Nice Unit - Delivered to Door

Comments about 50 Gallon ProMax Direct Vent Residential Water Heater:

I bought this unit to replace a State Industries direct vent that was leaking after 12 years. Reviews seemed to indicate a relatively short life for the State WH, so I decided to try the AO Smith DV50.
Delivery Delivery was to my driveway and was easy, accurate (they were there when they said) and the unit was in excellent condition. Installation (done by me) was straightforward and the manual was well written and the illustrations good. I reused the State wall penetration since it was still in excellent condition and changing the wall penetration is time consuming and complex. The pipes matched perfectly and the unit operates fine.
Lighting was straightforward – a note urging patience (up to 90 seconds to purge air from the gas pipe) was very helpful as it did take 55-60 seconds.
The outer exhaust pipe got quite warm during initial heating run but no problems was seen. Unit has been in and operating for a week now with no problems. In 15-20 years I'll know whether or not the unit's longevity matches the other reviews. If it does, I'll add the fifth star.

    Q:

    How come I cannot get the temp regulated? When set to recommended setting I run out of hot water and when I set it up a notch its so hot at times it will burn your skin.

      A:

      It sounds like you may need to install a tempering valve in the system to prevent scalding.
