There really is no way to do this. If you put a cap you will restrict the air flow which will cause you to have problems with the water heater, same thing if you where to put screen on it. You can try enlarging the pipe to a 3 inch and see if that works. But 15 years in the trade nothing has been made to reduce the noise

Noisy barring motor


bradford white blower . Sir this link will provide you with a variety of sources to buy the blower. The average is far below your quoted target. Since this is a nut and bolt with a direct plug or 3 wire assembly, bradford white blower 239 40614 00 . Here lies a different price point.


If this blower is out of warranty and its been running a long time. The value of the direct replacement is a far better choice to average, although more, odds; are to revisit it sooner than later without a direct replacement.


If you need help to do this job? It can be a do-it -yourself. Make sure the unit is locked out and give it a whirl. If not? The replacement is approximately 2/3 that of your suggested quote. The ball is always in your court.

Be safe. Carbon Dioxide does not discriminate, you never hear anyone from the cemetery complaining. If this is iffy. Get a technician. The extra 1/3 may justify the worth of a life investment. Fare. Well.

I have a ecosense tankless water heater #rtg-74pvn-2 how far can i take the vent


Feb 2013
1) Rheem/EcoSense tankless product manual does not have specifications for length. Error 11 will let you know if venting is improper.
Often, tankless are installed outside because unobstructed venting is key for combustion of the amount of gas coming out of 3/4" gas line.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Troubleshoot-Rheem-Tankless-water-heater.html

2) Copy following link for Bradford White venting: Exactly same as Rheem, but more installation detail. No maximum lengths given.
For lengths greater than 5 feet, a condensate trap must be installed. Acidic water from hydrocarbon combustion will damage metal, and destroy heat exchanger inside tankless if water drips back into unit.
http://hometips.me/Tls/Venting-Bradford-White-tankless-gas.pdf

3) Copy following link for tank-type power vent tables:
Generally, the longer distance requires larger vent diameter, and there is max number of elbows and/or air-flow restrictions.
http://hometips.me/Mar/Bradford-White-Power-Vent%20-tables.pdf

4) Otherwise call Rheem/EcoSense, and add comment saying what resources they offer.

Have 75 gallon gas water heater. Can I run 90 PVC off top power vent without vertical PVC first? Have Richmond unit.


1) I believe you can immediately elbow the PVC pipe.
There is a limit for how many elbows can be used between blower and termination, and limit is determined by diameter of PVC pipe.

2) Copy following link for venting resources and typical Rheem and Richmond power vent manuals, and diameter-elbow pdf from Bradford White.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#venting

3) Richmond is Rheem. Product manual will show specifications for venting.
Product warranty is voided if installation does not follow specifications shown in manual.

I have a Bradford White water heater (model# MITW50L6LN10) that started making noise yesterday. Tonight when the family got home we started a bath for the kids and surprise surprise no hot water left in...


Probably cheaper to fix existing water heater.
The problem might be the power vent, or the power vent might be short cycling because the gas control valve is bad, or vacuum switch has gone bad.
Call Bradford White and get their recommendation for your specific model.

Bradford White is very good brand of water heater
Rheem, Richmond, GE are good.
I prefer the AO Smith, American, State, Reliance, Craftmaster. Kenmore, Whirlpool brand since air intake screen is located on bottom of unit and can be inspected and cleaned without removing burner.

I have a Bradford White model# MITW50L6CX10, serial# TA4176718-130-131, 48 gal., gas, power vent. The vent is running constantly, and when the burner lights it burns erratically even going all the way out...


1) First suspects include Honeywell icon gas control valve, loose-or-bad wiring, and dirty burner parts.

2) MITW50L6CX10 blower number is 239-39785-00. Blower is working, but communication between blower and gas control valve are suspect.
Water heater has 6 year warranty
Water heater was manufactured January 1999.
http://www.bradfordwhite.com/findaserial.asp

3) Typical service manuals for M-1-TW-50 TTW series show how to test and replace Icon gas control.
Multimeter is required for testing.
Also shows how to clean burner parts and combustion chamber and air intake to catch up on regular maintenance.

It may just need a new pump coupling. Fairly inexpensive. I don't think you need to replace the whole burner.
