On that WM EG30 boiler I'm installing, should I run two 2" risers into a 3" header. Or should I size it to a 2 1/2" header.

    Header

    ****Header Size per Maximum BTUH Output****

    (Based on Velocity of 15 ft/sec. to 20 ft/sec.)

    2" Header = 48,384 - 64,512

    2.5" Header = 68,832 - 91,776

    3" Header = 106,416 - 141,888

    4" Header = 183,312 - 244,416

    5" Header = 287,856 - 383,808

    6" Header = 416,016 - 544,688
