Intelligent Control Logic

The internal microprocessor provides enhanced operating parameters and tighter differentials for precise sensing and faster heating response to optimize performance.

DynaClean™ Diffuser Dip Tube

Thanks to the improved technology, the inlet tube features water jets that redirect incoming cold water into the tank, creating turbulence, which helps reduce lime build-up, therefore maintaining heater efficiency.

Self-Powered Electronic Gas Valve

Uses a thermopile to generate the power needed to operate the electronic gas control without requiring an external power source.

Diagnostics

The electronic gas control incorporates an LED status indicator that monitors system operation and service diagnostics.
