Need someone to install a Rinnai Combi Boiler in Los Angeles

Hi guys,
I just replaced a hot water heater and boiler (for radiant heat under floors) with a Rinnai Combi Boiler, only I think the guy who installed it installed it incorrectly. He spent 10 days trying to make it work but we still don't have heat. I'm not a plumber, but I think there's a check valve installed the wrong direction that is preventing water from entering the boiler. He had also installed the pump backwards initially (I watched him detach the pump, turn it over the reverse direction and re-attach it). Is there someone experienced with these boilers who could help me? We've gone 10 days without heat and hot water and I'm at a loss as to what to do. Thanks! Melissa

    BTW, the people at Rinnai gave me a number for a plumber to call with a case number. They will walk a plumber through fixing it. Now I just need a plumber!
  • I wish I could help, but the drive from Berkeley is a bit much.

    Email Larry Weingarten in Monterey. Maybe he knows someone.

    Often wrong, never in doubt.

    Hello @mschilli , I contacted a fiend who knows plumbers around the LA basin. If you can email or PM me, with an idea of your location, I'll let her know and she probably can come up with a good plumber for you.

    Yours, Larry
