It would be costly.They are not shipped to be interchangable like a range. They come in a Nat gas version or a LP version. Your best bet would be to get a veriable pressure knob like they use on a turkey frying rig and tweak down the pressure, I am not sure that would even work. It could be done but it would be expensive. You would need to swap out the pilots and the orifices.

Is a 650 delta gas valve for natural gas be used with lp


no.
propane burns much hotter than natural gas, and has higher pressure
gas valve and burner and orifice must be changed to switch between natural gas and propane

Most manufacturers do not support converting gas on heater.

Model# BWH30NLTB


Unit goes under sure heat name also.
My unit emitted unburnt gas smell the minute pilot started,
and was annoying during burner operation.
I discovered they built unit with primary pilot that had 2 ports.
They used LP and sealed off natural gas,instead turning lp/nat
knob on back activates second pilot for natural gas use.
This means natural gas goes thru LP pilot orifice and burns
slightly off during normal natural gas use(by design).
The unused natural gas orifice has 1 air mix hole and the LP orifice
has 2 air mix holes.
I carefully plugged 1 of the holes in the LP orifice and suddenly
pilot gas flame seated correctly on orifice port.Gone was the
unburnt odor of natural gas.
The typical flame in a flame appearance now was exhibited by
the small pilot,secondary pilot remained consistent with manual
picture.
Of course, to use with LP I would have to open blocked air mix
hole in addition to the other changes per manual.
Hope this helps someone with similar condition.

Change orfis in water heater


Do NOT do that.
If you put LP gas to NG heater you can cause explosion.
Contact manufacturer and see if they sell conversion kit. Most do not.

I have a RTA patio heater and on the box says it will work with LP or Propane but in the manual doesnt go into how to hook it or what needs to be done to LP connection can this be hooked into a home supply...


You didn't specify which model you have (Table Top or Tall Patio Heater). In any event, it doesn't matter, as LP and Propane are one in the same. However, it can not be converted to Natural Gas. Rita makes a separate Natural Gas model for that type of hookup.

WHAT SIZE HOLE IN JET ON HOT WATER HEATER TO CHANGE FROM NATURAL GAS TO LP GAS


That doesnt work with these units they are manufactured gas specific. The manifold plate would need to be changed as well as notification to Noritz to have a new serial # issued. PC board reprogram required, etc. Buy a natural gas or LP model.

Too much gas pressure. Are you sure that this is a LP heater and not a Natural gas heater? Is the regulator you have rated under 1/2 pound pressure? Try to throttle down the shutoff on the tank to see if pilot gets better. If so, you have a pressure issue. Gas you adjust the pilot gas valve?
