Bosch aq 125 no water preasure


Clean water filter yearly or monthly. Page 16 example manual.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Bosch-125BO-NG-LP-outdoor.pdf
Shut off the installer supplied cold water supply valve.
Disconnect water pipe going to the back of the water
valve. Remove filter from back of water valve. Clean the
filter and inspect for damage. Replace if the filter is at all
damaged. Inspect the top of the water valve for signs of
a water leak or corrosion. If present, rebuild the water
valve.

Can anyone tell me why my ISE GN1100 Hot tap is spitting when the handle is pulled back to release the water?


Usually happens when the temperature is set too high, check your instruction book and set it to the advised temp. Also the filter in the nozzle may need a clean.

The instructions on my Richmond tankless water heater talk about cleaning a water filter but give info on where it is or how to remove it I have a rmtgl74pvn


The manual may be suggesting that you clean in-line water filter installed before tankless unit.
Tankless might also have a screen filter where water enters unit.

What is this white crustie stuff coming from my water lines, and hiow do I fix it?


It is usually calcium-carbonate and lime.
Once the stuff gets into water lines, it can clog elbows and pipes and cause low water pressure.
If pressure is good, then clean out faucet aerators, and install water softener/filter
Generally a water-softener and filter can solve future problems.

If you have tankless water heater, then delime the unit:

If you have tank-type water heater, then clean out the unit

When the hot water is turned on it makes a groaning sound and when turned off makes it again


how old is the Rinnai?
might have deposites formed preventing it from working properly
also check the inline water filter, this should be cleaned out once in a while
do you have the instructions?

might need to be flushed out. takes a little time about 5 gallons of vinegar and a small pump
I recently ran one through flushing, ran about 2 hours before it was flushed clean.

The hot water just trickles out of the hot water taps, I've checked & cleaned the tempering valves, mains water pressure is fine, is the cylinder scaled or blocked


Something is blocked. Turn off water to heater disconnect outlet and attach a waterheater flex connector to tank outlet bend other end into bucket. turn on water briefly - water should blast into bucket.
If not:>>>>>>>>>> disconnect water heater inlet -you may find part of the flex washer stuck into the inlet nipple. Or dip tube may have disintegrated and be plugging outlet nipple, if you have the energy saving nipples the ball can jam debris in the nipple.
If water does blast into bucket >>>>>>>>>>>> Then the problem is farther down the line, maybe bad mixing valve. disconnect mixing valve outlet and use a garden hose to backflush through mixing valve with bucket under hot pipe disconnected from water heater. If flow through valve is restricted, replace valve.

Tankless water heater (Paloma) Has C2 11 error


I had this problem with the C2 11 error code. My unit is 1.5 years old. I called Paloma and they emailed me an 11 page document to clean the burners. I am not an HVAC but I got the feeling that's who the instructions were for. Very difficult but you can do it if you're handy. You basically take apart 1/2 the unit, be carfull not to lose any screws and label all the little brackets that come off. It took me 2-3 hours to get to the burners. I used a can of air (for keyboards-electronics) to blow on the burners and clear any build up. After putting it back together (carefull to make sure the 3 gas tubes make a seal when re-installed) the unit works. I did this today so I'm not sure the unit will still work in a week/month. I am dreading having to do this every year to keep the unit running.

Sediment in lines -Bosch Tankless Water heater


I would recommend a simple sediment filter housing be installed on the main water line coming into the house. Material cost about $100. Have a plumber install a bypass loop so you can just shut off 2 valves when you need to change it. I always install one with any tankless heater as cheap insurance against such a problem. As far as adding something to clean the lines I would refer to the manufacturer's instructions and use only what they recommend in order to preserve your warranty. For a solar water heater I prefer Velux.

Please rate if this helps-
