Well, my attempt at re-piping my boiler is almost finished. Hoping to get a critique of my work before I finish up. I have included before and after photo's.

Many thanks for all the assistance I got on this wonderful site. What a wealth of Knowledge.

    Looking Good !

    Hi Peter- A very nice job. With those high risers and nice dropheader you should get really dry steam. I'm saving the picture  to my photo album on nice dropheaders.

    Still under constructon

    Thanks for all the accolades everyone ! 

    I am still piping the bottom of the returns and hartford loop. The loop will have a ball valve installed as well as couple of drains plus t's with plugs for cleaning. I'll post a picture when I'm a little further along. Too darn hot to think about heating right now.

    You read my mind

    You knew where I was going with the Hartford shot.  Sounds like you did your homework.  Your drop header looks great.  Charlie was right about not trying to save that old header.
