    I Like it. How ever if you want it to go you will have to turn

    A nice neat job

    You have a good eye for keeping everything plumb and nice looking. With practice you can only get better. The only suggestions I would make is to maybe use some Webstone circulator flanges Or B&G, so you can change the circulator down the road without draining the system, and get up to speed on circulator location. You may not have any trouble putting it on the return, but why tempt fate. A re-pipe is always expensive if you do have problems and putting the circ pumping away from the expansion tank leaves no possibility of air problems. As Danny H always says, "buy a book" (Pumping away.) check in the book store section of this site. WW

    Right on WW!!

    He is pumping toward the point of no pressure change in stead of pumping away.

    The automatic feed may be increasing the pressure in the system when the pump starts. It should be teed in above extrol.

    l.w. cutoff

    got a feeling your low water cut off could possibly not be in the most ideal spot.some unauthorized personnel shuts the ball valve and a low water condition arises .........
