you can post a sketch of this?

Be the bird

@ August 27, 2002 1:22 PM in Pump sizing

Yes, I'm providing the seed and birds are gathering. Ommmmmmmmmmmmm. Be the bird!

Not a tech either

@ August 27, 2002 1:02 PM in Pump sizing

I've never actualy worked. I watch the birdfeeder and dribble on my shirt.

I'm not an engineer

@ August 27, 2002 12:58 PM in Pump sizing

I'm a sociologist. We're more vague.

Just talking

to one of my buddies at GasNetworks. He was adding up their costs for this thing and realized they're giving away $77 worth of food to each person. And that's not counting the free beer. What does the whole day cost? $65. If you're in the area and not coming to this one you're really missing a great deal. Costs more to stay home!

He may be

deep into the installation already. If he were doing it from scratch he could figure his required high temperature and then set up a temperature drop, based on the minimum return temperature, say, 140 F. From there, he'd get his required flow rate and then the pipe size and then the pump head. It's all in Primary-Secondary Pumping Made Easy, not Pumping Away.

let's see

what he says.


@ August 27, 2002 12:26 PM in Pump sizing

He's got four million BTUH

I'm missing something

@ August 27, 2002 12:25 PM in Pump sizing

Dana, who figured the pump head? You need to know the pipe size before you can get the head.

Looking at their website I see that their largest meeting room can seat 100. That's may be theater seating, and if so, the room might be too small since I like our guests to have tables in front of them. Marianne will call and check on the square footage. Thanks, Alan.

Too bad

you two would certainly fit in with this crowd!

They haven't even told me where I'm staying yet. Hope to hear soon!

Need some advice

@ August 27, 2002 10:24 AM in California Steamin' (on such a winter's day) - Dan H.

I want to do a two-day steam seminar (residential and commercial) in the San Francisco Bay area in January. I'm looking for a suitable hotel that's easy to get to, has room for about 100 people and plenty of parking for service trucks. Any suggestions from you locals would sure be appreciated. Last time we did this we were in San Mateo. Any place better than that? Thanks.

I'll be doing them, Mark. That's why I don't want to hand them out that day. Anyone who takes notes will give them to me and I'll be right there to check them and ask for any clarifications on words I can't make out. I'm trying to keep the process as simple as possible. See you soon, pal.

Anything can happen

@ August 27, 2002 8:59 AM in Agathering of wetheads in vegas?????

Probably will!

in a gorgeous setting. Thanks, Terry.

Thanks for posting

Nice to get the info from the source. Come visit us again!

Our plan is to have volunteer scribes at the Gathering. What's in it for them? A nice discount at the bookstore that we'll have set up. Anyone who brings notes up to the table gets a discount coupon that they can use immediately. To avoid duplication of the ideas and comments collected, I'll be bringing all the notes home where I can edit them into a Give & Get type of ebooklet. As soon as I'm done, everyone who attended will get a copy by email. When we do the next Gathering (in the spring), everyone who registers will get the booklet from Marlborough. The third Gathering group (next summer) will get the notes from the first and second Gatherings, and so on. Thanks for the input, John. I think that the five Dealer's Choice tables will serve a purpose that's similar to what you had at your meeting, but on a smaller scale. See you then!

I just got this email from a homeowner:

@ August 26, 2002 11:38 AM in Find a Contractor - Dan H.

Hang in there with your efforts on this. I live near Hartford, Connecticut, yet when I type in my zip code, the nearest contractor is still 48.9 miles away. What's wrong with these Constitution Staters? This is the heart of hydronic heating territory. Wish I could get my own fuel guy to connect up with you, but like many in the business around here, he feels most comfortable working with the familiar and going outside that realm just doesn't seem to be cost or time effective for him. Meanwhile, I've been soaking up whatever I can as a homeowner for the past 2 or 3 years and really enjoy reading the posts. Keep up the good work. (In the Land of the Blind, the one-eyed man is king.)

Name that bar

No bar too far!

Rare indeed. Good eye, Cheese!
