Question about Bosch AquaStar Indoor Natural Gas Tankless Water Heater with Vent Hood #125
It only happens when the wind is really blowing outside. I reach in to relight the pilot and I feel a a lot of draft. It will come on after I relight the pilot but it won't stay on and I watched the pilot while it happens and it looks like the pilot gets sucked out. Once that happens the burner flames go off. Safety precaution because I do smell carbon monoxide when it happens. We thougth we had this well vented but it seems like we need to stop some of the wind from coming down the pipe when it's windy and we are using it. It only happens when it is in use.
Hi. I have a tankless water heater that Bosch says they manufactured. It's point-of-use under the kitchen sink. It services the kitchen sink, dishwasher and the bathroom sink and shower. (We live remotely...6 miles from town). It's a little house. Anyway, the unit was installed in late 2005. It's blown the flex water pipe, now twice - once was this afternoon. What's going on? I was hand washing a few pots, smelled ozone and heard wooshing and hammering noises under the sink. After contacting Bosch's technicians, the water hose to the hot side blew completely off, spraying the kitchen with water. Big mess. I don't know what to do about this, this is the second time it's happened.
Any ideas? (By-the-way, Bosch said it was installed incorrectly because the guy that installed used a pig-tale instead of hard-wiring. It's been working all this time...now I'm afraid to leave it alone).

There are many anti-back-draft systems on the market, but there may be only a few that could possibly be Incorporated in to your application. You might contact the manufacturer for their product list of, flue pipe anti-back-draft devices.
