Wholesale Tankless is proud of the introduction of “The Wall Saver Pan”, the first drain pan specifically designed for tankless water heaters and other wall mounted equipment complete with drain line adapter.
A drain pan is required by most plumbing and mechanical codes and until now there was no pan available that met the needs of the tankless water heater and wall mounted boiler industries. This drain pan provides both leak and splash/spray protection to the structure while maintaining one of the most popular reasons for using tankless equipment of space savings. The pan mounts to the wall below the unit or the unit may be installed partially within the pan. The pan also provides a location for the discharge of relief valves (If allowed by local code) and provides a location to install other popular safety accessories that can sense the presence of water and alarm or close valves serving the equipment.
You should install a pan and drain, so why not make the installation look Professional?
The Wall Saver is designed and manufactured in the USA of impact resistant, polymer material. It is lightweight, affordable and reliable.
The drain pan is to be attached securely to the wall below the lower mounting bracket of the equipment being served. As an option, the equipment being served may be mounted in such a way as to position it within the limits of the rear and side splash guards as required for maximum protection. Mounting holes are at 16" centers to help make installation easier. However, the pan may be attached at any point as needed by screwing through the rear splash guard to the structure. Care should be taken when attaching the pan or the water heater to not crush the rear strengthening ribs on the backsplash as damage may occur.The flat area above the vertical ribs is for attaching the pan, water heater or mounting boards.
If mounting boards are to be used for the equipment the pan may be installed with the top edge of the board against the bottom of the mounting board or the top section of the pan may be trimmed along the sides up to 3-1/2" to allow for the drain pan to have the boards mounted over the top of the drain pan, placing the unit partially within the pan. A score line is provided at this point on the sides of the pan.
Pipe penetrations may be made through the rear or side splash guards as needed, however for maximum splash and leak protection piping should be run to the equipment around the drain pan. No penetrations shall be made below the catch basin rim line. Any penetrations made must be sufficiently caulked to maintain maximum moisture protection.
For drain connection: Use a typical PVC 1" MIP adapter fitting, washer and retainer (Included) as used on other drain pans. Drains may connect together into a common drain pipe to discharge to either the outside of the structure or a suitable drain location. No traps should be installed in the drain piping from the pan.
