You are more than likely going to have to scrap it.
Does the basement flood often?

@ October 12, 2013 9:28 AM in Munchkin blower issues....make sense. I did notice a small water stain on the motor cover. As far as the venting goes they used a couple tees and there is separation. by 24" or so but its on the same plane. I need to go back and run a combustion test anyways. ty

@ October 6, 2013 5:18 PM in Any concerns about Rinnai boiler?to the boiler market. I have not installed one as of yet. That being said I have a couple colleagues that have and they like them. The are a true boiler not a tankless water heater that just claims the boiler badge.

@ October 1, 2013 7:24 AM in stainless steel Leaking Indirectswater heater don't have a glass coating. I have started using the Weil Mclain Aqua-plus water htrs. They have an anode rod in them to combat w/ the corrosion process.
@ September 30, 2013 7:45 PM in EK2K...Any one have....HW zv. Two zones are used on a 4 unit manager. I am adding a third.
@ September 30, 2013 6:28 PM in EK2K...Any one have....a legible diagram that I can use to wire in an extra zone valve on a classic energy manager?
@ September 28, 2013 9:13 PM in iseries and transformerthe 24 terminals off the Taco SR control. I have done this before w/o any issues. The zvc control is a maybe. It depends on how many and much the zone valves draw off.

@ September 27, 2013 5:52 PM in AcronymsWhat are some of the ones that give you trouble.? Happy to interpret.....
@ September 27, 2013 7:00 AM in mixing valveBut you will not get much if any flow to that zone. You need to pull the water out of the mixed port of the typical mixing valve.
@ September 23, 2013 10:52 PM in Low-Loss Header: am I understanding this correctly?right.

@ September 23, 2013 8:00 PM in 2 Gallon electric water heater.or a float vent. http://www.taco-hvac.com/products.html?current_category=87
@ September 23, 2013 5:14 PM in 2 Gallon electric water heater.a lot of work. An electric towel warmer would have been a simpler approach. I would add a hy-vent where the PRV is and add a 1/2 cup of dawn dishwasher detergent. 99% chance that works.... Fix is from Mark Eatherton.
@ September 21, 2013 6:40 PM in Mark Eathertona week here and still no word... I m getting concerned.
