Benefits

INTELLI-VENT™ GAS CONTROL VALVE
State-of-the-art, tamper resistant, and self diagnosing electronic gas control valve is installed for more precise water temperature control and easy troubleshooting
Integrated ON/OFF switch
Detailed fault history
Protective PVC tubing over the ignition wires
Serviceable single circuit board

SIGHT GLASS
Provides easy viewing into the combustion chamber to verify the operation of the igniter and the burner.

SILICON NITRIDE IGNITER
Improves efficiency by eliminating the energy used by a standing pilot. The operating life of the igniter is extended using the gas control’s Intelli-Vent™ technology

ROLL-AROUND BASE
Provides easy handling for installer without damaging the floor during installation.

FLAMMABLE VAPOUR SENSOR
Detects the presence of flammable vapours and shuts down the water heater

GLASS LINED INNER TAN
A uniquely formulated blue cobalt glass enriched with zircon is fused to specially treated steel at 1,600°F (871°C) to provide the best coating available against corrosion for many years. The tank is certified at a test pressure of 300 PSI (2,068 kPa) and a working pressure of 150 PSI (1,034 kPa).

HIGH QUALITY MAGNESIUM ANODE
Provides excellent protection against the corrosive effects of water and extends tank life.

3/4" NPT-F SIDE TAPPINGS*
For combination heating applications.

FACTORY INSTALLED 3/4" NPT DI-ELECTRIC NIPPLES
Extend the life of the water heater by providing excellent corrosion protection.

TWO (2) INCH TWO-PIPE INTAKE/EXHAUST SYSTEM
Combustion air is drawn from the outside providing a constant supply of fresh air to the burner. Can be vented horizontally through the wall or vertically through the roof. Refer to the instruction manual for full details.

FACTORY INSTALLED TEMPERATURE AND PRESSURE-RELIEF VALVE
Protects the tank from the damaging effects of excessive temperature and pressure.

INSULATION
A thick uniform blanket of GREENFOAM® eco-friendly insulation keeps the water hotter for longer periods, reduces stand-by losses and energy costs. GREENFOAM® contains no HCFC’s (hydrochlorofluorocarbons), CFC’s (chlorofluorocarbons) nor VOC’s (volatile organic compounds).

DRAIN VALVE
Excellent quality, tamper resistant, one-piece brass drain valve is installed for easy drainage.

A CHOICE OF TWO POSSIBLE TERMINATIONS
a) Standard 90˚ elbows are used for termination of venting and intake (included in the box).
b) Optional concentric vent termination provides easy installation of the venting system, requiring only one hole through the wall or the roof (certain restrictions apply to total equivalent length).
