In response to Re: High Altitude Water Heater Orifice
: I recently installed a LPG water heater at 8,000ft.
: It seemed like the gas pressure was so high that the flame on the burner was practically blowing itself out.
: I partially closed the valve on the gas line and this seemed to fix the problem.
: Is this an OK fix, or do I need to get a different orifice for the heater at this altitude?
: Thanks,

You would need to have the proper pressure regulator installed at the LP tank to protect any and all gas appliances that you may have.
Good Luck. e-plumber
