    Nice work!

    I like seeing a pan under the indirect tank. And nobody is going to steal that condensate neutralizer :)

    You must have mouse hands

    To do all that fine work in close-confines!

    Excellent, intricate and a sight to behold. A lot in a small space and well crafted!

    Ron Jr. would be proud. :)

    Beautiful work!

    I'm not in the business but I recognize craftsmanship when I see it. I could never do work like that in my lifetime. Another wish I had was is to understand why it was done the way it was and some of the machinery involved; such as the long black box that has two pipes in on the left & two on the right with some kind of control? at the bottom. Be proud and it IS rocket science!
  • Excellent work

    How long did the whole project take ? I hope to see more of your work up here Leo . I only steal my ideas from the best :)

    Nice Installation Leo

    Thanks for sharing the pics with us. Quality work. I love those Penn A419 temp controllers. Most versatile out there for the price.

    Must give credit

    where credit is due. My apprentice "installed" the nuetralizer. I think he used 3" screws on it also!

    Actually, he did most of the pipe work, and was excited to be able to use the PP first. He is really starting to get into this stuff after 2 years, very nice to see.

    As for the pan, it is code here on the wet coast. Sometimes I talk the builders/owners into dropping the whole mechanical floor an 1 1/2". That is a real pan!

    Thanx Hot Rod,much appreciated.

    Coming from you Ron,

    that is a real compliment!

    It took Evan about 6 days to make up the board. Then I spent about 5 days, most of them just 1/2 days, doing the wiring.

    A little more laid back here in the new construction as opposed to your specialty eh, Ron?

    Well Brad,

    to be honest with you all, the room is about 15 x 10. But as you can see, the space I was promised shrunk as soon as the tinnie got in there! :)

    The home owner, owns a moderate size electrical company. Excellent to work for as he is also a tradesman.

    Thanx for the comment.

    Well Tekkie

    This is Viessmann's "dumbed down" mod/con. They leave all the controls for us to supply. I like that idea. I used the Taco RMB to control the floor heat, as it can vary the temp going to the floors. The RMB just tells the boiler to turn on. This Viessmann has a low fire control, which is set for about 111F and a high fire control which kicks the temp up to about 175F. I use that switch for the domestic.

    The black box is a low loss header. It is to seperate the boiler loop from the heating/DHW loop. As these mod/cons need a lot of flow through and want to see the lowest return temps poosible, this accomplishes both.

    As for rocket science, I hope that I never launch any of my customers into space! :)

    Thanx, the apprentice is very proud of this one, as the owner keeps pulling people into the room to look at it!

    Really appreciate

    your comments TomBig.

    Yeah, the A419's are a very good deal. When we do heating for pools and hot tubs plus the floors and DHW, we can get quite a nice green glow from the 4 or more of these! :)
