Before you undertake this project, you should know that you will not just need the orfices. You will also need a different gas valve.

gas valve part number is : r0096900 for propane ($300.00+)
orfice part number: L0032900 (set of 2) ($3.00)

As you can see, this gas valve is not cheap. The lite2 is a very reliable heater, but chances are that if its been out of service, yo will also have to replace the thermocouple which will be another $75-$100.

Its very unlikely that anyone at your local pool supply store will have the gas valve in stock. They will definately not have the orfice in stock. Your best bet if you still want to proceed is to purchase these parts off the internet. Just google Jandy pool parts. then goto a few sites, search for the part numbers i gave you, and check for the best price.

Can i convert jandy lxi heater 400k btu propane gas to natural gas ?


Any propane heater can be converted to natural gas and vice versa all you need is the correct regulator and orifices and possably a change to the exhaust. The problem is it is not something your average handyman should do. When dealing with gas or fumes it is always best to use a certified and insured repair man who has the proper test equiptment to check for leaks. Small leaks will not bubble with the "dish soap test" so you should always err on the side of caution.

I had purchased this unit RMO-80LPT heater several years back, I never installed unitl this week. the sales en at the time told me it was gas/propane. Now seeing the -80LPT on the side is it propane...


The orifices for a propane heater are much smaller so you will not be able to get the natural gas to flow properly with the current orifices.

The both the natural gas and propane valve are 1/2 psi so the valve can be used but the regulator for propane is typically 8-11 inches on the wc table and the natural gas is typically 3 lbs on the wc.

You may be able to drill out the orifices in the burner and in the pilot ods and get the unit to work.

How to convert from natural gas to propane


All stoves in this country come from the factory with orifices designed to use natural gas. To switch over to propane, the orifices have to be changed over. Contact your propane provider and they will obtain the proper orifices for your range. They may even install them for free. good luck.
