The company has designed a new drain-backflow adapter for Takagi on-demand water heaters. Previously, installation of the Takagi system included the use of a backflow preventer to keep cold air during the winter months from coming back through the vent and causing freezing issues. Along with this backflow preventer, a typical installation also required the use of a female-female adapter to connect the backflow preventer, as well as a condensate drain. This new, patent(s) pending all-in-one part incorporates individual design improvements made with these multiple parts. According to the manufacturer, this elimination of multiple product SKUs makes it easier for distributors to stock, while the single unit reduces installation time for contractors.
