Product Info


Bradford White - Residential Atmospheric Vent Gas Water Heater

Bradford White ICON System™ - Intelligent gas control with proven millivolt powered technology and built-in piezo igniter. A standard, off the shelf thermopile converts heat energy from the pilot flame into electrical energy to operate the gas valve and microprocessor. No need for external electricity.
  • 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 levels
  • Intelligent Diagnostics - an exclusive green LED light prompts the installer during start-up and provides ten different diagnostic codes to assist in troubleshooting
  • Pilot On Indication - flashing green LED provides positive indication that pilot is on.
  • 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.
  • Advanced ScreenLok® Technology Flame Arrestor Design - flame arrestor is designed to prevent ignition of flammable vapor outside of the water heater
  • Resettable Thermal Switch - proven and reliable bimetallic switch prevents burner and pilot operation in case of ongoing flammable vapor burn inside of the combustion chamber or restricted air flow
  • Maintenance-Free - no regular cleaning of air inlet openings or flame arrestor is required under normal conditions
  • Sight Window - offers a view into the combustion chamber to observe the operation of the pilot and burner
  • Factory-Installed Hydrojet® Total Performance System - cold water inlet sediment reducing device helps prevent sediment build-up in tank. Increases first hour delivery of hot water while minimizing temperature build-up in tank
  • Vitraglas® Lining - Bradford White tanks are lined with 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)
  • Non-CFC Foam Insulation - covers the sides and top of tank, reducing the amount of heat loss. This results in less energy consumption, improved operation efficiencies, and jacket rigidity
  • Pedestal base
  • Water Connections - 3⁄4" NPT factory installed true dielectric fittings
  • Factory-Installed Heat Traps
  • Protective Magnesium Anode Rod
  • 3x4 “Snap Lock” Draft Diverter - allows either 3" or 4" vent connections with inputs of 40,000 BTU/Hr or less. Over 40,000 BTU/Hr. has the 4" “Snap Lock” Draft Diverter.
  • T&P Relief Valve installed
  • Low Restriction Brass Drain Valve - durable tamper-proof design
Warning: this product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer.
