@ October 30, 2006 1:12 PM in is condensate neutralization absolutely neccesary?Hi Brad, Here is a picture of what I built. As far as pounds of rocks in it I would guess it is about 5 pounds of marble chips. The pump kicks on about 1 to 2 times a day. The boiler is an Ultra 80 that has been in service for about 2 years. I have not changed the chips since then.
@ October 30, 2006 10:51 AM in is condensate neutralization absolutely neccesary?How often would those marble chips need to be replaced? I built a neutralizer similar to the one that Brad posted. How do I know when they need to be replaced, or on average how long do they last? I know each installation is different. Thanks

@ February 9, 2006 12:32 PM in Best styrofoam cutting method.......(Starch)There are 2 good methods to cut foam. One would be using an electric carving knife. The other is one that I made with an electronics soldering iron attached to an old bread knife. Here is a good website. http://wolfstone.halloweenhost.com/HalloweenTech/fotmak_MakingFoamTools.html

@ August 1, 2005 8:45 PM in WM Ultra piping with IndirectHi Paul, The Ultra is like the Munchkin with the vision 1 package when there is a call on the DHW, the primary boiler pump drops off and the indirect pump takes over both duties. So when that DHW pump starts pushing water through the indirect and back to the boiler I think it is pushing it back up through the primary boiler pump and out into the main loop. That is why I'm not sure about the MW diag. Thanks, Chris
@ August 1, 2005 8:41 PM in WM Ultra piping with Indirectwhat I mean about the diag that MW gives with the Ultra. I piped it exactly like the picture. I'm sure that I'm getting ghosting back through the boiler circulator that is shown in black on the diag. MW does not say anything about a flow check on that section. Should I just swap out the 007 and put in one with an IFC??
@ August 1, 2005 1:34 PM in WM Ultra piping with IndirectHi Ron, Thanks, for the response. I do have 2 checks on the indirect. The pump has a check in it going into the indirect and there is a taco flow check on the out. My question is more on the return from the main loop the the boiler right by the boiler pump. WM does not have a check in there diag. and I was thinking that there should be a check to stop the return water from the indirect ghosting up the return from the main loop. The boiler pump does not run when there is a call for the indirect.
@ August 1, 2005 12:02 PM in WM Ultra piping with IndirectI was questioning my WM Ultra's piping the other day. I re-checked the manual and it is piped in accordance with the WM specs. So I figured that I would pose this question. Should there be some kind of check valve on the return side to the boiler right where the boiler pump is, but just before the return from the indirect tank. I'm thinking that I would probably get some ghost flow into the system when the indirect tank is calling for heat. I have noticed that the boiler piping up to the main loop is warm when the indirect pump is running. Any Ideas would greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chris
