Well last winter I had a V7 with a cracked heat exchanger. I posted the issue here and received quite a bit of feedback. I gathered the problem stemmed from thermal shock. The V7 had a real thin section in it's casting and it cracked a lot.
Well now I've been presented with a project to move a perfectly fine V7 to a garage so as to make room for a laundry room. I have an idea and was wondering if it's worth the trouble. Here it is.
Would piping it P/S eliminate or at least mitigate the cracking problem? I think the HO is going to question the whole thing. A buffer tank or hydraulic separator would be a tough sell. Just looking for some affirmation.THX.
