condesate tank install

jim127 Member Posts: 3
I am installing a Condensate tank on an old one pipe system 30 gal. tank New crown 376000 btu boiler. Can I set the tank on the floor.Present system lifts the condesate over the hartford loop. It should lift it 18 inches into the tank??   What piping changrs do I need to do to make it work Thanks   Jim

    condensate tank

    why is this tank needed? unless you have a long distance between 2 buildings with some height of return problems, there should be no need for any sort of tank to hold the return condensate. these tanks add a new level of energy use, and maintenance problems, so see if it can be removed rather than replaced!

    generally, the reasons these tanks were installed is to compensate for some piping irregularity. check the existing piping [supply&return] against the mfg's piping diagram to see where the problem is.--nbc
