Tankless Water Heater Valve kit

So I’m gonna put a little backup  wrench on it and I’m just gonna use my  channel locks I’m gonna whine this  nipple in and again you notice how I’m  using them the wrench is to work against  each other this one is in one position  this one’s in a comfortable position  where I’m working it together rather  than getting them away from each other  to where it’s more difficult to control  and again just wind it in nice and tight  yeah okay I’m gonna turn this valve  handle out of my way now this one I’m  gonna go ahead and move the handle the  first time out of the way on this guy on  to hold him back  and again snug up your nipples okay.

Now this unit is completely reap reap  lumped and ready to be installed what I  want to show you though is sometimes on  this one here we have a nice wide spread  on it real easy for the valves to go  directly on no problem you’ll notice  this other unit the valves the inlet and  outlet are a little bit closer and not  quite as convenient disease so in this  case what you would do is remove your  desk covers and means this is your hot  outlet it’s already this side of the  unit I prefer to keep my plumbing inside  to you so you were just simply teflon  paste teflon tape up that thread throw  on a 90 degree street fitting like this  and from there you would do what’s  called a simple offset and you would  throw it on this other fitting here  and not your valve setup here and here  so it’d be the same thing you did here  but now you’ve just done a little offset  on it to make it more convenient a  little easier to work the valves once  they’re in operation okay one last thing  to install here before we complete our  pre Flom which is called the relief  valve this relief valve is a safety  valve it’s majorly important that.

You do  not forget to install this this is what  protects you and your system from some  sort of dangerous condition in your home  very important this valve goes in it is  a safety valve and it does protect you  and it must be installed anyhow  installation very simple threads into  this fourth port of your hot water valve  and as you thread it in again same  conditions hand tight as far as you can  and then a little backup ranch on the  connection you’re tying into you and  again wrench is working together as  opposed to against each other now when  you’re trying this one in basically  you’re just gonna position it straight  down just like your other nipples are  because you want to have drainage off  this never can this drain up it has to  drain down it’s part of the code on it  part of which required as far as get  being a useful valve and also if it’s in  a position where it’s on its side or  something and you get water sitting in  there.

It’ll ride out that spring and it  won’t last as long as it should so it’s  always best to downward position for the  most part and it’s gonna drain off now  we’ve completed our pre pump we’re ready  to hang this unit on the wall okay now  we have our unit mounted on the wall  once it’s up on the wall you’re going to  have your rough-in in this case this was  a new rough-in where you can make your  connections and you get to choose where  they’re gonna be so you can make it nice  Burdine just the way you like it but a  lot of times you end up doing a retrofit  or a replacement and a lot of times you  might have a boiler water heater that’s roughed  in high and basically it be the same  scenario as far as connections to the  unit goes but when it comes to these  flex lines this is what would change  they come in a variety of sizes they  come from two foot up to six foot eight  foot in length and again these are  products that are available through  Charmin.

So you can always order these  products through us as well next I’m  gonna go ahead and connect the unit up  basically you’ve got your relief line  here which is your safety valve one I  said is very important to make sure this  is tied in and has a downward grade to  it so all I’m gonna use is use this flex  line it has a rubber gasket in it  already so you don’t need any teflon  tape or paste and you just bring it  right up kind of position it in line it  up with those threads and you go ahead  and tie it in so you want to bring it in  nice and hand tight first and you’ll  feel that that gasket will bottom out  and meet that nipple nice and clean and  you can feel that it’s tight down to  base there’s no gap in there and you’ll  do the same thing this is our hot water  valve I’m going to turn it to this side  just to give me better access that  nipple and do the same thing again I’ve  got a flex line.

I’m just gonna roll it  up into place the threads where they  start and you kind of heard that click  you might have picked up on it and those  threads do engage they tend to make a  clicking noise when they’re on the right  spot so that kind of gives you a hint  now say you might have the right spot of  the wrong spot okay take that up nice  and snug  again cold water valve same thing  relocate the position and a handle maybe  yourself some room start that female up  and again you’ll feel the bottom out  slack in it nice and tight good  same thing on your gas connection right  up and again if it feels like it’s not  going on right play with it because you  don’t want to force it it should go on  straight and it should go on clean with  very little resistance by hand if it’s  not something is wrong so in this case  this one my Freddy is trying to give me  a fit so I need to be a little more  patient  let me put yourself a little better  angle and there she goes now you see  again nice and smooth no fighting it if  you’re fighting it there’s a problem  back off okay.
