@ April 15, 2009 7:56 PM in opinions wanted about manufacturer's mod/con warranty policy

It's their game, and they call the rules of play. They probably clearly state that the warranty will be void if you don't do as they do. Doesn't mean that you are not capable of getting the same end result by other means, but they have the final say incase of malfuntion to cover or not. peace


@ April 14, 2009 7:16 PM in loud banging noises in boiler pipes

Is this forced hot water? Sounds like low bolier water pressure, or temp too high, or even a zone valve in backwards. Besides the creaking/knocking/banging that you get when the pipes are jammed against wood, etc, these things will make it bang also


@ April 11, 2009 6:49 PM in grundfos ifc's pump problems

The piping looks ok from what I could see,a better angle would help, but is this a new customer that you picked up to straighten out their problems? I see the wrong pitch on the smoke pipe from what looks to be a Bock water heater, no screws in any joints, and the wiring is so illegal. I'm sure you are trying to make it right for them, but i'd personally spend some time on the safety issues as well. Don't take this the wrong way. peace

Nah, that would be a knock, not a clunk. lol peace

ditto John

@ April 10, 2009 9:27 PM in clunk in radiator ?

The house could have settled bringing the old boiler across the floor. Too many potentials. New boiler now pumping away? peace


@ April 10, 2009 9:24 PM in grundfos ifc's pump problems

The only issue i've ever had with them was years back Taco was using a rubber seat for a short time. If I had known to take them apart to find a rubber washer, wouldn't have soldered them while in the closed position. Anyone run into them mid-late 80's? Needless to say they went back to brass weight. peace

baseboard height

@ April 10, 2009 9:18 PM in Baseboard Installation Height

I do 3/4". New base board is designed much better than days of old. They have designed them so if someone installs them right on the floor, the front will still allow air circulation, not like the old stuff. Have you considered Haydon? Much better IMO. peace


@ April 10, 2009 6:06 PM in grundfos ifc's pump problems

I've been there done that with the built in check valves. Garbage JMO. Seems like you are back there cleaning out the plastic check valve, etc, and end up putting in the old reliable swetcheck. I just do it right from the start. They all have good intentions, untill we have to eat the labor to make it right. peace


@ April 10, 2009 6:06 PM in grundfos ifc's pump problems

sorry- repost


@ April 9, 2009 10:58 PM in Not enough hot water

Larry, keep in mind that all tankless coils are rated at 200 degrees F. Generally you need to maintain atleast 160-180 degrees to get any kind of output. Also the nozzle rating is gallons per hour, not per min. It will cycle on more often to maintain that higher temp. peace

looks real nice

@ April 9, 2009 10:52 PM in New Job Pics

it looks like you are off to a great start. nice work. Think spring. peace

As John said

@ April 9, 2009 10:44 PM in Thermopride Age?

Model and serial#. Age don't matter to those furnaces, I think they are like a fine wine. peace


@ April 9, 2009 10:40 PM in License renewals????????

You must live and work in Mass Gary? You gotta pay attention to expiration dates now for sure. Apply before your birthday just to be safe. peace

you da man John

@ April 9, 2009 6:03 PM in So What's the trick?

I bet he also tried to cut your service fee too? But you were only here 2o min. peace

gas problem

@ April 9, 2009 6:01 PM in No Heat From Gas Furnace

Are you sure you didn't leave anything out Scrook? lol

@ April 8, 2009 11:00 PM in So What's the trick?

Bob, that's the only time someone needs to flush a toilet, or open a faucet is when you have something apart in the basement. It's like punishment I guess

@ April 8, 2009 10:57 PM in So What's the trick?

The cooler the water the better. As Mark said, it can be done without draining the tank. Just be ready with what you are replacing. Once that vacuum fully breaks, put on your shower cap. Most important, be sure the circut breaker is off, and there is no pwer to the tank. Water and electricity is a bad combo. peace

@ April 8, 2009 10:45 PM in Howler

I had one whistle, but not howl. Was a faulty "O" ring. Now if we could only get one to sing, we could start a band. lol peace

@ April 8, 2009 10:40 PM in So What's the trick?

If it weren't for bad luck, i'd have no luck at all lol

@ April 8, 2009 10:39 PM in No Heat From Gas Furnace

Ron, sounds like a gas burner problem thingy. The blower clearly operates. It could be just one problem, but many potentials. I'm oil, so sorry I have no more input. What you'll need is a gas tech to get you warm again. Best of luck. peace

and luck?
