be sealed gas-tight to prevent flue gas
spillage, carbon monoxide emissions
and risk of fire, resulting in severe
personal injury or death. Approved vent
terminations must be used.

▶ Field wiring connections and electrical
grounding must comply with local
codes, or in the absence of local codes,
with the latest edition of the National

over pressure.
▶ The heater must be disconnected from
the gas supply piping system during any
pressure testing of that system at test
pressures equal to or more than 0.5 psi.
▶ The appliance should be located in an
area where leakage of the heater or
connections will not result in damage to
the area adjacent to the appliance or to
lower floors of the structure. When such
locations cannot be avoided, it is
recommended that a suitable drain pan,
adequately drained, be installed under
the appliance. The pan must not restrict
combustion air flow.

not exceed the value specified by the
manufacturer and the minimum value
listed is for the purpose of input
▶ If a water heater is installed in a closed
water supply system, such as one
having a backflow preventer in the cold
water supply line, means shall be
provided to control thermal expansion.
Contact the water supplier or local
plumbing inspector on how to control
this situation.
WARNING: Fire danger!
▶ Keep appliance area clear and free from
combustible materials, gasoline and
other flammable vapors and liquids.
