!Water temperature over 125°F can cause severe burns instantly or death from scalds. Temperature control settings usually approximate tap water temperature. However, factors could cause water temperature to reach 160°F regardless of the control settings. Children, disabled and elderly are at highest risk of being scalded. See instruction manual before setting temperature at water heater. Feel water before bathing or showering. Temperature limiting valves are available; see manual.

DANGER Risk of Scald – Before manuallyoperating the relief valve, make certain no one will be exposed to the danger of coming in contact with the hot water released by the valve. The water may be hot enough to create a scald hazard. The water should be released into a suitable drain to prevent injury or property damage.NOTE: If the temperature and pressure-relief valve on the hot water heater discharges periodically, this may be due to thermal expansion in a closed water system. Contact the water supplier or your plumbing contractor on how to correct this. Do not plug the relief valve outlet.3URSHUOPDLQWDLQHGRXUZDWHUKHDWHUZLOOSURYLGHHDUV RIGHSHQGDEOHWURXEOHIUHHVHUYLFH,WLVVXJJHVWHGWKDW WKHIROORZLQJDQQXDOSUHYHQWLYHPDLQWHQDQFHSURJUDPEH HVWDEOLVKHG,QVSHFW7HPSHUDWXUH 3UHVVXUH5HOLHI9DOYH‘UDLQDQG)OXVKWKHZDWHUKHDWHUWDQN,QVSHFWDOOZDWHUFRQQHFWLRQORFDWLRQVTemperature and Pressure-Relief Valve: 2QFHDHDULWLVUHFRPPHQGHGWROLIWDQGUHOHDVHWKH OHYHUKDQGOHRQWKHWHPSHUDWXUHDQGSUHVVXUHUHOLHI YDOYHORFDWHGRQWKHIURQWULJKWVLGHRIWKHZDWHU KHDWHUWRPDNHFHUWDLQWKHYDOYHRSHUDWHVIUHHO$OORZ VHYHUDOJDOORQVWRIOXVKWKURXJKWKHGLVFKDUJHOLQHWRDQ RSHQGUDLQ0RVWHOHFWULFDODSSOLDQFHVHYHQZKHQQHZPDNHVRPH VRXQGZKHQLQRSHUDWLRQ,IWKHKLVVLQJRUVLQJLQJVRXQG OHYHOLQFUHDVHVH[FHVVLYHOWKHHOHFWULFKHDWLQJHOHPHQW PDUHTXLUHFOHDQLQJ&RQWDFWDTXDOLILHGLQVWDOOHURU SOXPEHUIRULQVSHFWLRQ

Installation InstructionsWATER SUPPLY CONNECTIONSRefer to the illustration below for recommended installation. The HOT and COLD water connections are clearly marked and are ” NPT on all models. 5HPRYHDQGGLVFDUGUHGDQGEOXHFDSVWKDWKDYHEHHQSODFHG RQWKHZDWHUFRQQHFWLRQVIRUVKLSSLQJWhen connecting to the inlet/outlet ports, the use of female NPT tapered thread fittings with use of thread sealant is recommended. The installation of unions is recommended on the hot and cold water connections so that the water heater may be easily disconnected for servicing if necessary. NOTE: Install a shut-off valve in the cold water line near the water heater. This will enable easier service or maintenance of the unit later. IMPORTANT: Do not apply heat to the HOT or COLD water connections. If sweat connections are used, sweat tubing to adapter before fitting the adapter to the cold water connections on heater. Any heat applied to the hot or cold water connection will permanently damage the internal plastic lining in these ports. Install a vacuum relief valve and/or anti-siphon device when required by local jurisdictions.7SLFDOLQVWDOODWLRQFDQEHIRXQGLQWKHGLDJUDPEHORZ

RELIEF VALVEWARNING Risk of Unit Damage – Thepressure rating of the relief valve must not exceed 150 PSI (1.03 MPa), the maximum working pressure of the water heater as marked on the rating plate.A new combination temperature and pressure-relief valve, complying with the Standard for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shut-Off Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22, is supplied and must remain installed in the opening provided and marked for this purpose on the water heater. No valve of any type should be installed between the relief valve and the tank. Local codes shall govern the installation of relief valves.The BTUH rating of the relief valve must not be less than the input rating of the water heater as indicated on the rating label located on the front of the heater (1 watt=3.412 BTUH).Connect the outlet of the relief valve to a suitable open drain so that the discharge water cannot contact live electrical parts or persons and to eliminate potential water damage.Piping used should be of a type approved for hot water distribution. The discharge line must be no smaller than the outlet of the valve and must pitch downward from the valve to allow complete drainage (by gravity) of the relief valve and discharge line. The end of the discharge line should not be threaded or concealed and should be protected from freezing. No valve of any type, restriction or reducer coupling should be installed in the discharge line.Temperature & 3UHVVXUH5HOLHI9DOYH
CAUTIONTo reduce the risk of excessive pressures and temperatures in this water heater, install temperature and pressure protective equipment required by local codes and no less than a combination temperature and pressure relief valve certified by a nationally recognized testing laboratory that maintains periodic inspection of production of listed equipment or materials, as meeting the requirements for Relief Valves and Automatic Gas Shutoff Devices for Hot Water Supply Systems, ANSI Z21.22. This valve must be marked with a maximum set pressure not to exceed the marked maximum working pressure of the water heater. Install the valve into an opening provided and marked for this purpose in the water heater, and orient it or provide tubing so that any discharge from the valve exits only within 6 inches above, or at any distance below, the structural floor, and does not contact any live electrical part. The discharge opening must not be blocked or reduced in size under any circumstances.TO FILL THE WATER HEATERWARNING Risk of Unit Damage – Thetank must be full of water before heater is turned on. The water heater warranty does not cover damage or failure resulting from operation with an empty or partially empty tank.Make certain the drain valve is completely closed.Open the shut-off valve in the cold water supply line.Open each hot water faucet slowly to allow the air to vent from the water heater and piping.A steady flow of water from the hot water faucet(s) indicates a full water heater.Condensation can form on the tank and fittings when it is first filled with water. Condensation may also occur with a heavy water draw and very cold inlet water temperature.This condition is not unusual and will disappear once water is heated. If condition persists, examine fittings for potential leaks and repair, as required.
NOTICEDo not mis-wire electrical connections. VAC must be applied WRWKHZDWHUKHDWHU as shown in `Water heater junction box’ illustration.
