This discusssion started in an old thread of mine re installing a LWC with probe. In sharing pics, you all kindly alerted me that my EG-55 was incorrectly piped - as in 2 risers into the main when it should be 1 riser, Also a hartord loop was piped all wrong. Rather than post all of the before-pictures again, see pages 3, and page 4 from links below for before pics.https://forum.heatinghelp.com/discussion/166105/replacing-low-water-cut-off-float-type/p3 https://forum.heatinghelp.com/discussion/166105/replacing-low-water-cut-off-float-type/p4
Here's my update, after much planning, tugging and twisting, I have the hartford loop installed, Thoughts and suggestions appreciated. All that is left is to run the condensate line.
About the condensate line,it will require 7' of pipe from an existing nipple on an existing section of the condensate line, then do a 90 degree turn to the hartfors loop followed by 3' of pipe tieing into the bottom of a tee on the equalizer. I'm concerned about support for the 7' run. Should a portion of the 7' run be on the floor? For support, near the end thru the 7' run, I considered doing a 45 degree slope (45 degree elbow) to the floor just pripr to the 90 degree turn. . Also for eaiser access, I thought of adding a union aprox. halfway between the 7' run. Any suggestions you can share for piping a condensate line into a steam boiler is much appreciated!
Below are update pics showing the new Hartford Loop. I made sure of the mininum 2" clearance from the top of the waterline. Note at the piping with a tee below the loop is a mockup ready for taping.
