In fairness to all, we don't discuss pricing on the Wall. Thanks for your cooperation.
Columbia Joins the Wet-Base Power-Gas Steamer Ranks
This was probably as bad as Hurricane Sandy got in the Baltimore area- certainly nothing like coastal New York or New Jersey, where entire neighborhoods were wiped out.
This basement flooded because the downspouts had been disconnected from the drainpipes that ran to the street, so all the water was dumped around the foundation. The ground got saturated from all the rain, the power went out so the sump pump quit, and the basement flooded, knocking out the boiler and water heater.
We had optimized this system about a month ago with Gorton #2 main vents and Vent-Rite #1 adjustables in the bedrooms. So the owners called us to replace the boiler and water heater.
The boiler was a Columbia CEG-187, with the usual undersized copper abomination that was leaking under the insulation.
