Hello everyone. I am new to this site. It is because of this website
that I was made aware of my steam boiler installation. After reading
several post here I realized my steam boiler was installed without a
header. I bought the book "We got steam" to make sure of what I was
looking at. It even states in the book that today's install guys do not
know how to correctly set up steam boiler piping. This is the letter I
had to send to Peerless in hopes of proving my boiler install is
incorrect. Is it possible for the guys here to tell me if my piping is
bad? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.
LETTER SENT TO PEERLESS:
How are you. I need your help. I had a boiler installed by a heating
company a few years ago. At the time I had no idea what the correct
boiler piping installation should look like. I recently became aware
that my steam boiler was installed without a header. My radiator steam
vents have always spit water and I could never figure out why. This is
what lead me to trouble shoot my heating system. I downloaded the
manual for the Peerless 63-64 installation and it clearly shows how the
riser and header should look (now that I know). My boiler looks
absolutely nothing like your install manual. I went into one of the
heating company locations and the install manager looked at the photo
and agreed it was wrong. A service man was sent out to look at my
boiler and he agreed it was wrong. An agent for the company called me
later telling me someone would return again to correct the improper
install. Today 5 Dec 2012 the installation guys show up and agree it
was done wrong. They take measurements and promise to return with
materials to start working. Instead I receive a call from the owner of
the company. He told me that he feels that my boiler was installed
correctly and that there would be no work done by his company. The only
way he would agree to do the work is if the Peerless company tells him
that it is done wrong. I have photos of the boiler and piping that I
can send you to show that there is no header. Please advise me on this
installation. If there is a Peerless rep that can come to my home I am
waiting. Thank you. Marlon.
