Yes it can be converted, but if you just connect the tank, "letting her rip", will be about the best way to describe what will happen. You will have a HUGE flame and probably burn the house down. To make the conversion you must change the orifice in the main burner and the pilot burner. The thermostat pressure regulator will be set for a lower pressure than an LPG thermostat but will supply the necessary amount of gas anyway, but if the flame is insufficient then an LP thermostat can be installed.

: Can a water heater that uses natural gas be safely converted to use butane gas? If so, is it just a matter of connecting the tank and letting her rip? Thanks!
