Question about Rheem 50 Gallon FVR NATGAS Water Heater 6YR 22V50F1
Is it possible, safely, to bypass the igniter and have hot water during a power outage? It is a gas water heater and the gas flow is not interrupted, only electricity to the igniter is affected.
There are super efficient gas water heaters that do require power to work for two reasons, 1. to ignite the gas, and to exhaust the gas using a power motor/fan exhaust system. very efficient but need power to work. and there is no bypassing.
