Rheem heaters are built with many innovative features. The Model 156 includes the below and more!
- Natural Gas Powered: This unit is powered by natural gas.
- Energy Level: 150,000 BTUs
- PolyTuf Textured Powder Coating: The Rheem gas heater has a polyester-coated, non-corrosive cabinet that is more durable than solventborne- and waterborne-coated metal cabinets. Every piece of sheet metal goes through a 7-stage wash system, making certain the powder paint has a perfect bond. Underneath the tough, yet beautiful finish you will find galvanized metal that offers superior rust prevention and years of durable service.
- Wind-Resistant Design: No need for fans to combat drafting problems. This heater is designed to draft naturally in outdoor installations with its exclusive low-profile design. It is so thoughtfully and carefully designed it actually protects itself from the things that tend to stifle ordinary pool and spa heaters. It delivers uninterrupted heating performance regardless of falling leaves, wind, airborne debris, rain, downdrafts, updrafts, sleet, snow, etc.
- Polymer Headers: Polymer headers prevent rust stains from harming your pool’s surface, giving you years of trouble-free swimming pleasure.
- All-Copper-Fin-Tube Heat Exchanger: The fin tubes of the heat exchanger are each made from a single piece of extruded copper. This integral-fin design allows maximum heat transfer to be attained and maintained. Cupro-nickel is also available as an optional upgrade.
- Controls: The 156 is available standard with Rheem’spropriety AFT digital control. This control handles all the safetyfunctions of the heater as well as the electronic ignition and flamesupervision. State of the art diagnostic reporting and fault recording.This is the same control we use in our bigger gas pool heaters. Only thebest will do for the model 156. The electronic ignition system requiresexternal power (120VAC or 240VAC) and generates a pilot only when thereis a call for heat. Units come with a 3 foot, 3 prong power cord.
- 2" Water Connections: Supplied with every Rheem 156 heater is a set of 2" flange connections to make your installation secure and effortless.
- Automatic Bypass: The Rheem 106 comes standard with a built in water bypass so it can handle different GPM’s without having to adjust your flow rates manually. The bypass also helps keep a constant engineered flow through the tubes to help reduce condensation caused by cold water.
- Burner Tray: Every burner tray is built to last, from thestainless steel burner deck to the aluminized metals used in the heatsensitive areas. Innovative design allows for the easy removal of thetray for servicing.
- Fire Tile: A ceramic fiber combustion box keeps your heater running efficientlywhile keeping the outside jacket cool. By using this space-age materialthe heater won't retain residual heat after it is turned off, allowingit to be installed without the use of costly metal heat sinks.
