Had my meeting today at my school with the pair of Smith 28-13 boilers. These are the boilers with insufficient balanced flow thru the boilers.

We checked the running time on each boiler. One boiler had 3 x the run time of the other.

The option of turning the boiler plant into primary/secondary was discussed. One of many the benefits is that I can reduce the S&R pipe sizing from each boiler to the building loop down to 3". We will remove the boilers from the current full flow thru each boiler at all times. Protect the boiler from low stack temperatures, we noticed condensation stains beneith the front burner plate and the rear observation door that will be eliminated with " The thermal shock protector" offered by HB Smith.

Seems like the full blown repipe makes the most sense to everyone concerned.

Thanks to the local Smith rep Jamie Boss for picking up the phone at 7:15 tonight to discuss pipe sizing and gpm requirements to protect the boilers. Who gives you that kind of service?

    good service

    Who else??? I get that kind of service from all the reps I work with. Treat them professionally and that's the way you get treated. That is what they are there for. If they can't or won't provide it, we get it somewhere else. Smith is great but they don't stand alone.

    Reps

    Al,
    Not to be a wise guy but... how many reps do you work with?

    I work with many and I agree that without good service I go elsewhere, however I never expect a guy to pick up the phone at 7:15 P:M. On second thought I pick up the phone at 7:15 P:M and any other time for that matter for my clients.

    Maybe I have been programed not to expect that type of responce?

    Business good up in the great white north?

    reps

    I work with quite a few. They are there for me when I need them. But I only call when I really need them and may be stuck with a problem. One even answered the phone last week, and he was on vacation........that's service. I think that if you're a pro and really try to do things right, you're the kind of guy they want to work with.
    Things are good here. Lots of work and I'm trying to put away the wrenches for good this year.....worn out and burned out. Doing consulting and insurance investigation work that is a lot easier on this tired old body.
    GEEZ....it just hit me.....how are you these days? Noted change in e-mail address....what are you doing now?
