I have a new water heater. However, its capacity

I have a new water heater. However its capacity needs a boost at times (like with a new jacuzzi tub). Can a tankless product be used to boost the amount of hot water when it is occassionally neeeded? Or is there another alternative?

You could fill with hot water first then add cold to your temp request.The thing to do would of been to buy the tub with its own heater

Hi,
No you cannot safely increase the output of a tankless water heater. The alternatives would be to install a heater in your Jacuzzi or to add a tank type water heater to hold water for the tub and then run the haot water from the tankles into the tank. This way all the tank is doing is holding water for you to use and not heating it. Kinda defeats one of the purposes of having a tankles though.
Only other option would be to exchange the tankles for a higher ouput one. Also an exspensive option.

Off peak hot water not heating!!! :(


The Economy 7 can control different types heater. Some heaters do not have off-peak ... but you can solve problem..
Copy following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/QE7-INSTRUCTION.pdf
If timer is wired to two different elements, then the night rate element or off-peak element might be burned out. Test element with multimeter.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
Also this timer is wired so either Off-peak is getting power or Boost is getting power, but not both at same time.
If heater has off-peak element, then there will be a wire connected to terminal 5, going to heating unit.
If there is no wire on terminal 5, then there is no off-peak element, or wiring has not been connected. However you can change the timer function by moving wire on terminal 4 to terminal 5. Then only the off-peak timer function will operate, and not the boost.
You can also fool the timer, by setting time clock differently. Instead of setting timer for current time, rotate the dial and fudge current time by 10-12 hours so water heater thinks it's time for boost, but the actual time is during off-peak hours.
If terminals 4 and 5 both have wires, then either the element is burned out, or the timer has malfunctioned. Again, you can fool the timer by setting current time differently, and solve problem.

Jacuzzi tankless water heater code 12 appears


For my Jacuzzi tankless water heater model #J-SN180F: It turned out to be an exhaust issue. If I take off the exhaust vent completely then the talks heater works with 3 baths at full hot water. I get the error code 12 again as soon as I put event an elbow of the vent. So my conclusion is I need some sort of straight vent.

My Jacuzzi won't turn off or heat


The heater will only fire if it has water in it. If you just got the house, make sure the gas/electric to the heater is on. Turn off the pump and turn it back on.. See if that works. good luck

No water hot


does it have a heater in the circulation line, it should be under the cover and would be in line on the 2 inch pipe that feeds the jets, it should also be on a gfci, check to make sure it is plugged in if this is plugged in and not tripped you need to install a new heater
