    And I bet they will tell you it runs and heats fine! Perfectly as a matter of fact! >:)

    That looks interesting.... Probably it was even more complicated to install rather than piping it correctly.

    The fact that it runs at all is a testimony to how forgiving steam really is!

    I suspect it was a used boiler, which may have been piped correctly in a previous life.
    The Angie's list trunk slammer then offered the home owners a deal on a "lightly used" boiler. Saved them so much money compared to the competition!--NBC
