    boiler

    Looks like that boiler should be in a pit.

    This is why drop-headers were invented. But, then again, knuckleheads think a dropped header is just a way to get a bruised toe.

    drop header

    A drop header wouldnt work there, He said there is 16 in of a dimention. It needs to be in a pit or needs a condesate pump.

    Header and pump

    In my opinion it needs a drop header and a condensate pump.

    Hartford Loop?

    It looks like a completely dry return to me. Probably not a good idea with that A dimension. It probably calls for water mid-cycle, so add "fluctuating water line" to the list of troubles.



    I'm not sure how you measured that A dimension. Is that from the max water line to the header? If there's more than 28" from the water line to the main a drop header should work.

    A dimension

    I measured A dimension from where the

    Feeder satisfies the lwco.

    At that point it was 2 in below Hartford loop

    Close nipple

    It was a toss up weather to raise up above

    Close nipple or get as much distance as possible.

    I would like to pipe the drip down into a wet return and then back to the boiler

    Customer doesn't want to do any work yet ???
