Default 95 WB-42 plumbing diagrams

Got tired of watching football and decided to draw. Let me know if there are errors. Learned most of this from winterizing for the first time last week. The schematics that come with the birds are great, but can be hard to read for the novice. Maybe these will be helpful to new owners in the future. I didn't show the inline filter on the functional diagram - because mine was removed. But I decided to add it on the other diagram - just to show where it would be.

Great drawing Clint. Might want to show the check valve going into the AH and the tempering valve.

Will do - wasn't even aware those existed. Where do they go? Most of what I re-drew on the bottom two came from the 'scan457' schematic.

They are within the AH, so probably not important to your drawing, but good to know about to diagnose hot water problems.

The "tempering valve is under the burner and mixes cold water with the hot water output prior to splitting it into the zones. The zone check valves are next to the quarter turn valves, but I don't know if they are on the hot side or return side of each leg.

I wish I had that diagram a few years ago. It would have saved a lot of time tracing pipes and figuring out what was what and what did what to what.

Ron, there is a check valve at the cold water entrance to the AH. Not sure why. The one of the reasons for the bladder is to absorb the expansion from the heated water, but looks to me like the check valve would negate that. Maybe smarter minds know.

I'll have to look for that inlet check valve. I don't recall seeing one, but that means nothing.

Ron, after reviewing every AH document I have, nothing shows the check valve. I wonder if BB just decided it needed to be in there. I may have the only one.

Clint,

When you are completely finished with the drawing convert it into a pdf file and send it to me at wanderlodgeownersgroup@gmail.com and I'll add it to our Database.

Okay, I took the cover off mine and found:
1: No check valve on the cold water inlet on mine.
2. Correction: The hot outlet splits into three legs with a pump on each and a check valve after each pump.
3. The leg return lines each have a ball valve.
4. Each leg has a small bleed valve just before the ball valve (on the leg side, not the A-H side).

Mallie, the only valve on the cold water inlet on mine is the tempering valve, right under the burner (just to make it a job to adjust).
