comes up when someone with an fired oil pin boiler/aquabooster setup needs a mew boiler.The cost of an triple pass/ indirect combo is a stumbling block in many cases.What do you do? Sell them another pin boiler? A flat plate is the best solution, if it allows them to upgrade to a triple pass now and face the tank situation at some point down the road.
Is it the optimal solution?Probably not,but it's cheap,efficient and effective

    And...

    With the price of 2 pumps,controls and a flat plate HX...you could have paid for a REAL indirect...with FAR better heat loss characteristics when finished. JCA

    if you're starting from scratch,you're absolutely correct.But with an already installed booster all you need is the HX and a circ or ZV on the boiler side,you already have the tank and bronze circ.If not for the increased electrical consumption and the heatloss from the flat plate,this might be a better setup than a conventional indirect

    Like Taco says..."Do it once...do it right".

    It depends on circumstances, but in MOST cases, I would say to just go indirect. Dollars to doughnuts, they'll be better off. MHO. Chris
