My Rinnai E50C installation experience

eddo Member Posts: 12
After lots of research online for the best options for my installation, I thought I'd post my experience. There seems to be fewer online posts and videos for Rinnai boilers compared to other brands, so I put together my installation notes and photos. This is not a recommendation, it's simply a list of the decisions I made and the components I used. The boiler is working great, condensing away most of the time.

    Interesting, am currently working through the E50 manual and a couple of Rinnai training manuals working out the settings I will use when we return from Mexico in the spring.
    The E50 is currently drained and lonely.
  • I agree: The 17 minute de-aeration routine that happens every time you turn the boiler off and then on again is a pain, but there's a work-around:

    Push the "Mode" button for 5 seconds.
    "C" and a number will show, push the up button until the number 123 shows.
    Push the snowflake button to store.
    Push the reset button.
    Often wrong, never in doubt.
