SOURCE: have a NG unit

Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing you can safely do to convert it from Natural Gas to LPG.
Each unit is manufacutered and tested for the specific gas type. Attempting to change it, puts all the liability on you, if something should go wrong. There are some on this site that will tell you all you have to do, is change the pilot orifice. That's fine for a Vented heating appliance, but not a Vent-free Heater like yours. In your case, you'd need a new control valve assembly, pilot assembly, burner, etc. That alone is about the cost of a new LPG Vent-free Heater. Besides, DESA Interantional has been out of business for 3 or 4 years now. So, parts would be an issue.

Sell the heater to someone who has Natural Gas and use the proceeds toward a new LPG Vent-free Heater. Always remember and don't every forget, it's always safety first when it comes to gas appliances.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

How to Convert to NG

You have to contact the manufacturers rep in the community to verify that the particular model of Dayton heater has the capability of NG to LP conversion. If it is, the natural gas kit will include a new set of brass 'spuds'...typically referred to as 'orifices'....for the main burners. The size of the hole will be considerably larger because NG contains less btu per cubic foot than LP gas.

There will be a replacement pilot orifice for the pilot assembly. Removed and installed usually a 1/2" and 7/16" wrench. This orifice will also have a larger diameter opening.

There should be a regulator to match the 100% redundant gas valve that is in your heater. Note though, that there may be several regulators in the kit to match any one of several brand gas valves that could've been installed on your heater....Robt Shaw, White Rodgers, Honeywell. They will NOT interchange with one another. Follow the directions closely to ensure installation is done are working with a volitile, explosive gas !!!!

There may or may not be a set of air shutters to fit over the ends of the burners for primary air adjustment. Natural gas may require a bit of air adjustment to get the proper flame.

Thoroughly leak test everything when done, then leak test again.
If you feel you are in over your head, you probably are so contact a reliable service organization to do it instead. But at least you now have an idea of what is involved.

I need to convert this water heater to natural gas. Is there a kit available to do this?

No kits are available to convert his unit to NG. This is because the LP uses copper pipe and is within code, the NG uses black pipe and each unit is specifically designed, entirely, to use the gas associated with the unit.

That heater was not designed to be safely converted to Natural Gas. Even if you could convert it, it would cost more to do that than to replace the heater.
