    That's a nice looking job.
    It's not often that you see the drop piping rather than pigtails under the controls/gages.
    I usually will do that on a commercial job and not residential. I think that's an excellent idea.

    Thanks for showing it.

    I assume on an annual Service you pull all the plugs on the gauge tree and clear them out, then refill with treated water.

    @Intplm. i can’t stand pigtails so we just took the idea of how we do it on commercial boilers.
    @motoguy128 exactly.

    Very nice! I like the control tree piping and the low pressure gauge.
    Never stop learning.

    The old one didn’t look very old— was it getting a lot of makeup water do you think?

    I saw you recently did a Peerless install too—is that determined by the homeowner?

    Thanks Rob.
    @ethicalpaul the old one needed water at least a few times a day. No the boiler make and model is determined by us. We install what’s best matching to the system.

    Thanks @EzzyT. I’m sorry I wasn’t clear—I meant before the boiler leak do you think that lots of fresh water input (from vent leaks, etc) contributed to its apparently short life? Or did it live a full life?

    If you don’t mind sharing, what kind of differences between say WM and PB would come into play?

    Combination of a full life and leaks on radiator vents.

    Different ratings between the two.
    When purchasing a packed boiler like the 63 or EG series the Peerless don’t come with any plugs in which is a huge plus when it comes to installation.
    Plus the Peerless’s have a heavier casting.
    The WM skim tapping goes all the way through all sections which the Peerless’s don’t they only go through the 1st section.
