2.4General rules to follow for safe operation

B1. You should follow these instructions when you install your heater. In the United States: The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.

In Canada: The Installation should conform with CGA B149.(1,2) INSTALLATION CODES and /or local installation codes.

B2. Carefully plan where you install the heater. Proper clearances must be followed.

B3. The appliance must be isolated from the gas supply piping system by closing its individual manual gas shutoff valve (not supplied with heater) during any pressure testing at pressures in excess of ½ Psig (3.5 kPa).

The appliance and its gas connection must be leak tested before placing the appliance in operation.

B4. Keep water heater area clear and free from combustibles and flammable liquids. Do not locate the heater over any material which might burn.

B5. Correct gas pressure is critical for the optimum operation of this heater. Gas piping must be sized to provide the required pressure at the maximum output of the heater, while all the other gas appliances are in operation. Check with your local gas supplier, and see the section on connecting the gas supply.

B6. Should overheating occur or the gas supply fail to shut off, turn off the gas supply at the manual gas shut off valve, on the gas line. Note: manual gas shutoff valve is not supplied with the heater.

B7. Do not use this appliance if any part has been underwater. Immediately call a qualified service technician to inspect the appliance and to replace any part of the control system and any gas control which has been underwater.

2.5Proper location for installing your heater

Carefully select the location of the water heater. Follow the guidelines below:

B 1. Locate the heater where venting, gas and plumbing connections are feasible and convenient.

B2. The hot water lines should be kept short to save energy. Centrally locating the water heater is best. It is always best to have the water lines insulated to prevent the possibility of any freeze damage.

B3. The water in this heater is cold and always remains cold except for the times that hot water is being used. The heater is equipped with freeze prevention equipment that will operate and prevent freezing of the water in the heater to 5°F with no wind chill. Electrical power must be maintained to the heater to allow this to function.

WARNING: Proper insulation of the water lines below the heater is required if below freezing temperatures, below 32°F, are ever anticipated!

Danger: If the temperature drops below 5°F, freeze damage to the water heater itself must be prevented by turning off the power to the heater, then disconnecting the plumbing connections and introducing short bursts of compressed air (20-40psi) through the heater's connections. This will remove the residual water in the horizontal pipes and water valve..

Danger: Keep children away as the top of the water heater vent cap will get very hot during operation. Install in a place that prevents the top of the heater being reached by small children.

Danger: Flue gases will be released through the vent cap. Flue gas is very hot and contains carbon monoxide. The heater cannot be installed indoors. To prevent risk of fire and poisoning by carbon monoxide, assure all clearances indicated in manual.

Danger: Surface temperature around vent cap is less than 140°F, except highest top surface of vent cap may reach 400°F.

Danger: Do not place or store any combustible material within 5 feet of the appliance. Risk of fire could be caused by hot flue gas. Note: Exception is made for the wall where the appliance is installed and any adjacent walls or overhang. In this case observe clearances required in chapter 2.6.

Warning: Flammable materials, gasoline, pressurized containers, or any other items or articles that are potential fire hazards must NOT be placed on or adjacent to the heater. The appliance area must be kept free of all combustible materials, gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

B After inspection, replace front cover and tighten screws, then replace plastic decal shields.

BFix the top vent cap on the top of the heater, as shown in Fig. 8). Make sure the vent cap is well fitted

by taking special care that the front cover stays inside the extended corners of the vent cap, as shown in Fig. 8). The sides of the cover must be pressed with your hands to ensure it fits inside those corners. Secure it in place with its two screws.

Fig. 9

Fig. 8

BThe water heater is design certified for mounting on a wall. Secure the wall mounting bracket provided with the water heater to a wall surface. See Fig. 9.

BThe installation method of the mounting bracket will

depend on what type of surface it’s being mounted to. Due to the varying types of building surfaces, the installer must decide on how best to support and level the heater on an outside wall. It is always recommended that horizontal or vertical support boards or plywood sheathing (1/2” minimum) first be attached to the wall surface. The heater must also be kept level on the wall surface.

Warning: Do not mount heater directly to vinyl siding. With vinyl siding surfacing, a 6' x 4' area of the siding must first be removed and then replaced with wood or other non-plasticmade material. See Fig. 10.

Fig. 10

Vent Safety System

The 250 SXO will shut down if the intake or exhaust louvers on the vent cap are blocked for any reason; see troubleshooting section on page 19. See error code table to confirm error, correct the problem and then reset the heater before operating.

2.8Gas piping & connections

Before connecting the gas supply, check the rating plate on the right side of the heater to be sure that the heater is rated for the same gas to which it will be connected.

In the United States: The installation must conform with local codes or, in the absence of local codes, the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54.

In Canada: The Installation should conform with CGA B149 INSTALLATION CODES and/or local installation codes.

GAS LINE SIZING

The gas supply piping should be sized according to the applicable plumbing code for a maximum draw of 175,000 BTUH. Measure the length of gas supply line and use the tables in Fig. 12 or the gas line manufactures sizing tables to determine the pipe diameter necessary to accommodate the BTU demand of the unit. If there are more gas drawing appliances on the line, size the gas line according to the total maximum amount of BTU draw for all appliances.

Note: Under sizing the gas line may result in diminished output and improper operation. See chapter 2.9 for the procedure to confirm gas pressure.

Inlet gas particle screen Gas piping

Fig. 11

BInstall a manual gas shut off valve, on the gas supply line.

BThe use of a union when connecting gas pipe to the gas inlet connection is important, this will facilitate any necessary servicing and cleaning of the inlet gas particle screen.

BThe minimum diameter required for any appliance connector used is ¾”.

BNational Fuel Gas Code requires that a sediment trap (drip leg) be installed on gas appliances not so equipped. The drip leg must be accessible and not subject to freezing conditions. Install in accordance with the recommendations of the serving gas supplier.

Warning: The heater must be isolated from the gas supply piping system during any pressure testing of that system at test pressures equal to or more than 0.5 psig.

The water heater must not be piped with gas supply pressures in excess of 0.5 psig. If overpressure has occurred, such as through improper testing of the gas lines or malfunction of the supply system, the gas valve must be checked for safe operation.

When connections are made, check for gas leaks at all joints. Apply some gas leak detection solution to all gas fittings. Bubbles are a sign of a leak. A Combustible Gas Detector may also be used to detect for leaks.

Danger: If you have a leak, shut off the gas. Tighten appropriate fittings to stop leak. Turn the gas on and check again with a gas leak detection solution. Never test for gas leaks using a match or flame.
