    • I use a 1/3 HP water pump (in
      side a plastic drum filled with rain water) with a 12 foot water hose connected to the Triton. It (Triton) only works in low heat and (just a minimal over) low setting. any increase in heat or higher flow volume shuts off Triton. Please advise how to fix.
    • Red,

      It sounds to me that you are experiencing enough a drop in psi that the unit, for safety purposes, is shutting off. The requires a minimum of 25 PSI to operate. Any time the water psi drops below that it will shut off. I would suggest ensuring you have a minimum of 30 PSI going through the heater. That way, as you adjust heat/water flow, if there is a drop in psi it will be above the 25 min.

      If the issue continues, it could be a low-flow issues with your regulator. Low-flow is a built-in safety to prevent to much fuel going to your heater. To reset the regulator, turn off the gas and completely disconnect the regulator. Then, reconnect the regulator and open the valve a quarter to full turn and that will reset the regulator and resolve the issue.

      If the issue still continues, please contact our Customer Support at 800-650-2433 or via email at
