AO Smith water heater #FSG 50 248


Hi Again, I have had this never used water heater (mfg 2001) . I was once shipped an extra one by mistake and decided to not tell anyone of the error . I now would like to convert to LP, but what I have read in AO smith literature is that converting from Nat Gas to LP is prohibited. My question is, can I safely convert this to LP and what parts would I need and where can I get them?

Thanks!

Nobody here is likely to help you with that!
That manufacture is saying that the increase in gas pressure and calerific value with LG is not appropriate for that valve, main & pilot orifice. If it was a safely do able then they would have presented that possibility to help market that tank.

Like you said, if they could convert to lp, they would have done so to sell more units
