I have a BOSH tankless water heater at a camp. The water pressure is only 17 PSI as it is gravity fed from a 1200 water tank. How can I improve water pressure effectively ? Thanks Steeve


Pressure from a gravity system can only come from the height of the water tank above the height of the inlet to the heater. This difference is called "head". To get more pressure you need a greater head. You will need to raise the tank a minimum of 3'. Note: you could test the pressure using a hose, head is based on vertical height of water, and has nothing to do with volume of water.

Can i convert a Rheem ECO 180DVP (LP gas unit) to a natural gas unit ?


Rheem water heaters should not be converted from propane to natural gas. The burners have been optimized for the rated gas and will not work as well after conversion. (Unlike ranges where the gas/air flow ratios can be adjusted when the burner orifices and regulator are swapped, the water heater doesn't have that option.)

I wish I had better news for you. I recommend you get a new water heater for the LNG service; it will be safer and more efficient.

Can propane liquify inside the tank during temperature changes and therefore have proplems dispensing


Propane is liquid in your tank. The vapor pressure will depend on the temperature as you can see by the following chart. For an example at 0F the vapor pressure in the tank would be 24.5 psig. and at 90F it would be 150psig. This is why you draw vapor from the top of the tank and then go immediately go through a high pressure regulator. Then usually at the appliance there is also a regulator (sometimes incorporated in the safety valve) You are burning propane as a vapor not a liquid. Remember for safety that propane vapor is heavier than air and sinks to the floor, so one must be careful for proper ventilation.
