    At some point I knew it would end up in bobs hands ,I had the pleasure of attending a seminar w bob years ago and I will say first hand that aside from being a encyclopedia of hydronic and all attached to it . He also has the same way to explaining things to field mechanics that we can understand easily not in engineers language sort of the way dan has dummied some engineering stuff as it applies to steam . I kinda knew that he would end up w it one year and he is a extremely nice guy who passes his knowledge and expertise on to others . congratulation on the honor of receiving the award . Peace and good luck clammy

    Definitely well deserved in my opinion. Almost any time I have had a question on here about hydronic heating systems Hot Rod would be able to provide an answer. He definitely was a huge help to me when I decided to re-pipe my boiler to a primary secondary injection pumping setup.

    "It's easy if you try." I like that!
