_WARNING
HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD: Water
heaters are
intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a tem-
perature which will satisfyspaceheating, clotheswashing,
dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald and
permanently injure you upon contact. Some people are
more likely to be permanently injured by hot water than
others. These include the eldedy, children, the infirm, or
physically/mentally handicapped. If anyone using hot
water in your home fits into one of these groups or if
there is a local code or state law requiring a certain tem-
perature water at the hot water tap, then you must take
specialprecautions. In addition to using the lowest possi-
ble temperature setting that satisfies your hot water
needs, a means such as a mixing valve, shall be used at
the hot water taps used by these people or at the water
heater. Mixing valvesare available at plumbing supply or
hardware stores. Follow manufacturers instructions for
installation of the valves.Before changingthe factory set-
ting on the thermostat,
read the "Temperature
Regulation"section in this manual.
The illustration shows the attachment of the water piping to the
water heater. The water heater is equipped
with ¾ water
connections.
If a water heater is installed in a closed water supply system;
such as one having a back-flow preventer, check valve, water
meter with a check valve, etc. in the cold water supply; means
shall be provided to control thermal expansion. Contact the
local utility or local Sears Service Center on how to control this
situation.
NOTE: If using copper tubing, solder tubing to an adapter
before attaching the adapter to the cold water inlet connec-
tion. Do not solder the cold water supply line directly to the
cold water inlet. It will harm the dip tube and damage the
tank.
• Look at the top cover of the water heater. The water outlet is
marked hot. Put two or three turns of teflon tape around the
threaded
end of the threaded-to-sweat
coupling
and around
both ends of the %" threaded
nipple.
Using flexible connec-
tors, connect the hot water pipe to the hot water outlet of the
water heater.
• Look at the top cover of the water heater. The cold water inlet
is marked cold. Put two or three turns of teflon tape around
the threaded
end of the threaded-to-sweat
coupling
and
around
both ends of the %" threaded
nipple. Using flexible
connectors,
connect
the cold water pipe to the cold water
inlet of the water heater.

NOTE:
Your water
heater is super
insulated
to minimize
heat loss from the tank. Further reduction
in heat loss can be
accomplished
by insulating
the hot water lines
from the
water heater.
