THERM Tankless Water Heater Applications Manual
9.1 Cascading unit applications
A cascading application should be considered if the potential hot
water demand exceeds the capacity of one gas tankless water
heater. The cascading set up supports variable ﬂ ow inputs and is
designed for large homes and commercial applications. Cascading,
unlike other parallel applications, maintains the activation ﬂ ow rate
of a single appliance.
Intelligent Cascading allows up to twenty four appliances to be
connected in parallel. One of the appliances will serve as the
controlling primary appliance and will attempt to meet the hot water

Example: A 7 unit cascade installation includes 1 primary appliance
and 6 secondary appliances. 6 intelligent cascading kits
