Hello
I have a Rinnai B24 Natural Gas Hotwater System ( Model No: Reu-VR2426WB-50-AK and Serial No: 1L07-005980 } and want to use it at my relocatable home which has bottled gas. I believe that I can purchase a converter kit and have it installed. Can you please advise if this is correct.
Thank-you.

Nick : Hi there, how are you?
Nick :

You do mean propane when you say bottled gas right?

Nick :

If so then yes there should be a conversion kit that you or a qualified technician can install. You should be able to find this through a local plumbing supply store or through rinnai themselves. Or if you have a technician do it he should be able to find it for you.

Customer:

Hi Nick

Nick :

Hello

Customer:

Thank-you Nick. Is this a complicated process or am I best to but/have installed from new. Not being cheap but trying to monitor costs.

Customer:

Sorry mean't buy/have installed.

Nick :

It can possibly be complicated if you don't know what you're doing and attempt yourself. Are you trying to avoid hiring someone to do this for you?

Customer:

No Nick. Would not dream of it. Just questioning perhaps false economy. Was able to purchase Rinnai B24 for $265.00 which I appreciate is way below normal RRP although used but in excellent condition.

Customer:

Just not sure of what costs to expect.

Nick :

I'm not sure what the price for the kit would be, I would imagine about $100,-$200 got the part. It would be chapter to buy the part from rinnai yourself then hire a plumber to install it. My company charges a $49 service call plus $60 an hour for labor plus parts

Customer:

Also just checking that the $54.00 is a one off cost as not interested or need a monthly subscription. Thank-you. Appreciated.

Nick :

It's a one time payment. The number for rinnai is(NNN) NNN-NNNN Are there any other questions?

Customer:

Hi Nick

Customer:

Thank-you Nick. You have been most helpful. Can I please have your company name so as I can persue installation if and when necessary.

Customer:

Regards
