Utica SSC Buffer Tank Add...

Just completed my buffer tank add to my system. While it was down I added a S&R zone for possible radiant zone in the kitchen, replaced hand made cush clamps, re-piped water feed to the boiler and cleaned most copper/brass piping & fittings then sprayed with high temp clear coat.

The diamond plate is nice but a pain when soldering - any flux or solder that hit it take the finish away immediately.

Many thanks to John Langan and Rich McGrath for their design & help with this all the way thru. Thanks to Jason from Utica for taking time to visit and resetting my boiler control.
