Alright, I relocated my old John Wood 40 gal nat. gas heater to the basement of my house. Prior it was on the first floor and vented out through the roof w/ B-vent. However, now no chimney, so like any other plumber I found some old parts that I had kept and converted this heater to a power-vent. After a little trial and error finding the right blower, it has been working fine for about 6 months. Anyways, to my question. The gas valve is the A.O. Smith smart valve with the six green indicator lights to adjust temperature. My question is can I remote locate the temperature controls for this gas valve, how does the valve come apart, how many wires, etc? I have quite a large whirlpool tub and would like to be able to adjust the temperature up shortly before filling the tub to assure that there would be enough hot water. I was hoping to remote mount this control somewhere near the tub, saving myself a trip up and down the basement stairs. I have to enter the basement through an outside door and it is tough in the winter to do so. Plus I thought it would be pretty cool to have control over the water temperature from upstairs.
