Water System Piping

Piping Installation

Piping. fittings. and valves should be installed according to the installation drawing (Figure 6). If the indoor installation area is subject to freezing temperatures. the water piping must be protected by insulation.

Water supply pressure should not exceed 80% of the working pressure of the water heater. The working pressure is stated on the water heater's data plate. If this occurs a pressure limiting valve with a bypass may need to be installed in the cold water supply line. This should be placed on the supply to the entire house in order to maintain equal hot and cold water pressures.

Important: Heat cannot be applied to the water fittings on the heater as they may contain nonmetallic parts If solder connections are used. solder the pipe to the adapter before attaching the adapter to the hot and cold water fittings

Important: Always use a good grade of joint compound and be certain that all fittings are drawn up tight

Install the water piping and fittings as shown in the Figure 6 Connect the cold water supply (3/4 NPT) to the fitting marked '%" Connect the hot water supply (3/4 NPT) to the fitting marked "H"

Important: Some models may contain energy saving heat traps to prevent the circulation of hot water within the pipes Do not remove these inserts The installation of unions in both the hot and cold water supply lines are recommended for ease of removing the water heater for service or replacement The manufacturer of this water heater recommends installing a tempering valve in the domestic hot water line as shown in Figures 7 and 8 These valves reduce the point-of-use temperature of the hot water by mixing cold and hot water and are readily available Contact a licensed plumber or the local plumbing authority

If installing the water heater in a closed water system. install a relief valve or expansion tank in the cold water line as specified under "Closed System/Thermal Expansion" Install a shut off valve in the cold water inlet line It should be located close to the water heater and be easily accessible Know the location of this valve and how to shut off the water to the heater

Closed System/Thermal Expansion

Periodic discharge of the temperature and pressure relief valve may be due to thermal expansion in a closed water supply system. The water utility supply meter may contain a check valve. backfiow preventer or water pressure reducing valve. This will create a closed water system. During the heating cycle of the water heater. the water expands causing pressure inside the water heater to increase. This may cause the temperature and pressure relief valve to discharge small quantities of hot water. To prevent this from happening. there are two recommendations:

Install a diaphragm-type expansion tank that is suitable for potable water on the cold water supply line. The expansion tank must have a minimum capacity of 1.5 U.S. gallons for every 50 gallons of stored water.

Install a 125 PSI pressure relief valve in the cold water supply line. Make sure the discharge of this valve is directed to an open drain and protected from freezing.

Contact the local water supplier or plumbing inspector for information on how to control this situation. Do not plug the temperature and pressure relief valve.

Make sure the water heater has been properly installed.

Completely fill the tank with water. (See Figure 2)

Apply power to the water heater only after the tank is completely filled with water.

Carefully read and understand the "Water Temperature Regulation" section of this manual.

Adjust the thermostat to the desired temperature setting as directed under "Adjusting the Thermostat/ High Limit Control".

Important: Do not attempt to operate this water heater if the thermostat(s). or surrounding insulation has been exposed to water in any way. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the water heater and replace any thermostat or insulation that has been exposed to water. Do not attempt to repair these parts. Water heaters subjected to flood conditions or any time the thermostat(s) have been submerged in water require replacement of the entire water heater.

Safety Shut=off

This water heater is designed to automatically shut-off in the event that the water temperature exceeds 170°F (77°C). A high limit control switch is used to shut off the power to the elements if the water temperature exceeds 170°F (77°C). The high limit control can be reset by firmly pushing in the red reset button located on the thermostat.

Follow the instructions under "Adjusting the Thermostat/High Limit Control" to properly reset the high limit control.

Water Temperature Regulation

Water temperature over 125°F can cause severe burns instantly or death from scalds.

Children. disabled and elderly are at highest risk of being scalded.

See instructions manual before setting temperature at water heater.

Feel water before bathing or showering.

Temperature limiting valves are available.

The thermostat is adjusted to a temperature setting of 120°F or lower when it is shipped from the factory.

Water temperature can be regulated by adjusting the thermostat to the preferred setting as shown in "Adjusting the Thermostat/High limit Control." The preferred starting point is 120°F. There is a hot water scald potential if the thermostat is set too high.

