I was looking around

 the internet for a company to come over and do a combustion analysis.  On one companys website I found a couple photo's of their recent boiler jobs.  For some reason, they didn't look quite right.  Because of not looking right, I didn't even call them.  Is there anything wrong with the way these boilers are piped? Wassup with all those dirt legs?

    Good eye

    the headers on these re-branded Dunkirks are supposed to be 2-1/2", and you can see they are reduced to 2" at the skim tees.

    I may be missing something --

    I often do -- and I'm not familiar with the way Bryant's should be piped -- but I have to admit that those don't look bad to me.

    The dirt legs and assorted other places where one might expect an elbow, but instead have a T, are mighty handy when you want to flush out a bit of pipe...
