    This system was in Medford , NY

    We were there for a warantee replace indirect a few weeks before and when the service dept. went to tuneup the boiler , they found the chamber was shot . The Thermo Dynamics had 5 zones on it , including the indirect . We've been lucky with open basements the past few weeks . But getting there was tough - the stairs turn 90 degrees right in the middle .

    The job was installed

    by Phil , Sal and myself . It was full , non-stop day . The oil lines are temporary - we're going back to pipe in an oil tank in the basement .

    as usual! Have the higher-ups ever heard of zone valves,isolation flanges or at least speed headers? Would make these jobs go faster.

    Once again, your artistic........

    ........side shows through, RJ. Why so many pumps? Your company doesn't use ZVs?

    I'm working on

    trying to get them to stock isolation flanges , at least for on top of the circs . We used the speed headers before but I don't like having the circs so far apart ( we got them spaced 6 inches between tees ) . I build the manifold using 3 1/2 or 4 inch nips between the circs . Thanks Robert .

    Thanks Gerry

    That week we installed an MPO with an indirect and 2 Peerless with indirects . People are finally getting away from the idea of using a coil for hot water .

    No zone valves

    And very rarely will you see zone valves on oil boilers around here . I know one major oil company uses ZVs , but they are the exception .

    We don't use ZVs because these installs are usually 1 or 2 zones . 2 zones is by far the norm over here .

    Thanks HeatBoy .

    Tryin' to keep cool .........

    I hate working in the heat . Give me 0 degree weather to install in anytime .

    There were zones added to that boiler haphazardly - I think the whole supply header was 3/4 inch . We installed a system today - the drain was behind the boiler against the wall , and someone decided to pipe an extra zone back there ..... blocking the drain altogether . We had to drain it partially from the purge valve of the new zone , cut the pipes , spin it , then drain it from the bottom . I hate cleaning up after knuckleheads . Here's some pics of this nightmare .

    Thanks alot Clammy , I really appreciate your kind words .

    Great job! It is always interesting to see the before and after pictures of the jobs you do. The installs show what "pride" in workmanship is all about. Thanks!

    Beautiful job. Thanks for sharing.
    Isolation flanges would be good of course. If we can help with that, give a call. Johnny
