Paul Pollets, this one may compete with yours. I don't think this is a good frame for Taco's zone relay.

    It looks like the picture was taken with a "fish eye" lenses? ;)

    And someone pays for something like this?? If the homeowner was aware enough to want radiant heating in the worst way...that was what he got.

    I would really hope this is a homeowner job, one of my techs found it today and had to send it to me! I don't like to believe anyone in their right mind could ever charge for something like this.

    MY wife says "it looks like the kracken!"
    I bet it gets real good when the heat is on it.
    At least there is an air eliminator.......

    It at least looks like an electrician did SOME of the wiring.

    It kinda looks like an electrician might have done ALL of the job. :)

    I'm not sure if this belongs here but look at this conversion from cast iron radiators to baseboard someone did on a hot water system.

    I found these on a house that was for sale. The price had just been lowered a good bit recently, hmm I wonder why?
    I just earned my GED and am looking for a apprenticeship with one of these steam gurus on this site!
