  • Looks like he piped it that way

    To keep the water level higher in combination with the feeder . Im not positive , but I think I heard you shouldnt do that with a 67 LWCO . Better off using the probe LWCO in the higher of the 3/4 holes in the front of the ECT . I like the Unimatch feeder - comes with a big delay and orifices to slow down the fill speed .
  • Nice work Joe

    I get the feeling they wont run out of hot water with the coil and aquabooster . And you took the extra time to connect the returns and equalizer in black . We've been installing a ball valve and drain on the returns to flush em out - especially on those crappy wet returns thatll bring back the spooge with the ECT running full tilt . Did you find a good spot to skim the boiler ? And is that humongous backflow preventer required on all steam boilers ? Im kinda ashamed to show what we are required to install - looks like a gnat compared to that one .

    I have done this alot when we install dual lwco.We really do not have any problem with over filling the boiler. The plumbling inspector has told me this is ok when I install dual lwco.Also had smith give me the ok with this.I do not do this when just install a 67.Sorry the pictures are not better it was a very tight boiler room to take pictures or work.

    Any boiler over 300,000 btu in nyc requires the large backflow preventer.
