    Neat Install...

    It's nice to see that much black pipe being fitted that well. The isolation valves around the circuits and the boiler stand ought to make the maintenance/repair crews jump for joy. The LWCO is a great safety feature and the pressure + temperature gauge is yet another great troubleshooting help. The PVC install is also neat and tidy - the inspector will appreciate the purple primer...

    Are the supply and return lines looped like that to prevent ghost flow whenever the indirect is being fired but the home isn't calling for heat?

    I suppose the expansion tank and the one circulator under the ceiling could have been a bit easier to reach... Also, it looks like you put a lot of work into getting the circulators isolated... wouldn't it have been easier to use check-trol flanges instead? Just a thought.

    ... but the most important thing is that the install will hopefully delight your customer, is safe, and that it will lead to many, many referrals. Best of luck!

    I would'nt want

    to change that Primary Pump at 10:30 at night.

    Too bad you could'nt have turned it so the pumps where more accesable. Just a thought.

    I am sure the customers bills will drop, or shoud I say not climb this winter.

    Yes constance the loop on the outlet oh the boiler is to pervent thermal migration to the domestic tank all i did was follow htp installation instruction .I tryed to sell some webstone flanges for this job but it wasn't in the price and i didn't set the price but even though it may look hard to change that primary pump it's not to bad the systems supply and returns are isolated so there no need to bleed the 9 rads with covers .I'm not making excuses i was just the guy who install it trying to help a buddy and as he says to gucci it up but when you don't price it right all the gucci stuff is out the window plus this is alot better set up then the slantfin boiler that was slated but with over 20 ft of 3 inch stainless venmt the munchkin vent system lower price and better eff for the type of system we where tying into it waas a common sense no brainer .My buddy always say for me to show him the ways of the clam but holds the wallet a little to tight that's whjy my prices are what they are if you want gucci it don't come free . thanks for the kind words peace clammy

    That's a great service you did your customer...

    ... a condensing boiler is a great match for the emitters in that home and the customers will be thanking their lucky stars in the years ahead as their fuel consumption plummets. I suspected you would have preferred Webstone flanges and all that goodness we usually get to see on your installs....
