After moving my gas meter from inside the home to outside and having a semi concealed meter connected we cant get the combi boiler to work properly we can get hot water and have the gas fire on but

your boiler needs a minimum gas pressure of 16 mb to light successfully. if your gas pipe has been extended it has to be able to flow enough gas. it may need upgrading to 28mm for even as little as a metre from the gas meter. if your central heating works ok when the fire is off then this is your problem

New tankless bosch unit, luke warm h20, gas line 1 inch direct to tankless, gas company came and gas psi ok. Plumber said we can not adjust the gas pressure above 5.5 inches of water at the meter. hel

1) Add tempering tank to preheat incoming cold water.

2) Read product manual or call Bosch to make sure unit works with pre-heated incoming water. Some incoming water sensors will not trigger combustion is incoming water exceeds certain limit.

2a) Read product manual for required yearly/monthy maintenance.
Train wife to delime tankless yearly.

3) Install bigger gas meter.

4) Solve entire moneypit problem today for $325

5) Don't install tankless unless you have a lot of money and time for headaches.
Don't believe promotional literature. Tankless promotion is BS for average do-it-yourself folks who want to save a buck on water heating. Estimated yearly saving of $100 means Tankless do not save money long term. All costs are energy: Purchase price and installation negates several years saving up front. One repair will negate another 5-8 years energy savings. By then you need new unit.

I have the rheem pronto in one of my rentals and the water is cold all the time. Help!!!

3 items possibly:# 1) has that gas company turned off the gas lately to do some work?,and then re-fired the water heater after the work was completed? if so,check the temperature setting on the unit,as most gas companies upon re-start of gas appliances on their line will just set them to LOW,so as not to have an insurance issue with a scalding problem(from someone setting it TOO HIGH) if set above LOW temperature./ # 2) it could be limed up in the bottom and not have the capacity anymore to heat the full capacity of the unit due to this issue & needs shutting down and draining and a fresh re-fill. / #3) if the unit won't fire after the pilot has been lit(held down to keep lit) and then turned to a heat setting from pilot,you can have a defective thermocouple temperature sensor in the flame not letting the gas valve open fully to heat the unit

check the thermal coupling for the pilot light. if it goes out it will shut down gas supply, its a safety feature to put out pilot light if the thermal coupling is bad. to prevent gas from leaking and causeing a fire. check coupling.

Rheem Eco-180dvn. Error code 12 -- interrupted gas or low gas supply. 1'' gas supply all the way to 3/4'' shut off valve at appliance. Gas company checked meter pressure: 275K btu meter with 7.1 psi at...

you shouldn't have 7.1 psi at the unit, they are built for about a half pound at the unit, how far is the unit from the meter? the meter might be a bit under sized, if you have 180k at the tankless on btu's then you have atleast 110k at your furnace that right there puts you over what your meter can handle, you add a fireplace or a dryer or even a stove then your quite a bit over! you also want to check your vent length, make sure your counting the bends because depending on the bend it could take anywhere from 3-6 feet off the allowable vent length.

Getting a code 11

yes you need to have 2lbs at the unit and a regulater to keep it from surging and keep steady pressure, the 1 inch line is good for volume but you need to have the pressure behind the volume the way these units pull gas thru the line it is vary important to have the pressure also,,
