    Firematic valve placement

    I know codes vary and some places might not require one at all .  But where is the correct place to install one on an oil fired unit ?

    We've been going back to a few installs to add one right at the inlet of the oil burner pump . But I'd much rather have it installed where it'll be turned occasionally . Right before the oil filter . Because the spring in the valve almost always gets stuck open if it's not exercised ......

    Hello Ron. Here in Mass it's one at the tank, and one at the burner. It is good to use them to keep them from getting stiff

    Thanks Bill !

    Not a requirement at the tank here . Been going back to jobs we did after Sandy to bring them up to code . Firematic before the filter on every one . About 6 now that had to be moved to the pump .........

    welcome Ron

    I would imagine you are very busy. Make sure you take some down time before summer is gone
