    It operates on the principle of heating water instantaneously “on demand”. When a hot water faucet is opened, cold water flows through the coils of the heat exchanger in the Aquastar. This same flow opens the gas valve, and the burners are ignited by the pilot flame.

    Confirm that your Aquastar is venting properly when all these other appliances are running. See section on venting.
  • Page 5: Combustion Air Requirements

    A wood stove or furnace can rob the make- up air in the AquaStar’s vent pipe, leaving the cold infiltrating air capable of freezing the cold water in the AquaStar heat exchanger.
  • Page 6: Mounting The Heater

    MOUNTING INSTALLATION The Aquastar 125 B “S” is design certified for mounting on a wall. Secure the two L shaped hooks provided with the heater to a wall surface. Place them 13 ¼ inches apart as shown in Fig 1. Do not install this appliance on a carpeted wall or over floor covering which is combustible, such as carpet.
  • Page 7: Venting The Heater

    VENTING Vent pipe connection. WARNING: Do not reduce the vent pipe size. See Fig. 3 for high altitude installations The heater must be vented to the outside following all local ordinances and specifications for installing a gas appliance vent or chimney. The heater must be located as close as practicable to a vertically rising chimney or vent that has a listed vent cap at its termination point.
  • Page 8 : Masonry chimneys shall be built and installed in accordance with NFPS 211 or local codes. A MASONRY CHIMNEY minimum 5” diameter gas vent pipe (metal double wall Type B), or an approved clay flue liner or a listed chimney lining system must be used when venting into a naturally drafting, internal masonry chimney.
  • Page 9 WARNING Note: The burners of an instantaneous “on demand” water heater such as the AquaStar are only on at the time that hot water is actually being used, the vent pipe is therefore cold except for the short durations when hot water is being...
  • Page 10: Gas Connections

    GAS CONNECTIONS and Gas Regulator NOTE: The Aquastar 125 B”S” is supplied with a gas pressure regulator that must be installed on the heater before attaching the gas supply line. See figure 5. Failure to install the gas regulator as shown in figure 5 will be a violation of CSA certification of the unit.
  • Page 11: Water Connections

    -It is strongly recommended that the Natural Gas pipe be Black Iron pipe the entire distance from the outside meter to the inlet of the Aquastar regulator. 1/2” Black Iron pipe up to 10 feet, 3/4” Black Iron pipe up to 40 feet and 1”...
  • Page 12: Safety Before Lighting The Pilot

    Connecting the pressure relief valve (PRV) A listed pressure relief valve supplied with the heater must be installed at the time of installation. No valve is to be placed between the PRV and the heater. No reducing coupling or other restriction may be installed in the discharge line.
  • Page 13: Information On Water Temperature

    INFORMATION ABOUT WATER TEMPERATURE The AquaStar 125B LPS and 125B NGS water heaters have a gas control that modulates burner output in response to water flow. Its purpose is to ensure that the hot water temperature will remain steady, although the water flow demand might vary (down to 1/2 gal/minute).
  • Page 14: Trouble Shooting

    TROUBLE SHOOTING (see maintenance table) Introduction The AquaStar 125 B “S” burners are activated by a water flow valve. Numerous water related problems can cause this water valve to malfunction such as: Insufficient water flow volume to activate the burners at its minimum flow requirement;...
  • Page 15 The crossover will create a back pressure in the system preventing the pressure drop in the Aquastar — i.e. cold water is entering the water heater from both sides and the burners will not come on.
