I’ve done a lot of repairs on this mess over the last dozen+ years. It finally bit the dust with a leaking tail piece on the aluminum block.


Here’s what replaced it:

    Not every detail was finished when I took the pics.

    Looks good. Must have taken a little planning to crimp those joints

    Is that huge galvanized pipe to the old boiler gas?

    Yes. There were two boilers before the Dunkirk.

    The house is kinda like a duplex that had two gas and two electric services. The original portion dates back to the 1790’s.

    I got a new toy from Viega that I used.

    One of these summers I still need/want to relocate and redo the plumbing around my boiler... I'm seriously thinking I might just rent a propress and bite the bullet with the costly fittings. Life is too short.
