor will measure temperature adequately by resting against the bottom of the immersion well.
(Note: Sensor does NOT need to make intimate contact with entire well surface to work properly)
q CAUTION: Sensor is soldered directly to TPI. DO NOT BEND SHARPLY OR OVERWORK.
K.TPI WIRING CONTROLS
NOTE: THCONTROL ELECTRONICS MUST BE POWERED WITH 24VAC.
q Incoming 24VAC power must be connected to 24VAC connectors on the bottom right corner of TPI Thermostat. (See TPI Diagram 3)
