    Principle of Operation: When a hot water faucet is opened, the water flow through the heater causes the gas valve to open. At the same time the hydro-generator activates the electronics which sends a spark to the pilot. The flame sensor confirms the pilot has been lighted and allows the first two burners to come on.

    HOT WATER TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATES / UNIT DEACTIVATED 1. Unbalanced pressure in waterlines The added restriction caused by the 125 HX in the hot water system can result in uneven pressures between the cold and the hot. In such cases when mixing cold water at the tap, the lower hot water pressure may be overpowered by a much higher cold water pressure, which may cause the 125 HX burners to shut down.
