Part 2 – Prepare the Water Heater
Remove all sides of the shipping crate to allow the heater to be moved into its installation location.
COLD WEATHER HANDLING – If the water heater has been stored in a very cold location (BELOW 0oF) before installation, handle with care until the components come to room temperature. Failure to do so could result in damage to the water heater.
A. What’s in the Box Components included with the water heater:
· Drain Valve · Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve · Insulation · Hot Water Outlet · Dip Tube · Tank Booster Assembly with Mixing Valve · Use and Care Manual and Warranty NOTE: Some components may ship factory installed.
B. Locating the Water Heater
All water heaters eventually leak. Locate the water heater where any leakage from the relief valve, related piping, tank, or connections will not result in damage to surrounding areas or lower floors of the building. Any water heater should be installed in such a manner that if it should leak the resulting flow of water will not cause damage to the area in which it is installed. National Plumbing codes require a drain pan for any water heater installation. This drain pan should be sized with a maximum depth of 2″, and a minimum diameter 2″ greater than the diameter of the water heater. The drain pan should empty into an open drain line. This drain line should be 3/4″ ID minimum, piped to an open drain. Leakage damages ARE NOT covered by warranty. Failure to install a drain pan is the sole responsibility of the owner and/or installer. Reference UPC 2000 (Uniform Plumbing Code) Section 510 – Protection from Damage or IPC 200 (International Plumbing code) Section 504 – Safety Devices. Leakage damages ARE NOT covered by warranty. In addition, water leak detection devices and automatic water shutoff valves are readily available at plumbing supply houses. IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER TO INSTALL WATER LEAK DETECTION DEVICES AND AUTOMATIC SHUTOFF VALVES IN ANY WATER HEATER INSTALLATION WHERE A LEAKAGE OF WATER COULD RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGES.

The service life of the water heater’s exposed metallic surfaces, such as the junction box, is 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 water heater components.
Incorrect operating conditions can lead to damage to the heating system and put safe operation at risk. Ensure that the 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 the water heater or components due to incorrect operating conditions IS NOT covered by product warranty.
This water heater must be installed upright in the vertical position as described in this manual. DO NOT attempt to install this water heater in any other orientation. Doing so will result in improper water heater operation and property damage, and could result in serious personal injury or death.
2. Choose a location for the water heater as centralized to the piping and electrical system as possible. Also, locate the water heater and domestic water piping where it will not be exposed to freezing temperatures. All piping should be insulated. Additionally, place the water heater so that the drain, controls, and inlets/outlets are easily accessible.
NOTE: To save on heating costs and improve energy efficiency keep the distance between the water heater and fixtures to a minimum to reduce heat loss from excess piping and keep friction loss at a minimum. Ensure all water heater piping is properly insulated to minimize heat loss.
NOTE: If you do not provide the minimum clearances shown in Figure 1, it might not be possible to service the water heater without removing it from the space.
NOTE: In the State of California, the water heater must be braced, anchored, or strapped to avoid moving during an earthquake. Contact local utilities for code requirements in your area. Visit http://www.dsa.dgs.ca.gov or call 1-916-445-8100 and request instructions.
However, applicable local codes shall govern installation. For residential water heaters of a capacity of greater than 52 gallons, consult the local building jurisdiction for acceptable bracing procedures.
3. Check area around water heater. Remove any combustible materials, gasoline, and other flammable liquids.

