    Ugly 1

    SlantFin boiler, c 1962, had no isolation valves, no air elimination, no LWCO or manual reset high limit; 9 zone valves and a 26-64 pump (pumping towards the exp. tank) with 100 ft of baseboard. We offered a replacement boiler and repipe, but were told "it was too expensive".  Notice the lighters on top of the boiler...the pilot wasn't working and the boiler had to be lit manually for each cycle. Ugly.

    fine example

    of someone with a lot of time on their hands, a lot of fittings and pipe, and no concept of piping. Looks like late 70's, early 80 Malibu

    UGLY 2

    This was down in a crawl space where you had to STAND on the boiler to get down and service it... Ugly indeed.

    Gives me nightmares.

    Some nightmares I have involve claustophobic situations where I can get into a tight spot and cannot get out again. I often wake up screaming from those.

    That system would be one of them, and I would be awake. I can just imagine being down there and it starts on fire, or putting out too much CO and I could not get out. And instead of waking up, ...

    not ugly at all

    In fact that boilers really hot. No I mean that it must be 200 degrees in that boiler room. Nice leak off the supply. Good thing it rusted shut after only 20 years of dripping.
    Cost is what you spend , value is what you get.
