Water Heaters FAQs

Water Heaters

Yes, Sioux has 1,000 and 2,500 gallon water tank packages available with either a 10HP or 15HP main discharge pump. An optional 3, 5, or 7.5HP secondary pump is available if you desire water for two different applications.  Tanks are available in either carbon or stainless steel material and with or without spray foam insulation.

Yes, Sioux offers blending valve packages that will allow you to use water from your heated storage tank and mix with cold water to fill side tanks.  This will help reduce the amount of high temperature hot water used to fill side tanks.

The motorized damper will automatically open when there is a call for heat before the burner turns on and will close when the burner turns off.  When closed, it deters cold air from coming down the exhaust directly onto the heating coil providing added protection during cold weather.