LP-790-B 10/04/21

This water heater must not be located near flammable liquids such as gasoline, butane, liquefied propane, adhesives, solvents, paint thinners, etc., as the controls of this water heater could ignite these vapors and cause an explosion resulting in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
4. If the water heater is to replace an existing water heater, check for and correct any existing system problems such as:
· System leaks
· Location that could cause the system and water heater to freeze and leak
· Incorrectly-sized expansion tank
5. This water heater must be installed vertical on a level surface.
C. Water Chemistry Requirements
Chemical imbalance of the water supply may affect efficiency and cause severe damage to the appliance and associated equipment. Water quality must be professionally analyzed to determine whether it is necessary to treat the water. Various solutions are available to adjust water quality. Adverse water quality will affect the reliability of the system. In addition, operating temperatures above 135oF will accelerate the build-up of lime scale and possibly shorten appliance service life. Failure of an appliance due to lime scale build-up, low pH, or other chemical imbalance IS NOT covered by the warranty.
The water must be potable, free of corrosive chemicals, sand, dirt, and other contaminates. It is up to the installer to ensure the water does not contain corrosive chemicals or elements that can damage the heat exchanger. Potable water is defined as drinkable water supplied from utility or well water in compliance with EPA secondary maximum contaminant levels (40 CFR Part 143.3). If the water contains contaminants higher than outlined by the EPA, water treatment is recommended and additional, more frequent maintenance may be required.
If you suspect that your water is contaminated in any way, discontinue use of the appliance and contact an authorized technician or licensed professional.

· Water pH between 6.5 and 8.5 · pH levels below 6.5 can cause an increase in the rate of corrosion. pH of 8.5 or higher can potentially cause lime scale build-up
· Maintain water pH between 6.5 and 8.5. Check with litmus paper or have it chemically analyzed by a local water treatment company.
· If the pH is not between 6.5 and 8.5, consult a local water treatment company for solutions.
· Hardness less than 12 grains (200 mg/L) · Hardness levels above the required amounts can lead to lime scale build-up throughout the system. Water below 5 grains/ gallon (85 mg/L) may be over softened.
· Consult local water treatment companies for unusually hard water areas (above the required amounts) or for other treatment solutions if water is being over softened (below 5 grains/gallon [85 mg/L]).
· Chloride concentration less than 100 ppm (mg/L) · Do not fill appliance or operate with water containing chlorides in excess of 100 ppm (mg/L).
· Using chlorinated fresh water should be acceptable as levels are typically less than 5 ppm (mg/L).
· Do not connect the appliance to directly heat swimming pool or spa water.
· Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) less than 500 ppm (mg/L) · Total dissolved solids are minerals, salts, metals, and charged particles that are dissolved in water.
· The greater the amounts of TDS present, the higher the corrosion potential due to increased conductivity in the water.
· If using softened water to fill the appliance, it is still possible to have high TDS. This water can be corrosive. Consult local water treatment companies for other treatment solutions to reduce this affect.
*NOTE:To promote appliance service life, it is strongly recommended to follow the maintenance procedures in this manual.
Failure of electric elements due to lime scale build-up on the heating surface, low pH, or other imbalance IS NOT covered by the warranty.

D. Anode Rod
This water heater is equipped with an anode rod. Anode rods are sacrificial components that counteract water chemistry to minimize or eliminate tank corrosion. The anode rod should be inspected at least annually and replaced as necessary to prolong tank life. Have the supply water quality professionally analyzed, as local water conditions will influence the duration for inspection and replacement of the anode rod. The use of a water softener may increase the speed of anode consumption. More frequent inspection of the anode is needed when using softened or treated water. Water with high sulfate and/or mineral content can produce a rotten egg odor in heated water. Consult a water treatment specialist for potential remedies. NOTE: Do not remove the anode rod from an operating water heater. Operating the water heater without the anode rod will shorten the life of the tank and VOID the warranty. NOTE: If anode rods are rapidly consumed water chemistry should be tested by a qualified technician. Corrective action should be taken to prevent the premature failure of the water heating system. Operating the water heater with fully consumed anode rods will shorten the life of the tank and VOID the warranty.

Part 3 – Piping
A. Plumbing It is mandatory that all plumbing be done in accordance with federal, local, and state plumbing codes and practices. Failure to properly install the water heater WILL VOID the warranty. It is also necessary to use both thread tape and pipe sealing compound on all mechanical plumbing connections. It is recommended to use unions on the hot and cold water connections to easily disconnect the water heater for servicing.
Dielectric unions or galvanized steel fittings must not be used in a system with this water heater. Doing so WILL VOID the warranty. It is recommended to use only copper, brass, or stainless steel fittings. Teflon thread sealant must be used on all connections.
1. Install a shut-off or check valve or both on the inlet connection on the top of the heater. Connect the cold water supply line to the shutoff valve or check valve. Refer to piping Applications, this manual.

