Hot Water Heater Wind Guard


Thanks to Dave at Pop-Up-Times, We were selected to test a water heater "Wind Guard" made by Marsh Products.  We have had problems in the past with wind blowing out the pilot light on the water heater so this was an excellent item to test.  I found it extremely easy to install, with clear easy to read directions.  

We camped with the wind guard 6/11/2001, spending the entire weekend without the pilot blowing out once!!

I continued to use this product until I traded in the pop up in July 2004.  On rare occasions the wind would blow in an unusual direction and extinguish the pilot, but that was a rare occasion.

6/1/02 Please note that there have recently been reports of the wind guard directing heat onto adjacent plastic parts and deforming them.  I would recommend not using this wind guard if your water heater door or adjoining side panels are made of plastic.  It is my understanding that Marsh Products is looking into this issue.
