The 'Pictures Of Your Stove' thread is one of the longest running and most popular on the NEPACrossroads.com website. How about a thread exclusively for pictures of your boilers?

My AA 130M was installed in 2007 with a primary/secondary system and salvaged cast iron radiators.

Only a novice would install radiation near his boiler!

This was definitely overkill for my little house but individual room control is nice.

The yellow auger gives it a sort of a race car like appeal. Another great looking install. I'm having a hard time sorting out the hot water tank lines though, and since I plan something similar (whereby no one will likely be able to figure mine out either) I need to do some more study of that end of it.

I've noticed that most of the coal boiler installs feature individual zone circulators. Does anyone have an install that features zone valves in the place of zone circulators?
