I believe it would have to be modified to run on natural gas, just like a grill.

Asked by Frustrated July 31, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for asking, Frustrated. 7 flashes or 8 flashes followed by 1 flash are the Flash/Error Code for a Flammable Vapor Lockout. Our unit uses a Flammable Vapor Sensor (FVS), which shuts the unit off if it detects a Hydrocarbon or flammable vapor. The only other ways to trip the device would be to get it wet or expose it to ambient or direct heat of 150° or more. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 1-866-279-4566. Thank you and have a great day.

I live at 5600 ft. I'm on lp for fuel. Can I get a 75 gal hot water heater?

Asked by Michael July 6, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for asking, Michael. This unit cannot be installed at your altitude. However, we suggest looking at our XP75T06ST76U0, which can be purchased here on the Home Depot website and is rated up to 8,500 ft. The only difference is that it is an atmospheric water heater, which requires vertical venting. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 1-866-279-4566. Thank you and have a great day.

My water heater is in the basement with a ceiling that is not insulated. Standing right over the unit we cannot hear it running. In the basement, you can hear the fan going, but you would not have to raise your voice to talk over it. The exhaust runs up the wall in the master bath and we cannot hear it at all. Out in the back yard, we can hear a faint blowing noise from on the roof.

we need to replace the gas valve.serial # gelno307535428.

Easy install. Pretty straight forward replacement. Used 18" Sharkbite stainless steel flexible supply lines with ball valve and a flexible gas line with a safety valve both purchased at Home Depot. Also a length of 2" pvc, 2 45 degree elbows, primer & glue for the exhaust pipe. I was replacing a 40 gal. and the new 50 gal Rheem tank was 2" wider in diameter and 1" shorter so the flexible water and gas supply lines made it go quick. Just had to make a minor change in the pvc vent pipe. Turned it on it fired up and has been operating for a few weeks now with no leaks or problems. PowerVent is much quieter than the one I had to replace.

Very well made water heater
When our water heater needed to be replaced. we were shocked at the price of the heaters and wondered why the price was so high,. we had no choice but to purchase it. The first thing we noticed was the difference in size and weight from the old one. The insulation was much better in the new one. Hook up was easy and we realized that the quality of the new heater was much better then the old one. It still hurts the pocketbook but are hoping that the same quality of the outside is on the inside of the heater and it will prove that you get what you pay for.

Works well, no complaints so far. Quieter than the previous unit. easy to setup. The vent is still audible, but I don't think there's much that can be done about that.
