Turn Off the Water Heater and Gas Supply

  • Ensure your Eccotemp tankless water heater is turned off.

  • Verify that the gas supply is also turned off.

Disconnect the Water Source Hose

  • Disconnect the water source hose from the water inlet pipe located on the far right of your Eccotemp water heater.

Remove and Clean the Filter Screen

  • The filter screen is located at the opening of the water inlet pipe.

  • Place your finger on the screen to remove any particles that may be obstructing the flow of water.

  • If the screen appears clogged or rusted, clean it by lightly scrubbing it with a metal wire brush, which can be found at most hardware stores.

Replace If Necessary

  • If your screen is missing, heavily corroded, or damaged, contact Eccotemp at 1-866-356-1992 or by email at [email protected] to order a replacement filter screen.

By following these steps, you can ensure your Eccotemp tankless water heater continues to function efficiently. For further assistance, please reach out to our customer service team.
