Running out of hot water I replace both heater coils and still seems like were running out of hot water the top coil has 230 volts going to it but the lower has no volts going to it jeff thanks


Hi,

Only one of the hot water heater elements will have power going to them at a time...
When the water at the top of the tank gets hot then the top thermostat should switch the power to the bottom one... this may not be happening...therefore you are only getting about a thrid of a tank of hot water...

There seems to be a flow problem. The pressure starts out fine and ends up a trickle but only on the hot side. I have used the T & P valve to try and back flush the unit , to no avail


In order to clean the unit you need to connect a small sump pump to the cold inlet, and run a hose from the hot side into the same bucket. Pour about a gallon a white distilled vinegar in the bucket, and turn the pump on. Let the solution run through the unit for about 15 minutes, then reverse the hose connections and run the pump for another 15 minutes. Reconnect the water supply and outlet. Turn the water on in the bathtub first on the hot side and let ir run for a few minutes before turning the power back on to the heater. While the water is still running turn the power back on and reset the thermostat. If you get a lot of debris in the bucket, you may need to consider installing a water-softener to prevent scaling.

If there is an electricity failure how can we have a hot shower


Easy answer is you cant on these units. These tankless units store no hot water and need a 240V power supply to operate.

However!
In some areas in far north Queensland I came up with a back up power unit (I used to work for Rinnai who make similar units). These were for remote units that used battery lighting and just wanted a bit of hot water for remote workers.

Basically you need a spare car batttery and an electrical inverter or a back up petrol generator. These hot water units only use a very small amount of electrical power even when that are operating. I had a guy run the hot water for nearly two weeks on a car battery and inverter after cycone Larry hit Innisfail in North Queensland.

Depends how often you get power losses as to how much money you want to spend to cover yourself (99.9999% don't bother with no real hassles).

Has it ever run? Is cold water going to cold water inlet? Hot out to hot water piping? Power ON? Control pad on? gas pressure correct?

Atwwod 10 gal gas/elec water heater won't work on elec.


THE LIGHTED SWITCH SHOULD BE THE 12V ENERGY SOURCE TO ACTIVATE THE LP SIDE OF THE HEATER. THERE SHOULDN'T BE A LIGHTED SWITCH FOR THE 110 SIDE. THERE SHOULD BE A SWITCH OR A COMBINATION OF SWITCHES. ONE ON THE WALL LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH AND ONE MOUNTED BEHIND THE HEATER.
