I have only seen one and it was a system that was purchased over the internet, after two years of not enough domestic hot water(about two minutes of shower water) I was called in to try and fix it, to make a long story short after changing the control system per Manufacturer specs and this did not solve the issue the customer was sent a Takagi wall hung water heater which I installed, now they have hot water after another couple thousand dollars.

    I was quoted a Quietside boiler and never heard of it. I was impressed with the features but not sure of it. Hope someone can help me. Thanks Tony

    i talked to a guy at the home show last week...*~/;)

    actually i went there for the :BBQ ribs, Shish ka bobs, Prawn s ona stick, and all the free ;carpenters pencils, hats, rulers, pens and t shirtsor hats, i could get, eat or wear out of the place.I think it seems like a lot like a monitor stove(furnace) its capasity was like 6 gallon tank and has a pinner fuel oil pump and clear canister oil filter(almost looks like a baby tiger loop) it isnt...and it has 1&1/4" taps on both sides of it...the guy had a bunch of Zurn literature i picked up on at the same time....i think i would give one a try and i live in the Frozen North....

    The Quietside

    Morning Tony,
    I have installed 4 of these units. All have been the 150's, and have been on customer request. I do not promote them as one of my main lines.
    Venting, and the configuration of the vent pipe is very important. I also have taken note that the unit does not consume #2 heating oil very well. I strongly reccommend the use of kerosene. The outer wall of the exchanger is
    "thin", and you need to be careful in the installation of fittings and nipples into it. Also ensure that the fuel supply system graity feeds. Inside tanks with short supply lines seems to be the answer to that. Do not let the stack temp go below 290 degrees F or you will condense in and cause a large amount of steam which will of course create unwanted soot.Multi-zone wiring is not as hard as it seems at first. Here is a good one for you... If you have a leaking faucet anywhere in the structure on the hot side I suggest you get it fixed prior to start-up because it can cause a priority condition that will not allow the heat to operate properly. If you need any help with your first one please e-mail me, and I will do my best to be of assistance to you. my e-mail is [email protected]
    All the Best to you sir.
    Semper Fidelis,
    Andrew

    Tony, I don't think that unit has an H stamp on it, So to me it is just a water heater not a boiler.
