Pipe Insulation

rhw1rhw1 Member Posts: 30
Got all the stuff to insulate but need some direction on insulating the new near boiler piping with all it's twists and turns. Not real good with puzzles so I am wondering if there is a video somewhere in the archives or on line that I can follow. Thanks.

    These guys do a pretty good one.
    Basically, you do all the straight sections, holding back from the corners the appropriate amount then go back and fit corners a Tees

    This video is the best one, take your time, buy 1" thick insulation and the corresponding corners and T's, I find the tack to be really helpful and make the corner easy, just be patient. I also really like the knife they sell to cut the insulation, make the cutting easier.