Hydrogen gas is produced in a hot water system served by this heater that has not been used for a long period of time (two [2] weeks or more). Hydrogen gas is extremely flammable. To reduce the risk of injury under these conditions, it is recommended that the hot water faucet be opened for several minutes at the kitchen sink before using any electrical appliance connected to the hot water system. When hydrogen is present, there will probably be an unusual sound such as air escaping through the pipe as the water begins to flow. There should be no smoking or open flame near the faucet at the time it is open.

Do not apply heat to the Hot or Cold water heater connections. If sweat connections are used, sweat tubing to the adapter before fitting adapter to the water connections on the heater. Any heat applied to the water heater connections will permanently damage the dip tube and/or heat traps. Damages due to improper installation practices ARE NOT covered by warranty.
2. Connect the hot water line to the connection marked “HOT” on the top of the water heater. 3. Ensure the T&P Valve is installed in the opening provided near the top of the heater. 4. Ensure the drain valve is installed in the opening provided near the bottom of the heater.

B. Thermal Expansion A check valve may be installed in the cold water inlet line as a separate backflow preventer, or may be part of a pressure reducing valve, water meter, or water softener. An “open water system” refers to a system without a check valve. A “closed water system” refers to a system with a check valve installed in the cold water inlet line. As water is heated, it expands in volume and increases pressure within the water system. This action is referred to as “thermal expansion”. In an open water system, expanding water which exceeds the capacity of the system flows back into the city main where pressure is easily dissipated. A closed water system prevents expanding water from flowing back to the city main. The resulting thermal expansion can rapidly increase pressure in the water heater and system piping. This rapid pressure increase can exceed the setting of the pressure relief valve, causing it to operate during each heating cycle, resulting in discharge from the T&P. This rapid and repeated expansion and contraction of components in the system can cause premature failure of system components, including the relief valve and possibly the water heater. Replacing the relief valve will not correct thermal expansion. A potable hot water expansion tank is required to offset thermal expansion. Expansion tanks are designed with an air cushion built in that compresses as system pressure increases, thereby relieving the overpressure condition and eliminating repeated operation of the relief valve. This expansion tank should be installed in the cold water line between the water heater and check valve, and must be sized for the entire water volume of the hot water system. See piping Applications.

lp-790 Revision Date 1.3.22

8

Other methods of controlling thermal expansion are available. Check with the local water utility to determine if a check valve exists in the cold water inlet line. Contact your installing contractor, water supplier, or plumbing inspector for additional information regarding thermal expansion.
C. Condensation Condensation can form on the water heater when it is first filled with water, and may also occur with a heavy water draw and very cold inlet water temperature. This condition is not unusual and will disappear as the water becomes heated. However, if the condensation should continue, examine the piping and fittings for possible leaks.
D. Insulation Blankets
If local codes require external application of insulation blanket kits, the manufacturer’s instructions included with the kit must be carefully followed. In addition, pay careful attention to the following so as not to restrict the proper function and operation of the water heater:
· Do not cover the operating or warning labels attached to the water heater or attempt to locate them on the exterior of the insulation blanket.
· Do not apply insulation to the top of the water heater. This could interfere with the safe operation of the electrical junction box.
· Do not cover the jacket access panel(s) to the thermostat(s) and heating element(s) or T&P valve.
· Inspect the insulation blanket frequently. Failure to follow these instructions could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
E. Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve For protection against excessive pressures and temperatures in this water heater, ensure temperature and pressure protective equipment is installed as required by local codes, but not less than a combination T&P valve meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22B / CSA 4.4-M99 by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production listed equipment and materials. This valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked maximum working pressure of the water heater.
The water heater ships with an installed T&P valve. DO NOT OPERATE THE WATER HEATER WITH THE T&P VALVE BLOCKED OR REMOVED! The T&P valve must be plumbed down so discharge can exit at least 6″ above the structural floor. The relief line cannot be in contact with any live electrical parts.

