LWCO V9 nipple heights

JPomp Member Posts: 1
Hello all!

Was curious if any one had information pointing to the nipple lengths for a 150 control on a Burnham V9. I searched Burnhams directions and only found the required heights for proper operation. Not the length of the nipples to get me those heights.

Thanks for any help,

    The Hartford loop hight on the equalizer , the lower part of the tee where the return pipes though a short nipple needs to be set at he minimum water line on the boiler ... From there you need to use a tape measure ....
    I have enough experience to know , that I dont know it all

    You could probably call Burnham and ask. But most people if they know the correct height figure it out with a tape measure. 1" nipples make in about 5/8"
