@ May 1, 2004 6:57 AM in Weil Mclain Ultra boiler noisewe had same problem on an Ultra 105, but at start you need to run flue gas test to see if boiler is running in the limits set by W/M. This one was not, called rep and met same have new gas valve on boiler.What I have found is from talking with most of my brothers in the trade that have installed an Ultra or equal that they are not running the flue gas test, out of 12 Ultra's installed 2 were tested the way I read it no test no warranty. This is required at start up and can point the way to problems with the boiler early.

@ April 1, 2004 8:17 PM in Return piping water heatersDid you put service valves on either side of the circulator if so shut it off unplug cir and see if it returns to normal and post back
@ April 1, 2004 8:12 PM in New home best heating &coolingFirst do a heat gain and loss. Next look at doing radiant on second floor for know and do first floor when budget will allow.Look at High Velocity system , right now ductwork is going threw the roof pricing wise these systems use smaller ductwork and can be equipied with hot water coils and get a/c seers @ 12 to 13. Looking to save more money buy direct vent oil fired boiler ,no chimney .With your budget this could be done.We are in Pennington 609-737-7443
@ March 23, 2004 9:50 PM in W/M Ultra testingI have 3 ultra's up and running 1-155 and 2-105.Standard startup requires you test co2 and o2 my numbers are no not in tolerences as per w/m startup manual on 1 of the 105's.I was back to the 155 to run co2 and o2 tests and found a leak on upper left corner of block. Has anyone been testing at startup of these boilers and what was your readings. I will post mine as soon as I get home thanks
@ March 23, 2004 8:50 PM in close call todayTaht stuff goes up like wild fire thank God you were under control and took care of business.Good mechanics work well under pressure
@ March 20, 2004 6:46 AM in compression fittingsUse flare for fuel and refrigerant it handles higher psi and is very stable joint.Compression use in low to moderate pressure up to 125 psi but in low movement area for water connection

@ March 11, 2004 6:31 AM in Douglass flush valve for wooden tank ?Try calling frank Perlstein and Son in Trenton,NJ 609-393-4877 and Talk to Sue she is the best
@ March 8, 2004 9:07 PM in NEED HELP!Field control makes a combo power vent for Hot water heater and boiler that uses 4" zflex and will handle both up your existing chimney.2nd it would be safer because draft must be present for the equipment to run,this is just another option.SOUNDS LIKE YOU NEED TO VERIFY RADIATION 1ST !!!!!
@ March 5, 2004 6:52 AM in zone valves vs. circulatorsBoth Cirs and ZV will do the job you are looking for, its a matter of style.What I have seen that I like is the new Tace line from feeder to multi zone or cir contols. When done with the boiler job it looks good and it is functional.Check out the esp valve or the I series and zone control boards this is all I use.I try to keep it simple and you should to.If it breaks you need to be able to replace it by the next working day no special orders