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. · The discharge line shall terminate plain, not threaded, with a material serviceable for temperatures of 375oF or greater. · Do not pipe discharge to any location where freezing could occur. · No valve may be installed between the relief valve and heater 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 T&P valve at least once annually to ensure the waterway is clear. If valve does not operate, turn the heater “off” and call a plumber immediately. · Take care whenever operating relief valve to avoid scalding injury or property damage.
FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THESE GUIDELINES COULD RESULT IN FAILURE OF RELIEF VALVE OPERATION, RESULTING IN POSSIBILITY OF SUBSTANTIAL PROPERTY DAMAGE, SEVERE PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
RE-INSPECTION OF T&P RELIEF VALVES: T&P valves should be inspected AT LEAST ONCE EVERY THREE YEARS, and replaced if necessary, by a licensed plumbing contractor or qualified service technician to ensure that the product has not been affected by corrosive water conditions and to ensure that the valve and discharge line have not been altered or tampered with illegally. Certain naturally occuring conditions may corrode the valve and its components over time, rendering the valve inoperative. Such conditions can only be detected if the valve and its components are physically removed and inspected. Do not attempt to conduct an inspection on your own. Contact your plumbing contractor for a re-inspection to assure continued safety.
FAILURE TO RE-INSPECT THE T&P VALVE AS DIRECTED COULD RESULT IN UNSAFE TEMPERATURE AND/OR PRESSURE BUILDUP WHICH CAN RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE, SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
Do not thread a cap or plug into the relief valve or block relief valve outlet line under any circumstances! Explosion and property damage, serious injury, or death may result.

F. Scalding

Mixing valves can reduce but do not eliminate the risk of scalding. To avoid scalding:
· Set the water heater set point temperature as low as possible to meet installation requirements.
· Feel water before bathing or showering. · Use the mixing valve in accordance with the instructions
provided by the manufacturer. Failure to follow these instructions could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death due to scalds.

This water heater can

deliver scalding water.

Be careful whenever

using hot water to

avoid scalding injury.

Certain

appliances

such as dishwashers

and automatic clothes

washers may require

increased

water

temperatures. By setting

the thermostat on

this heater to obtain

the increased water

temperature required by

these appliances you may

create the potential for

scald injury.

To protect against injury, a mixing valve has been installed in the water heater. This valve will reduce point of use discharge temperatures by mixing cold and hot water in branch supply lines.

Table 1 details the relationship of water temperature and time with regard to scald injury and may be used as a guide in determining the safest water temperature for your applications.

After installation, water heater outlet temperature MUST BE checked with a thermometer at a hot water outlet fixture.
· Finish installing the water heater. Ensure it is properly piped, powered, and full of water (purged of air).
· Power the water heater. Wait for the water heater to satisfy the thermostat set point and has finished heating.
· Choose the hot water outlet fixture nearest to the water heater.
· Open the outlet. Check the outlet temperature with a thermometer. NOTE: DO NOT check the outlet temperature with your hand.
· Make a note of the temperature measured by the thermometer when it stops rising. NOTE: It may take some time for cooler water to clear the system.
· Follow the instructions in this manual if thermostat or mixing valve need adjustment.
Failure follow these instructions could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death due to scalds.

G. Filling the Heater · Make certain that the drain valve is completely closed. · Open the shut-off valve in the cold water supply line. · Open the hot water faucets to allow air to vent from the heater and piping. · Allow sufficient time for the heater to completely fill with water. · Verify elements are installed correctly. Check for leaks.

When filling the water heater, open a hot water tap to release air in the tank and piping. The tank must be full of water before the heater is turned on. Failure to ensure the water heater is full before turning it on could result in damage to the water heater and other property damages. Such damages ARE NOT covered by water heater warranty.

