    Q:Does the Ecotemp 6.5 gb Tankless Water heater require a condensation drain for venting?
    by|Apr 4, 2024
    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  Good question - all of our indoor gas tankless water heaters need to have condensation drain pipes for venting that are made of category III stainless steel materials. The stainless-steel venting and condensation drain is required for safety standards and if a customer uses other incompatible material for venting it can cause too much acidity in the exhaust and cause damage to the internals of the water heater. The stainless steel handles the exhaust temps safer and more efficiently.

      Q:Can you vent the exhaust straight up ?
      by|Feb 16, 2024
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Any indoor model tankless water heater can be vented vertically and horizontally. The installation of venting must comply with national codes, local codes, and the vent manufacturer’s instructions. The owner must refer to the vent manufacturer’s instructions and specifications. The water heater must be vented to the Indoors as described in these instructions. DO NOT connect this water heater to an existing vent or chimney, it must be vented separately from all other appliances. Eccotemp also recommends adding a backflow preventer to keep freezing outside air from reaching the water heater. Consult with an installation professional for proper installation. All vent components (adapters, pipe, elbows, terminals, etc.) should be UL 1738 Certified Stainless Steel Venting Material (e.g. AL29-4C). The specified vent termination must be used. The termination should be a 90° elbow type with screen (refer to page 24). Use a vent pipe with an anti disconnection structure. The use of a high-temperature silicone (500’ F) may be required to seal vent connections. To prevent accidental gas exhaust leakage, apply a 1/4” wide bead approximately 1/4” from the end and another bead against the joint side of the stop bead. Follow vent manufacturer’s installation instructions. The water heater can be vented either horizontally or vertically. Vent pipe runs must be adequately supported along both horizontal and vertical runs. The maximum recommended unsupported span should be no more than five (5) feet. Support isolation hanging bands should be used.

        Q:Does the unit come with servicing valves or are these extra?
        by|Oct 31, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hello there! The Builder Series 6.5 Indoor Liquid Propane tankless water heater does not include service valves as a standard component. However, for the convenience of customers, these essential service valves are available for separate purchase or can be conveniently bundled with the water heater at the time of purchase. This provides flexibility for consumers to choose the option that best suits their needs and ensures a seamless and hassle-free installation process. It is important to note that the absence of automatic inclusion of service valves allows customers to tailor their purchase based on individual requirements and preferences. This customer-centric approach not only provides a customizable experience but also ensures that users have access to all the necessary components for a successful and efficient installation of the Builder Series 6.5 Indoor Liquid Propane tankless water heater. Thank you! Team Eccotemp

          Terrible Coustomer Service
          I called for technical support with an E1 error code. The recorded phone message says technical support calls must be scheduled and to visit their website to schedule a call or to leave a message for someone to return your call. I left a message and in 3 weeks have never received a phone call. I also went to their website to schedule a call though no such option exists on their website. Their customer service is neither existent or effective. DO NOT BUY ECCOTEMP or you may well regret it!!
