RV Water Heater Bypass Pressurized Hose and Fittings Kit
If you're not up for camping in the cold, you're going to need to winterize your rig. While a big part of this process is running the antifreeze through your water system, there is one place many people don't want the antifreeze to go: the water heater. While the antifreeze might not damage the water heater, it will take much more fluid to winterize it and it's just not necessary. If you want to get your RV ready for winter but not fill up your entire hot water heater tank with antifreeze, you'll need a hot water bypass. While these devices might look simple, they help to save you trouble as well as antifreeze fluid.
Comprised of a length of PEX tubing and crimp rings as well as a fitting for either side, the hot water bypass system is easy to use and install. The PPSU valves are more resistant to heat, aggressive water, and chemicals than normal valves are, extending the life of the system and further reducing stress. With the color-coded fittings, you can easily distinguish between hot and cold water inlets. Made in the USA, this RV hot water bypass system is NSF-61-9 Certified as well as UPC/NSF Component Certified.
When you're winterizing your rig for the season, you don't want to use more antifreeze than you need or make more trouble for yourself. To bypass this situation, you can use a hot water heater bypass. Have any questions? Contact us online or call our friendly Customer Care team today!
