now that you mention it, i didnt a purchase boiler yet, so i dont have a manual. i was thinking about a WM ultra and i havent installed any yet. a friend told me that it requires primary secondary piping. i just like to have a good diagram to go by . something general. i do like your quote cris, im a big believer in that. if only the homeowers around the world would realize that!!

of course
