  • From Tailor Armstrong at 3/11/13 4:15 PM
    • How can I regulate my water temperature on my Triton Water Heater?
    • The heaters have a flow control and flame control. With the flame on high, and flow on high, you get a temperature rise of about 50-55F. With the flame on high, and the flow on low, the temperature rise is about 80-90F. You can adjust the valves to get any temperature rise in between.

    • great idea-but how do I use that WITHOUT being connected to a home pressure system?would it work with gravity feed?
    • Yes, the Triton water Heater will work with gravity flow. You will have to make sure there is enought height from the water source to get the 25-30 PSI and adequate flow so it will work. You will need about 75 feet high, from the water source to the unit, then try it on low.

  • From Rory at 4/4/13 7:34 AM
    • Does the Triton have to be mounted upright, or could it be mounted to the bottom of a table, with the hoses facing horizontal and the controls facing downward?
    • We do not recommend setting up the Triton Water Heater any other way but upright. There needs to be a 3 foot clearance around the entire unit, due to heat.
