Hi all. I have a Laars endurance EBP175 for over 18 years. For the last 17 years I have being working on it my self. My Question is. Can I change out the anti condensing for a taco zone valve.?
Tired of that garbage.

    If whats in there is a honeywell, than technically I suppose you could, its just an open and close valve thats 24volt powered, its is a tight fit. The question is how long will you keep limping that boiler along? 20 years seems like the END of that style boiler, So you may want to start planning for the swap.

    I would research the characteristics of the old valve voltage, Cv factor, two way, 3 way and piping and look for the closest match.
