      Comments about Camco Water Heater Bypass Winterizing Kit:

      On my Attwood 6 gallon water heater I had to remove the electrical safety cover in order to install the tee shaped two way valve. Once the valve was installed the cover was re-installed. There was barely room to connect the bypass tubing to the valve due to tight clearances and the short length of the bypass tubing. The length of the bypass tubing kept me from orienting the valve so that the labels could be viewed when changing the valves position. Also the short length of the bypass tubing made the connection between the hot and cold sides was tighter than expected.

      If I would need to later service the electrical components of the water heater I would need to remove the bypass tubing to get the electrical cover off.

      Lastly using the Camco bypass kit the connections terminated as male pipe thread. These would not allow me to reconnect the existing plumbing. I then had to find and purchase additional adapter fittings to connect my boats hot and cold water tubing.

      For ten years I have been moving tubing connections to bypass the water heater for winterizing. I thought this was going to be an improvement. I am unsure. I am also concerned the valve and back flow preventer will reduce water flow in normal use.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I had no issue purchasing the product at West Marine.
