Question about Rinnai RC80i Tankless Water Heater 8.0 GPM 157,000 BTU
Is there a conversion kit
Generally the answer is probably no, especially if you have a family, children, dog and neighbors.
Propane burns Hotter and has more pressure than natural gas.
Burner must be more robust cast iron.
Orifices must be changed to accommodate different gas.
Different gas control valve needed.
In some cases there are dip switch changes for type of gas and altitude above sea level ... the higher the elevation, the hotter gas burns.
Here is expected result from changing NG to LP.
But your good luck might lead to less volatile result

Gas control valve is different, burner is different, burner and gas valve must match, threads are regular instead of reverse, dip switches probably have to be changed since combustion of NG is not as hot. Maybe different sensors. Pressures are lower with NG.
