    I installed one last Fall. Runs like a dream. Very well made. Makes me proud that it's made in Merica. Built in bypass valve makes it very easy to pipe. Friendly keypad. Needs a display that's easier to read. The one I installed you had to take off the cover to see what was going on.

    Excellent Boiler

    I'm a little partial, though. I was one of the contractors that ECR brought in for input regarding the design.



    Like Wayne said: pri/sec and circ already built in. Heat exchanger is very well designed with low head. It's a helix coil s.s. steel, down fired.



    Very easy to install.



    I like the WH Knight just a little better for some applications because of its control system and low head, fire tube heat exchanger. But its install time takes longer than the Utica because you have to do your own pri/sec and it's somewhat difficult to get the gas valve off to convert to propane.



    The Utica may be a little more in cost, but it's more than made up for in time and materials saved installing.



    I would highly recommend it.



    The'res also the ECR branded gb97 wich is the same boiler with a couple more features:

    It can be piped top, bottom or a combination of both. It can also be floor mounted or wall hung. The Utica/Dunkirk is only bottom piped, wall hung.
