Description for Bradford White GX-1-TW-55S6SX

This High Performance Energy Saver series water heater provides incredible hot water delivery from a space saving, convenient package.

The Power Vent High Performance Model Features:

  • High Input Combustion System - Generates enough hot water in the first hour for whirlpool tubs, garden tubs or body sprays in addition to whole house duty.
  • High Recovery and First Hour Delivery - When tested to the industry standard residential first hour delivery procedure, the GX-2-TW-25S can provide 155 gallons and the GX-1-TW-55S will deliver 200 gallons.
  • Integrated Mixing Device - Features an accurate, easy to use hand wheel for adjusting mixed water temperature, a pre-piped stainless steel flexible connector for quick installation as well as optional water connections (1/2" NPT recirculation inlet, 1/2" NPT hot water outlet, 1/4" NPT cold water outlet). This required system is easily installed and ensures a comfortable outlet temperature while providing a steady flow of hot water.
  • Helical Fin Flue - Specifically welded fins slow down the products of combustion, optimizing increased surface area efficiency and the amount of heat transferred to the water.
  • Honeywell Self Diagnostic Electronic Gas Control - Intelligent gas control with spark to pilot ignition that eliminates the constant burning pilot. This results in savings of pilot gas during stand-by periods (120 V.A.C.).
    • Enhanced Performance - Proprietary algorithms provide enhanced First Hour Delivery ratings and tighter temperature differentials.
    • Advanced Temperature Control System - Microprocessor constantly monitors and controls burner operation to maintain accurate and consistent water temperature levels.
    • Intelligent Diagnostics - An exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting.
    • Pilot On Indication - Flashing green LED provides positive indication that pilot is on.
  • Factory Installed Hydrojet 2 Total Performance System - Cold water inlet sediment reducing device helps prevent sediment build up in tank. Increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature build up in tank.
  • Vitraglas® Lining - Bradford White tanks are lined with an exclusively engineered enamel formula that provides superior tank protection from the highly corrosive effects of hot water. This formula (Vitraglas®) is fused to the steel surface by firing at a temperature of over 1600ºF.
  • Powerful Blower Motor - Significantly quiet design has greater resistance to outside winds and the power to vent in many difficult venting situations.
  • Flammable Vapor Sensor - Electronic sensor prevents burner operation if flammable vapors are detected (not FVIR compliant).
  • 3/4" NPT Side Connections.
  • Horizontal and Vertical Venting - With 3" or 4" PVC, ABS or CPVC (maximum equivalent vent lengths on reverse side).
  • Non-CFC Foam Insulation - Energy saving insulation covers the sides and top of the tank, reducing the amount of heat loss while increasing jacket rigidity. GX-2-TW has 2" of insulation, GX-1-TW has 1" of insulation.
  • Water Connections - 3/4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings.
  • Two Protective Magnesium Anode Rods.
  • Pedestal Base.
  • T&P Relief Valve - Installed.
  • Brass Drain Valve - Durable tamper proof design.

Heater is a propane gas (LP) model and features a titanium stainless steel propane burner
