    I'll answer, why don't you switch pumps out on a real cold day and see if this pump can keep up.

    Taco 110 would be a direct replacement for a series 100. A Taco 0010 would probably do the job more economically.

    @ Snowmelt, Umm, every day in a NYC winter is cold, especially this past week where it's been hitting 0f and under, and I really didn't have time to play around with swapping pumps, I just needed to get a working one in and get some heat going.... @ Paul48 for the advice, I wasn't sure about using a Taco, I assumed that since the specs between a Taco 0010 and B&G series 100 are a bit different that it might not have been able to handle the load. Due to local supply and prices I ended up going with an Armstrong S-25. Not one of the 10 supply houses in my area had a single B&G in stock, Most places had nothing but the S25. The S25 swapped right in with very little hassle. Refilling and bleeding the second floor rads was the real hassle. Armstrong's seem to have a good rep and are a bit cheaper than B&G, Plus the Armstrong only needs 1/4oz of oil once per year as opposed to the B&G which required more frequent oilings and got oiled in 3 locations. The only big difference between the series 100 and the S25 was the way (cable entry location) the electric hooked up.

    The S25 is so similar to a Series 100 that the parts interchange. Similar story around here - roughly 2/3rds the price of the B & G.

    Just to be clear.......Taco 110 or Taco 0010. Doesn't matter anyway.

    Sometimes you have to go with what supply house has. But the time you spent writing a post you could of swapped the two pumps out.
