    Seems like it was a huge project. Well done.

    I took the easy way out and sis all my boiler plumbing in PEX. That iron pipe is less fun.

    Its something I never thought of! If all the elbows require a second circulator may give Pex a try !

    Glad I read to catch up before responding to the pic of your “smile” and the equipment responsible- I would have donned the same reaction.
    Great thread y’all, excellent workmanship/teamwork, too!!!

    After many delays and setbacks had the first small fire today . The unit only smoked for about six or seven minutes then burnt clean no smoke !

    It is so much quieter than the old Jetstream! campinspecter has really done a great job getting this all together with all the delays and setbacks he encountered.

    campinspecter has been learning how to fire our new boiler. We decided to video a start up and show what he has been doing. It is a lot cleaner and quieter than the old Jetstream.

    It's had some hiccups, but Dean at Smokeless Heat has been very helpful and informative!
