static interference

@ September 22, 2009 5:40 PM in Static

If oil, I've found that ingition xformer will do that. May need to change it.

solar pool panels

@ June 18, 2008 5:38 PM in Soalr Pool Heating

Wilo ECO

@ May 22, 2008 9:13 AM in Wilo Pumps

Info from my supplier is ECO available only in 230v. Is the residential model 120v?

pool heat

@ April 26, 2008 11:22 AM in Boiler Opinions

Why not solar? Pool panels not that expensive....especially when fossil fuels involved.


@ April 23, 2008 12:28 AM in Not sure what to say (GrandPAH)

What a way to give a good boiler a bad name! Where do these installers come from?


@ April 5, 2008 4:40 PM in Side arm

Conversion? To what? Can't put tprv on hot outlet, & use top side tapping for aquastat? Or aquastat on hot outlet?

solar kit

@ April 2, 2008 12:39 PM in If you work with glycols

Just back from a solar seminar... nice kit to have, compact & well organized. $$. :)


@ March 8, 2008 7:09 PM in in-floor radiant or Euro-style radiators

Ceiling radiant panels?

Combo systems

@ March 8, 2008 7:07 PM in using geothermal to supplement bailers

Solar? - no digging - pool heat in summer/shoulder seasons.


@ March 8, 2008 7:03 PM in Taking your complaint to YouTube

Wow! They told him why it froze.... the dummy can't figger it out. Needs make-up air! Should be a way to reply on U-tube, to show him the way.... :)


@ March 7, 2008 1:19 PM in hot water jackhammer

Got a woodpecker in the attic or pounding on your walls/chimney? (had one once fell into my chimney!) :)

high temps

@ March 6, 2008 10:31 PM in pro press and solar

If the possibility exists, then it must be guarded against. I think a safety net is required.

Air exchange

@ March 6, 2008 12:02 PM in Thermally Amazing Shell and System

Is there an air exchange system? ERV/HRV?

Reflective ins.

@ March 5, 2008 10:42 PM in refletive insulation value

So... cut him loose. Hope you already got paid, hope your design (btu/sq.ft) included the design temps & R-19 to reduce backloss. The rest is his.

re: 'hot shots'

@ March 5, 2008 6:47 PM in My radiant is a PoS!..............hb

Trouble is... thats almost the norm... looked at one a while back - same but no "plates", no insulation, piping stapled to trusses! (-35 design temp) Think it works...& is efficient???? :(


@ March 2, 2008 7:29 PM in Mixing valves, Controls, multi-zone radiant

Mike, pg. 17/18 shows condensate piping etc. For the multi-zone radiant - a mixing block w/controls?


@ March 2, 2008 5:39 PM in Hydro Coil Vs. Gas Furnace?

Is your tankless rated for more than dhw? What is the efficiency rating? Your heat loss requirement? Do you need A/C ?


@ February 29, 2008 10:34 AM in pro press and solar

Dhm.. yes, has cable in insulation. See caleffi site - solar products. Haven't personally seen/touched :(, only available thru supplier in Alberta, Canada (to me, anyway)

not propress

@ February 28, 2008 11:49 PM in pro press and solar

Caleffi.... but stainless 'corrugated' piping.. issues w/drainback? turbulence/high resistance to flow?


@ February 25, 2008 11:31 PM in a or b furnace nozzle

Hello again, pook. A nozzle is best used as specified by mfg. However, that said, a hollow spray nozzle can give a 'quieter', or less noisy flame(or burn) for a given burner/combustion chamber combo. The best scenario is to set up with a combustion analyzer to achieve optimum efficiency. Here again, a pro is required.


@ February 24, 2008 9:50 PM in ng to lp conversion @ 125000 btu

Pook... by the questions you have asked, you have no experience with gas conversions. Therefor giving you info is a risk I will not take. As I stated before.. get a pro to do this for you. Property & life I will not put in hands with no skills.


@ February 24, 2008 12:03 PM in ng to lp conversion @ 125000 btu

Sorry, pook - not a DIY job...too much to go wrong. You need a pro for this. :)
