All gas appliances require adequate air intake
to ensure correct combustion. Insects and
dirt ingress may affect combustion causing
sooting. If you notice sooting from the flue
outlet the unit would require servicing. Pest
and dirt ingress is not covered by the
▶ Determine the most appropriate location for the appliance.
Install only on an external wall as close as possible to the
most frequently used hot water outlet.
▶ Ensure the mounting structure is capable of supporting the
weight of the appliance once installed. Secure the
appliance to the wall using fixings suitable for the weight of
the appliance and the wall material.
▶ Install gas and water isolation valves as close as possible to
the appliance. Only use a gate valve or full flow ball valve
(fixed mechanism type) for cold water.
▶ Check the cold water supply pressure to ensure it meets
the required supply pressure for the appliance. (see
table 5, page 9).
▶ If inlet water pressure exceeds 800 kPa a pressure limiting
valve (500 kPa) MUST be fitted. The preferable location for
the pressure limiting valve is at the water meter.
▶ Where the pressure limiting valve is less than 3 metres from
the hot water unit, it must be fitted in conjunction with a
cold water expansion valve (700 kPa), between the water
heater and the pressure limiting valve.
▶ Failure to comply with this requirement may void the
▶ Refer to AS/NZS5601 for the relevant gas pipe sizing.
▶ After finishing the gas piping system, the pipes must be
thoroughly purged and leak tested. This test must be
performed with the gas isolation valve of the appliance
▶ Ensure the gas pressure and flow through the regulator are
appropriate for the consumption of the heater (see table 5,
page 9). Refer to AS/NZS5601.1 for the relevant pipe size.
Note: Incorrect pipe sizing or gas supply pressure may cause
the appliance to under perform. Service calls for incorrect pipe
sizing and/or gas pressure, will NOT be covered under
