I eluded to this job last week (which took until 1am to get steaming), and here’s the finished project. Job details: Burnham Independence with 3” drop header, power venting added, separation of steam mains connected above the water line, VXT, condensate zone for turbo max instantaneous indirect water heater.

    Nice job Dan.
    Question on the Turbo Max. Is there a domestic relief valve and thermostatic mixing valve somewhere? Can't see the tank too well in the pic.
    I used to install an 1 1/4 x 3/4 x 3/4 tee and a 3/4 street x female on top of the run for the domestic relief.

    Yes @HVACNUT, it was hard to get a decent pic over there in the corner. I used a Caleffi mixing valve. I reduced from 1-1/4 to 3/4, then came off the bull of a 3/4 tee for the mixing valve and the run on top for the relief valve.
