Another Happy Customer/GB Install/Darin Cook

The first major problem to be encountered after removing the homeowners electric water heater and piping in the ST-150 was the boiler did not want to ignite and run. This was an LPG install and it wound up in the end to be BAD PROPANE. I have never had that happen before in my whole career. It was a reconditioned tank and must not have been purged properly. Hours and hours wasted testing everything only to find out nothing wrong with equipment. Waiting about two and a half weeks for my panel rads did not help either then only to get a 71" rad that was bent like a "U". I must say, the trials and tribulations we go through sometimes and the time we end up "eating" is amazing.

I am very happy with the end product. This is a constant circulation system with panel radiators and thermostatic heads. All the panels have diverter valves underneath. I really like the Wilo pumps. I can't wait for the ECO to come on the market.

The folks who hired me were aces. It was a real pleasure to work for them. They got such a kick out of the Buderus "goodies" I gave them. I wish them many years of happy heating!!

    It is getting to the point

    that I can almost pick out a Darin Cook Installation from a photo line-up. Number Three- step forward and turn to the right....

    But, man, Darin- the extra time has to hurt a but. Any pics of that bent radiator?

    And of course you get nice customers. You deserve them! Good for all of you.

    As always, thanks for sharing and thanks for inspiring.

    What can I say?


    SAAAAAAWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!

    I really like what you did with the conduit! (Murph will be wanting a cut on this now)

    As far as the LPG issue......believe it or not....you are not the only pro having this issue. I know you're used to hearing that, but not this time. It is becoming a common occurrence.

    Concerning the ECO.........soon........

    Great job as usual Darin.

    GB's

    Beautiful job, Darin! The conduits are a great idea for multiple pex outlets...so tough to get them looking straight. I felt like Ron Jr. on my last GB. Minimum space in a closet off the kitchen. Squeezed it into about 20X48 in a new closet off a remodeled kitchen. Three black iron S&R's piped into the closet to convectors throughout and a new low temp warmboard for the kitchen.

    Yup

    The propane monster got me last Winter. A new propane tank had water in it. I lost some time defending and resetting my Prestige 175, but finally the propane company figured it out and got it straight. Beautiful job as always. WW

    Very nice Darin.

    You may want to look into the strut clamps By Sioux Chief.
    I've been happy with them, and much cheaper than cush clamps.
    One does 3/4" - 2" . And N&S has them in stock !

    Singh!

    I've been using the Clamps by Sioux Chief some. The Touchdown 2's with the foot for Strut. I only use them when I don't need a lot of strength and just need to hold things in place. They dont hold as tight as the cush clamps and make me nervous. I like the price but use them cautiously. My favorite place to use them is to hold a PT line in place on it's way to the floor. WW

    Tight Squeezes

    Thanks Ron, the back and right side walls were up but not the front. Plywood and 5/8" drywall for firecode before we started. The carpenters should've framed the door bigger. If the tank needs to come out some piping will have to go.
