Inspector requirements for radiant system
I bought a Hydro-smart 120 micro boiler in Minneapolis, then had it installed here in Canada. It has worked fine since it was put into service 8 months ago. The inspector came a week ago and will not approve the boiler. The CSA label only has the US under it and the inspector will not allow it because the CSA sticker has to a have a C under it as well and the US. He said the company is not allowed to just mail me a sticker that complies (CSA told me that the HS120 does have a Canadian certification) but that the company themselves have to put the sticker on. They are 1000 miles away from me.
The inspector also said that the Hydro-Smart 120 boiler is not a boiler - it is a water heater - even though the website and the installation manual exclusively call it a micro-boiler and only give instructions for it as a radiant heater. The inspector says that because it is not a boiler but a water heater it cannot be hooked up in a stand alone application but must be connected to my domestic water supply. It is located at the back of my attached garage over 100 ft from my water system.
Is anyone else familiar with problems like this?
