Does anyone else besides peerless make a lowboy indirect. Also if tapping off steam boiler should I just tap it directly on boiler.

    Not sure about the lowboy, but if this will run off a condensate loop off a steam boiler what matters is the height of the ports and the coil, not the height of the tank per se.

    You can use just about any indirect...You don't have to be below the water line of the boiler. No air vents in the line. I would use a coil that is non ferrous. A Super stor ultra is a good choice.

    i wanted to put the indirect water heater order the laundry table since its waisted space. Comes to my other question except for the cost of the copper is there a big disadvantage of putting the indirect 15-20 feet away from the boiler. The washing machine, slop sink, 1st floor bathroom and kitchen plumbing Is real close, or is it better to have indirect water heater close to boiler and add a smart tavo domestic pump?

    That was the reason for the small indirect, so I can put it in a space right now that's not being used, right now it has a tankless coil. It also has a 25 x 25 room with baseboard with a bg 100 bronze pump.

    Buderus LT series? The coils are low. And big, which is nice for condensate heating.

    My friend in St Paul just had an LT (I think) type tank added to his new Buderus boiler. Paid a mint to have the plumbing all redone to accommodate the 'undermounted' feature (and kicking himself for not doing it initially). But I have to say, it sure looks pretty.

    Buderus has a steel coil. The steam is an open system. It will shorten the life if the coil. Just had to replace a Buderus S120 in a closed system.... Leaking coil. kept popping the PRV on the boiler.
