The Power Direct Vent Models Feature:
■ ENERGY STAR® Qualified—Some models qualify for the September 1, 2010
minimum ENERGY STAR® EF requirement, as well as most utility rebate programs.
■ Bradford White ICON System™—Intelligent gas control with spark to pilot ignition
system eliminates the constant burning pilot. This results in savings of pilot gas during
standby 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 consistent and accurate water temperature
— Intelligent Diagnostics—An exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during
start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting.
— Separate Immersed Thermowell—High-strength advanced polymer composite
thermowell provides isolation between electric temperature sensor and surrounding
water. No need to drain the tank when removing gas valve.
■ Closed Combustion Venting System—Power Direct Vent models are ideal for
installations which lack sufficient are for combustion, such as new construction
homes or additions which are tightly insulated. These models use a twin pipe system
where combustion air is drawn from outside the building in one pipe, and combustion
products are expelled to the outside in another pipe.
■ Cast Aluminum Air Intake Boot—A cast molded air intake boot design provides
exceptional durability during installation and operation.
■ Horizontal and Vertical Venting—PVC, ABS, or CPVC. The equivalent feet of intake
venting cannot be greater than the equivalent feet of exhaust venting.
■ Optional Concentric Vent Kit Termination—Termination fitting provides for only one
exit opening through a wall or roof. (Subtract 10ft. for intake pipe and 10ft. for exhaust
pipe when calculating total vent length.)
■ Flammable Vapor Sensor—Electronic sensor prevents burner operation if
flammable vapors are detected. The sensor will also prevent burner operation if
there is an ongoing flammable vapor burn inside the combustion chamber (excluding
■ Factory-Installed Hydrojet® Total Performance System—Sediment reducing device
that also increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature buildup
■ Vitraglas® Lining—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 1600°F (871°C).
■ Insulation System—2″ (51mm) Non-CFC foam insulation covers the sides and top
of the tank, reducing heat loss. This results in less energy consumption, improved
efficiencies, and jacket rigidity.
■ Water Connections— 3⁄4″ (19mm) NPT factory-installed true dielectric fittings extend
water heater life and simplify water line connections.
■ Side Connections— 3/4″ (19mm) NPT tappings allow easy connections for space
heating applications (Potable water only) (RG2PDV50H6N & RG2PDV75H6N only).
■ Factory Installed Heat Traps—Design incorporates a flexible disk that reduces heat
loss in piping and eliminates the potential for noise generation.
■ Protective Magnesium Anode Rod—Provides added protection against corrosion for
long-term, trouble-free service.
■ T&P Relief Valve—Installed.
■ Low Restriction Brass Drain Valve—Durable tamper-proof design.
