Old boiler was only 24 yo and rotted to hell. Unfortunately it had zero maintenance, the owner even asked me if I thought boiler solder would get him a few more years, hmmm idk about that one.lol Anyway another cheap replacement.

    The other steamer looks like it's going to be on its way out too.

    Nice work on a "cheap" replacement.

    Just noticed the copper main that you had to connect to.

    We need more people who care about the work they do, you are setting a high bar for them to meet.

    Great job.

    He didn't ask me to check it sooo...... Everything was a disaster, I doubt he'll call me for the service lol.

    Yeah looks the main is mostly copper, it's dry walled over in most areas.

    Thanks Bob, the guy was a cheapo, he even asked me if I can get him another boiler of the same size to keep in his other apartment building because he said one of the boilers there "might be bad too"I guess after watching me he thinks he can do it himself idk!!!.... I just told him no I'm not a retailer.
