Questions & Answers

How much height clearance is required for installation?

Asked by: Webers
The tank itself is 62" tall and you need about 10" on top of that for piping. But you MUST install dip tub outside where you have plenty of clearance. Good luck. And whatever you do DON'T get the Everbilt universal braided steel hoses. They are garbage. They leak.

what size wire is required and does it require a neutral?

Asked by: alfred
I installed 10 gauge wire with 30 amp double pole breaker and wire gets warm when in use but manual says 12 gauge is ok. You need two hot and one ground. no neutral. 240 volts mean two HOT wires and ground of course. 120 volts = one hot, one neutral AND ground.

My old hot water heater was 4500/4500 watt 240 volt. If i purchase this heater does it matter that its 5500/5500 watt.

Asked by: chris
You should be OK on your old wiring. Hot water heaters are supposed to be supplied with number 10 copper wire. If it is number 10 copper wire it can easily by code even with the de-rating factor of 20% handle 5500 watts.

what size expansion tank should i purchase for this unit.
Asked by: greg
Hi Greg, We do not currently offer a Westinghouse expansion tank. The Amtrol ST-12 expansion tank or equal will work sufficiently. Thank you

We bought it because when we installed a walk-in tube our 50 gallon hot water heater could not hold up to its requirements. So far this 100 gallon tank delivers plenty of hot water. I am very happy with this purchase.

My only regret was that there was misunderstanding on whether I was to place the order or your on-line department. This misunderstanding resulted in a week's delay. No running hot water for 2 weeks in winter was a big inconvenience.
