Water heater


Most instant-on tankless water heaters require at least 10 psi of water pressure to start the heating process. The flow of water determines how hot the water will be, within the heating range. An electric 110 volts heater will increase the water temperature about 25 degrees F. A gas water heater will increase the water temperature about 45 degrees F.
Too much flow will not allow the water time to heat. Too little flow will not allow the heating system to work. Each heater must have the outflow water flow adjusted for the best heating outcomes. The best way to find the ideal flow is to turn the hot water facet on and adjust it (open or close) until the water reaches the balance of producing hot water.

Flo ? for Flow Error?

That would for any number of reasons that the Flow Switch is not sensing enough water flow to trip the sensor/pressure switch or actual true water flow switch.

Heater will not run or heat, if there is not enough water flowing!
The heater will sense this. So, whatever will restrict or stop sufficient water flow is the problem.
  • Dirty filter
  • Closed valves
  • Not enough water in tub or pool - low water level
  • Clogged pump impeller
  • Clogged baskets:
    • at pump or at skimmers
  • Clog / stopped up plumbing line
And finally, you may have a bad flow switch/sensor

Low flow message on balboa 500z system


The low flow message on any Balboa means that you are having an issue with the flow of water through your heating unit. This can be caused by a few things.

  • Low water levels
  • Dirty filters
  • Something is impeding your water flow
Top up your water level and make sure it is where it needs to be, clean your filters or replace them, and check that nothing is impeding your water flow at the skimmer or water intakes.

I changed my filter, PUR 4396841 and now it is vibrating when I stop dispensing water. Any suggestions? Do I have it installed correctly?


The vibration is a tiny bit of "water hammer." Previous to your filter change, the water flow was restricted, and therefore incapable of causing water hammer. Now that you've changed the filter, the flow is large enough to cause a little water hammer when you shut off the flow.
How to fix: shut off the flow SLOWLY. Water hammer is caused when the flow of water is shut down quickly. This is just as true with large flows (as in fire engine pump panels), as it is in itsy bitsy
filtered water lines & filter housings.

I installed a dhc tankless heater, but when I open only the hot water everything is ok, but when I open the cold water at the same time the heater turns off.


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

What is happening is that your cold water flow is greater in volume (gals per min) than your hot water. So when you open the cold water it is mixing with the hot water inside the faucett or shower plumbing and actually reverse flowing back into the hot water heater plumbing. The reverse flow slows the water flow sensing turbine inside the heater and it is thinking that there is not any water flow. (There isn't actually due to the equalization of water pressure when you open the cold water faucett) Since this is a safety feature of the tankless heater to keep it from overheating, it shuts off.
Somewhere in the hot water plumbing there is a major restriction. It may very well be the internal plumbing of the tankless hot water heater or the flow detector design.

There are 2 ways to correct this. The easy way would be to restrict the available cold water flow. You can do this by installing another shut off valve inline with the cold water plumbing and just not open the valve all the way. You would have to adjust the setting so that the hot and cold water can be on at the same time and the hot water heater stays on. The hard way is to locate the hot water flow restriction and eliminate it.
It is possible.... if you have a flow restrictor in a shower head or a screen in a faucett areator that they are partially clogged. Clean any flow restrictors and screens then see how the hot water heater performs before you start modifying plumbing.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Rinnai R50LS- water doesn't heat, even though there is good flow.


If it's a new install: the water is going backwards through the heater and you need to check that your cold water IN is actually hooked up to the cold water IN spot on the heater. they don't register flow if the flow goes backwards through the heater.
If it's not a new install: something is stuck in your flow sensor, drain the unit and take it out to check.

When i turn on the cold water to adjust the temperature of water - the hot water turns completly off. I cannot turn on the cold water at all. It is either all hot water or all cold.


It might be a question of inadequate flow. All tankless water heaters have a minimum flow rate that must be met, typically .5-.9 gpm, before the heater will operate. In the summer time the incoming ground water temperature is higher, causing you to mix more cold water and less hot water to get a lukewarm temperature. This can reduce your flow rate near or below the minimum flow rate.
Here's a test for you, try running running a sink while taking your next shower. If the hot water remains mostly constant throughout, then your problem is with flow at the showerhead. The flow at a shower head can be reduced by buildup of scale and sediment. Also all showerheads have a flow restrictor that limits flow to 2.5gpm (some even less). Removing the restrictor will increase the showerhead flow rate as well.
Also look for any error code displayed on the digital read out of the heater. Some heaters will flash on their burner indicate light as well.

Water flow through humidifier


I installed this humidifier (and had a lot of trouble installing it!) and was surprised by the flow of water. Mine leaks out of the bottom of the unit so I haven't actually used it yet. I'll try to figure out why it's leaking this weekend. I thought there would be less water flowing through the pad. I suspect that the weight of the unit is causing it to not be plumb so some water is dripping off of the pad and past the drain tray.
