Questions & Answers

What size circuit breaker do I need to supply this

Asked by: Eminem
it's just ridiculous that Home Depot doesn't offer qualified support to answer questions like this.

Is the drain valve at the bottom metal or plastic? All other fittings, valves, connections?

Can this be used with a double 20 circuit breaker

That's what was on the old one, not sure of wire size, ( can existing wire hold a double 30)
Asked by: Austin3030
I wouldn't. I've got my water heater installed on its own 50 amp circuit, which is what I believe the installation specs call for.

How you I turn temperature up

How you I turn temperature up
Asked by: Bob
The adjustment instructions are: Turn off the power to the water heater. Remove the jacket access panel(s) and insulation exposing the thermostat(s). The thermostat protective cover(s) should not be removed. Using a small screwdriver, set the thermostat(s) dial pointer(s) to the desired temperature. Replace the insulation and jacket access panel(s). Turn on the power to the water heater.

The lights on front are nice to ensure unit is working and the preset temp is plenty warm enough. We did not have to change it at all.In fact, we may have to turn it down eventually. Highly recommend for price!

Adjusting thermostats could be easier and directions fail to note only one heater lights up at a time; this caused some concern when it was turned on.

The efficiency sticker was only on the unit and not on the box for comparison before purchase. It is above the average and I would think it would be more efficient as the premium price.
