@ August 26, 2014 7:48 PM in General pipe freezeWe are struggling with out freeze kit, we have not been using it a lot becasue we can't seem to trust it. Sometimes we are good to go (frozen solid), other times it just sits there and shows tiny frost on the clamps, but no where near enough to freeze the water. No, there is no flow, and no, there is no heat (I tried to freeze a cold water main (3/4"c) the other day, ball valves off).
We question dip tube issues on the tanks, but out Co2 vendor shut us down when we asked him about this.
Thanks for any tid bits of advice.
@ July 22, 2014 4:38 PM in warm air 86% and ECMI just spent way too much wasted time with 3 vendors, coming up with nothing, anyone in the mass area using any particular oil furnace for the added Mass save rebate?

@ April 1, 2014 9:58 AM in Automag zone valve with intermittent run-away heat-
@ April 1, 2014 8:25 AM in Automag zone valve with intermittent run-away heatI don't really work with the Automag at all, yet we have a new customer that is explaining that two or three times this past winter it went on run away craze and overheated. He is saying two years ago the head was replaced but not the body (seems normal enough), so maybe there's some sticking going on? Thanks for any advice. Gary
@ January 4, 2014 9:19 AM in what boiler does Constant Circ w/ outdoor reset besides Viessmann?I trust the comment wasn't intended to be taken personally. You seem well informed
I tend to agree with you, without indoor feed some fuel will be wasted or some comfort will be sacrificed
@ January 4, 2014 9:13 AM in what boiler does Constant Circ w/ outdoor reset besides Viessmann?We did that maybe 7 or 8 years ago with some systems, with a simple "heat on" and "heat off" switch. It just doesn't compare to a real indoor feed. Too much, not enough, wasted fuel, maybe you have the special touch with settings, I'll stick with indoor feedback with my euro style rad jobs
I'll use a tekmar if the ho wants a good system but doesn't want a smart boiler
@ December 21, 2013 5:47 PM in what boiler does Constant Circ w/ outdoor reset besides Viessmann?I'm at a loss how to write up my quotes to Ho's with this new 'reduced AFUE issue,
I've been selling V forever, and always utilize the constant circ mentality. So, as i try to sit here and write quotes for the coming year (with their new 'reduced' AFUE ratings), can i really write Viessmann is the only manufacturer with this feature? I am well aware that the bud2107 can do it too (it always killed me that the GB142 couldn't do this out of the box, actually had a sales guy once that got me in trouble of that subject years ago), yet i am specifically asking about mod/con at this time.
I am well aware that tekmar can make many of these boilers do constant too.
So, what other boilers can do bona fide outdoor rest and contant circ, with indoor feedback? What other boiler manufacturer can drive a modulating mixing valve off of their mod/con boiler's logic? I need to know what I'm talking about, finally. If there are other boilers that do what Viessmann does, i can't type in my quotes what I am intending on typing.
Thanks for any help, Gary
@ December 16, 2013 7:23 AM in Liberty 331 Transfer Pump brush kit?My vendor says it's not in their system, only the impeller kit.
Will search the other recommendations.
@ December 14, 2013 6:55 AM in Boiler Firing every 3 minutes or so.. Normal?Are you sure you have enough gas?
we has this exact problem once, gas line too small
@ December 14, 2013 6:49 AM in Liberty 331 Transfer Pump brush kit?Anyone know where to get a brush kit for the liberty?
@ December 2, 2013 7:32 AM in Any Viessmann pros have a spreadsheet on Vito partsThe LGM29 on the A series 200 fits every boiler in the line up, but the radial fan is different for every size.
The gas valve is the same for the entire line up.

@ December 2, 2013 7:00 AM in Any Viessmann pros have a spreadsheet on Vito partsHello, I have a bunch of Vitodens out there. A series and B, 100 and 200.
It's apparent that many of the parts are interchangeable between several sizes of the same model.
My local vendor has plainly opted not to stock many parts; that's a different conversation (yes, they are happy to sell boilers, but not stock parts). The rep says there is no sheet available.
In an effort not to take over the wholesalers line of work and stock redundant parts, does anyone have a sheet of any sort that identifies whaich parts can be crossed to several boilers?
@ November 11, 2013 8:10 AM in Combining 2 zones into 1?your math is working out, just wire them both in.
@ November 10, 2013 4:05 PM in Combining 2 zones into 1?I'm sorry, I don't know the control on your boiler. I also can't determine what your control experience is either. Do you have a mixing valve that is operated off of the boilers logic? If yes, or new question, you simply want to run two circs off of one thermostat ? I may be missing something. If we spoke on the phone I could understand much faster.
You can run 10 zones off of that one circ output, you just need a relay control.
I am familiar with Viessmann. One their boilers you need a rather expensive independent control if you want multiple constant circulation / modulating mixing zones
If you just want a signal to the boiler for low temp, that is easily done with a RIB relay
@ November 10, 2013 9:09 AM in Combining 2 zones into 1?Yes, can't you simply disconnect the stat from the bedroom TT, and jump liv circ power to the bed circ?
I don't quote understand your communication glitch to the boiler, yet if need be simply install a rib relay and when your circ powers up you can send a n/o signal to your boiler
@ November 10, 2013 9:00 AM in Mono flow kicking my butt....Are you sure you don't have a stray loop coming off the main/zone somewhere? If you disturb the pressure balance you will lose flow ( if you have two or more loops off the same zone)
Seems like you have a pressure drop issue, that's if you're positive it's not an air issue
