Installing My 110K Tomorrow!

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

Today was not a good day.

I couldn't get a brass valve soldered, then I spent half the day trying to fix a leak in a union only to find out that it was a bad casting making it leak.

To top that off, I went to fix the kitchen sink, and found out I didn't have the parts I need.

After I cut the copper downstairs........

Tomorrow is another day. :)

had a day like that last weekend. Flooded my boiler room ruined three drills and a circular saw. Thats the last time I listen to my wife when she calls me back in the house. Your project is interesting. Never knew that about the water supply between the spirovent and tank. Always wondered why they had a 1/2 thread off the bottom of the honeywell. I figure no system is perfect we can only wait till next summer to try to get it there.
