Questions & Answers

I dont have internet at the house, rural area just along a National Forest. Will the wifi feature still connect to my phone with the app instaled?

Thank you for asking, Jeff. The water heater will operate normally without a WiFi connection, however in order to utilize the EcoNet app and features from your phone, an internet connection is required. For technical assistance with your unit, please contact us at 1-866-279-4566. For assistance setting up your EcoNet app, contact 1-800-255-2388. Thank you again for contacting us, and have a great day!

can I place bricks underneath the water heater to keep it off the floor?

will leak detection still work if heater is on top of bricks
Asked by: Purr24
As long as the water touches the sensor it should trip. If say the water sprays in a direction not near the detector it might not. If your still concerned a pan is sold separately to place under your heater but on top of your bricks. This basin should with a small leak catch your leak long enough to trip the alarm and contain the mess.

Can you shut down the WiFi feature? Do not need nor do I want to use it - can it be disabled?

Can you shut down the WiFi feature? Do not need nor do I want to use it - can it be disabled?
Asked by: Doug
While you can shut it down, the problem is that you will not know what is wrong with your water heater without Econet, the sister company on the software side, to tell you what the error codes mean. And good luck finding them in your "Use and Care Manual" or even online. I couldn't find any of them. The "service needed" light gives you only limited information.
