be fine. It just will take longer to come up to temp and you may have some water hammer.

@ April 30, 2011 10:44 PM in Who sells panel rads in Mass area?

what they deserve. They will prob. end up  paying more in fuel costs than they will "save" in the install costs. Since the boiler was modified maybe a call to the gas sup pier or the AHJ would be in in order as a life safety issue.....?  Hey at least document what you found so that IF there is ever an issue that it does not come back to bite you....kpc

who truly knows steam and then replace. Since you are now at the end of the heating season you have time to look at diff. companies. Where are you located?

looks like to me....

@ April 22, 2011 7:26 AM in Bad Radiant w Pex Bubbles

that the pex delaminated due to way too high a temp water being run though it.... That would make sence on a cold day , the system not heating up, and someone wanting warm feet..... they prob cranked the water heater. Big mess. It can be fixed.... that is if they start again. kpc

Just got an email from a customer as to a E 44 lockout code. on a Prestige solo I installed installed a couple years ago....he reset it and it is running...  manual was not real helpfull. Anyone have this issue before?

Don't know...

@ April 11, 2011 9:57 AM in buderas indirect water heater

what to say about your supplier. I have never had that issue w/ warranty claims. Not that i have had that many issues. Water quality has everything to do w/ it. There is not one water heater (indirect or otherwise) that meets every persons needs. Some people can pay more than others. The ORIGINAL poster wanted advice about an indirect that would fit in a space. I gave him my thoughts about the s120. It is ok. However it not super well insulated compared to the ST or LT tanks. Thats all. I'm sure you can find Sepco water heaters out there from the 60's still in use. I have a ssu-60 far no issues after 6+ years... hopefully it stays that way! The Buderus tanks leave a lot of room for then to wiggle out of the warrty.


@ April 11, 2011 7:47 AM in buderas indirect water heater

1 and it was under warrnty. TT would be nice too but height was an issue according to the poster. The buderus s-120 really is just a 7 yr tank.

It is a budget...

@ April 10, 2011 1:29 PM in buderas indirect water heater

indirect. The insulation on it is really substandard for Buderus standards. I have installed a few and they are ok.... but they do have standby losses higher that most. If it were my home I would opt for a LT tank or a brand like HTP/ Superstor.

sounds like.....

@ April 3, 2011 9:40 AM in Trianco Heatmaker II

its the ignighter control board.. do not handle the ignighter w/ bare hands. that will shorten its life... that may be 1/2 the problem. Follow the wires back to the board. do you have power there? Is there something loose?

How do you protect......

@ March 31, 2011 7:13 PM in How do you protect......

The lines when using fiberglass insulation. After a year or two the zeston tape does not hold up to the UV. Duct tape the same ?

@ March 30, 2011 5:41 PM in Poly "B" and Glycol

I have 1 system out there that has been glycolled for years. As a rule I do not like gycol. This one has a flat plate HX on it. Most all poly butyelene has no O2 barrier.... some did. There was never an issue w/ the pipe it was the fittings and aluminum crimp rings. 

I have about...

@ March 29, 2011 9:18 PM in Combination heating and domestic water boilers?

8 of these out there. Embassy ONEX also goes by Smith GC 160, Peerles 160 combi... same unit. It is compact, produces decent Hot water, can be adjusted to meet the heat load and has outdoor reset. It is smaller than the TT excellence... which is also good.

Are you thinking....

@ March 23, 2011 7:59 AM in Polyethylene Piping for a boiler

about Pex-AL-Pex.... aka Fosta Pex by Viega?

these are neat....

@ March 19, 2011 8:21 AM in Buderus rumbling and draft problem?

but if the boiler temp was low... and its a 3 pass boiler, the chimney will not pull much draft. Is it a riello burner?
