Condensate Drain - This is a fully condensing water heater and should be located near a drain to permit proper disposal of condensate.
Vent Termination - Exhaust gases of this water heater are less than 140 ºF. In cold climates, water vapor in flue gases will condense into a cloud of vapor where the vent exits the building. This vapor can gradually discolor exterior building surfaces. Vent termination should be located where this vapor cloud and potential discoloration are not a concern. Extending the vent termination up to 6" from the wall helps vapor from being trapped along a building's face. To avoid this problem, the vent can be terminated on the roof. Always locate vent termination above the maximum snowline, and do not locate vent termination above a walkway.
Air Intake - In cold climates, air intake should be located at least four feet from the vent termination of the water heater and any other appliance vents that discharge moisture-laden air (such as clothes dryers). This will help prevent freeze-over of the intake screen required to prevent foreign objects from entering the intake pipe. Air intake should be located above the maximum snowline.
Blockage Sensors - The water heater is equipped with sensors to shut it down if blockage of vent or air intake occurs. The water heater control system will display detailed diagnostic information on the LCD screen to help service technicians quickly locate and correct the problem.
Noise - Vent terminal should be located away from bedroom windows or other areas where blower noise will be objectionable. Avoid venting into corners or confined areas, which will amplify sound. Anchoring intake or vent pipe walls or ceilings can cause noise to be transmitted to living areas, and isolation mounts should be used where anchoring is required.
Optional Concentric Vent Kit - Helps to minimize unsightly wall/roof penetrations.

Down-Fired Low NOx Power Burner Design
Top-mounted radial burner design ensures optimum combustion efficiency.
Fully Submerged, Spiral-Shaped Condensing Heat Exchanger
Spiral shaped heat exchanger coils keeps hot flue gases swirling through the heat exchanger maximizing heat transfer and efficiency.
Spiral shaped heat exchanger reduces the accumulation of lime scale; maintains higher efficiency performance over time.
Standard Power Vent or Power Direct Vent Flexibility
Vertical or sidewall power-venting.
Vertical or sidewall powered-direct vent draws all combustion air from outside the building.
Vents using inexpensive PVC, ABS or CPVC pipe. Canadian installations require ULC S636 listed PVC or CPVC pipe for intake and exhaust.
Air intake and vent runs can be up to 120 equivalent feet.
Space-Saving Design, with Zero Clearance to Combustibles
Approved for installation on combustible flooring.
All Controls Including Gas Valve and Combustion Air Blower Located on Top
Provides easy access during installation and service.
Protects against high water damage.
Protected from dirt and incidental damage.
Advanced Electronic Control System
Microprocessor controls all water heater functions including ignition and temperature regulation.
Precise temperature control adjustable from 90 ºF to 180 ºF.
Large LCD display provides detailed operational and diagnostic information in plain English for ease of operation and service.
Ultra Force water heaters are iCOMM™ compatible and can be monitored from remote locations. Call 1.888.WATER02 for more information.
Powered Anodes (Standard on All Models).
Provide long-lasting tank protection.
Non sacrificial anodes never need replacing unless damaged.
Commercial Grade Glasslined Tank & Heat Exchanger for Long-Term Protection Against Corrosion
Heat exchanger glasslined on both water and vent sides to protect against corrosive flue gases and condensate inside the coil
