Saved a steam system

Paul SPaul S Member Posts: 1,216
Customer got numerous quotes for an oil to gas conversion and wanted to remove steam mains in the middle of basement. Every other quote was to remove steam system and install a warm air system with central air. We repiped steam system....i will be installing boiler tomorrow......i also installed a 3ton Carrier ductless with 4 indoor units for air conditioning. The copper pipe i wish be replacing once the general contractor pulls up the floor....the propress is just temporary.theres another main not pictured ill post pic once boiler is installed....

    Nice job. #steamersmatter! Lol
  • JUGHNEJUGHNE Member Posts: 3,067
    Very nice looking job!

    It seems that the low voltage people can always leave their mark of untidiness. They either don't have a wire cutter or anything resembling a stapler......it's just git er done! Always....everywhere. I have pre-wired many phone/data systems for them to connect their feeds to and it makes my work look like it exploded... :o .

    I am sure it will be fine as long as the pressure is low.

    The low voltage is a mess and yes, cable, phone and data is all part of the National Electric code. The code says "neat and workman like manner" unfortunately the cable & phone guys don't care in most cases.

    My personal favorite is when they lay it all on the ceiling grid. You can't even get the tiles out.

    A good piping job really shows off the lousy low voltage
  • JUGHNEJUGHNE Member Posts: 3,067
    Low voltage is seldom ever subject to any inspection.
    There are directives in the NEC for installation.
    Also the NEC states that abandoned cabling must be removed if not in use. Spares must be tagged on each end.

    However, if in the way that stuff will really stretch to be relocated, this may have happen on occasion requiring a visit from cable dudes, crawling into some dark hole etc. :)

    @Paul S. SAVE AND A BEAUTY! Great work. Really curious to see if the pressed stuff can hold up. The viega fittings are rated for steam. I have used on repairs a few times where homeowner didn't want complete repipe
  • Danny ScullyDanny Scully Member Posts: 566
    Copycat @Paul S! :lol: looks awesome. The "A" dimension on my counterflow job is even tighter. Have no fear, the Vaporstat will do its job.

    What brand boiler is that - nice large supply risers for such a small boiler.
  • AMservicesAMservices Member Posts: 186
    Great job! I really like the extra effort you put in keeping the basement window usable.
