Water heater


Most instant-on tankless water heaters require at least 10 psi of water pressure to start the heating process. The flow of water determines how hot the water will be, within the heating range. An electric 110 volts heater will increase the water temperature about 25 degrees F. A gas water heater will increase the water temperature about 45 degrees F.
Too much flow will not allow the water time to heat. Too little flow will not allow the heating system to work. Each heater must have the outflow water flow adjusted for the best heating outcomes. The best way to find the ideal flow is to turn the hot water facet on and adjust it (open or close) until the water reaches the balance of producing hot water.

How do you increase the water temp?


Hi Donna:
The temperature is pre-set and is intended to be not too hot to inadvertently burn someone. Increasing the setting can cause a real SAFETY HAZARD, especially if small children or seniors are involved.
With that in mind, there will be a panel that unscrews from the side of the heater. After removing it, lift the insulation back and a dial should be visible. There will be numbers, and a pointer with a screw slot in the centre. Turning the pointer to a higher number will increase the temperature.
If you are going to adjust it, only do so a very small amount at one time, until you reach the desired temperature.
Remember, increasing the temperature will not give you more hot water, it will only give you hotter water. If you need more hot water, consider getting a larger tank or an "on demand" gas fired unit.
STAY SAFE!

Hi I have a Bosch water wizard 10p & although i have the heat turned up to the highest it is still not hot enough! I was wondering if there was another way of increasing the water temp?


Open following link for Bosch troubleshooting resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Bosch-Tankless-water-heater.html

Typical Bosch 10P manual shows temperature control illustration on Pg4, and includes low water temperatures on troubleshoot on Pg6
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch_10P-installation.pdf
Water flow rate too high, low gas pressure, faulty thermostat.

Two other things might be causing problem

I have an Atwood GGA-8E about 6 months old was getting hot water but now the water is only luke warm, any adjustments?


There should be a temperature setting on the gas valve. It should be on top or front and have several settings normally vacation, warm and hot. Rotate dial towards hot setting to increase water temperature. Hope this helps. Thanks

It turns on ,starts to get warm.Then turns off


Sounds like you have a problem with water flow. Since your ground water is warmer in the summer, you mix less hot and more cold in order to get the same warm temperature. If your hot water flow gets low enough, your tankless will start to "short cycle" in order to prevent scalding. Use one of these three methods to increase your water flow at the shower:

1) Clean your shower head and descale
2) Widen the hole in the showerhead's flow restrictor
3) Remove your flow restrictor entirely

Good luck!

Water temperature not hot enough


Biggest problem with this is the LP piping and gas pressure. It needs a higher gas pressure than the regulator is factory set for. Have your gas company or licensed plumber increase the pressure and check the flow (with all gas appliances on). Bring it up to 11 inches of water column with everything on. This will usually fix the problem.
