I have 2 other topics posted about equipment and quotes. The installer looked at my heater and didn't say much about the placement of the cell, as if there's plenty of room. I'm posting a pic of the area around the heater due to what the install manual says for the IC-40.
"The ICEG should be no closer than three (3) feet away from the heater outlet. For best flow sensing, provide at least 12"-18" of straight pipe in front of the cell inlet."
I'm just curious as to if this is possible. Is it worth running an extra several feet I pipe to ensure it meets these guidelines. I'd just like an idea of the best way to do it so that I can present it to him. I'm afraid if I don't, he'll just slap it in.
On another note, there is no heater bypass. My understanding is all the water flows through the heater. The installer said it was better that way. Is that true, even with an SWCG?
Thanks for all the help. I'll be upgrading to platinum very soon. The information provided on this site is invaluable!!!!!