Important: Adjusting the thermostat past 120°F on the thermostat will increase the risk of scald injury. Hot water can produce first degree burns within:

120°F (49°C) more than 5 minutes

130°F (54°C) at 20 seconds

140°F (60°C) at 3 seconds

150°F (66°C) at 1-1!2 seconds

160°F (71°C) at less than 1 second

During low demand periods when hot water is not being used. a lower thermostat setting will reduce energy losses and may satisfy your normal hot water needs.

If hot water use is expected to be more than normal. a higher thermostat setting may be required to meet the increased demand.

When leaving your home for extended periods (vacations. etc.) turn the thermostat to its lowest setting.

This will maintain the water at low temperatures with minimum energy losses and prevent the tank from freezing during cold weather.

Adjusting the Thermostat/High Limit Control

This water heater is equipped with one or more adjustable temperature regulating thermostats and a manual reset high limit control. The following procedures must be performed when changing the temperature of the stored water or resetting the high limit control.

Operation Conditions

Anode RodlWater Odor

Each water heater contains at least one anode rod. which will slowly deplete while protecting the glass-lined tank from corrosion and prolonging the life of the water heater.

Certain water conditions will cause a reaction between this rod and the water. Once the anode is depleted. the tank will start to corrode. eventually developing a leak.

The most common complaint associated with the anode rod is a 'Yotten egg smell" produced from the presence of hydrogen sulfide gas dissolved in the water. Do not remove this rod permanently as it will void any warranties. stated or implied. The parts list includes a special anode that can be ordered if water odor or discoloration occurs. This rod may reduce but not eliminate water odor problems.

The water supply system may require special filtration equipment from a water conditioning company to successfully eliminate all water odor problems.

Artificially softened water is exceedingly corrosive because the process substitutes sodium ions for magnesium and calcium ions. The use of a water softener may decrease the life of the water heater tank.

The anode rod should be removed from the water heater tank every 3 years for inspection. If the rod is more than 50% depleted. the anode rod should be replaced.

For replacing the anode. shut-off the power to the water heater. Be sure the cold water supply to the heater is turned off. Open the hot water faucet to depressurize the water tank. Drain out 5 gallons of water from the drain valve at the bottom of the heater. Remove the anode rod. See the "Repair Parts Illustration" for anode rod location on page 15.

Water Heater Sounds

During the normal operation of the water heater. sounds or noises may be heard. These noises are common and may result from the following:

Normal expansion and contraction of metal parts during periods of heat-up and cool-down.

Sediment buildup in the tank bottom will create varying amounts of noise and may cause premature tank failure. Drain and flush the tank as directed under "Draining and Flushing".

Stacking

Stacking occurs when a series of short draws of hot water (3 gallons or less) are taken from the water heater tank. This causes increased cycling of the heater elements and can result in increased water temperatures at the hot water outlet. An anti-scald device is recommended in the hot water supply line to reduce the risk of scald injury.

MAINTENANCE OF YOUR WATER HEATER

Draining and Flushing

The water heater should be drained if being shut down during freezing temperatures.

It is recommended that the tank be drained. and flushed every 6 months to remove sediment which may buildup during operation.

To drain the tank perform the following steps:

Turn off the power to water heater.

Close the cold water inlet valve and open a nearby hot water faucet.

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

Important: Drain hose should be rated forat least 200°F.

If the drain hose does not have this rating. open the cold water inlet valve and a nearby hot faucet until water is no longer hot.

Open the water heater drain valve and the nearest hot water faucet. Allow all the water to drain from the tank. Flush the tank with water as needed to remove sediment.

Close the drain valve. refill the tank. and restore power.

If the water heater is going to be shut down for an extended period. the drain valve should be left open.

Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve

Explosion Hazard

If the temperature and pressure relief valve is dripping or leaking. have a licensed plumber repair it.

Do not plug valve.

Do not remove valve.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in death. or explosion.

Manually operate the temperature and pressure relief valve at least once a year to make sure it is working properly. To prevent water damage. the valve must be properly connected to a discharge line which terminates at an adequate drain.

Standing clear of the outlet (discharged water may be hot). slowly lift and release the lever handle on the temperature and
