will it work with 1/2 inch gas line

Asked by Roy May 1, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for asking, Roy. We would suggest to use a 3/4" gas line as we have seen them be trustworthy. However, 1/2" can be used, and we would suggest you follow the directives of a local gas fitter or your gas company. The unit requires 5-10"w.c. of gas pressure. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 1-866-279-4566. Thank you and have a great day.

Can it be used outdoors to heat pool water with a motor installed ? If yes how is the performance ?

Asked by RG April 11, 2020

Answer

Thank you for asking. The water heater is designed for domestic hot water usage, not to heat a pool. You would want to look into pool water heaters in specific.

Asked by Greg April 9, 2020
1
Answer

Thank you for asking, Greg. This unit can protect itself down to -30°F. If your temperature drops down to this level on a yearly basis, we would suggest getting an indoor model. If you have any further questions, please contact us at 1-866-720-2076. Thank you and have a great day.

Will it work for a 1/2" gas supply line?

Asked by TT April 5, 2020

Converting from a tanked water heater to tankless is always a major renovation. That being said, after almost a week long retrofit of the water heater closet and installation of the new Rheem Performance Platinum 9.0 GPM Liquid Propane High Efficiency Indoor Tankless Water Heater. The unit fired up on first try and is extremely quiet. I was very surprised at the low temperature exhaust while the unit is heating water. A few words of caution if you are a DIY guy like me. When ordering on line, the web site may recommend the purchase of Rheem 3 in. PVC Horizontal or Vertical Concentric Vent Termination Kit. This vent kit is mostly for new construction applications and not well suited for renovations. Also my local Home Depot dose not support the installation as they do not carry 3" PVC pipe. The unit comes with a side wall mounted vent termination that is fairly easy to install.

So far, so good. It took our plumber about 8 hours to complete the switchout from old tank heater to this new tankless. One month after installation, I don't notice any change in how long it takes for the tap to get hot, nor any decrease in hot water flow with, say, two showers and a dishwasher running simultaneously. Still waiting to see my first gas bill to see if there's any savings, energy-wise.

I installed this to replace an aging bosch whole house heater. Im so happy i did. Absolutely great product hands down. Zero, yes i said zero water fluctuations whatsoever. You set the temperature, and this puppy puts out. Not like the bosch, which had cold spots from day one. Recommend you are advanced to professional to install thou, due to the plumbing and gas lines need to be perfect for obvious safety reasons. When this Power house is running, it is super quiet. I had to actually look to make sure it was running. Although just testing the hot water is good enough, but you get my point.the only complaint i have is that the intake air cannot be user chosen location on top of the unit. It has provisions for a left intake port and no right side intake. But thats more aesthetic than function. And the icing on the cake is that its super efficient. Just love this whole house water heater.
