Steam Replacement Beechwood NJ

Dave0176Dave0176 Member Posts: 1,149
Not many steam systems in at the Jersey shore so I was surprised when he called, but wasn’t surprised he couldn’t find any local plumbers to do the replacement. It was a Utica PEG150 375 sq ft connected to 540 sq ft of radiation, needless to say it didn’t work. The house was also piped in all 3” steam mains. Not sure why but I guess someone had some money to spend back in the day. I went back and forth between the EG65 and the EG55 ultimately I decided to go in with the EG55 figuring it’s almost 700 sq ft with the pickup factor added.

Doing this job by myself so I’m beat up right now.

    See, to me, you slapped the dead men in the face by removing that 4” header 😉. They’re laughing at you feeling beat up, saying “you’d feel a hell of a lot better if you didn’t removed our header and separate the mains that you already thought were oversized.” 🤣

    On a serious note, it looks pretty as always. I hope the paycheck looks pretty too.

    Look at the nice full port valve on the fuel pipe.  It never even occurred to me before but now that stands out as a huge minor detail to me.
