Direct Vent

These gas water heaters are designed to vent directly through an exterior wall. Since no electric current is required, hot water can be produced during long power outages. A flexible vent system allows for easy installation around most obstacles (plumbing, joists, etc.). Each water heater comes with a full installation kit.

Benefits

CO-AXIAL FLEXIBLE VENTING SYSTEM™
Combustion air is drawn directly from the outside providing a constant supply of fresh air to the burner. Exhaust gases are vented directly outside eliminating the need to install a costly chimney. Flexible venting allows installers to overcome most obstacles (plumbing, piping, studs, etc.) they will encounter. A complete vent kit is supplied with every water heat

PATENTED "WIND-TAMER®" EXTERIOR VENTING CAP

Prevents the pilot flame from being extinguished in extreme windy conditions. Can withstand winds in excess of 60 mph (100

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

FACTORY INSTALLED T&P RELIEF VALVE
Protects the tank from the damaging effects of excessive water 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 (hydro chlorofluorocarbons), 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.

PIEZO IGNITER
Makes lighting the pilot easy.

LOW NOx BURNER
Environmentally friendly. More efficient combustion resulting in a reduction of air pollution.

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

SEALED COMBUSTION CHAMBER
Eliminates backdraft vapours.

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

AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE CONTROL
Adjustable thermostat will provide years of reliable trouble-free service at the desired water temperature and an energy cut-off (E.C.O.) is provided for abnormal conditions.

GLASS-LINED INNER TANK
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.

NO ELECTRICAL POWER REQUIRED
Provides hot water even during power outages.
