Another Steamer

We ripped out this oversized Weil McLain SGO-5 and installed a SGO-4.
We’ll be back to replace all the wet return piping upgrade mains and radiator venting.
Thanks to @clammy for helping us out on this.

    Nice job!! The boiler looks great.

    Now all the owner needs is an electrician. The Romex hanging around the panel is horrific

    Looks good, did they run the old oil line in through an old dryer vent?

    Very nice! You have alot of nice installs... Love how you pre fab steam headers! Why the water meter over auto feeder with reader? And why a filter over feeding from hot domestic side?

    that panelboard appears to be a work in progress

    The water meter and water conditioner are definitely the better way to go about it

    Yes, another great looking job.

    What is the copper coil (about 3" in diameter) on the insert coil lines for water heating?
    I have seen it somewhere else but do not recall the purpose.
    Was it for expansion or water hammer?

    Yes coil was used for expansion.