Tank must be full of water before the power is turned on. Heating elements will be damaged if energized for even a short time while tank is dry. Failures due to “dry-firing” ARE NOT covered by warranty. This unit is factory wired to a junction box on top of the water heater for field wiring connection. These heaters are equipped and wired for the maximum possible input allowable (see Table 3 for listing of inputs and amperage requirements). The voltage requirement and dedicated wattage load for the heater is specified on the rating label of the water heater. Consult your local power company to determine if your electrical service is adequate for the additional load of the heater. Refer to the wiring diagrams for field connections. All wiring must conform to local code and the National Electric Code, and should be done by a qualified licensed electrician or the local electric utility. Grounding can be accomplished by using approved conduit and fittings or other approved conductive material. A grounding wire is provided on the junction bracket. This grounding wire must be used in the installation.
Be sure to ground the water heater. The preferred way to ground is with rigid metal conduit between the main panel and the water heater junction box with approved end fittings (check codes on the use of flexible conduit). If making a separate ground, a green ground wire is provided in the water heater junction box. Replace the junction box cover and insulation after you have made the wiring connections. Failure to follow these instructions could result in property damage, severe personal injury, or death.

See instructions below. 6. Check the operation of the mixing valve by measuring the temperature at a hot water faucet. Ensure the outlet temperature is within +5oF of the desired outlet temperature. If the outlet temperature is out of range, adjust the tank booster valve as described in this manual. Replace the tank booster mixing valve if the desired outlet temperature cannot be reached. 7. Turn power supply off to the water heater. Open the drain valve and drain a few gallons of water from the tank to clear any hard water deposits. Once complete, close the drain valve and restore power to the water heater. 8. Inspect / replace the anode rod.

To flush the tank, attach a hose to the field installed drain valve. Close the cold water supply line shut-off valve. Open the drain valve and hot water faucet(s) to vent heater while draining. Direct the flow of water to a drain or bucket where it will not cause damage. Flush until water runs clear to complete this operation. Close drain valve and reopen the supply line shut-off valve. Close the hot water faucet(s) once all air has been bled from the system (when water runs freely). Make certain that the heater is completely full of water before restoring power. Periodically (At least twice a year) Check around the water heater and related plumbing for leaks. If the combination temperature and pressure relief valve discharges periodically, or water is leaking from around the heating elements, there may be a problem with your water system. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REPAIR LEAKS YOURSELF! Contact a qualified service contractor for assistance. Check the area around the water heater for flammable liquids or combustible materials. If any are found, remove from the area. Vacation (Extended shut-off periods) During extended mild or warm weather periods when hot water will not be in use, lower the setpoint temperature on the water heater. When hot water is needed again, raise the setpoint temperature on the water heater. Drain the water heating system (as detailed in this section) if the water heater will be shut off and exposed to freezing temperatures. Fill the water heating system (as detailed in this section) when

T&P Relief Valve Maintenance Instructions: · Annually: Certain naturally occuring mineral deposits may adhere to the valve, blocking waterways and rendering the valve inoperative. The T&P Relief Valve lever must be operated to ensure the waterways are clear. If waterways are clear, hot water will discharge from the valve. Take precautions to avoid personal injury and property damage from contact with hot water. Before operating lever, check to see that a discharge line is connected to the valve, directing the flow of hot water from the valve to a proper place of disposal. · Replacement of the valve is required if no water flows when the lever is operated. Turn the water heater off until the valve is replaced. · If water flows from the valve, drain a few gallons from the tank to ensure the water flows freely. · At least once every three years: To ensure that the T&P valve has not been affected by corrosive water conditions and that the valve and discharge line have not been altered or tampered with illegally, relief valves should be inspected, and replaced, if necessary, by a licensed plumbing contractor or qualified service technician.
Failure to comply with these guidelines could result in failure of relief valve operation, and possibly result in substantial property damage, severe personal injury, or death.
