    New munchkin

    Work in progress. 11 cast iron radiators. Removed the 2" mains and installed 1/2" pex to each off a RTI thermallock manifold. Max system temp 170.

    The outside temp was 23 and the inside temp was 68.

    I still don't have a t-stat hooked up it is just running w/outdoor reset. It has run for two days and maintained 68 inside temp.

    The supply temp was 150 return 130. I will lower it because the contractor said it was to hot.

    What allthread mounting brackets are those? They look good. Good job by the way.

    It fell of the botom before you got to see it. I will try to get a few new photo's today and post.

    I have the Super Store hooked up and running and the domestic water manifolds installed. I have been away form the job for a few days. Had a couple of emergency calls.

    I didn't see the primary piping really good.
    1. Are those radiators old?
    2. Do you have a Y strainer attached to the Return?
    3. If not you might consider putting one it so you don't clog up the Heat Exchanger.

    Good Luck
