    Smartest guy in the class (company):

    I had to use the Puncuator for clarification. I guess this is what you are saying:

    I just wrote a thing about this and the only thing that appeared was the header.

    Too bad. Bad Karma or something.

    You posted this in the Domestic Hot Water section. Try re-posting in the steam section.

    Post some pictures of the install as well. Your description is difficult to understand.

    And if your boss doesn't believe in skimming a steam boiler, he has no business installing them.
